What I Learned From 10+ Years Of Public Speaking & How You Can Rock The [Trade] Show

I get a huge rush from giving a speech, something like what other people experience from downing 3 red bulls and lb of candy. You can too. Even if the prospect of it currently makes you sweaty and uncomfortable, public speaking can be learned. I’ve studied some of the best businessmen performing this art – and some of the best entertainers, too. Here are some lessons I’ve learned. Hopefully the…

London SES Feedback on Link Building Methods and Risks

Last week I spoke in London at the Search Engine Strategies (SES) Conference about “Link Building – Methods and Risks”. I was lucky in that I had a 1 hours time slot all to myself, rather than the usual 10-15 minutes that one normally gets when you’re on a panel with others.

London SES: Link Building – Methods and Risks with Jim Boykin – Feb

It’s funny…I’ve been looking at a lot of internet marketing conferences for 2010….and it’s amazing the percentage of Social Media panels compared to “Organic search engine rankings” panels… it seems like 85% of all panels are “social media” related, 14 percent are ppc, analytics, usability, other marketing topics”, and 2% are “organic rankings” topics. I noticed that at SES London (feb 16-19) and SES NYC (march 22-26) that there were…

You need to be at SMX West this year.

Why Liveblogging is Not Useless or Evil

In case you missed it, there’s quite a brou-ha-ha on Sphinn concerning John Coronella’s condemnation of liveblogging. The post has been Sphunn and Desphunn. The comments are where the real meat of the conversation is. And far be it for me not to add my two cents to the conversation. Liveblogging helps people like me, who can’t attend conferences because 1) other work and family obligations, 2) company has already…
