When attending good ones, the challenge has always been, how to deal with the tidal wave of great information? How to apply what you are hearing in your business.
My conclusion? Prioritize what makes sense, put a timeline to it, appreciate the rest of what you learned, but understand your limitations (yes, even you have limits). Then implement.
Having attended one of the premier conferences for small businesses, Infusioncon 2012, this post contains a summary of tweets from the event. If you are curious what Infusionsoft announced. Find it here.

Over 70% of people that do use QR codes send the person to a non mobile friendly website..that makes no sense. – Chris Brogan

Chris Brogan talking about Google +. Maybe he can convince me it isn’t a major bomb like I predicted months ago. #Icon12
More of what Chris Brogan shared here
- Stop using QR Codes on Social Media or a website…they are already online!
- Over 70% of people that do use QR codes send the person to a non-mobile friendly website…that makes no sense.
- Be sure to check your website for how mobile friendly it is as over 60% of traffic is now coming from mobile devices.
- Be aware of what you are showing to your visitors when they come to your site. What do you want them to do? He suggested removing the social media icons in the sidebar as that is not really what you want them to do, why offer them such an easy way to leave your site? (have never heard that, pretty cool)
- If you are not sure what type of videos to make, do Frequently asked questions videos about your product or affiliate products.
