Dallas, Texas (PRUnderground) May 26th, 2015
The Mayor of Addison, Texas has officially proclaimed June 30 “Social Media Day” in honor of Mashable’s Social Media Day celebration and the Rocks Digital Marketing Conference to be held in Addison on June 29 and 30.
The Rocks Digital Marketing Conference is a national digital marketing conference that brings together expert speakers to present on the topics of content, local search, search engine optimization (SEO), social media, web, mobile, and business development. With over 30 sessions to choose from, the projected 300+ attendees traveling from around the U.S. will learn from the best in the industry.
Social Media Day began in 2010 when tech industry giant Mashable had the first proclamation signed by Dean Fortin, Mayor of Victoria, B.C., Canada. Cities and countries around the world quickly followed suit. Bernadette Coleman and Lissa Duty, co-organizers for the 4th annual Rocks Digital Marketing Conference (formerly DFW Rocks Social Media Day) are excited that the Town of Addison recognizes the importance of social media and the impact it has made on its citizens.
Lissa, who was the first to organize an all-day Social Media Day Conference in 2012, shares that “Social media is so much more than friends and family sharing photos, status updates and news on Facebook. Through social networking websites, businesses can reach their current and future customers quickly and easily. Celebrating the ability for all of us to connect globally makes great sense, and Mashable was brilliant in proposing this in 2010.”
As the Social Media Day Proclamation states: “Many citizens have used and continue to use these platforms to hold Meetups and Tweetups at various city businesses, educating others on the use of Social Media to further the prosperity of local business and keep moving our great city forward in shopping, tourism, attracting new visitors and future residents ….” and “June 30th is Social Media Day – the Rocks Digital Marketing Conference is in Addison for gathering together to celebrate and honor this day.”
Each year the mission of the conference is to bring new and exciting speakers, opportunities, and value to Mashable’s Social Media Day celebration. With over 30 speakers generously sharing their knowledge with those in attendance, the atmosphere is exhilarating and inspiring. All participants – even the speakers – look forward to learning and networking with their industry peers in this celebration each year.
Bernadette, who in 2014 merged her local conference with Lissa’s, states, “I entered the digital marketing industry at the beginning of the boom, and have seen many changes over the years. As CEO of an Inc. 500 award-winning agency, I know what it takes to guide a business to the top and keep it there. At Rocks Digital, we celebrate social media every day, and are honored to have the opportunity to host and celebrate along with the rest of the world on Social Media Day.”
A sample of the speakers includes industry influencers such as Loren Baker, founder of Search Engine Journal; Tony Cecala, organizer for the largest WordPress Group in the U.S.; Patty Farmer, Founder and Organizer for BizLink Speaking, Business Development and Networking Association; Jerod Morris, VP of Marketing at Rainmaker.FM Podcast Network, a Copyblogger Media company; Martin Shervington, recognized for his knowledge in Google Plus (he has over one million followers); Brian Sullivan, organizer for Big Design, one of the largest UX Conferences in the world; plus John Sparks and Eric Tung, both Top-100 Social Media Power Influencers.
