Thousands of representatives from electronic and traditional media outlets descend on Austin every spring to report on all the creativity, innovation and inspiration that happens at the SXSW Interactive Festival. Other content about the event is published via personal and company blog posts.
“SXSW was the largest promotional expense we've ever undertaken — roughly 80% of last year’s advertising spend. We're still recovering from the sticker shock but unanimously agree that it was worth the expense. We came back with loads of ideas to improve Nutshell. The stories and frustrations we heard inspired us. We learned more about what the world wants from CRM software in four days than we could have over three years inside the office. Of course, incoming leads ticked up and we've already seen some direct sales from the show, but that's not the true ROI. We pitched our product, met journalists, decision-makers, competitors, partners, and customers, and left the conference having all had a lot of fun.”
