Start the year off in the best way possible

An SEO Event like no other

SEO is a really small industry once you are in it.

Being immersed in it for the past 11 years, I’ve been fortunate to meet some fantastic people that I'm lucky enough to call good friends.

Most people in the industry will have crossed paths with James Norquey at one time or another. I met him many years ago and he is one of the first people that I reach out to about anything SEO or business and he's always happy to lend a valuable ear.

When James told me he was thinking about putting on an SEO focused event in Australia, I was excited.

I’ve been to many events with James (some where he was a speaker) and I know he has two things going for him:

  • He knows SEO like nobody else
  • He knows everyone in the industry

With over 14 years experience in SEO & growth marketing; his own SEO Agency Prosperity Media (Previously awarded best agency in Australia by SEMrush); as well as being a regular speaker at events like SMX, DMA, DigiMarCon, and StartCon, there is nobody better to put this event on for the SEO community.

The good thing about the Online Marketing Sydney Conference is it’s not just going to be your usual speakers. James mentioned it was really important to “...have more underground speakers who you might not know yet as they have a wealth of knowledge to share”.

One of the most important things to know about any event is who's speaking! I may be a little biased (The second speaker down is apparently amazing), but I am pretty excited about hearing from this lineup:

  • Jared Codling – Founder New Hack Every Week and top growth hacker
  • James Richardson – Co-Founder, Optimising
  • Bernard Huang Co-founder of Clearscope & Twitchmetrics(USA)
  • Matt Diggity - Diggity Marketing & Authority Builders (Thailand/USA)
  • Kate Toon – Founder Recipe for SEO Success
  • Craig Campbell - SEO & Affiliate Marketing Expert (Scotland)
  • Dennis Graham – PPC Specialist
  • Louisa Dahl - CEO Interactive Minds.
  • James Norquay – SEO Director
  • Jeff Deutsch - SEO & Growth Marketing (USA)
  • Amanda King - SEO Specialist Optus
  • Ray Corcoran – Marketing Consultant
  • Richard Brus – Founder SERPworx plugin & SEO Professional.
  • Dejan Mladenovski – Technical SEO
  • Peter Mead – Founder of SEO Melbourne Meetup & SEO Professional
  • Woj Kwaski - Founder Kwasi

Now there are some big names on the list, but don’t be too daunted! The event will have a little bit for all levels and is aimed at the following types of people:

  • SEO’s of any level - Entry, Mid, Advanced.
  • Digital Marketing Managers
  • PPC Managers
  • eCommerce Owners
  • Business Owners looking to grow website traffic or learn about SEO.
  • Affiliate Marketers
  • Anyone else interested in learning from the best about how they can drive more traffic and conversions to their website

For James, creating this event has been about trying to bring together a little bit of what he’s experienced from other great events in Australia, and around the world.

I asked James what his 3 favourite events were from around the world:

James norquay
  1. Mozcon: An amazing SEO event (One of the best put together logistically that you'll see).
  2. Chang Mai SEO Conference: Thailand based conference, Matt Diggity and his team have done a great job running this event; it’s highly actionable for SEOs.
  3. Digital Marketers Australia; a Melbourne based event in the same week as our conference. Stephen who runs the event is a real gun digital marketer.

I am really excited about speaking, but also attending this great event, which I hope is the first of many.
