They took away some great lessons from our speakers at Y’all Connect Presented by Alabama Power, as seen below.

“A New Series: Newsletter Tips for Missionaries” The Missions and Media Guy
Michael Kline found a bonus in sitting on Taylor Robinson’s session:
“His advice could be applicable not only to a ministry or missionary’s social media, but also to all other fundraising medium’s including one that is vital to a missionary’s correspondence with his/her supporters: the newsletter.”
Our 2013 speaker Mack Collier brought in 2015 speaker Kerry O’Shea Gorgone for an interview on his podcast, discussing legal issues in social media.
“Twitter Recap of #YallConnect 2015,” Birmingham Shines
Podcaster Sheree Martin curated conference tweets into this terrific Storify post.
Kerry brought Mack onto her podcast to talk about what makes for a great conference, and how they can improve.
Williesha Morris picked up “awesome brain nuggets” from speakers David Griner and Laura Creekmore and shared them in a detailed post.
“Content strategist Laura Creekmore challenged us to calculate things like:
- How much time it takes to come up with an idea
- How much time to create one aspect of the project
- How many other people are involved?
- How often should the content be reviewed?”
Candie Price devoted a second in-depth post to our event on her company blog, this time looking at sessions from Stacey Ferguson, David Wilson, Ike Pigott, Kary Delaria and David Griner. She includes lessons from each session.
“Keep your ears to the ground next year — you DON’T want to miss this content-rich conference and your chance to BLOW UP in your career and/or business!”
“Incorporating more social in communications strategy,” Alabama NewsCenter
Alabama Power’s Alexis Robinson examined Ike Pigott’s talk on social media in crisis communication. Plus, the story includes an excellent video of the conference.
“Pigott noted the importance of listening to one’s audience and following the best platform for content.”
