This year Kristjan Mar Hauksson from Nordic eMarketing will be a key speaker, offering his expert knowledge on online PR and Corporate Communications. Kristjan is the Founder and Director of Search & Online Communications at Nordic eMarketing. The session is called “Search, PR and the Social Butterfly” taking social media to the boardroom!
Found this really good article called “SEO as a Marketing Discipline” written by Rishi Lakhani. It illustrates in a very good way the problems the search marketing industry is going through and what it is that is holding back the upper management. It’s a reccomended read for those wanting to understand how we can make this industry more professional.
“I don’t mean ignorance in a negative way – I mean people genuinely don’t understand the work involved behind SEO – especially at the top level of any organisation. Most people use search engines – but most assume their existence and the results pages as part of life.”
iFront is a conference managed by Nenad Stanojlovic in behalf the Serbian consulting company owned by visionary Vladimir Milisavljevic. Nordic eMarketing was lucky enough to get an invitation to fly over and speak about the topic of search marketing with focus on the region the conference is held at.
With guests in the close to 100 guest including the Serbian Minster of Telecommunications who opened the conference there we good speakers from both local companies and International companies like Nokia and Nordic eMarketing. This is a conference that will be worth noting in the future and should help the Serbians enter the world of Internet marketing. With around 7.4 million inhabitants only 3.3 million are Internet users, Serbia still has a long way to reach the likes of the UK, Denmark, Norway or Iceland. But still is doing much better than many of their neighbouring countries.
