Why You Should Attend State of Search

“Must see” expert speakers and networking opps

2014 State of Search speakers
State of Search speakers from 2014

Like most digital marketing professionals, you probably attend a few local networking events or conferences throughout the year. Some of them you found useful and informative, while others…not so much.

What if you could attend a single conference where you could hear from industry leading experts covering the latest happenings and best practices in SEO, search engine marketing and social media? What if you could attend a conference where you could network with popular digital marketing professionals? What if I said this can’t miss event was not at your stereotypical hotel but rather a creative hip atmosphere of Dallas’ Deep Ellum? If this sounds up your alley, then you should attend the best premier digital marketing conference of the South, the State of Search conference held on November 16 – 17, in Dallas, Texas.

State of Search is two days full of high-value sessions from well-respected marketing professionals. The events feature four SEM related tracks spanning SEO, Local SEO, Social, PPC, email, e-commerce, content marketing, and much more.

$2500 worth of conference for less than $500? Now I have your attention…

Some nationally recognized digital marketing conferences run close to $2,000 for an all-access pass, while the larger ones (typically found in Vegas or New York) have been known to charge upwards of $2,500.

These are excellent events with powerhouse speakers, but we know how challenging it can be to convince your boss (or yourself) about the ROI of attending a conference at those prices. State of Search offers you the same caliber of speakers as the $2,500 popular conferences (e.g. Rand Fishkin, Duane Forester, Marty Weintraub to name a few).

If you hurry, you can grab tickets at the Super Early Bird price of $250! Early Bird registration for $350 starts on June 1, 2015.
