So what are the real opportunities?

To find out more, Copeland is bringing mobile marketing heavyweight Simon Salt of Dallas to Victoria in September to spend a few days with us and help us kick our mobile skills up a few notches.

Simon Salt, InkSlingers CEO and author of Social Location Marketing As the CEO of Texas agency IncSlingers and author of the recently published Social Location Marketing, Simon is the guy other social media big hitters turn to.
