Elmer's Next Speaking Event - Pubcon Austin
I'm happy to let the 2 or 3 of you who read about me here that I will be presenting at the next Pubcon event in Austin, Texas on February 21, 2018. My session will be "Entity Optimization" and I will present an updated version of the same deck I shared in Vegas last November. I've learned a few new things since November, and I'm glad to be able to share them.
I will also be moderating a session on Accelerated Mobile Pages in which Elena Legeros from Google will be presenting. This should also be an interesting session.

I've been following Gary Vaynerchuck online for several years now, but I hadn't yet read any of his books. It wasn't until I heard an interview with him by Chris Hogan on the EntreLeadership podcast about his newest book that I decided to give him a read. I'm glad I did.
The first part of Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook covers some basics of getting online and telling your story in a compelling way. The key, according to Vaynerchuck, is not to shout your "right hooks," or calls to action, over and over. Rather, he describes looking at the art of adding value to your customers over and over again without asking for anything.
