Learn From The Experts: Spotlight On SMX East 2014 Speakers

Learn From The Experts: Spotlight On SMX East 2014 Speakers

This post is Sponsored by Search Marketing Expo – SMX East, September 30 – October 2 in New York City.

Leading search marketing conference, SMX East, is returning to New York City on September 30 through October 2 at the Jacob K Javits Center. Last month we did a general preview about what to expect at SMX East, this month we’re going to focus solely on the world-class speakers in attendance.

You’ll hear from:

  • Brand marketers from the Fortune 500, e-retailers, and innovative startups. Learn the latest from Microsoft, Buzzfeed, The Home Depot, Microsoft, Yahoo, IBM, Expedia, and others.
  • Experts from full-service and boutique agencies with experience managing countless campaigns of all shapes and sizes.
  • Speakers from Google, Bing, and other media companies will be there, too. Don’t miss your chance to put your questions directly to the search engines.

While we can’t possibly highlight all the speakers in this one post, we’ll highlight a few that are worth the price of admission alone.

Keynote with BuzzFeed Founder & CEO Jonah Peretti


Everyone likes to talk about creating buzz, but few have mastered the art of making content go viral like Jonah Peretti. He’s the founder of BuzzFeed, the wildly popular social news and entertainment website that has scored huge successes with quizzes, listicles, and even long-form content.

Learn about leveraging the viral aspects of the internet during Peretti’s keynote that will touch on the most compelling uses of social media, the new wave of brands and native advertising, where search marketing fits into the mix, and more.
