Pubcon Liveblog: Jason Calacanis on Startups that Save the World

Jason Calacanis at Pubcon

Jason Calacanis is an angel investor who has invested in companies including Uber, ChartBeat, Whisper, SignPost and Thumbtack. He invests $10 million a year and meets with 15 companies a week.

“I spend a lot of my time thinking bigger,” Calacanis says. “And a lot of that has to do with watching Google say ‘I have absolutely no limit to my ambition.’ I spend a lot of time meeting with startups and founders … And that puts me in a unique position to be optimistic and opportunistic.”

Calacanis’s keynote is unique – it’s not tactical or strategy-driven. It’s steeped in reality and meant to simply inspire and inform the audience of the amazing progress that startups and forward-thinking companies are bring to the world in the areas of six global problems. Startups, he asserts, will solve our world’s problems rather than governments. His keynote, that is meant to inspire us, will cover major advances by tech and startup companies.

Pubcon Keynote Liveblog: Chris Brogan on Mission-Driven Execution

Chris Brogan at Pubcon Las Vegas 2014

In Wednesday morning’s opening keynote from Pubcon Las Vegas, Chris Brogan shares inspiring examples of brand and mission. Keep the mission alive with content and participation. Make the users the content creators. Brand is the outward expression of a mission. Mission is what drives your deepest purpose. Match these well for excellence.

Mission is the mast. Service fills the sails. Content is the drum that calls us together. Mission and service together is the best it can be. Give people something bigger than the sales pitch and they’ll sell it FOR you.

But YOU have to believe, too.

Pubcon Keynote Liveblog: The Importance of ‘Buyer Legends’ with Jeffrey Eisenberg

buyer-legends-pubcon-600

“Buyer legends” are what marketer and bestselling author Jeffrey Eisenberg calls the narratives that craft a customer journey – and it’s also the name the company that he runs with his brother. In this morning’s keynote, Eisenberg will dive into buyer legends, exploring why they matter and what goes into them.

People want wisdom. What they’re always looking for is one thing – they love to hear one thing – do this little thing and everything will work. They just love to take one nugget that makes a huge impact on their business.

But we don’t have just one thing. There’s so much that goes into online marketing, and marketing at large. Knowing that there can be no one single thing that makes or break marketing, buyer legends become all the more important. Buyer legends are the narrative that craft a customer journey, but they’re also an integral business process.

SMX East Keynote: BuzzFeed Founder Jonah Peretti Talks Going Viral, SEO, Social Media & More

Jonah Peretti and Danny Sullivan at SMX East Keynote Conversation

The Search Marketing Expo (SMX) East 2014 keynote speaker is Jonah Peretti, founder of BuzzFeed. Peretti has a history of Internet brilliance – before founding BuzzFeed, he was a co-founder of the Huffington Post. For tonight’s grand finale, Search Engine Land Founding Editor Danny Sullivan will pick Peretti’s brain on the early days of SEO at the Huffington Post, the nature of social sharing, the nuances of different social networks, the role (or lack thereof) of SEO at BuzzFeed, native advertising, and more.

Three key takeaways, right off the bat:

  • When you try to make something that works for search and social instead of focusing on just one, you end up making something that doesn’t work for either
  • Users expect media to be broader than just hard news — having the comics alongside politics, or kitten videos alongside coverage of the Ebola crisis, are appropriate for news sites.
  • Don’t make assumptions about why something succeeds. Test it. Think you went viral because of X, Y and Z? Do X, Y and Z again. See what happens.
