SES Chicago 2005 Notes

Online marketing information can change quickly This article is 15 years and 196 days old, and the facts and opinions contained in it may be out of date.

Fresh off a nice nap and night’s sleep, I’m feelin’ much fresher than when I woke up on the top of the luggage carousel at Chicago O’Hare at 4 a.m. Barring that last note, SES Chicago was a good time as has come to be expected. It’s always fun to meet new people in the industry, and see those familiar conference faces that are always ready to swap some secrets and stories over some spirits.

I was very excited to have the great opportunity to speak on two panels in Chicago including Developing Your SEM Niche, and My SEM Toolbox (which according to Brad should be the SEO Toolbox since there were no PPC tools). Thanks to all the folks who shared panels with me, especially Greg, Justin, and Bill for their assistance and encouragement.

I think both sessions went pretty well, and I’m getting (a little) more comfortable with the whole public speaking thing. I don’t remember who gets credit for (re)telling me the Seinfeld joke, but until recently it was probably true for me…
Surveys show that the #1 fear of Americans is public speaking. #2 is death. Death is #2. That means that at a funeral, the average American would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy. – Seinfeld
I’m probably one step closer to being prepared to give a eulogy rather than receive it.

    Hey Todd –

    I also attended the SES show this past week in Chicago and actually had an opportunity to sit in on your “My SEM Toolbox” session. Honestly I thought you and the rest of the panel did great. In fact I Bloged about the session if your interested in some feedback. You can check it out here: Thanks for helpful tool suggestions.

    Thanks for the kind words. As mentioned, it’s really growing on me. It’s definitely been “trial by fire” as I had no real experience prior.

    Glad you enjoyed the session!
