With the SearchLove conference already at the halfway stage, here’s my quick review of the first day; covering speeches from Rand Fishkin, Joost De Valk, Rob Ousbey, Wil Reynolds, Mat Clayton, Joanna Lord as well as Will and Tom Critchlow.
On Sunday 23rd October myself, Sam and Ben will be attending the speakers’ dinner for Searchlove, with the conference to follow on Monday and Tuesday. For those curious about the event, or who want a Searchlove preview, we’ve put together our thoughts on the topics and idea’s we’d like to see covered on the day.
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!
After a quick lunch break at the local Wagamama I was ready to absorb another session of SEO tips. The afternoon topics broke the mould by looking at several different aspects of SEO. This was immediately followed by a quick-fire round of ten minute presentations. Read more
You know that you’re getting up at a crazy hour of the day when you wake up and teletext is on most of the channels on your television, so as the alarm sounds at 5.30am, with no sign of the morning’s breakfast news, I slowly woke up and started getting ready to make the trip down to Brighton to meet fellow Koozai members for the Brighton SEO conference held at The Corn Exchange.
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…
This weekend I was lucky enough to attend the sixth ThinkVisibilty conference in Leeds. After making my way to the pre-party on Friday, sponsored by ourselves, I attended the conference on the Saturday and had a great time meeting new people in the industry and finding out a tonne of new things.
Find below some of what I took from the conference and a summary of the talks I attended. Find out more about this year’s event on on my college Tara’s blog post on the event.
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
