This week’s guest blog post is written by Ted Karczewski. Ted is the Marketing Content Specialist at Skyword and the Managing Editor of the Content Standard.
It’s that time of year again, where content marketers far and wide head to the airport to board a plane for Content Marketing World in Cleveland, Ohio.
I know what you’re asking yourself – “Why Cleveland?” I was the same way before I went to my first conference there, and I can honestly tell you, the hype around CMWorld is real.
But you’ve already heard about the great speakers attending the conference (Kevin Spacey and Ann Handley? OMG!), the love of Rock ‘N Roll in the city, and how Skyword constantly brings the party each and every year. You’ve heard that, right?
Well in case you haven’t, here’s fair warning:
Skyword, a leading content marketing platform and services provider, will host the Content Marketing World kick-off party for the fourth year in a row on September 8th, from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
This year, we’re hosting a pub crawl in the Ohio City neighborhood and launching an exclusive take over of three of the most popular pubs in the area: Great Lakes Brewing Company, Market Garden, and Bier Markt. Join us during the crawl at Market Square Park to hydrate and talk to some of the folks at Skyword.
Skyword has organized an open bar at each location complete with our own signature drink menu. Want a free drink? Of course you do. The Skyword team will be stacked with free drink tickets so don’t be shy and come meet us! Not to mention, we’re your designated driver for the event, providing you free transportation to and from the area throughout the night.
We’ll also be giving away some swag and prizes, organizing an on-site game and activities, so stay tuned for details! Lucky winners will be picked at random at the end of the night. Oh, and we have a few surprises to show off, so expect something brand new from Skyword at this year’s kick-off party at Content Marketing World.
But if the kick-off party doesn’t convince you, then consider how content marketing has continued to grow and mature over the past year.
Leading brands like MasterCard, New Balance, and Western Digital have made significant investments in original content creation, and their audiences are embracing this change.
As a content marketer, you want to learn how others are succeeding in search and social, and Content Marketing World 2014 is the only place you’ll be able to get the level of advice and insight you crave. The kick-off party is where you’ll make those lasting first impressions.
Best of all, we’ll be there the entire time to answer any questions you have. Think of Skyword as your conference buddy – you’ll never have to sit awkwardly at a lunch table again. Just come find a Skyword team member, and we’ll be happy to show you around.
Hope to see you there!
