It was a pleasure to be included as one of the guest speakers at an Internet marketing conference where I was addicted to joining every year in the Philippines.

Yesterday, I talked about driving solid sales, traffic, and conversions through inbound and Facebook plus I shared a case study about a successful crowdfunding campaign that we have done for our clients.

Since the first day, the conference threw full packs of information, and I thought my brain was like doing a hardcore training in a gym. Honestly, it was the scariest hour of my life that I’ve experienced since it was my first time to talk at a conference.

  3. Jayson Bagio, founder of SEOteky.com
  4. Sean Si, founder, and editor-in-chief of SEO Hacker
  5. Kim Tyrone Agapito
  6. Eduardo Joven of Pinoyrecipe.net
  7. Sheila Dela Peña
  8. Scott Yu, co-founder of Qwikwire
  9. Paul Agabin of Wooka Interactive (I remember those chocolates!)

… and a lot more. Socialization and exchanges of ideas about the Internet marketing industry are the best!

The Deck

Here’s my deck from the event, which I prepared for everyone.

What Matters

You. What matters is you, solely. Since the first minute that I stood in front of the audience, what I aimed was to tell few basic but effective Facebook marketing strategies that I used for a business case story.

Although I thought I suck on public speaking (since it was my first time), I was thankful for those wonderful people who have sent some great feedbacks regarding my presentation on Twitter.
