I attended the China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) conference which brings together 130 innovators from China and Australia. I was sponsored to attend the conference as the lead delegate for the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
One of the days at the conference was set aside as an UnConference where the participants got to speak and teach the other attendees. This session was facilitated by PeerAcademy. I was asked by the CAMP organisers to give 3 talks, with 2 of them being an introduction to online marketing. I gave a talk on the topic which I thought be of most help to the other delegates:
“How to get traffic to your website and convert visitors”.
Here’s the video of the talk on YouTube and the slides below

Lately I’ve been suffering from content marketing overload. Content marketing is the new spam. The worst offenders are the ones doing email automation that send you emails every week. There’s only so many ebooks, blog posts, videos, podcasts that I can consume.
