SEO training tip: stop the projector screen when not using

At the latest edition of Lumea SEO PPC, Doru PANAITESCU said something similar to:

When you do a training, if you want to keep people’s attention focused on you, stop the projector screen; turn it black and focus people’s attention on you.

Cool tip! Simple & useful.

"AUDIO!" / "VIDEO!" / "PHOTO GALLERY" – this isn’t a good promotion strategy

Quite a few of the news web sites in Romania started adding “VIDEO” or “AUDIO” or PHOTO GALERY“. In my opinion, it’s a poor choice. It’s only addressing the emotional state – “like / love / hate”. It’s not cerebral, it’s not smart, intellectual or anything. Glamour & briz-briz & fantasies.

I want to visit a news web site to read news which is of intellectual interest to me. I don’t want tabloid-style news.

P.S.: Not my original idea, but I embrace it 100%.

What should you look for at a speaker for a confrence?

I used to look at two major things when analyzing a speaker at a conference:

  • Personal charisma / ability to convey a message;
  • The message itself.
But it’s more than this; most conferences also have a main theme, they focus on something; well, from that perspective, it’s best to see a speaker who:
  • Has done something great in his / her field;
I got this idea at Webstock 11; some speakers had no particular charisma, others lacked a very good message; but, still, they fitted well, due to their experiences; it was very appropriate to see a top performer in his/her field, even if the message and the “package” of the message was not that great.
