At PodCamp Toronto 2014, I took part in the Canadian Internet Marketing Association (CIMA) Inbound Marketing Discussion Panel. The objective was for the panelists to field open air questions on personal branding, SEO social media networking, content marketing, business and entrepreneurship, startups, and related topics. Questions answered at CIMA discussion panels could be:
- Online marketing advice for startups, small businesses, and enterprise level companies.
- Tips on SEO, social media marketing, and other forms of inbound marketing.
- How to practice effective Internet marketing.
- Share your challenges and learn what you can do differently next time.
The event was a tremendous success!
If you’re into the above topics, watch the video! To get more active in your local online marketing community, consider joining CIMA. The video is about 55 minutes. The mix of panelists was great because it really brought a varied perspective to the discussion.
The event host was Rob Campbell (@roberrific), a search engine optimization professional and accomplished storyteller who specializes in making juicy incoming links to client websites.
