Google Visited Chattanooga!

On June 25th, Google and Delegator co-hosted an AdWords Digital Breakfast at Church on Main in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As the first Google certified agency in Tennessee, Delegator is proud to be an official Google Partner, which gives us access to Google resources and events like this one. google breakfast whole room

Local marketers attended the event to learn how mobile has changed the digital landscape, how remarketing can boost conversions, and how to get granular with tracking your return on ad spend.

This event was perfect for Chattanoogans with our burgeoning startup scene. We are hopeful that this event is a catalyst for local businesses to get in on the cutting edge of Google advertising, and we are hoping to invite Google back again next year!

Irony, Man.

Source: By now, you’ve heard about the ‘controversy’ surrounding Iron Man 3’s dubious depiction of Chattanooga, TN as a backwoods hick town with internet so deplorable the world might end.  For any of you actually living in Chattanooga, this is comical (Iron Man is a comic book, afterall), as ‘The Gig City’ is a beautiful, populous town, with a cutting edge broadband infrastructure rivaled by few in the world.   

The chuckles might nervously trail when one considers that that Verizon FiOS, boasting "Internet speeds that will rock the competition", is one of the main promotional sponsors of Iron Man 3.

Surely it's a coincidence that all the other small towns in Iron Man 3 are fictional except Chattanooga, whose sole plot line contribution is 'slow internet', right?

Surely there isn't some Verizon guy in a suit who thought it would be clever to rip Chattanooga for slow internet, just because he can, right?

If so.... not sure he thought it through, as the publicity has been priceless, and the content flowing fast -- roughly a gig a second.

We love irony, man!
