Jan. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- New business people are entering the $43 + billion dollar plus pet industry every day. They, as well as established industry professionals, must understand new networking trends and technological tools that can help their companies succeed.
In a presentation entitled “Strategic View of Internet Technologies -- What Makes Bottom Line Sense -- from Web Site to Social Networking,” pet industry expert and Guerrilla Marketing Coach Vicki Lynne Morgan will share advice and experiences regarding internet technologies and social networking at the Pet Industry Transformation Conference, February 11-12, 2010, at The Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The conference, aimed at pet industry insiders and mainstream new market entrants, will feature Morgan and 18 other hands-on pet industry practitioners, who will share case studies, strategic action plans, and guidance revolving around eight key industry growth trends.

Morgan states, “I’ve enjoyed success as a manufacturer’s representative, speaker, and entrepreneur in the pet, sales, and marketing industries for more than 30 years. The pet industry is lucrative and growing quickly. Many business people find newer electronic marketing tools, such as podcasts, webinars, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, overwhelming at first -- but they can be incredibly powerful and simply can’t be ignored.”

According to Morgan, “Profitability in today’s crowded marketplace demands a ‘full-circle’ linking of technology that surrounds the target market. My presentation at February’s Pet Industry Transformation Conference will describe this approach in detail.”
