A tribute to Hamlet Batista

Hamlet Batista was a great man who contributed a lot to the SEO community at large and was one of the most sought after international SEO experts and speakers.

He was supposed to speak at this event and literally 2h before starting we got word that he had passed away due to complications with the Coronavirus. Needless to say we were shocked and devastated.

That is why we decided to dedicate this event in his memory.

Rest in peace, dear Hamlet.

Getting Smart & Smashing Targets With Your Digital PR Strategy

Digital PR has become one of the most important aspects of building a brand online.

Olivia shows us how to drive more leads, sign-ups, sales, subscribers and customers using digital PR in 2021.

“Old school” digital PR (campaign, asset, media list, pitches, traditional link building tactics, guest posting) is no longer as effective in 2021 – instead you should use the “New school” approach:

  • Research
  • Design
  • List building
  • Pitching
  • Reporting

Is your SEO agency telling you the whole truth about your SEO revenue potential

Does it make sense for your company or your client to invest in SEO?

How can you show them the revenue potential that SEO can bring?

  • Most agencies still calculate the SEO revenue potential based on the old school formula, that does not take into account the changes in the SERPs
  • which Keywords you should NOT be optimizing your website for
  • organic position 1 can have between 13% and 46% CTR – how is that possible
  • how do you win at SEO in 2021: go long-tail and become a brand
