In 2010, comScorer estimated that more than 45.5 million Americans owned a smartphone. That number has since grown to 65.8 million people as of January 2011. While many businesses have created mobile versions of their websites and/or optimized their existing sites for use on a mobile phone, small business owners lag behind. In an app-driven world, taking your small business marketing can be daunting. There are plenty of ways to leverage mobile marketing for your small business without a large investment. Navin and John will take attendees through the basics of mobile marketing by sharing best practices on how mobile lends itself to many different industries from restaurants to real estate to independent retailers. The session will leave attendees with executable strategies and tactics for taking their businesses mobile.
During the same time on Tue, May 24th, 3:45-4:45PM, Shashi Bellamkonda, Social Media Director, Network Solutions will be presenting a session on "Feel the Love: Managing Online Reputation for Your Business."

Shashi's efforts in Online Reputation have won multiple industry awards and have been published as a case study in the Big Book of Social Media by Robert Fine. Shashi has also written a chapter in the newly published book"Dancing with Digital Natives: Staying in Step with the Generation That's Transforming the Way Business Is Done" Publisher: Information Today, Inc.
