Last Saturday, October 29, 2011, I presented about Viral Content Marketing at Mastering Online Ranking Conference. MORCon is one of the most awaited yearly SEO conferences in the country, as several of the country’s top-gun SEOs unite to share their knowledge (and some of their secrets) about the online marketing industry to our small local community of Internet professionals.

I was lucky to be invited to present at this event and definitely fortunate to receive a lot of positive feedbacks about my presentation, given that it was my first ever speaking gig. My slides from MORCon are below, and I might also upload a video of my presentation (though it’s in Filipino) in the coming weeks. Any questions about the presentation, feel free to drop a comment below.

    I wish that I could be in one of these seminars or conferences where I can get more ideas for SEO marketing and Affiliate marketing. That will definitely help my small business a lot.

      Plus you can also network with like-minded people, which can extremely help your business out (through sharing of ideas, techniques and information). Thanks for dropping by Greg.

  2. Its great to see all young motivated faces! I wish I was 20-21 again!
    Great slides, link bait is working for me, for my clients and everyone who plans it well. Not every single work will go viral, however I made 5 link bait use up $1000 for one of my client and it gave me 50+ valued links (so far) and the best thing is its natural! $20 for one link (permanent) is also cheap right?

      Very well explained man! That’s the main point of investing on these types of materials, it can return priceless results :) compared to directly bought links (that are usually priced higher than what you have invested to create great content).

    Awesome stuff man. “Link Bait” seems to have lost its luster to a lot of people, although it should still be something you do from time to time. I think a lot of people took it on the surface and threw something together they thought was link bait – not realizing the actual process, research and development a good link bait campaign consists of. ~David Walker

      Awesome input David. Yeah, I strongly agree, it all really comes down to the processes that you have implemented to make the bait really happen or successful. Accidental link baits are good, but thoroughly planned link baits are greater.

    Wow! How I wish I could attend such kind of event too. I believe creating a viral content is the best way to promote one’s products and services. When you made a great content, you need not sell. Your material will do the selling for you. Remember that people only love to share helpful, intriguing, or interesting information.

    Hi,
    Since I stay in small tightly focused niches, I think your link bait presentation is excellent but overkill for what I do. I do some backlinking and articles and usually get first page. I think your plan is more for authority sites but I should try to do some viral marketing to drive more traffic.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Nice presentation my friend, i wish we had things like that where i come from. Contrary to what most people believe, backlinks are not everything, you need good content too! Take for example all those top 10 results you get sometimes when searching for something. They are nothing more than generic websites with no useful content whatsoever, and i can guarantee that the bounce rate on those websites is really high :).

    Hope people read this, thanks.

    Content it is the best way to promote yourself and without it you will not be able to do much. Link bait it is grate but I haven’t tried it to much until now. For sure I will try it and see how many links it can bring to me.

    Thanks for the nice slide.

    Thank you for the slides. Actually, until now, I only use my blogs to drive traffic to my websites, and I also use another blog to stay connected with my subscribers. It’s time for me to start a “real” blog so to speak.

    Great review! Looks like it was really interesting seminar. I agree that good content is more important than backlinks. In fact it is content that provides you with backlinks.

    Wow! Great content. I wish I could have seen you deliver this. Had a look through your presentation and there are some really nice ideas in there. Like the fact that partial matched anchor text links makes them more clickable – I’ll try that one! Content is still the king as far as Google is concerned.

    I work for a foreign IM company and creating viral content is just about the hardest task I’ve ever come across. Experts say a campaign has to be planned but quite honestly, there is no planning the reaction of people in general.

    If only there were not trouble during the MorCon event I should have been jamming with the participants.. Too bad, hopefully next year I might be able to attend 😀

  30. I wish, we had more of these kind of conferences in my place too and specially related to SEO , that would be a great way to learn new stuffs and get inspired. Although they have few blogging meetups once or twice a year in our place, I always end up missing them because of one reason or the other

  31. From the photos above, I can see that you had so much fun meeting and exchanging ideas with other Filipino SEO’s. At talagang may pic ka pa with Sir Benj, ha. Hopefully, I’ll be able to attend MORCon in 2012 :)

    You simply inspire me to do better as an SEO. If given a chance, I would like to be present on one conference and learn from your techniques. I’m sure you and everybody have had a good time on the presentation. Congrats and more power.

  33. I really enjoyed your slide presentation Jason. I like the Chrome broken link extension method too.

    Creating this type of link bait will never die. Not only is it useful to the web overall, but it’s an ethical and creative way to get your message there, in a way the spammers simply cannot. In the long run, this content will take on a life of it’s own and continue to bring in both actual visitors and an increase in ranking. This is much better than a short sighted link building approach.
