Last Thursday 30th of August 2012 Reach Digital was part of the Small Business BIG Marketing Melbourne event which was all about learning from Australia’s finest business marketers, connecting with other business owners and marketing professionals, and finding out about the latest marketing tools.
As exhibitor of the event, what we found to be most fascinating was how enthusiastic small businesses were about all the new array of digital tools available to them including Social Media & Mobile Web.
Expert speakers include Peter Williams (Deloitte Digital); Dominic Thurbon (ChangeLabs) and Rockstar marketer, Paul McCarthy. The other amazing thing was how excited people came out from the talks and just wanted to find out more of what was to offer in this new digital space.
From the stand we interacted with the audience via Twitter following the official conversation #Hashtag #VicBizFest of the event. People who interacted with us both came to see us at the stand and followed us back! This is a great example of how you can utilize Social Media to benefit your business and anyone can do it!
We thank the awesome people and business owners we met that day both personally and over Social Media.
A special shout out to the following for continuing the conversation afterwards!

Thank you all for connecting on the day and also later via various Social Channels.
So in summary would we do this again?
YES most definitely !
it was a great experience and we very much enjoyed every second of it!
Below are some photos of the event, these were taken during the down time because as soon as we heard the applauses from the Key Speaker ending their talks we were swamped with business owners and loving it!
