For those of you who are not familiar with Tragic, we will start with a little background to help illuminate why taking the leap to invest in our own inbound marketing was such a big one for our small organization.
Last Friday, May 6th, Tragic Media exhibited at Interactive Day: the West Coast's premier digital marketing and technology event. With over 1,000 attendees, Tragic Media had the opportunity to meet with some of San Diego’s top players, ranging from local marketing professionals to advertising agencies to upcoming start-ups. The conference offered tons of great insights to the tech industry trends with speaking sessions by Moz's Ronell Smith & Qualcomm's Dan Novak.
