Earlier this year, it was announced that I was going to be the moderator for a panel discussion on our book, The Social Golf Course, at the Crittenden Golf Conference on October 2 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
We will be discussing:
- Old Marketing Tactics vs. New Marketing Tactics
- How Social Media Increases Revenue
- Content Creation: How to Create a Compelling and Engaging Social Presence
- How to Think Socially
It was an honor to be selected as a presenter for one of the largest golf conferences in the United States and I was even more honored once I was able to select the panelists for our discussion.
