Honored To Keynote SES London
This year I’ll have the pleasure of keynoting Day Three. That’s Thursday, 21 February at 9:15AM.  The subject of my presentation will be “Optimising Humans! The Art of Data-Driven Social Marketing.”  I’ll talk about methods to expand your social media strategy whilst focusing straight away on immediately actionable paid and organic social tactics. We’ll have a good chat about developing audiences with psychographic research followed by data-driven organic community outreach and paid-organic amplification.

  • Learn techniques you can actually use every day for mapping search to social. Discover how to identify socially plugged-in authority users along classic lines of search conversion semantics history.
  • Explore organic and paid social mashup tactics to leverage the data.
  • Open your mind about how retargeting and third party audience modeling matters to community managers and content marketing.
  • Investigate data-driven friending tactics: Cool perspective shifts regarding how community managers (and everyday people) can undertake programmatic outreach to connect with personal & business authority users and collect them as friends for fun and profit.
  • Probe killer social media paid tactics to target the “whole user” in social channels.
  • Open your mind about how retargeting and third party audience modeling matters to community managers and content marketing.
  • Consider new KPIs for measuring social media efforts, including “friend leads” and conversion
  • Anything I feel like talking about :)

Much of the keynote content will be culled from my new Wiley/Sybex book, “The Complete Social Media Community Manager’s Guide.” Cowritten with long time aimClearian Lauren Litwinka, our latest effort was released just last week. It follows my 2011 book “Killer Facebook Ads.”  The Facebook UI has changed but the KPI theory, targeting grid and creative principles put forward in KFB are timeless.

Eric Enge, President, Stone Temple Consulting @stonetemple
Eric is a great marketer, especially strong at understanding how the link universe works.  Personable and sharp, his sessions are always solid.

Dax Hamman, Chief Revenue Officer, Chango @daxhamman
Dax is a new friend and was into retargeting before most people had even heard about it.  He’s got brilliant perspective on what roles will be played by what sectors of the industry. If you’re worried about remaining relevant, see Dax’s sessions.

Simon Heseltine, Director of SEO, AOL Inc. @simonheseltine
Simon has also been on the circuit for years. I think I met him in 2006.  He’s always as current as current can be and a damn nice fellow. See him speak. Chat with him over coffee.

Krista Neher & Author

Lee Odden, Author: SES Advisory Board; CEO, TopRank Online Marketing @leeodden: Don’t miss Lee Odden’s sessions, especially as surrounding content, blogging, promotion and SEO.   He’s a foundational SEO blogger and extremely approachable. I admit that many years ago, he was the first person I ever heard say the world, “WordPress.”

Bas van den Beld, Marketing/Search Strategist, Founder, Stateofsearch @basvandenbeld: Bas is a hot, hot, hot speaker. Repeated winner of the International Search Summit Medallion, he delights audiences around the world with his perspectives.  He calls it like it is in understandable terms.

London Guard

David Naylor, SEO, Bronco @davenaylor: Naylor is another original SEO blogger. His tone is concise, a percentage snarky and spot-on. He’s never been afraid to mingle tactics and editorial.  I see him speak whenever I can and leave with something to think about I did not consider before.

    Congratulations on your new book Marty – I hope the Kindle edition will be published soon.

    And safe travels to the UK. We’re only a short flight away here in Ireland so do let me know if you plan to be here on you European tour!

    • Marty Weintraub

      Krishna, thank you so much for the kind offer. Will you be in London for #SESLON?

  • Krishna De

    I am afraid I will not be at the conference. I am sure your session will be terrific.

  • Mark Churchill

    No dicredit to the presenters I *did* see, but I wish I’d read your input beforehand! Managed to miss around half of the above.

    I did however catch Krista Neher. What a fantastically clear speaker. She hit the social nail on the head on Tuesday (before you *sledgehammered* it Thursday am – what a gleeful sesh that was).

    Poor Bill Hunt had to try and WAKE UP the crowd on Tuesday afternoon (post lunch and after everyone’s early morning travel to London…prime time for a snooze strike). This is despite that he had an entirely non-soporific deck and tips of sheer gold dust. Sorry Bill – it wasn’t you, it was us!
