The Much Anticipated SXSW Interactive 2016 PanelPicker is Live!

August 12, 2015

The much anticipated SXSW Interactive PanelPicker is live and I need your vote! I made a quick video about my proposed session,  Marketing Your Way to Success with Social Media.


Read on if you’d like a little more info. Even if you don’t read the rest,  I sincerely thank you for your vote HERE. 

For the past 4 years, every March, I make my way to Austin for a magical event called SXSW. This year, even though I only had 48 hours to rock SXSW, I managed to meet my favorite late night host, Jimmy Kimmel; learn about sports marketing to millennials from the Indianapolis Colts Punter, Pat McAfee; connect with the brightest Entrepreneurs including Erik Qualman, Tim Ferriss and more. I also was fortunate enough to speak at the SXSW V2V conference last month in July.

Pie chart: 30% staff, 30% public votes, 40% advisory boardDuring my recap of SXSW V2V I gave tips on becoming a SXSW Speaker. Their selection process is very comprehensive. Part of the process is the SXSW Panel Picker where the public votes for sessions they want to see. They combine this with votes from staff and their advisory board to ensure everyone gets a fair chance. Since the panel picker just launched, I need your vote!

My proposed session is: Marketing Your Way to Success with Social Media. I presented this at SXSW V2V to a packed room and received such great feedback that I want to customize my session and share it with an even larger audience in Austin.

I do my best to be a resource and to help when I can. Today, I am trusting that you will all help me out with your vote. It will take less than 5 minutes and allow me to share my passion and livelihood of teaching others how to effectively use social media to grow their business.

Here’s how to vote for my session:

2.  After clicking the link, login or create an account. This takes a minute and can be done though Facebook.
3. Click the thumbs up button to vote.
4. Leave a comment and share why you are excited about my topic. It’s very important to leave even after you vote because it creates conversation. This also allows me to track who voted.

Once you vote for my session, you’ll be logged in and can vote for any other sessions you like. Other sessions I recommend are Jessica Tunon’s Netwalking session and Chic CEO Stephanie Burns’, Unreasonable Requests: How To Ask for Outrageous session. PanelPicker voting will close on Friday, September 4 (11:59 PM CT) so get your votes in before then!
