We’re baaaaaack!

It has taken us a couple of days to get back into the swing of things after pulling five 13+ hour days, but we are pumped about all the relationships we made and strengthened at the IFA Annual Convention in Orlando.

Our booth was awesome, if I do say so myself.   It represented 919 Marketing well:  it was hip, focused on results, and fun!  Plus, we gave out beer and popcorn (it went along with the baseball theme), so we were “insta popular” with the attendees and exhibitors!  (Yes, I just made up that word.)

Our booth at IFA 2012. Put me in, coach!

First off, the most exciting thing for me was meeting Shaq. I am literally half his height. And he was very nice, actually.

One of the highlights - meeting Shaq!











Joking aside, it was a great conversation starter.

I am especially excited about 919 Marketing’s involvement in the franchising industry, and the work we are doing for our franchise clients. Being there made it even more apparent that we are a great agency, a great team and are truly good at what we do.

Most interesting for me was all the big announcement from Facebook about the “Parent/Child Relationship” for franchisor/franchisee pages.  Get more info on the IFA website.  This is a step in the right direction, but it still doesn’t address some of the issues franchisors face.  More to come on that topic …

We are excited about 2012, and are busy planning some projects that will benefit you and other franchisors. Stay tuned for more news on that! Until then, enjoy some more pictures from the show!
