Small Business Marketing Unleashed: Columbus, OH


Today, I wanted to give all of you a heads up about a fantabulous event I'll be attending in Columbus, Ohio this September (the 22nd and 23rd to be exact) that's focused on small business owners and how they can make the most of their online marketing efforts.

It can be overwhelming to digest all the STUFF that's out there about online marketing, so Jennifer Laycock and the folks at Search Engine Guide have put together this tight knit forum with speakers breaking down the elements of search engine marketing, viral marketing, blogging and local search.

So what can you expect? The conference is limited to 100 attendees, and the workshops are limited to 25 people each to maximize opportunities to ask questions, interact, and learn. And it's not about just piling on the theory; these workshops are designed to give you real, usable ideas that you can take back to your company and put in play right away.

Some of the super duper speakers on the agenda:

Jennifer Laycock
, Editor-In-Chief of Search Engine Guide
Matt Bailey, Founder and President of Site Logic Marketing
Matt McGee, Owner of SmallBusinessSEM.com
Debra Mastaler, Owner of AllianceLink
Stoney deGeyter, President of Pole Position Marketing
Heather Lloyd Martin, President and CEO of SuccessWorks Search Marketing Solutions
Mack Collier, Owner of The Viral Garden
Christine Churchill, President of KeyRelevance
Sage Lewis, Founder of SageRock
Christina "CK" Kerley, Founder of ckEpiphany Marketing
Michael Stebbins, President of Market Motive

With such an intimate group, the networking opportunities are second to none. I know I'm looking forward to putting faces to so many of the names I've known from Twitter and Plurk and the slew of blogs I read. Why not come join us so we can meet in person, too?

The $750 admission is a steal for a great conference (register by 8/29 for the early birdy deal). Head to the SBMU website and complete your registration today so you don't miss out on the fun. Hope to see you there!!

Disclosure: Nope, I don't work for SBMU or SEG, I'm not a sponsor, I'm not a speaker. I just happen to think that Jennifer and her work is pretty darn brilliant and think you will, too.

Amber can't wait to meet you at SBMU! I spoke at the first one and two things struck me:

1 - All the speakers are excellent. Seriously. Wasn't a bum in the lot, and Matt Bailey is the best speaker I've ever seen.

2 - All the speakers were willing and even WANTED to interact as much as possible with the attendees. This helped create an amazing learning environment.

And that's really what it is, a great learning environment. The sessions are really classes, and everyone gets sent home with 'homework' so that they can immediately get to work on bettering their businesses. It really is a steal for the price.

Amber, that's an amazing post! Thank you so much; I can't wait to meet you in September. :)

Amber Naslund said...

@mack and @rachel looking forward to meeting you both very much. Thanks for stopping by!

Matt McGee said...

Neat post, Amber -- please make sure to introduce yourself in September, okay? Should be another great show. I loved the first one in April.
