Marty Weintraub @aimClear is sharing a tactical retargeting field guide for really smart marketers. Every PPC agency in the world is calling themselves a DSP because it’s not really hard to do it. We all want a slice of it. Retargeting is a simple concept. Someone comes to your website, touches you for whatever certain [...]
Rhea Drysdale @Rhea is setting the context: don’t take every recommendation and try to implement it, but do implement something. Tie your business goals to your metrics. “Welcome to the new age.” This is a song and it was in the back of her mind when she put this presentation together. SEO is evolving, it [...]

Holy heatmap have you seen the SMX West agenda? This is some next level content. Getting to attend an educational series like the one going down next week in San Jose is truly one of the perks of the job. Of course it’s not all fun times and smart insights while at SMX; I earn my keep by liveblogging. And with an agenda like this, picking the sessions to attend has been the hardest part! But I did it, and after the fold down you’ll see the SMX West sessions you’ll find on the blog next week. Ad retargeting, YouTube PPC, Google Knowledge Graph, Facebook Graph Search, authorship and online identity — it’s all here!

Mad Men, content as gold (or currency) and the interactive realities now coming to life via e-books, social reader apps and mobile devices were hot topics at the Intelligent Content Conference held earlier this month in San Francisco.
The 5th annual event focuses on advanced information creation, management and delivery strategies and had a number of great sessions for anyone who deals with content—not just creators but information architects and strategists, too.
According to the 2013 B2B Content Marketing Benchmarks, Budgets and Trends report from the Content Marketing Institute and Marketing Profs, the #1 challenge content marketers face is producing enough content.
In my line of work, I focus on daily challenges faced by curators and creators who are trying to bulk up their owned media. The insights here are weighted heavily toward that audience. But there have been tremendous shifts in publishing. Every company is getting into the game and the need for intelligent content is now critical. This conference taught me a lot and is a great resource for any content creator who wants their content to be viable in the future.

Education and professional self improvement are works in progress and it’s never too late to start. However, they say the early bird gets the worm, and in the case of next month’s SMX West in San Jose, that worm is a discount on registration. Early bird pricing for the conference ends this Friday. Add to that 10% discount code SMXW13bruceclay and the justification for this investment is overwhelming.
Just be sure not to miss the SEO Workshop Bruce presents at SMX West to take full advantage of this opportunity to learn from search and social thought leaders.

Happy (end of) Monday! Last week, the BCI gang was at SES San Francisco where we covered 18 sessions, just for you. And I’m not sure if it was the sessions we chose, a shift in interest among marketers, or a rebrand move by SES, but it definitely felt like the sessions were getting into more sophisticated topics on analyzing data and multichannel marketing.
I’m a fan, and think it definitely showcased some of the great things companies are doing out there to elevate the discipline and their brand’s experience.
We heard from Googlers like Avinash Kaushik and Matt Cutts as well. Avinash’s approach to marketing in the digital age, I think, speaks volumes about Google’s stance on how businesses should be approaching their marketing online; that is, look at the big picture.
