Social Fresh Conference – Nothing On Workers Comp (Almost)


Social Fresh Conference – Worth Attending

The Social Fresh Conference in Tampa is very interesting.   I had attended the last Social Fresh Conference last year in San Diego.   This is one conference that has nothing to do with Workers Comp – but then again as Workers Comp is so far behind technologically, a conference on social media should be great.

Why did I come back if it does not apply to WC?   Google provides almost 90% of the traffic on the Internet.  If one types in Workers Compensation as a search term in Google, you will have 20,600,00 results.    Most people do not read the searches past the first page- also known as the Golden Triangle of Google search results.

This is the agenda of the Social Fresh conference.  It will be worth your time for the 2016 conference if you brush up against social media in your job.

I have to do Fresh Wars now.   That was interesting. I met someone that markets for Coors Light.   Buffer is now presenting,    They are putting up all their financials. That is crazy, but at least they will be a memorable company.  The young lady presenting is prepared to the hilt.

I actually met someone here from a Workers Comp carrier.   I tried to catch her and the company’s name.   Most of the people here are local to Tampa and Florida.

I will post more on the conference later in the day.
