Ok, it’s the middle of the night and I’m sitting in a rock hard airport chair, but my mind is on the takeaways that I have from the SMX Social Media conference. Much of this I knew, but it was heavily re-enforced. The bigest benefit, as with most of these small shows, is the contacts…
Are posted on flickr. Enjoy
To those of you who’ve followed up without a reply, so sorry. I have every one of those messages here and will do my best to contact you… if not today, soon.
Dear Retailer. When I snap a photo of something, I’m not here to scam you. I’m not the front for a big Chinese manufacturer who is about to knock off your stuff and put you out of business. I’m not planning out an elaborate “Mission Impossible”-style robbery. I’m using my phone to shop. You need to get ready for this, and embrace it.
A terrific brain trust of folks answered great questions that I’ve tried to aggregate into an organized list you may find very helpful. Enjoy! The Q/A was especially helpful and added a lot to the session.

Mobile Search: Beyond 10 Blue Links
Fascinating presentation at SMX Local Mobile.
Mobile searchers don’t want lists of web pages – they want answers or fast ways to take action. Mobile search providers are increasingly experimenting with alternative interfaces, such as location-aware browsing, voice recognition, text messaging and other innovative approaches. Learn about these new efforts and how they potentially impact mobile search marketing efforts.
(room sparse, but excellent presentation!)
