    This year at #soslam we definitely have to get a better picture together! Looking forward to seeing you, the gang, and all the great speakers.

  • OK, OK I know these pictures aren;t the best and my daughter said “Hey, you need a new outfit” but all the pics were taken at the same event. Only ones I could find quickly!  Will do a better job at Social Slam. Should be quite a homecoming!

  • Hey Mark! Glad to see you are getting out there, and are getting the gigs you deserve too. It goes without saying I am extremely excited about our event for Wales in September, looking forward to seeing you in the flesh! (or in that suit even!) 

  • We need to get one of these going in Upstate New York… 

  • I may even wear a NEW suit. Just for you. We will rock it in Wales. No doubt!

  • Let’s do it. 

  • Ok, can we just point to the post as evidence for the ROI of social media.

    Oxford! For goodness sake. I feel such a send of pride for you and your accomplishments.  Luckily for me I can say I knew Mark when and equally as good, I call you “friend”.

    Continued success, hope our paths cross again soon. 

  • Wishing you an abundance of fun, and joy with all of your meet-ups, your travels, and your mentoring video series on “Social media from scratch” debut Mark on (promotional news)  ~Rae

  • Awesome Mark… But it looks like I’m gonna have to travel if I want to participate in a conference. Maybe it’s up to me to start a kick-ass conference here in SE Michigan for next year!

    BTW, you were great on your CBS morning appearance!

  • Wow Mark, you’ll be keeping your airport shuttle busy this summer. Looking forward to SoSlam in April… nice to be able to say, “see you soon.”

  • I hope your shoulder can take all this galavanting, my friend.  Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories from our time in Memphis with those photos.

  • The business case for the social web is “you just never know!” : ) 

  • Ha! Thanks for that Dr. Rae! 

  • Do it Tony.  Might be a niche for you. Thanks for the kind words! 

  • Oh it will be SO GREAT to see you and so many friends!  Social Slam is the {grow} home coming!! 

  • A catalytic meeting to be sure!  Look forward to seeing you at Social Slam! 

  • “Social Media Marketing At Its Best”. That’s only one of the positive things I believe Mark Schaefer represents. All of us at MLT Creative are very proud to be hosting a free webinar with Mark as our expert guest. Please join us tomorrow (Wed. 3/28) at 2 pm EST for the live event.

    Sure CBS Morning News beat us to the punch Monday morning but we have him for a whole hour on Wednesday!

    Join us to learn from the Tao of Twitter master and author of “Return On Influence” himself. I wouldn’t miss it.

  • Congratulations! That’s quite the tour. I hope you have some roadies to help you out. Best wishes for safe travels, Mark.

  • Thanks for hosting this Billy!

  • Yeah. I’m my own self-contained roadie : )
