Latest Tactics for Paid Amplification with YouTube Advertising
YouTube has been taking the digital marketing world by storm, and it continues to be one of the best places for digital advertisement online. This is largely due to the fact that there is a much lower UAC than most channels, especially the big search engine platforms like Google. But the YouTube paid placement algorithm is far from straightforward and user-friendly, so it can seem nearly impossible to navigate on your own. This has created a sink or swim kind of situation where users often teach themselves what to do and not to do as they try to stay ahead of the competition on their own. In Latest Tactics for Paid Amplification with YouTube Advertising, Marlon Doll provides expert guidance on how to harness the full potential of YouTube advertising for yourself and your brand. In this session, you’ll learn the elements of YouTube ads that convert, discover the secrets to optimizing YouTube ad campaigns, and much more.
LinkedIn Ads: The B2B Marketer’s Silver Bullet
LinkedIn first started out as the go-to place to post your resume and to create a professional portfolio to help you find a job. Today, with over 600 million users and new features being launched monthly, LinkedIn has evolved to be so much more. It is a networking site, job board, marketing stage, and advertising space. But building your personal or business brand while also working on marketing, advertising, and social promotions can be a challenge, especially when you are trying to balance all of this on the same platform. In LinkedIn Ads: The B2B Marketer’s Silver Bullet, AJ Wilcox helps make it less of a challenge to make your mark on the LinkedIn platform by offering the latest and greatest tactics and techniques that will bring you results on the platform. Learn how to ace your strategy before you pay to play, discover hacks to help you save money, and find out when to opt out of ad campaigns that don’t convert.
Twitter: Advanced Optimizing Tactics
Chris Silver Smith
Twitter can provide significant value for companies and personal brands that want to boost their reach, both on Twitter and the search engines. Google will not only index tweets, but it will also rank this content in the search results for brand names and keywords. But you’ll only get the benefits of Twitter if you leverage the platform effectively. Chris Silver Smith helps you eliminate the guesswork of Twitter and hone in on tactics that help boost your presence on the platform and the search engines in his session, Twitter: Advanced Optimizing Tactics. Learn how Google crawls, interprets, and ranks Twitter content as well as how your followers and likes can affect your search rankings. You’ll also get a better understanding of how your Twitter profile and tweets can be optimized for search rankings.
Organic Traffic is Not Dead-How to Drive More Visitors to Your Content
It’s easy to get frustrated with changing Google algorithms. In fact, you may even feel like nothing works anymore to help you boost visibility on the search engines except for Google AdWords. But the truth is that organic traffic is not dead. And Holly Homer shows us how to get more out of organic content marketing in her session, Organic Traffic is Not Dead: How to Drive More Visitors to Your Content. Homer has been leveraging organic traffic for years, getting between 2 – 10 million page views per month while building her social media following and email list without paid adds. She provides insight and guidance into how businesses can leverage organic traffic sources by providing a better understanding of evolving algorithms.
