Digimarcon is happening in New York this May 9 at the New York Marriott Marquis. DigiMarCon Conferences presents the boldest and most thought-provoking speakers in the digital marketing industry, presenting emerging strategies, the latest innovative technologies, best practices and insights from successful digital marketing campaigns to participants. Whether it is building customer loyalty, driving sales, improving lead generation or increasing consumer engagement, the DigiMarCon Conference program was designed specifically to help participants grow their audience. Here are some of the sessions that caught our eye:
YouTube Subscribers – To Buy or not to Buy by Carl Morris
One of the most anticipated speaker making debut this year is Carl Morris, marketing director of AppSally, a growth marketplace. You can think of it as the fiverr for digital marketing only. The platform lets you buy everything from white-hat marketing to black-hat marketing. For example, you can buy real YouTube subscribers. The practise of buying subscribers may raise a lot of eyebrows but apparently it is common among YouTubers as there are many benefits. New YouTubers have been buying YouTube subscribers as a quick way to get off the ground in the highly competitive YouTube platform. YouTubers with less budget on the other hand may opt to exchange subscribers, a practise dubbed sub for sub. A little digging shows sub for sub being conducted on Facebook groups and Reddit (eg r/sub4sub).
Reddit Masterclass by Jose Peterson
Reddit is known to be a tough place for marketers due to the platforms’ strict community rules. Carl may try to convince you to buy upvotes as a quick way to get results from Reddit, but Jose is all old school about playing by the rules. In his masterclass, Jose covers the basics of Reddit, building your karma, getting Reddit upvotes, posting in the correct subreddit and some little tricks used by seasoned marketers on Reddits. Carl’s buying upvotes is about quick results, but Jose’s masterclass is a must have if you want to succeed in Reddit in the long term.
