Welcome to the Livestream Deals podcast, I’m Ross Brand. June 20th and 21st is Social Media Week Lima, Ohio. This year’s theme is the Human Experience, taking emerging technologies and pairing them with relationship marketing. I’m honored to be speaking on the Live Video Panel along with Mia Voss, Brian Fanzo and Kate Volman. Other speakers include the husband and wife tandem of Brian Kramer and Courtney Smith Kramer, Cathy Hackl, Carlos Gil, Mike Allton, Demian Ross, Tiffany Lanier, Mike Gingrich and many more.

Since I spoke with Jessika, they’ve added a topic on running a Facebook group around a passion to create a profit. Also, Social Media Week Lima is kicking off the 10-day, 3-conference #RoadtoSocial trip with social media influencers traveling from Lima, Ohio to Wichita, Kansas and then Denver, Colorado for Social Media Day Denver at the end of the month. I get the feeling there might just be a few livestreams along the way!
