This year, BrightonSEO will be like no other. Not only are we sponsoring the event, but this year we will also be speaking, something we’re truly excited about. Our very own Digital Marketing Director, Sam Noble will take to the stage and discuss how to effectively launch or re-launch brands or products online. So be sure to give her a warm welcome!
This year the event will take place on April 13th at the Brighton Dome, and is set to be the biggest one so far. Tickets sold out in a record 13 minutes!
With consumers now more connected through location-based, social and mobile environments, Google held ThinkLocal 2011. A mini conference aimed at reviewing local search and mobile search and how businesses need to control and promote their brands to consumers at the moment they are searching.
This event showcased insights, inspiration and ideas on how to more closely connect businesses with their customers.
On the 22nd September 2011, I made my first appearance on a stage at OMN London alongside Mike Essex where we presented our tactics for dominating page one of the search results for a brand. If you had asked me six months ago whether I would have done something like this, the answer would have been a definite NO! However, I overcame my fears and stood up in front of approximately 300 people with an interest in digital marketing and presented to them.
From speaking to people in the industry over the past three years, public speaking is a fear of many people and I wanted to put together this post to share some of my thoughts and tell you how I went about combating that fear in 15 steps.
At Think Visibility 6 I gave my first conference presentation, covering the topic of Making Money with Multi Channel Funnels, the new functionality in Google Analytics. So this should be beneficial to anyone who wants to know more about Multi Channels Funnels.
I’ve included the slides and everything I spoke about as well as everything I forgot to mention. I’m going to argue that I was sticking to the five minutes I was given, but I’d forgotten that rules can be ignored when Dom sets them!
If day one of the CS Forum provided me with a deeper understanding of content strategy and useful takeaways [See: The Content Strategy Forum - Day One] then day two gave me so much more. I was able to discover content strategy tips from the very best people practising this discipline.
From easy to use success metrics to analysing your content using analytics and from strategies for the social web to effective video content, I listened to compelling talks, something that should be shared to the wider community. One of the key takeaways from the Forum, as advocated by Melissa Rach is that our competitive advantage comes when we share…so share I will…
For those that didn’t over do it on the Kooztails, the Think Visibility presentations started in earnest at 10am following a great intro from Dom Hodgson (“Koozai! Say it with me…’Koozai’…’Koozai’…’Koozai’…”).
There were brilliant swag bags featuring Think Vis Lego mini figures, pick n mix, and a cardboard Dom of course! Read more
In our second giveaway of the month it’s time to announce our winners for the Think Visibility ticket competition. We had three tickets to give away to this Leeds based event to celebrate our platinum sponsorship.
It promises to be a fantastic day of talks, so congratulations to our winners who are….
After the closing sessions on day 1, I was looking forward to getting stuck back in to day 2 of the SMX London conference. The first session of the day was something that I really enjoy and find interesting which is Search Analytics and Competitive Intelligence. The take here was that there are so many tools and so much data available to us but this can very often be overwhelming and unusable.
Well, I have had a great couple of days at Advanced SMX London. I watched some insightful and some not so insightful presentations and met some brilliant like-minded people who I am looking forward to catching up with again at future conferences.
Anyway, moving onto some of the takeaways from each of the presentations…. Advanced SMX is a panel led conference with typically 3-4 speakers on each panel. I tried to make notes for each one but apologies if I have missed some as it’s not always easy to take everything down and take key bits in at the same time.
March 2011 saw the gathering of SEO professionals both black hat and white hat to experience the Distilled link building seminar in London. Read more
