aimClear’s #SMX West 2014 Conference Schedule: Speaking, Interviews & More!

Posted in aimClear, SMX West

SMX West is here and, per usual, aimClear isn’t just attending – we’re covering, speaking at and interviewing some of the finest online marketing minds in the world.   This is aimClear’s seventh SMX West in a row speaking and this conference is dear to our heart. Because West takes place in San Jose,  the very heart of Silicon Valley, speakers and sponsors (literally) make industry news from podiums and the exposition floor. Want to hang out with the aimClear team? This post has the information you need.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of conducting our classic pre-conference “aimClear Social Content Distribution for SEO: The New Link Building” workshop to an extremely advanced and appreciative audience. Starting today as the larger SMX West conference kicks off with vengeance, our team – led by aimClear Founder and Evangelist Marty Weintraub – will deliver information and insights from the conference, plus a few surprises.

aimClear Blog will be a hotspot for all things SMX. From booth 421, Marty and aimClear Online Advertising Director Manny Rivas will bring you interviews from industry leaders that you won’t see anywhere else. Check back during the week for exclusive videos with Akvile Harlow, Danny Sullivan and more. Trust us, you won’t want to miss some of the serious online marketing goodness our coverage promises to bring.

Last year, some of our favorite panels on deadeye keyword research and retargeting (without being creepy!) were a smashing success. aimClear is back this year with our own speaking appearances once again; you won’t want to miss them. Here’s a breakout of our participation over the next few days.

Wednesday, March 12: 2:45 – 3:30 PM PST
