Although searching the Internet, watching YouTube videos and reading blogs is a great way to learn more about web marketing, there’s nothing like sitting down in a lecture hall and having people like Danny Sullivan or Marty Weintraub speak to you about the latest updates and information in the search marketing world.
Another thing that surfing the Internet for new information doesn’t provide for you: Networking opportunities. As great as Twitter and Facebook might be—they simply don’t offer you the chance to shake someone’s hand at a meet and greet, like these conferences do.
Here are just a few coming up that we think are worth your time and money!
October 1 – 3, 2013
The SMX conference series is lead by Danny Sullivan and Chris Sherman. Need we say more? They’re both editors and writers for Search Engine Land, and just really knowledgeable people when it comes to SEO, PPC, Social Media and all things web marketing.
October 14 – 15, 2013
This conference is right in our backyard, and we love it! Every year, they put on a great event—and as a sponsor. Some big names in the marketing world are coming this year, and Bend in October is pretty awesome. Join us!
Pubcon Las Vegas
October 21 – 25, 2013
Pubcon is the longest of the web marketing conferences on this list—a full four days of workshops, trainings and lectures in every aspect of online marketing. This conference has ten different tracks on the last three days, and even has Matt Cutts as a keynote!
Past October, there are still a lot of great web marketing conferences! Check out the History of SEO site for more events.
