An international social media conference took place in Harrisburg last month, entitled ‘Social Media at Work.’ The project took months of hard work and various individuals in the Harrisburg region put great efforts into it. These included, published authors, philosophers, local Harrisburg experts along with other professionals. Alan Brocious (owner of the New Age Lead Generation), Stephanie Gehman (marketing director of Harrisburg International Airport) and Anne Deeter Gallaher (CEO of the Deeter Gallaher Group) were among the other experts participating in the conference.
Topics discussed at the conference included: the role of social media in marketing strategy and mobile marketing. And it seemed like social media was really working since five million tweets were received on Twitter and many FB mentions, etc. Thus instead of being tacked with “bankruptcy,” the word on the Harrisburg street became “business.”
