Rand Fishkin will be one of our headlining speakers at our inaugural JumpCon Digital Sales Transformation Summit. The event is Thursday, October 24th, 2019 in Nashville “Music City” Tennessee.
Why JumpCon: The Sales Digital Transformation Summit
Why Rand Fishkin?
Rand Fishkin is an amazing human being and master marketer who is a world-famous Search Engine Optimization (SEO) craftsman. He co-founded Moz an SEO software company, has recently launched SparkToro an audience intelligence search engine, and just published Lost and Founder: A Painfully Honest Field Guide to the Startup World. The book covers his ups and downs in the startup world during the founding and growth of Moz. It’s extremely honest, filled with hard-earned advice, and has some great stories. I read it twice. Everyone who attends JumpCon will get a copy of his book and Rand will be signing a few books as a special treat.
Rand Fishkin is one of the reasons many SEO professionals (myself included) have careers. Rand created resources to help us learn SEO and digital marketing. Now many of us have grown from SEO practitioners into other roles like CEOs, founders, and CMOs, in my case. Rand promoted our craft and helped build SEO into the multi-billion dollar industry that it is today. Here are revenue numbers for a few companies that thrive in the SEO industry. Brands around the world now understand the business value of SEO as a channel and hire SEOs to help grow their business. We are honored to have Rand on stage at JumpCon 2019.
Getting to know Rand
We asked Rand Fishkin three questions to help you get to know him.
Here are his answers:
1. Name one special thing about you that is not in your bio? I’m a huge fan of theatre. Geraldine (my wife) and I got married in Ashland, Oregon, home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and we go back every year. We probably see a dozen or more shows each year!
2. What would you love to chat about with conference attendees other than sales and marketing? I’d love to chat about helping people build their businesses more broadly than just sales and marketing. I’m particularly passionate about alternatives to venture capital, and about helping founders who don’t fit traditional VC-style models.
3. Why speak at JumpCon when you could be anywhere in the world? Nashville, a new event, a unique crowd, and a company of folks who share my passions! How could I resist 🙂
