Content marketers

“Content is King.” Content makes the internet go round. Without it, there’s nothing to optimize on the search engines.

What are the real benefits of attending MozCon 2019 according to real attendees:

People who have attended the event said that the event has helped them a lot. They learned different things, get updated with the trends, and grown their network.

It is an opportunity to go the extra mile for your customers

One attendee praised WordStream Founder Larry Kim, a frequent public speaker, who gave a presentation at MozCon 2018. His advice? Forget the goal that you want to reach the #1 spot on SERPS, but focus your energy on how you can enhance the happiness of your customers.

Content that only focuses on optimization in order to rank isn’t going to win.

Always aim to offer content that is valuable for the readers and optimized for search engines. You’ll automatically get on top of the SERPs.

It is an opportunity to progress your brand

Do not limit your capacity based on your job description. Most employees are expected to do their jobs well based on their positions.

However, if you want your business to grow, you must not limit your knowledge and skills. You must experiment and see how your brand can progress.

If you’re a business owner, encourage and inspire your employees to do the same. How can you inspire them to try new things outside their job description?

Always be a good leader. If they see that you are doing the same they will follow. Teach them to learn and recreate.

Send your employees to the event to see how they can progress. Little by little, they can apply what they have learned and do things outside their job.

Personalize your marketing

At MozCon, you’ll learn techniques on how you can personalize your marketing. Identify your target audience and study their demographics or common behaviors.

The one-size-fits-all practice is no longer acceptable. Why not personalize a landing page for your audience?

Target their needs. It can land to a boost in your conversion rates.

Build a community that targets people’s issues, opinions, and experiences.

A lot of businesses built communities but failed. Why? Because they were too busy building communities for themselves.

They forget to target people. When you build a community, target the problems they have, offer solutions. Pinpoint their opinions, ask something that will grow discussions. Ask their experiences, let them share it.

At MozCon, you’ll learn how you build communities that work. It’s because they have topics rich in information that is designed to help your business and grow your network.

MozCon happens each year. It all started in 2011.

Since then, the attendance has grown 152 percent. In fact, it is tagged as the "the best conference a marketer can attend."

It is a quality conference that began as a SEO training seminar. From its roots, it has expanded the topics it discusses as well as the speakers invited in the event.

MozCon is more about “who’s who” in the digital marketing industry and the burgeoning companies. It is always focused on building connection among attendees and sharing ideas.

MozCon’s goal is to become inclusive. They keep it affordable as possible while ensuring value to the attendees.

It has been in the industry for 8 years. Up to this day, it remained affordable even to freelancers and employees.

Danielle Launders, Community Events Manager for MozCon claimed that the event is committed to giving affordable registration prices while giving value to the clients.

To do this, they need to hit these goals:

  • They develop a year-long tactic to sell registrations and tickets.

  • They track tickets in real-time and conduct marketing campaigns.

  • They make registration and check-in as easy as possible.

The organizer makes it a point to make each talk actionable. It has expanded its topics and product selection.

Moreover, it has a balance of old and new speakers in the niche. It also has returning speakers who talk about the latest, issues and other topics in digital marketing.
