March will be an über-busy month for aimClear. In addition to exciting work with a growing cadre’ of well known client-brands, I’ll be speaking in Portland, OR at SearchFest and SearchEngineStrategies New York 2009, where we’ll cover with a 5 blogger crew!

SEMpdx SearchFest
SearchFest 09, a growing annual event, kicks off at the Oregon Zoo on March 10, 2009. This year’s full-day SEM conference event features a keynote by Danny Sullivan, Editor-In-Chief of SearchEngineLand and founder of Search Marketing Expo (SMX).

If you’re in the Pacific Northwest area, don’t miss this opportunity to take in these Internet marketing workshops and panel sessions, designed to provide cutting-edge insight to advances in online marketing. Last year’s event was a real burner!

Industry experts and thought leaders from around the country will deliver in-depth presentations, ranging from SEM fundamentals to advanced techniques. Watch for my presentation on reputation management.

In addition to Danny Sullivan, this year’s roster of speakers includes Rand Fishkin, SEOmoz, Vanessa Fox, Nine by Blue, Marshall Simmonds, New York Times, Neil Patel, ACS SEO, Riona MacNamara, Google, Laura Lippay, Yahoo, Matt McGee, Small Business SEM and Greg Hartnett, Best of the Web. Wow!

SearchEngineStrategies New York
SES New York is the grand daddy of them all and one of my total personal favorites. This year I’ll have the pleasure of speaking on the “Update on Social Media Optimization” panel. There are a handful of annual SEM conference events which are required-reading and this east coast extravaganza is certainly on the shortest of lists.

The speaker linup is stunning and features industry luminaries including Guy Kawasaki, Chris Boggs, Bryan Eisenberg, Liana Evans, Todd Friesen, Bill Hunt, Sara Holoubek, Debra Mastaler, Lee Odden, Kevin M. Ryan and many many others.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the global SES Conference and Exposition Series enlightens tens of thousands of attendees every year. SES New York will be jam-packed with 70+ sessions, several keynotes and trademark “Orion Strategy sessions.” There will be 150+ exhibitors, networking events, parties and more.

Matt, Manny, Nam & Peter from our Duluth, Minnesota office,  will join me in New York for conference coverage in aimClear Blog We hope to see you there!
