Well folks, springtime is just around the corner (except, perhaps here in Duluth…) and what better way to celebrate than with an über-busy schedule chock-full of industry conferences? Search me!

No. Literally. Let’s take a peek at our aimClear agenda for the months of March and April, shall we?

Search Engine Strategies – SES NY, March 22-26, 2010
At the end of March, Marty, Manny, Merry and Lauren (a quorum!) will head to New York to attend Search Engine Strategies hosted by Incisive Interactive Marketing.  Marty speaks on the Advanced Keyword Research session on the final day of the conference along with Christine Churchill, Marcus Tandler, and Yigal Elnekave.

140 Character Conference – 140conf NY, April 20-21, 2010
In April, Lauren (yup, that’s me) returns to her NYC stomping grounds to speak at the 140 Character Conference, a relatively young Twitter-focused event hosted by Technology Anthropologist and Entrepreneur Jeff Pulver.

The “140conf” focuses on very short, intense presentations and panels (5-15 minutes long) so when she isn’t contributing to the “Growing Up with the Real Time Internet” panel (or rubbing elbows with Ann Curry, Gary Vaynerchuk, Ivanka Trump, C.C. Chapman, Matt Pinfield, MC Hammer, and Michael Ian Black to name a handful of her fellow speakers), she’ll be tweeting highlights from the conference and posting full write-ups and reflections when she gets back to the aimClear office.

Search Marketing Expo – SMX Sydney, April 22-23, 2010
We’re all excited that Marty is going down unda’ to speak at SMX Sydney to speak  about Facebook Paid Marketing. SMX Sydney is considered by many to be “Australia’s #1 Search Marketing Event is the ‘must-attend’ Search Engine Marketing and Social Media event of the year”  There will be more than a dozen speakers from the US & Canada, the biggest contingent yet. Watch for special announcements. This edition also represents the first time ever the SMX Sydney organizers have hacked out all of the Basic sessions, leaving room enough for three dozen new Intermediate to Advanced level training sessions.

We hope to see you at one, if not all of these events :) And if you can’t make it, be sure to check back in  aimClear blog for conference coverage,
