Here’s the video from the session I did yesterday in Nashville at #pcn11 (PodCampNashville11). Once again, a special thanks to Chris Ross for getting this video ready to go for me.

Wordpress is a powerful blogging platform, but the sheer volume of information that’s already out there is overwhelming! This session taught me that WordPress is so much more than just a blog. With so many features, both inherent in the program and via plug-ins, WordPress can easily support full websites making it a great Content Management System (CMS).

With thousands of plug-ins, it can be hard to know what search terms to even use when searching the web to find what you’re looking for, let alone choosing the right plug-in for your needs.

Level Up Your Marketing: Using Gamification to Enhance Your Marketing Campaigns
Ask anyone who’s played World of Warcraft or a similar game for a while, and you’ll usually hear the same thing: ”I’m hooked!” WoW has been around for nearly 12 years, and other games online garner similar sized - and just as fanatical - fan bases. How is it that a game - with “imaginary” achievements and bragging rights - can grab someone’s attention, keep it, and even bolster it for long periods of time?
Mitch is a gamer and digital strategist from Nashville, TN. In this session, he’ll go over a few of the top games on the market today - World of WarCraft, Final Fantasy XIV, and Destiny - and will look under the hood to see what marketing and psychological methods they use to attract customers.
We’ll look at real case studies and observations that we can distill down into actionable points that you can do now to turn your marketing campaigns around.
