Who is this event for?


10:00 ‘Winners accelerate in the turns’

Opening remarks on marketing through uncertainty with our CEO, Geoff Griffiths

An overview of the challenges businesses are currently facing, the effect this has on marketing teams specifically and why continued investment into organic marketing is part of the solution.

10:15 ‘Harness the power of your own data’

Data foundations and how to use data to unite teams across the business with our Head of Data, Gary Stubbenhagen

When times are tough, it’s essential to have a clear, demonstrable, and positive impact on business performance. And, while there are a wealth of SEO tools based on second- and third-party data, they cannot see the bottom line. Gary will talk you through why tooling alone isn’t enough and how to unlock real insight from your data to action across your digital marketing channels.

11:00 ‘Data to rely on when there’s no room for error’

Making effective organic decisions in a changing landscape with our Performance Director, Daniel Butler

Real world examples of brands that performed through the pandemic, why that potentially flipped for some post-pandemic and how the effects are still being felt today in different ways. Learning from these, we look at how to get comfortable with uncertainty as organic marketers and better prepare for the future by finding and using the data that matters – to ultimately control the one controllable that is your marketing strategy.

12:00 ‘Strategy is important but execution is everything’

A panel discussion on getting recommendations implemented and effecting organisational change with Gousto and Lovecrafts, hosted by Austine Esezobor, Creator and Host of Democratizing SEO podcast

Three things you’ll take away from this discussion:

  1. Your ability to implement your SEO strategy is what determines the growth of your site’s visibility. Learn where to invest your time and resource for implementation success.
  2. A low awareness of SEO within your business can compromise your site’s ranking ability. Learn what you can do to protect against regression now and in the future.
  3. It takes more than SEOs to make SEO a success. Learn how to convince other business stakeholders to join you for the journey.

13:00 ‘Don’t leave opportunity on the table’

Making the most of the traffic you’re already getting with our Senior UX and Content Strategist, Abbey Grocott

A 5-point plan on how to use SEO to improve content efficiency. In this session you’ll learn why understanding and communicating content’s role in achieving performance goals is key, where to find what motivates your audience right now and how to use your existing content to push them to convert under times of increased competition. Find out exactly how content is categorised, surfaced and presented to users – and stress test your information architecture by checking that this aligns with each of your user journeys.

14:00 ‘Selling SEO to the CEO’
