We all know that just having a website, no matter how great, is not enough to make sales in the automotive industry. LEARN MORE
On the latest episode of the MarketPunch Podcast, I was joined by two of my favorite #AutoMarketing pals, Megan Barto - Marketing Director at Ciocca Honda & Hyundai and Robert Karbaum - eCommerce Manager at Weins Canada, to talk about the DrivingSales Executive Summit.
Before we started our conversation about all things #DSES, Megan (by way of Eric Miltsch) passed along a handy tip that I wanted to share with all of you!
If you plan on attending #DSES (or any other conference for that matter) you're definately going to want to use this tip to simplifiy your note taking efforts during the event.
When you attend a conference like the DrivingSales Executive Summit you more than likely want to do two things - take notes, and share what you're learning on social media (mostly via the Twitter).
However, you know that as fast as the information comes at you, it's practically impossible to take notes AND tweet it out at the same time.
That's where this handy tip comes in.
By harnessing the power of IFTTT, Twitter and Google Drive you can create a special recipe that will effectively turn your tweets into your conference notes.
Put the pen and paper down folks and check this out...
When you are at the conference, simply tweet everything that you want to remember and tag it with a specific hashtag. For this example I'm using the official summit hashtag, #DSES.
After you setup a specific recipe on IFTTT, each time you tweet something with #DSES, IFTTT will automatically append a Google Spreadsheet with the info contained in that tweet.
Keep tweeting with #DSES during the entire conference, and at the end you'll have a single spreadsheet of all your tweets that you can then go back through at your conveneince.
The side benefit of doing this is that you'll be sharing all your takeaways from the keynotes, breakouts and contests for your peers and colleagues to enjoy as well.
How awesome is that?
Getting this set up is easy. I've already created and publicly shared this recipe on IFTTT so you can quickly implement it yourself with just a few clicks.
Will you be using IFTTT FTW are the 2014 DrivingSales Executive Summit? Let me know in the comments below.
See you in just a few short days in Las Vegas!
