SMM Day, 20th of May
This Conference was a technical nightmare. I was very lucky to have Eric&Mark first, so we had a few minutes to test … and found out that Mark’s connection has died… His office is next door to Eric’s, so we had two presenters in front of one computer. Thanks for brilliants of Eric&Mark nobody noticed, well I am sure everyone thought it was the plan.
There were no technical issues with Randy, but he was ill with the flu. Didn’t effect quality, though, an impressive presentation about… craft beer.
Ben and Dustin were on Hangouts, and we couldn’t get a picture from Ben for a few minutes, he wasn’t able to step into Dustin office, but it worked after all.
I wish we could have more than three presentations, but that was format given to me….
Eric Enge&Mark Traphagen
Eric is founder and CEO, and Mark is Senior Director of Marketing, at Stone Temple Consulting, a 60+ person digital marketing agency serving some of the top brands in the world. Eric is also lead author of The Art of SEO, and Eric and Mark both write for major publications and speak at top marketing conferences. “Here’s Why” Digital Marketing Videos became Classics. These short videos are very valuable and hilarious at the same time, I don’t think there is anything that matches them if you are up to video learning.

He is the lead marketer for KAYAK, as well as the author of three books covering the topics of content marketing & SEO, social engagement, and creating better business websites.

This isn’t formal Q&A with Ammon Johns, more like a friendly chat, unfortunatelly it didn’t make to this conference, because of the format limitations, but it should, so I decided to published it here. I hope you enjoy it.
