    InboundCon 2014: An Illustrated Synopsis

    Last updated: October 16th, 2014

    It’s been nearly 1 month since Powered By Search hosted the second annual InboundCon event, Canada’s premier inbound marketing conference. I attended on behalf of e-commerce agency Le Site, to whom I brought back buckets of tips and tidbits to help elevate and innovate our online marketing strategies.

    The conference offered useful information on a variety of topics, ranging from Web design to content marketing and beyond. As a specialist in e-commerce communication strategies, 3 talks in particular stood out in my mind and delivered insights that I took back home and immediately began applying to my work. Although I strongly encourage you all to attend the next InboundCon event in person to get the full experience, I hope that my illustrated notes from these 3 talks will help to bring the experience to life for those who could not attend.
