A big thank you to +1859 Oregon's Magazine for including #SearchFest in their current bucket list!
 
What's on your Oregon Bucket List? ‪#SearchFest?+1859 Oregon's Magazine suggests it should be. In the July/August issue of 1859 you'll find SearchFest listed as one of the awesome Oregon things you should do, right between visiting the Nines hotel and hiking the Timberline Trail. Even Rooftop Networking Party gets a mention -- so join us on the roof and get ready to purchase your ticket to SearchFest 2016 -- tickets go on sale Aug. 11 during our Rooftop event. Also, make sure to pick up a copy of 1859 and check out the rest of the cool bucket list.

7 social media dos and don'ts for business. My fave is "Don’t tell a customer to call or email you, if that is needed be proactive and call or email them."
