Today’s featured guest is Tia Kelly, the community manager for landing page optimization company, Unbounce. I am a big fan of their service, especially the ease of use and integration with my email marketing system. Tia and Unbounce were our first major brand here on the show, and you can tell in the production level. We worked out some questions and the agenda ahead of time (which is part of our process anyway), but the day of the show, Tia had one of her colleagues help out in the live event comments, which proved vital to the success of the live event, and made it easier for Ben and I as co-hosts to keep the discussion flowing.
