The City by the Bay, Frisco, and The Golden Gate city these are just a few names I looked up on Wikipedia. What a town, and what a conference. SES San Francisco was held at the wonderful Moscone Center. Security was tight, so you know you have to do what it takes to get by those guys that hold walkie-talkies and bright blazers. Why do they still have the handhelds that look like something out of The Goonies? Who knows, but beyond these sentries lays a vast carpeted floor full of treasures. In attendance were all the heavy hitters: Google, Yahoo, Bing and us (Wpromote).
The day started like most days, with breakfast. We were lucky enough to be staying right near the conference and the lovely Westin Hotel (no bed bugs allowed). We made our way to the conference center to start setting up for all of the of curious customers looking to learn a bit more on our quickly growing marketing of Search Engine Marketing. Throughout the day I was lucky enough to discuss our holistic approach and strategy for our campaigns with many fine folks. There were plenty of freebies, conversation and networking to be had by all. The first day kicked off with plenty of each. This day was pretty on target for most conferences, just ramping up for the main event on Wednesday. Which (as I’m sure you’ve already heard) was the presentation, “10 Things To Supercharge Your SEM Campaigns” given by Michael Mothner and Michael Stone.
If you were one of the unlucky patrons of this conference who missed out on this, I highly suggest you attend a webinar on this. Dates for webinars will be announced soon. The trip was a whirlwind of handshakes, concise conversation and fantastic food. Sadly, it seemed to be over as soon as it began. But, I’d like to take the time to thank all those involved in such a fun and informative convention! I look forward to next year being even better!
