Bethaney and I are on a plane right now, waiting to head back home to Kansas after being in Austin, Texas for South by Southwest Interactive this week.

To say that SXSWi was information overload would almost be an understatement. There are was so many people to meet, sessions to take in, and things to do that every day seemed overwhelming. That being said, we still had a blast.

What we learned at SXSWi is definitely going to help us become better internet marketers. Here are some key points I learned from some of the sessions.

swswi2012Bethaney and I will be joining the rest of the other tech nerds next week for South by Southwest Interactive, a conference that boasts these impressive stats:

Interactive Conference Participants: 19,364
Interactive Conference Sessions: 935
Approximate Number of Interactive Media in Attendance: 2,508

Yep. Pretty big deal. I’m hoping to meet Rainn Wilson and perhaps make eye contact with Seth McFarlane, wish me luck.

However, all fun aside, there are several amazing sessions led by experts in our industry that we can’t wait to learn a ton from. I will be live tweeting as much as my batteries allow from @wonderwall7 and @thesocialrobot.

Bethaney and I will be attending separate sessions so we can get the most out of the experience...
