Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - On April 5th, 2016 Bahamians from Grand Bahama, New Providence, Abaco and Andros, hungry for tips on how to Maximize Profits through Social Media,  came in large numbers and packed the Royal Palm Room at Grand Lucayan to hear keynote speaker Ron Douglas talk on Marketing Funnels; LinkedIn Strategist Gary Kissel explain profile optimization for success, Facebook Expert John Cornetta explain Facebook advertising and how to approach it; Instagram specialist Jocelyn Jones talk on Why Instagram for business; Mass Video Distribution Expert Bonnie Bruderer explain how to get your video in front of millions and millions of viewers; Webinar expert Rich Wilens talk on the ins and outs of Webinars for profit and to learn the techy side of video production in simplified form for web along with simple applications for the utilization of videos to promote their business with pocket devices. Angelika Christie provided inspirational insight on how to prepare ones mind and body for success.

Co chairs Mitch Carson and David Mackey expressed their gratitude for the enthusiasm of Bahamians attending the Summit to learn ways on how to improve the bottom line of their businesses. They were also greatly encouraged by the the level of engagement at the Q&A session, stating that it exemplifies the desire of Bahamians to learn more about Social Media for business.

Mr. Mackey explains some of the challenges faced at the outset, "As we were planning Bahamas Social Media Summit, naysayers exclaimed that 'Bahamians wouldn't get it', 'You're to early with this', It's too expensive...' A look at these photos reveals a different story; a highly attentive and responsive crowd of Bahamians who at no point during our long day dozed off or disrupted the proceedings by talking amongst themselves or were there any cell phone ringing...you could hear a pin drop. And at the end of it all we were eagerly asked, when is the next one?"

Bahamas Social Media Summit co-chair Mitch Carson dubs the Summit an overwhelming success and went on to say,  "Dave Mackey and I have already committed to planning the second of our series on Maximizing Profits through Social Media to happen later this year, perhaps in October. However, Nassau has expressed such a large degree of interest that we will take the Summit there as well."

Carson and Mackey outlined some of the benefits that attendees of the first summit will receive;
  • Password protected access to the videos and slides of all the presenters
  • A Bahamas Social Media Summit Card that ensures discounted access to all subsequent Summits in the series that will work at all locations in The Bahamas. This card will also provide added product purchase discounts.

Mackey and Carson expressed their gratitude to the Grand Bahama Port Authority;  BTC; and Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Grand Bahama who came on board as sponsors in the belief that knowledge is indeed power. Because of the overwhelming chorus of support, the second event of the series is tentatively planned for October 2016.
