Why We Loved DOYO Live 2016

DOYO Live was the first digital marketing and interactive design conference in Youngstown, OH. We were speakers in the breakout session, Facebook Marketing Strategy to Grow Your Business.

Here are some of the reasons we loved DOYO:

Networking: Not only did we get to meet and mingle with other marketing companies, we also got to meet other local business owners and entrepreneurs. Not to mention college students, marketing professionals and all of the amazing volunteers that made that day possible.

Lead Generation: During our breakout session and our one-on-one workshops, we were able to meet potential clients and take advantage of face to face interaction. 

Future Partnerships: We met other businesses that look to outsource social media management with companies like ours. We were able to form alliances with businesses we could outsource to as well.

Youngstown Strong: We love the fact that Dennis Schiraldi chose Youngstown as the place to put this conference. There are so many great strides in our downtown revitalization, and DOYO Live will become an integral part of that success. Being an hour from Pittsburgh and Cleveland makes Youngstown the best choice!

Positive Press: We all know that Youngstown gets a bad rap and there are plenty of nay sayers. There was press around throughout the day and not a negative word or image associated with that day.


Sense of Community: DOYO Live is another example of the power of positive people coming together to support one another and our community.

Amazing Energy: From the moment we arrived at 6:45am, we could feel an amazing energy and spark in Williamson Hall. From the speakers to the attendees to the volunteers, there was a positive vibe emitted from everyone. 

Breakout Sessions: Each session had top notch presentation technology made available to the speakers to facilitate a flawless presentation.

Boosting Local Business: out of towners stayed in local hotels; restaurants as well as shopping centers were busier with the influx of people.

After Party: Perfect opportunity to unwind after a long day of sessions and speakers, and hang out with like-minded professionals.
