We are a custom suiting in Tuxedo uh, Taylor here in San Francisco, and you can find us on Twitter at artful G.

Awesome. I'm Alexis shown, and I am here with creativelive itself. Actually, I'm in the community marketing department and so I, uh, obviously can tell you that you can find us on Pinterest and Twitter at Creativelive, I would say the biggest Ah ha moment for me yesterday was that Pinterest is the fourth largest traffic driver on the Internet. Isn't that true, Melanie? Yes. And so I think that just finding ways that you can drive traffic to different parts of your site Different blog's different newsletters, anything that you can sign up for just straight from Pinterest. That was my biggest moment, where I'm like All right. Yes, we can do this for us. Um, I'm Rachel Ralston, and I, uh, own a design and branding company. Ah, you can find me at Rachel Ralston on Twitter and on Pinterest and re Charleston design on Facebook. Um, I my biggest take away from the day yesterday was that for me, connecting social media has been really challenging. And, um, and something has clicked for me, learning all the detail and how everything connects in a new way and hearing a new voice on that has really made it. I have ah, much deeper understanding for how everything works. So that's really awesome. My name is Denise on. I am the owner. Principal photographer and creative director of modern love photography, and we can be found at modern love. Photography dot com are on Facebook and modern love photography. Um, I had several ah ha moments yesterday. One of them was that Pinterest doesn't have to be this big, scary, disorganized monster that I currently have it being it. It's not gonna be that difficult to organize it and put it all together in a cohesive way that can broaden my audience. So that was awesome. And the other thing that was a really big ah ha moment for me was design elements with our images and how important it is to elevate your brand by using beautiful, clean, simple images to attract more people and being consistent with your voice and your brand so and thank you toe the presenters yesterday it was an awesome day.
