Marketing Melodie Socializes DOMAINfest 2010
We all know that having prime real estate is key to success in the brick and mortar world. The location of your store in the mall plays a significant role in how much walk in traffic you get, the location of your home and its accessibility often determines if you’ll have many visitors and the location of your office building can even affect employee productivity. What many don’t know is that the same is true for internet real estate. Having an accessible domain name boosts site traffic through direct navigation (when the consumer types your domain name directly into the address bar), heightens branding advantages and significantly enhances your search engine results.
Your website is the storefront of your business and your domain name is the first impression you make for your company. The significance of domain names is apparent so in 2006, DomainSponsor, an Oversee.net company launched DOMAINfest, a premiere conference built to serve the domain industry. The show truly understands domain professionals’ needs. The goal is to inspire and support the industry by providing valuable content, informative sessions and a opportunities to bring domain industry professionals and constituents together to learn, network and do business with each other.
I am honored to announce that I’ll be a featured speaker at DOMAINfest 2010 on Wednesday January 27th 3:30pm – 4:45pm, Domain Names: How Prime Internet Real Estate Builds SEO and SEM Success. My panel includes two renowned SEO professionals, Bruce Clay (Bruce Clay, Inc.) and Danny Sullivan (Editor, Search Engine Land) along with Richard Jalchandra (President and CEO, Technorati Media) and Dan Ho (Adknowledge). I’m educating the audience on achieving success from a social media perspective. Social Media is a new topic at DOMAINfest so I’m grateful for an opportunity to socialize the event and share my knowledge with an amazing lineup of professionals.
