Happy Leap Day!
I am currently typing from the speaker lounge at SMX West, we’re half way through the conference and it’s as fabulous as usual! If you’re here, come say hi, I’m on the PPC Mechanics panel tomorrow.
Check out my latest column on Search Engine Land, Optimizing Search Engine Marketing for Seasonal Opportunities. Take advantage people!
Also available on the interwebs are two(!) new SEMcasts. Enjoy Google+ AdWords Social Extensions & Time Management Tactics and/or Video Marketing Ideas.
Want to attend a hip search engine marketing conference, but have trouble convincing the powers that be that its worth the money? Check out my latest article, Justifying Conference Attendance For In-House Search Marketers on Search Engine Land. It will give you ammunition, they can’t say no!
And speaking of conferences, I will be at SMX West later this month, doling out free advice on the SMX Mechanics panel as well as moderating a lunch table on Mobile Marketing. Come by and say hi!
I thought it would be nice to have a rundown on 2011 from a search marketer perspective, hence a new article from me on the top 5 In-House Search Marketing Game Changers In 2011 on Search Engine Land.
For those who prefer my melodious voice, you can listen to this and other search marketing thoughts in SEMcast #21 (or subscribe to Geekcast.fm in iTunes).
And, upcoming speaking dates are also at hand, I”ll be on the PPC Mechanics panel again at SMX West, please stop by and get some free SEM advice, or just say hey.
Happy New Year, y’all!
An article from me on Search Engine Land, Google+ AdWords Social Extensions. Check it out if you want to learn more on getting in early on the Google+ possibilities for marketers.
Soon I will be on vacation, whiling away my time on a scuba boat in the Great Barrier Reef, but after that I will be at Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas in January. Come by and say hi!
In case you don’t hear from me again this year, a very Happy Holiday to you and yours!
An article from me on Search Engine Land, Annual Budgeting Guide For The In-House Marketer, which offers some handy advice on how to really rock the annual budgeting process. If budgeting and forecasting search engine marketing is something you dread, this will hopefully make you see it more as a crisistunity, or at least something you can now power through more efficiently.
Also, if you plan to be at the PhoCusWright conference in Florida next week, I too will be gracing it with my presence. Drop me a line, I’d love to say hey. Do not under any circumstances ask me about my last trip to Florida, a state I vowed never to return to (damn you PhoCusWright!).
An article from me (that I think I forgot to mention) on Search Engine Land, +1 For The In-House Search Engine Marketer, which offers some speculation about the role of +1 on paid search campaigns, but also I think a healthy dose of practical things to do to have +1 improve your campaigns.
For those who enjoy my dulcet vocals, these notions and more are available in podcast form in a new SEMcast #19 along with some notes on new AdWords Editor features.
Holla, its my birthday today! Oh the glamour of 34. Now onto more pressing news.
New article out from me on Search Engine Land: 5 Handy New AdWords Editor Features. I’m mostly loving it, but one thing is annoying the crap out of me. Read it to find out what!
I know I am way behind on SEMcasts, but I am in London next week (work) and Scotland the week after (not work!), so when I get back, pinkie swears one will be produced for your listening pleasure.
New post on Search Engine Land from me, all about how to hire a great in-house search engine marketer, or if an agency might be a better fit. Enjoy.
Sitting right now at ShareASale’s ThinkTank (as I type!), if you see me, say hi.
