Guided Goals Podcast: Social Media Marketing World 2016 Edition

SMMW16Last week, during  Social Media Examiner’s Social Media Marketing World 2016, I caught up with some speakers and social media experts. In addition to the importance of IRL networking and fun, live video was clearly a huge theme of this year’s conference. So, with that in mind I caught up with some previous and future podcast guests to see what it is they love about the conference and get their take on what people need to know.

I spoke with Jenn Herman, Viveka von Rosen, Kim Garst, Jon Wuebben, and Kristi Hines for this special edition of the Guided Goals Podcast.
