Blogger Socialites: Bailey, Barrett, Beck, Bellamkonda

In the lead-up to this year’s Blogger Social (April 4-6, NYC), I’m attempting to gather brief “snapshots” of all the 75-odd registered bloggers. Last time, we looked at the “A” list. Let’s take a look at some of the “B” friends we’ll befriend.

Matt is the main man over at SiteLogic Marketing blog. Here is the official summary of the company: SiteLogic was founded by Matt Bailey, who has been in the search marketing industry since 1996. As early as then, he was evaluating websites based on brand protection and ROI. Matt started speaking in the late 1990’s at Bed and Breakfast seminars, teaching website marketing and search engine optimization.

Matt’s blog is coming up on its 2nd anniversary. He covers a lot of topics touching on web marketing, including optimization, design, and trends. The posts are meaty and practical, and the tone is professional. Good use of white space. I love this post about Analytics according to Captain Kirk.

This link has some good background bio on Matt. If you’re looking for site optimization services, he’s your guy!

First thing to understand is that Ryan is a female, not a male (I have one son named Ryan, and how easy it is to make assumptions!). Ryan is a copywriter at a Boston ad agency, and her blog, Cheap Thrills, is her personal site. The posts are wide-ranging – politics, social media, personal, Boston stuff, you name it! Love colorful design? – check out these eye-grabbing quilts!

It appears that Ryan is a Red Sox fan and that definitely scores extra points in my book!

Here are 8 random things about Ryan – will we find anyone at the Blogger Social who has longer fingers??

cam-beck-150.jpgCam Beck

I’ve been looking forward for many months to meeting Cam. We’ve corresponded via e-mail often, and I know I’m going to like this guy. Cam, along with 2 co-authors, runs the Chaos Scenario blog. If you’re feeling challenged by geek-speak and on-line acronyms, Cam just posted a great little piece on Net Lingo. The blog focuses on branding and marketing issues.

Cam works for Click Here, a geekreative group in Texas helping companies use technology in their branding. My suspicion is that Cam does not root for either the NY Giants or the NY Yankees, but we can confirm that at the Blogger Social!

Cam is a former Marine (or is it true that there are no former Marines?), a Boy Scout leader, and a contributer to Marketing Profs Daily Fix (sample). He sums up his business philosophy thusly:

  1. In order to deliver effective customer service, you must first become a servant to your customers.
  2. To become an effective servant to your customers, you must first admire and respect them.
  3. Respect for others requires you put their needs before your own.
  4. Every experience is a learning opportunity.

Cam’t get enough? Here’s a LinkedIn profile. Looking forward to some Lone Star fellowship come April!

shashi-profile.jpgShashi Bellamkonda

Shashi works for Network Solutions and has been blogging for several years. He lives and works in the DC area, and enjoys creating posts with pictures, videos, and interviews of various people in the tech and social media industry (including this little piece on Jennifer Berk, another of the registered attendees).

Shashi is an internet addict, and he describes his professional life thusly: Product Innovator – totally plugged in to technology consumer products strategy and marketing. Expertise in communities, using Social media tools, Optimizing the message to the new media. Responsible for the strategic planning, execution and management of the mobile web products, Website tools for small business, Search , Analytics and Internet Advertising. website traffic strategies and Social Media Optimization. 

LinkedIn? Of course! Twitter? Naturally. Shashi is going to be “talking tech” come Blogger Social!
