Conferences Show SEO Going Mainstream, Get on Board for Less

Those who have been in the field of SEO for years, know it’s been a long journey of consistently making a case for and proving the value of search for business. As of late, SEO seems like it’s getting some serious mainstream attention, finally penetrating the psyche of corporations across industries, across the globe.

With the U.S. recession affecting the way many businesses approach their survival, Internet marketing and SEO has worked its way to the forefront of marketing dollar spend. Everywhere you turn, seems like people are talking about the value of Internet marketing.

It’s apparent that businesses outside traditional search-oriented sectors are looking to SEO and Internet marketing as part of their business strategy with the addition of search-focused topics and training at industry conferences.

Bruce Clay, Inc. began its one-day training at conferences and seminars geared towards the search industry more than a year ago, as the demand for an abbreviated version of the renowned SEOToolSet® training grew. But lately, we’ve been asked to speak and train at events geared towards a broader audience of professionals, those in other industries who are just now adding search and Internet marketing to their business plans.

Brain Combs and PubCon Attendees

Take, for example, the wild success we had with our debut one-day training at the recent ad:tech San Francisco conference in April. The conference, geared towards media, marketing and technology professionals, added the Bruce Clay, Inc. SEO training session to its agenda this year, which hosted a sold-out, packed room of professionals — many of whom were just starting out with SEO.

It’s events like these that are telling us loud and clear that SEO isn’t just for “the other guys” anymore; that businesses must make search and Internet marketing a priority if they want to survive and thrive in the coming years. For many, a shift in focus to Internet marketing can make or break a company’s existence in these fragile times.

SEO will continue to grow of the next 5-10 years – there are so many businesses that do not work on the internet with the help of SEO’s. Lots of room to grow the SEO side of things.

So much room to grow, Jason, totally agree. Thanks for joining the discussion.

Bringing SEO to the great majority of businesses that don’t currently employ it is going to be one of the biggest markets over the next 5 years.

Hi, Tom, We agree it’s going to be huge. Thanks for your comment!
