Last week was the reboot of the MancSAS meetup that took place in I-COM’s offices on the 10th February. This meetup was the first in a new format, in that it had a larger collection of talks and lightning talks as well to get a broad range of speakers from all disciplines. I was one such speaker, and as well as speaking, I also scribbled together some notes. Here are my takeaways from the event


Michael Cropper from Contrado Digital – Justifying Your Digital Expertise

First up was Michael Cropper from Contrado Digital. In his talk he talked about basically justifying your digital expertise. Unfortunately the people who usually make decisions may not understand exactly what you do. This talk simply talked about how to justify your experience.


Daniel Morehead from CTI Digital – Making Short Work of the Longtail

The second speaker was Daniel Morehead from CTI Digital, in his talk, he talked about how to get the most out of the long tail to get an opportunity for your businesses. He listed some tools, and some dashboards to use for your search visibility on your site.


Jamal Atcha from I-COM – The Content Engagement Review Process

Next up was Jamal Atcha from I-COM, who gave a talk on how to improve Content Engagement. This was a fascinating talk that give insight into how content engagement issues were identified. It’s well worth checking out the dashboards and implementing them on your site, so be sure to check out the slides.


Ben Barker from FireCask – Search Operators: Navigating Google’s Index

Next up was my work colleague Ben Barker from FireCask. His talk looked at Search Operators, and ideas on how to get links and citations using Google. He also shared some interesting ideas on how to even use Google to recruit people. He goes in depth on the FireCask blog about this, so read it there.

Dawn Anderson from Move It Marketing – SEO as a Whole Brain T-Shaped Marketer

Dawn Anderson from Move It Marketing gave a talk on how to become a whole brain marketer, and also become T-Shaped: a broad understanding on a lot of things, and an in-depth understanding in one area. Dawn shared a wide range of tools so that techies can become more creative and creative types to become more technical. Again, another talk I recommend checking out.

Overall, this was a great return to form for MancSAS, and April is the next event. I urge all marketers to aim to attend, it was so useful. If you’re in and around Manchester, I urge you to attend. Subscribe to the group on Facebook to find out when the next event is.
