With another successful SES New York in the books, the SES Conference & Expo is now gearing up to head north to Toronto from June 12-14. The SES Toronto agenda is live, and the SES team is still accepting speaker proposals until April 12.
The competition is quite fierce to be accepted as a speaker at SES events, but SES strives to provide its attendees with the highest quality sessions and speakers, so it doesn't matter whether you're a first-time applicant or have spoken at SES events dozens of times already. Quality wins.
As an SES speaker, your goal is to help marketers and advertisers do their jobs better by:
- Educating attendees about the most current topics, strategies, tactics, and tools.
- Using real-world examples.
- Providing actionable takeaways.
SES Toronto will cover topics such as search engine optimization (SEO), paid search (PPC), social media, content marketing, local, web analytics, video, and much more.
Pitching to speak at any SES is straightforward. Make sure to fully read the Speaker Guidelines and then visit the SES Speaker Proposal Form and let the team know who you are, which session you'd like to speak about, and why they should pick you.
Your abstract is the real key to getting picked as a speaker. Use this area to let the SES organizers know what takeaways you'll provide attendees. As the image below illustrates, the SES team loves to see case studies, real-life examples, and unique content.
You're highly encouraged to include a link to a video of a previous speaking engagement in your submission. For some more tips on how to get picked, be sure to read some fantastic advice in "The Guide to Speaking at Search & Social Conferences".
Remember, your chance to speak at the leading search and social marketing conference expires next Friday, April 12. Those who are selected to speak will be notified via email.
Good luck! Hope to see you in Toronto!
