New York, New York! Man, we just love that city. The sights, the sounds, the smells… yes, we can’t seem to stay away from the Big Apple for too long. Every six months or so we get a serious itchin’ for some Chinatown dim sum, Katz’s Deli knishes, midtown food-truck Halal, and, oddly enough, online marketing brain-chow. We ate our fill in March for SES NY. Luckily, next month marks the east coast edition Search Marketing Expo, aptly named #SMX East, where we’ll stock up on the goods once more.
The aimClear team is set to return to New York on September 12, represented this go-round by Marty Weintraub, Manny Rivas, Merry Morud and me, Lauren Litwinka. We’ll kick off the week with our Facebook Marketing Intensive Workshop, and then dive into the conference head first. Manny and Marty will both storm the stage speaking, and Lauren live-tweeting and blogging like a madwoman.
Marty will be speaking on the Facebook Ads, Meet Search Ads and Beyond Rankings: Actionable SEO Reports Your Boss Will Love sessions (Day 2 @ 5:oo pm EST & Day 3 @ 12:45pm EST respectively), while Manny tackles Video Search Success Stories (Day 3 @ 9:00-10:15am EST). Read on for a closer look at these sessions, Lauren’s coverage schedule as well as the lo-down on our Facebook Marketing Intensive Workshop.
We’re ready to rock attendees for a full day with our training workshop on all-things Facebook. From community management to reputation monitoring, end-to-end FB Ads campaigns and organic friending strategies, you’ll walk away with a deep know-how on tools, tactics & techniques for driving serious, highly-targeting traffic from this colossal social network. Sound like your cuppa tea? Check out full session descriptions, or register today to ensure your seat at the table.
