B2B Camp Atlanta was this weekend. It’s an unconference-style event, and for those who have never been before here’s the gist:
- The break-out sessions are voted on the morning of the event
- Speakers get 30 seconds to pitch their sessions and try to get attendees to vote for them
- Pitching a session in front of a room full of B2B marketers and techies (350+ attendees) is terrifying
- Pitching a session in front of a room full of B2B marketers and techies is kind of fun

My Session: Offering SEO Services to Your Clients: The Opportunities & Challenges
I pitched a session called “Offering SEO Services to Your Clients: The Opportunities & Challenges.” It was intended to be a roundtable closed mastermind session comprised of fellow freelancers, consultants, and marketers who could come together to discuss SEO/online marketing services and….you guessed it…opportunities and challenges.
While my session got selected, a technical glitch prevented my session from occurring. Don’t ask. Not sure what happened. Super sad about it. There’s always next year!
B2B Camp Session Takeaways
To give homage to the awesome speakers whose workshops I attended, below are photos with a few takeaways:
1. Stacy Williams of Prominent Placement – 10 Ways Search Marketing for B2B is Different – How to Maximize Results
- My Biggest takeaway? Keyword research is never done. Embrace keyword research. Learn it. Love it.
2. John Peltier of Johnpeltier.com: Inbound Marketing Techniques for Personal Branding
- My biggest takeaway? You must have an active, targeted presence online if you are a marketing professional existing in the year 2013. Resistance is futile. DO IT. And have a specialty. That helps tremendously. Oh, and write an ebook. That helps too.
- Biggest Takeaway: Two words – Google Alerts. I honestly think Google Alerts are a very underused tool. I use Google Alerts to keep track of my important keywords, competitors, my brand and reputation, industry research, content ideas, etc.
