Ann Handley is our opening keynote!
So much of SEO today is about quality of content. Content attracts links (or not). It’s a major factor in whether your site gets chosen for featured snippets, or ranks for semantic search. Content converts customers. If you call yourself an SEO, you’re likely thinking about content almost as much as SEO itself.
You may not be a content creator. Yet you have table stakes in your site featuring compelling content that visitors find helpful, and that Google loves to show off in the results. You need to inspire your writers and influence content strategy. The question is, how?
This is why we’re so excited about adding Ann Handley to SEJ Summit; she’s the perfect complement to a conference “for SEOs, by SEOs”. Ann’s a content MASTER who will demonstrate you don’t have to be a writing nerd to understand concepts of creating vibrant content that stands above your competition. And for those of you that consider yourselves writing nerds (like myself), get ready to bow down on May 11.
