By Jamie Newton | @jnewton09 | Senior Communications Manager at Hanapin Marketing

SelfiesHeroConf 2014 has finally come to a close and boy was it a BLAST! From the networking with fellow awesome PPC heroes to the tasty treats for snack break and morning sessions (there was a Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar…no, I’m not kidding) to the off-the-chart sessions and keynotes that literally brought down the house (John Gagnon aka “Clark Kent of PPC” from Bing dropped some huge announcements), this year’s conference was amazing in every way.

BingBarTakeoverI could literally go on and on about how cool it was and how Bing threw the party of the year and how good the food was and how the swag rocked and how PPC folks are the BEST. PEOPLE. IN. THE. WORLD. but you might not believe me if I keep bragging, so I’ll stop and throw some things your way I know you’ll soak in – like metrics and testimonials.

PPC folks also happen to be the best tweeters. Over the course of the conference, a total of 4,725 tweets with #HeroConf were sent, with almost 800 contributors, and over 14 million people exposed to #HeroConf. That’s a lot of tweeting!
