Pubcon, the premier social media and optimization conference, is thrilled to feature Joanna Lord,vice president of growth marketing at social media search engine optimization (SEO) monitoring firm SEOmoz, during Pubcon New Orleans 2013 on April 22 – 25 at the New Orleans Convention Center.
Noted online marketer Lord — a highly-rated speaker at Pubcon and other conferences — handles SEOmoz’s paid search, Facebook and Twitter advertising, affiliate marketing, retargeting, conversion rate optimization (CRO), and analytics programs, and manages the firm’s customer satisfaction team.
During Pubcon New Orleans 2013 Lord will speak about pay-per-click (PPC) and CRO forecasting in a Tuesday session moderated by High Rankings chief executive Jill Whalen, which will also feature co-panelists Shawn Livengood, director of search marketing at Home Improvement Leads, and Ira Kates, account manager and Maxus team lead at Maxus Canada. Lord’s session will explore methods for creating successful online ads that get strong conversion rates, and how best to forecast results when using such techniques.
Lord will also be sharing her social media and conversion wisdom on an expert Wednesday panelwhen she takes the stage for one of Pubcon’s popular live interactive website review sessions, "Interactive Site Review: Focus on Conversion." An especially strong lineup for the site review session will see Lord joined by noted conversion innovator Tim Ash, chief executive at SiteTuners.com, Kate Oneill, founder and chief executive at [meta]marketer, and Khalid Saleh, president and co-Founder at Invesp.
Lord, who will be taking part in at least her ninth Pubcon event, sees Pubcon as a benchmark of sorts. “Pubcon Las Vegas 2012 was my seventh Pubcon,” Lord noted late last year. “Between Vegas, Austin, Dallas, and Hawaii I have literally wandered the U.S. to make sure I didn’t miss this show. There is something inexplicably special about this show. Because of Pubcon we have had secret jokes shared between thousands of friends, a face-to-face with Matt Cutts every year of our careers, we have had something to call ‘ours’ and something to compare every other show to,” Lord added.
Join Lord and a stellar lineup featuring a virtual who’s who of social media luminaries andinnovators for one of the year’s biggest new media events at Pubcon New Orleans 2013 takes over The Big Easy on April 22 – 25, with three enticing headline keynote speakers including Obama for America chief integration and innovation officer Michael Slaby, noted venture capitalist and founding partner at 500 Startups Dave McClure, and popular online entrepreneur and founder of digital culture company LockerGnome Chris Pirillo.
