SearchRPM’s Michael Ramirez Selected to be a Mentor at SXSW 2017

October 19, 2016

We’re psyched to announce SearchRPM’s Michael Ramirez was selected to be a mentor at SXSW 2017! Michael will be presenting mentor sessions on the three fundamentals of SEO that he uses every day to help clients improve their visibility in Google, Bing and Yahoo. If you plan to attend SXSW next year you’ll have the opportunity to meet with Michael one-on-one and learn how to create a strong foundation for solid SEO.

What is a SXSW Mentor?

SXSW is jam packed with events and panels that attract people from all industries. The amount of information that can be gained is astounding, but it isn’t always possible to get personalized advice when there are 100+ people in the audience.

In 2012 the SXSW directors decided to add a personal element to the conference. What they came up with was the Mentor Program. Instead of talking to dozens of people at once, mentors sit down with registered attendees for one-on-one discussions. For seven minutes an attendee can pick the brain of a highly reputable expert – like Michael!

All mentor applicants must submit a detailed proposal in order to be selected for the program. If the gang at SXSW thinks the hopeful mentor has valuable information to share they’re selected to participate in the conference.

This is the first year Michael will be presenting at SXSW, and he couldn’t be more excited to share his SEO knowledge with conference attendees.

About Michael’s SXSW 2017 Mentor Session

Anyone who’s familiar with SearchRPM knows our expertise lies in white hat SEO that’s based on traditional marketing best practices. Over the years the process of optimizing a website has evolved, but a few essentials still remain the same. With that in mind, Michael will be hosting a session called ‘The 3 Fundamental SEO Building Blocks’.

Working off of his 3-step approach to SEO, Michael will answer questions and explain how search optimization can work for your website. With so many factors at play, it’s easy for website owners to overlook or miss vital components that keep them from ranking higher in the search engines. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of SEO and actionable steps that can help you improve your search visibility.

The time block to talk with Michael is only 60 minutes long and each one-on-one is 7 minutes long. Be among the first to register and you can get SEO advice from one of the best in the business. If you don’t get one of the coveted spots let us know. Michael will be attending the conference and is looking forward to connecting with everyone who’s interested in upping their SEO game.

Hope to see you guys at SXSW next year!
