In just a few days, Irma and I will be heading to San Jose for this years Search Engine Strategies conference. It is the last conference that Danny Sullivan will be chairing. Actually he is co-chairing with Chris Sherman. I am fortunate enough to be presenting for the first time in a session entitled “So You Want To be a Search Marketer?” which is scheduled for Wednesday, August 22nd at 1:30pm. Thanks, Chris! While I have sat in sessions as a Q&A participant twice and held a site clinic one other time, I have never done a formal presentation at an SES. I am excited and a bit nervous at the same time.
WebmasterWorld who produces the PubCon conferences and SEO Class, a newly formed organization providing intimate training experiences in search marketing, are partnering together to produce PubCon SEO Class, coined as a premium Internet marketing training program. These two-day programs will be limited to less than 50 participants and focus on midrange to advanced SEM/SEO curriculum. The inaugural two-day SEO Class by PubCon is scheduled for New York on July 30th & 31st. The cost to attend is $2,999, however if you pre-register before June 30th, you can save $1,000 off the normal price.
What started with a three hour flight delay and three gate changes at the airport turned out to be another great SES, this time in New York City. While Irma and I were supposed to arrive in New York from Phoenix at about 4:30 pm, we actually did not get to our hotel till a little after 8 pm.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in Chicago attending the winter Search Engine Strategies conference and now, New York. My wife and business partner, Irma, and myself will be heading to New York on Monday for this year’s SES – my first time to the big city and her second. That’s the reason why I haven’t put up a single blog post until now – been busy trying to wrap up two weeks worth of work.
Just received an email from David Temple who along with Ian McAnerin have been planning the upcoming China Search Marketing Tour that will take place during Search Engine Strategies in China conference. While the conference only runs two days (May 25th-26th) the tour runs from May 19th thru the 28th – 10 glorious days in China. The reason for David’s email was to announce that they are offering an early bird discount of $500 until March 5, at 5pm EST.
