Now in its sixth year, Zenith Digital Marketing Conference is back Thursday, April 27, in Duluth, Minn., with world-class speakers and fresh tracks for marketers of all levels.
What can you look forward to this year?
Start the day with Christi Olson, Microsoft’s search evangelist, for the morning keynote. Wrap it up with Michael King, managing director at iPullRank for the afternoon keynote.
Christi didn’t become an evangelist for an iconic company like Microsoft overnight. For more than a decade, she’s explored the nuances of search and digital marketing, emerging as a globally recognized and respected expert. She’s immersed herself in the channel and has seen it evolve from the inside out. Her knowledge is nothing short of prodigious. Her keynote is sure to follow suit.
Michael’s experience as an artist, technologist, speaker and independent hip hop musician only scrapes the surface of his dynamic talent. A regular keynote and speaker on the marketing world stage, Michael has his pulse on the future of digital. His keynote will leave marketers ready to take on anything!
Whether you’re new to the cutting-edge Zenith scene or a seasoned veteran, this year is sure to delight, inspire and challenge. Duluth favorites, including former Mayor Don Ness and Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson, are on deck to give a local marketing spin. Master marketing minds from around the globe will also touch down to give sessions an international flare.
Sessions this year are spread among three different tracks: Organic, Paid and Martech. Why’s that? We’re giving attendees the opportunity to create their own digital marketing adventure! Let’s break it down, track by track.
Track by track — in one day
Organic. This track is intended for marketers who are making the most of a thin budget. Learn tactics to position your organization for success — now and down the road. We’re talking SEO, PR, content, social media and influencer marketing. Organic marketing is the framework of your organization’s present and future marketing strategy.
Paid. Ready to pump up the jam? The paid track dives into paid search AND social. Learn digital marketing tactics to blow your boss’ mind, give your ROI a mega boost and provide insightful data for shaping your organization’s future. Top-notch speakers are ready to not only dish out the goods, but also answer the questions causing sleepless nights and stress headaches.
Martech. Calling all techies! New to the mix this year is the martech track, giving insight into why, what, when and where your organization can turn to tools to turn a digital profit. Learn from experts who’ve gone through round after round of trial and error — so you don’t have to.
All three sound good? Don’t fret — mix and match to create the optimal Zenith experience!
