The Takeaway

Conferences and events are what keep the marketing technology industry deeply connected to their digital marketers and entrepreneurs. They’re valuable growing experiences, whether the conference is virtual or live.

And even when live events get back to normal, don’t expect virtual conferences to leave so soon. Giving marketers a first-hand digital experience from home will become increasingly popular. With that in mind, get some insights from the Social Cast podcast, which recently discussed a crash course for virtual events.

If you want to dive deeper into digital marketing, check out the episode with Fernando Angulo, SEMrush Head of Communications, on how to track organic growth in the marketing world today or the interview with Rand Fishkin, CEO and co-founder of SparkToro, on how to focus your marketing for the long run.
