SotonDigital Event Summary

27th May 2011 News, Events, News, Industry News 1 minute to read

Last night was the first ever SotonDigital event, which was arranged by Dan Harrison from WordPress Doctors. There has been talk about arranging a local get together for a while now and Dan pulled this together and arranged a really good night.

There was a great turnout of 48 people from different agencies both web and search around the Southampton area which was held in Yuzu in Bedford Place. Dan had arranged for the top floor of the bar to be reserved for the event and it was really nice to see so many people make an effort to attend.

This is the only industry that I have worked in where people from other agencies get together, share ideas and talk about new initiatives that are on the horizon. It is such a friendly industry and it is great to be a part of that. There were nine of us from the Koozai team and we all met great new faces from some of the other local agencies including Vertical Leap, Intelligent Retail, Plug and Play® , Atelier SEO and Ping Sweetie. It was also good to see people there for local businesses looking to learn a little more about the digital marketing industry.

The next event is planned for October and this time round it is going to be more of a mini conference. Dan Harrison will be sending out feedback questionnaires to all attendees from last night to get their thoughts on how the next event should take place so when you receive the email, please take the time to fill it in as all suggestions and feedback will be welcomed.

All in all, it was a great evening and we are all looking forward to the next SotonDigital and hope to see a lot more faces for the event. Big thanks to Dan for arranging it, brilliant idea which should turn out to be a regular get together for all the local search marketers.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.

    The Psychology Of Colour In Marketing

    When it comes to building a content marketing campaign, it can be difficult to know where to start. You may have an initial idea but bringing it to life and getting your message seen are always harder than initially thought.
