This weekend I did a session at Think Visibility ( #thinkvisibility ), a mini-conference that brought together a great variety of people who’s lives touch the internet. From marketers to accessibility, geeks, seos and usability people.
All the talks I saw were brilliant and I heard the one’s I didn’t were too.
Who will ever forget Tim’s huge buckets of exploding juice?
I was surprised to discover that Chris Garrett, the blogging guru, is actually a real person and not an alien from the Planet Nice, he even has a northern accent! And he’s genuinely nice with it. I wonder why in my head he was so obviously Californian…
Peter Cooper riffed on Passion, Desire, Dating and Why Journeys are Important, Sales, Speed-Dating and the fact that he’s married. Lucky woman.
Dave Naylor, who I didn’t know as our very own SEO star ( I am celebrity blind ) gave a talk that had an element of jovial menace to it. The best kind of menace in my view. Something we need more of … round your way.
Tom C talked about how to do Reputation Management by taking skin-care seriously, changing sex, getting married and changing your name. He works with MPs you know, they really need this stuff.
Patrick Altoft gave a cool, calm and measured presentation about Supersonic Link Building, which was ironic.
Kieron, shared some of his ingenious ways to make money at Affiliate Marketing…
There are other people’s reviews of the event out there, including NorthSouthMedia, WebsiteDoctor, PoLR, AndrewBurnett, Linda Broughton and JamesWard’s (my own particular favourite review… ahem! which means I can put my hourly rate up a few pence).
I came away having perhaps drunk one too many, learned loads from the delegates, about more than just SEO, usability, marketing etc. And a notebook full of great ideas and approaches I’ll be using in the coming weeks.
I reckon Dom won’t have any bother selling tickets for the next Think Visibility, he now just needs to find a venue big enough for the coming demand. See you there!
