If you didn’t make it to our inaugural marketing conference, or even if you did and want to relieve all the excitement, read on to find out what went on at our one-day digital-marketing extravaganza!
What is Seerfest?
No, it’s not a festival of all things Seer, but it is a gathering of some of our closest friends, colleagues, and experts dropping knowledge on some of our favorite topics like SEO, PPC, Analytics, automation, content marketing, and more! And because we’re big advocates for the fact that marketing isn’t about search engines, it’s about people, our conference-style event focused on the people behind the search.
Luckily, the weather cooperated and we were able to take some of our event outside. We enjoyed lunch in the summer sun and our two keynote speakers took the stage in “The Hub,” our outdoor communal space in the middle of our live-work space known as Idea1.
Does this look like a cool place to work? Trust me it is. P.S. we’re hiring!
Since we were able to host our event at our San Diego headquarters, we saved on venue costs and were able to donate 99% of ticket sales to Think Dignity, a non-profit focused on homelessness in our East Village neighborhood.
But Why Stop There?!
In addition to the money our speakers and attendees raised for Think Dignity, each of our guest speakers got to participate on behalf of a charity of their choice.
- 175 attendees
- 18 speakers
- $ 15,000 raised for Think Dignity
- 0 sunburns
- 400 craft beers consumed
- Countless laughs and connections made
What Else Did We Do?
So besides raising money for important causes and having fun in the sun, what else happened at Seerfest?
Check out our speaker list below to see the masterminds who graced the stage and the topics they discussed.
We Couldn’t Have Done it Alone
While Seerfest was a ton of fun and a resounding success, an event like this doesn’t happen without lots of help. Special thanks to all of our attendees, speakers, volunteers, and our coordinator and emcee.
