  • Let's talk SEO: The Power of Content and the evolution of Voice

    December 17, 2018  7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    The time for the next Content Marketing Meetup is here!

    Join us this Monday, December 10th, 7pm, at Orange Grove.

    "Let's talk SEO: The Power of Content and the evolution of Voice Search."

    Select industry experts will join us to share content and SEO best practices, as well as tips and insights on the latest algorithmic updates.

    For you eCommerce people, we have something amazing:
    Executives from OΝ.marketing will share insights from the most important study ever conducted in Greece on the way people search on Google before they buy a product.
    The study, which is done by OΝ.marketing, is based on 500.000.000 searches for eCommerce products! Sounds amazing? Yes, it is!

    We’ll also discuss the evolution of Voice Search!

    As Alexa, Siri and the rest of voice assistants are changing the way we interact with the online world, brands should now develop a complete Voice Search strategy. We’ll explore how important this is and what businesses need to know in order to be prepared for this upcoming change in Search.

    Our speakers (confirmed so far):

    - Panos Ladas: Managing Director at OΝ.marketing.

    Panos is probably the most experienced SEO professional in Greece. He will share all the necessary insights and tips we Marketers need to know in order to make the search engine “thirsty” for our content.

    We expect 2 more speakers to confirm! They come from very important companies and they have some very nice best practices to share with us.

    So, stay tuned for updates on this!

    Of course, it is free to attend so RSVP today!
