Yesterday I attended Econsultancy’s Digital Cream event, which we host annually, and which brings together around 300 client-side e-commerce brains together for a day of intense knowledge sharing.
The event format is based on roundtables, which are a core part of our staple diet. We’ve been running roundtables since I joined Econsultancy back in 2003, and they inform much of the best practice insight that underpins our research. They are incredibly helpful.
Digital Cream is essentially roundtables on steroids… there are more than 20 of them, in one day. I have a few takeaways from the event that I’d like to share. By all means add yours in the comments section underneath this post, or let us know if you blog about the event, as Simon Lilly and Nick Allen have done. Our thanks to all who participated.
Before we begin I should probably mention a couple of similar events, which are are free to attend for client-side folks. Firstly, there is Peer Summit 2011, which takes place in New York in early June. Secondly, there is Digital Cream Dubai, which is our first big event in the Middle East and takes place on 12 April. Do sign up if you're local.
I'm moderating the SEO roundtable discussions at the upcoming Econsultancy Digital Cream where client-side marketers discuss approaches to improve their digital marketing.
On the SEO table, the discussion naturally turns to "Advanced" SEO tactics. So to prepare for the event, I'm currently thinking through what is Advanced SEO and what is new for SEO in 2011.
This is a preview of what I think the major issues are to succeed with SEO in 2011 and I'll share what we discuss at the event afterwards.
Last week some of us from Econsultancy US had the pleasure of
traveling to London for the Digital Cream event (the equivalent of
September's Peer Summit
in New York). The day included a short talk on hot topics from the
US perspective. In Part One, we looked at social media in general. This post finishes up with social commerce and email.
It was good to attend Econsultancy's Digital Cream event last week. It was my first due to diary clashes, although it’s now in its fourth year. I moderated a roundtable on web analytics, which is one of my main digital passions, so it was good to see analytics was one of the most popular topics.
This post summarises the main challenges and gives tips on approaches the managers present are using to overcome them. The Econsultancy peer summits operate according to “Chatham House rules”, so there is no attribution to companies.
