       Speaker: Hamid Yazdanpanah

Hamid got his start in the retail grocery business in the mid-2000's, but found a love for video production and marketing on the side. Creating a role as the host of a local television show on Channel Austin, he turned that technical and public figure knowledge into a small local production company shooting TV commercials and music videos. In 2010 he transitioned out of Youtube and into media buying, producing music videos and TV/Radio commercials for local businesses. Once Hamid realized that television and radio commercials were losing attention, he began talking digital marketing around 2012. He is now a full-time independent marketing advisor and shares his experiences and extensive knowledge of digital media as a SCORE presenter and mentor.
