Yeah so it’s June 20, 2015. And while for 99% of the world, that may not mean anything, for me it means SEO Summit 2015. It’s the sequel to my first shot at organizing an SEO conference – ever.
And it’s one of the most actionable SEO conferences to be in. Believe me – I’ve been to a lot.
SEO Summit started as an advocacy – mostly against SEO seminars and conferences that are either too casual or too expensive. It’s the balance between too many speakers that the take-home becomes confusing, with an obvious lack of substance and content, which leads to an end-result that is ultimately frustrating.
I can honestly say that I’ve never been more proud as an SEO specialist than when I was today. Going on-stage at the SEO Summit with two amazing co-speakers and a special panelist in the Q&A section was amazing. Sam Nam and Grant Merriel almost made me feel bad because they were just so good in delivering their talks about SEO, business processes, and thought leadership on stage. On top of that, the 21-year-old Jon Cooper unloaded gold in the form of processes, strategies, and advise when it comes to link building.
There are very few people in this world who can compare to the knowledge and expertise of these guys and we had them all in one room.
I’m very blessed to be able to witness this event unfold and to be an integral part of it. As it is, I’m just a God-appointed steward of what the event was all about. I hope and pray that because of today, the Philippine SEO community has been uplifted in the sense that people see us in a different light – a better light.
Somewhere in the crowd were some of SEO Hacker’s clients. I hope and pray that they were able to take out actionable insights and that they were able to realize the level of thought leadership and value that we bring to their business. In all this, I hope that they would learn to appreciate us better as their digital marketing team.
Today is an important day for me and for the SEO Hacker team. This marks a day that fulfills SEO Summit for what it should be – the most actionable, no-nonsense SEO Conference in the Philippines.
I’m grateful and thankful to everyone who attended, volunteered and supported the SEO Summit. You guys made it an awesome event.
Ultimately, I thank God through who’s grace, this event wouldn’t have happened because SEO Hacker would simply not exist.
