Taking the Failure Out of Success

The youth of today are key drivers of the commerce engine, and their enthusiasm and ability to adapt to new technologies, whilst finding new ways to socialise, work, shop and play, means there is no shortage of entrepreneurial flare readily harnessed to create a powerful network of brand ambassadors.

In this session, Harry Drnec, previously head of Red Bull UK and pioneer of their Student Brand Ambassador program, will be joined by John and Tom from Social Superstore to discuss how they are innovating the publisher model to educate and inspire young entrepreneurs. They will look in particular at what they define as entrepreneurship and how providing a cost free platform that enables successful entrepreneurs to engage in performance marketing of brands on a peer to peer basis is the next key step in social commerce.

Lessons in Link-Building and Good SEO

Just one Google penalty is enough to destroy years of progress in building a website and making sure it stays in line with the search engine’s rather unforgiving algorithm. Negative SEO is not something agencies, affiliates or any website manager can afford to entertain, but help is on the way.

Join Link Research Tools’ CEO Christoph C. Cemper for an all-encompassing lesson on the art of intelligent site building. His presentation will delve deep into SEO-boosting tactics while exposing some of the dos and don’ts of search optimisation. Those pencils will have to be sharpened as Christoph displays the key learnings from 1000s of recovered websites, garnered over ten years of successful link-building.

How Brand, Media and Retail Websites are Becoming Social Hubs
