The Be Blogalicious ‘Build Your Own Empire’ Weekend 2015 Conference (Sep 10-12)is kicking off today in Baltimore, MD at the Marriott Waterfront. What is Be Blogalicious? Be Blogalicious is a conference – a movement if you will — to elevate multicultural voices in digital media (#bloggersgoplaces15). At Be Blogalicious, you will meet smart people, hear success stories, and discover what’s working in the tech ecosystem. You will also discuss ways to create smarter creative content, impactful web-based marketing, as well as new programs, people, and platforms that engage your audience and build relationships.
The Burton Wire‘s Nsenga K. Burton, Ph.D. (@Ntellectual) will be at the conference as a Toyota Help Desk Ambassador, offering advice and expertise on various topics, most notably Search Engine Optimization (SEO). With nearly twenty years of experience in the tech and online media space, Dr. Burton will help entrepreneurs make incremental modifications (sometimes with the use of SEO audit services) to parts of their website that will have a noticeable impact on the site’s user experience and performance in organic search results. Why is this important? Site traffic and monetization i.e. coinagem. Many services exist, such as Gotch SEO, to help website owners improve their SEO, but if you’re running a site these days it’s important to have a solid understanding of the principles so you can optimize your content. A lot of the time when people get a web design company in to set things up for them, they don’t get involved and learn about all the background work that goes into it – this can mean that if they wanted to make changes further down the line, they wouldn’t be sure how to go about it.
Check out Nsenga at the Toyota Help Desk on Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Other topics that will be covered by other experts include branding, creating killer content and finding solutions to common tech problems.
