Back in 1999 (before the bubble burst!), a young Adam Dorfman, burned out from the music industry, had a choice to make. He created websites in the music industry and could take a job doing something called “SEO,” or use his rave and club skills to become an event planner.
We thank the lucky stars he picked the former.
No stranger to the State of Search stage, Adam returns not just for the experience, but because he loves the people and connections he makes. He’s also spoken at SMX West this year.
Adam now has over 16 years experience in local and organic search, PPC, and social media marketing. You’ll find his work and case studies all around the internet, including Search Engine Watch and Marketing Land.
Adam’s a Dallas native looking forward to the homecoming. In the meantime, he works up in Chicago as Senior Vice President of Product and Technology at SIM Partners.
He told us if you want an easy conversation starter with him, just pull him aside and ask him what he thinks of ‘growth-hacking.’ Adam has a 10 minute rant on why the startup world needs to cut this vocabulary out of their meetings and lives.
We welcome Adam back and expect to see him on our stage in the near future as well!
