From a workshop on storytelling to a how-to on giving Google what they want, plus the Rocks Digital Marketing Clinic, the Digital Track rounds outs the workshop announcements and the day.
We’ll be celebrating Local Search Day for the second time at Rocks Digital and we are doing the day up right! Over half of the presentations are focused on local search and SEO.
This is our 6th year of celebrating Social Media Day on June 30. This date is actually a big factor for each year’s conference. From the very first keynote by presenter Andrea Vahl in year one, all the way up to four keynotes this year, we have come a long way, and Social Media Day is a big part of the celebration.
We have a rocking time planned and we want to see you there! If you haven’t registered yet, the time to act is now.
