While at the SXSW 2012 Interactive Trade Show, we had a chance to tour the floor and meet with some of the companies on display.

They offered a wide range of marketing solutions and gave us a few seconds of their time to give us their elevator pitch explaining just what they do.

Some of our favorites included:
