December 21, 2020 (Edgartown, MA): Search Marketing Expo – SMX – the world’s largest search engine marketing conference series, announced it’s 2021 North American schedule, which features six topic-specific events. All will be offered online and at affordable rates, making cutting-edge search marketing education accessible to professionals at companies of all sizes.
“The pandemic has profoundly changed how search marketing professionals will learn the latest SEO and PPC strategies and tactics. Getting that training won’t require hours of planning, a week out of the office and an investment of thousands of dollars,” said Chris Elwell, CEO of SMX producer Third Door Media, Inc. “The online editions of SMX we produced in 2020 proved the viability of providing an outstanding educational experience that’s interactive and measurable,” Elwell added.
The lineup features six unique, 100%-virtual training opportunities priced between $99 and $249 — each with its own focus and target audience:

All sessions are available for both live and on-demand viewing so attendees can balance their professional and personal lives with their commitment to continued training. Deep-dive workshops will be available during select events for an additional fee.
“SMX has always been about offering the best search marketing education for staying on top of this always evolving discipline,” said Henry Powderly, VP of content for Third Door Media. “With virtual events making it far easier for marketers to attend, we saw this as a great opportunity to offer more actionable intelligence to the community through targeted shows that go deep on concentrations like search analytics, content strategy, and code-based optimization.
“The pandemic economy has caused businesses to embrace the importance search in connecting with customers,” he said. “The Search Engine Land experts who program SMX see it as our mission to raise the skill set of all marketers who find themselves leaning on this essential channel.”
