Last Call For SMX Advanced Speaking Pitches!
Interested in speaking at our SMX Advanced search marketing conference in Seattle this June 2 & 3? Our speaking pitch form closes at the end of next Monday, April 20. So get your pitches in! Below, some more information on pitching and the twice sold-out show in general.
When you use the pitch form, not every session is listed. Those that aren’t have already been filled with speakers. They’re all set — so please don’t use the form to pitch for an open session and say you meant it for one that wasn’t listed.
When pitching, be detailed. The more you can say about exactly what you plan to cover, the better. Remember, this is an event for advanced search marketers — so put forward your very best and fresh ideas.
I’ve checked with the various session coordinators, and here are a few special notes about particular sessions that you may wish to consider.
- Amazing PPC Tactics is still looking for some good “wow” presentations. Got out of-the-box paid search tactics you want to share? That’s what we’re after.
- Beyond The Usual Link Building still has space for one or two people who can really go past the usual tips people already know. Be specific, to be considered strongly.
- Twitter Tactics & Search Marketing is especially looking for an in-house brand person who wants to speak.
After the pitch form closes, we expect to notify everyone if they’ve been accepted or not by April 28. If we have further openings after that date, the form will reopen and notice given on the SMX Blog.
As a reminder, SMX is the only search conference series that guarantees its quality. And a bigger reminder, last year’s show sold out of tickets three weeks ahead of the event. This year, ticket sales are going even faster. Seriously. No bull, no sales hype — just exactly the same thing that I said last year, book early. Otherwise, you might not be able to get one.
