Business Blog Summit San Francisco August 18th-19th 2005
I am going to be speaking at the business blog summit in San Francisco on August 18th for the following topic.

John Cass, Buzz Bruggeman

As many organizations have learned the hard way, a good product and happy customers isn't enough--you've got to fuel the fire. This session will feature real-world campaign success stories where tapping into online communities and enhancing discussion yielded impressive results.
