effective during the various stages of the travel buying process.

becoming routine?  Do you need some inspiration? This session will feature case studies
on successful social media campaigns from other destinations in Texas and across the
country.  We'll cover Facebook, Pinterest, blogging, Instagram, and more.  Learn what
they did, how they did it, and why they were successful campaigns.

Description: Fran will help us get organized and manage our time better with online
tools and mobile apps that help us stay on track, manage our projects, and monitor
our social media channels more easily.  From managing your email glut with an add-on

by step through using these tools to make your work and life easier.

2:15 – 2:30pm

2:30 – 3:40pm                                                                                                                            Why a LinkedIn Company Page is a Smart Move for Economic Development, Sales Teams and SEO
Sheila Scarborough, Writer, Trainer, Speaker, Tourism Currents

Description:  Poor LinkedIn; in all the hollering about Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., folks seem to overlook THE purely business-focused social networking site. What the heck - it's only 225 million people and one of the few strong B2B social channels, with a lot of SEO (search engine optimization) impact. Interested? Bring your laptop and get ready to beef up your LinkedIn Company Page so it can help you not only with tourism and hospitality, but also for economic development and getting a little Google Juice while you're at it. 

3:40 – 3:45pmQ&A, Closing Remarks
