If you were one of the lucky 500+ advertising, PR or social pros who attended Interactive Day 2011, you probably noticed a trend throughout the day – Bailey Gardiner was everywhere. Being the creatively-charged overachievers we are, we wanted to share our San Diego insight in the techiest (geekiest) way possible – through QR codes, a mobile app and multiple tweets. Naturally, we held one of our famous brainstorms to come up with the Brain Grease iPhone app, shared our love for innovation by making people work via QR code to win iPods and tweeted our way through the conference.
You may have noticed our QR codes on the walls, tables, mirrors and counters of the restrooms. Our Orange Couch even made an appearance the following day for ADMERICA! at our BG coffee truck meet up with Joes on the Nose. Indra Gardiner moderated a panel on Twitter Stories with Crosby Noricks from Red Door Interactive and Alex Funk from Covario, while Jon Bailey (aka San Diego Ad Club President) strolled the halls with some pretty amazing glasses on. Why make our presence known? Because excitement is contagious and we love taking the lead to amp up our fellow agency peers – ultimately building an even stronger marketing community in San Diego.
Ryan Thompson interviewed some of the speakers from the event which was captured on video thanks to our friends at SOIClave. Interviews included Andrew Solmssen from Possible Worldwide, Joel Book from Exact Target, Rand Fishkin from SEOMoz, Ryan Berger from The Berger Shop, Jake Fields from Treeline Interactive, Mike Hodges from SignOn San Diego, Jason Sadler from Iwearyourshirt.com, Chad Robley from Mindgruve, Jeanette Best from USAopoly, and our Ad Club Co-Presidents.
