Do This, See This, Buy This: Dreamforce

Do This See This Buy This is a feature about great products and services for marketers

San Franciscans always know when Dreamforce is coming. Streets start to close. Hotels and flights fill up. And there’s a buzz in the air beyond anything else the tech world brings to our little peninsula on the Pacific.

Dreamforce, salesforce, B2B marketingI’m excited to be at Dreamforce again after a 2-year hiatus. As Salesforce’s user conference and trade show, Dreamforce has turned into a massive combination of product demonstrations, user education, philanthropy, and parties. It’s now the world’s biggest software conference. Last year 135,000 people registered, 400 companies exhibited, and five million people watched online. There were 1,450 sessions and 20 music concerts.[1]

So you owe it to yourself to experience Dreamforce at least once, even if you don’t have a business interest in Salesforce or its constellation of partners. If nothing else, you’ll see the realized vision of one of today’s great B2B marketing geniuses, Marc Benioff.

Best of all, you can go to Dreamforce for free. Your free pass gets you into the expo hall and many of the keynotes.

So what are you waiting for? A better party? Get your pass and get to Dreamforce. I’ll see you there!

I found DGU this summer when looking for a way to get educated on digital marketing. I didn’t know much about terms like SEO, SEM, AdWords, or keywords – certainly not enough to be fully comfortable in the social and search-driven marketing world we have today.

9_10_15 DGUDGU was the answer. The site offers a suite of brief, easy-to-follow lessons teaching everything you need to know to get started with digital marketing.

The best part is the lessons really are brief – you won’t waste time with lots of material you aren’t going to use, and you will learn what you need to know. Each lesson is perfect for a lunch break and can be repeated as many times as you want.

I’m using what I learned to optimize this site,, and judging by the fast growth in traffic my DGU education is paying off handsomely!

I’m mastering digital marketing with, and I strongly recommend that you do too.
