InterPartners ran the SMX Expo Affiliate Competition from February to April, where affiliates had the chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to the SMX Expo Seattle which took place in June 2012.
Cooper9172 was the SMX Competition winner – he utilized every aspect of this promotion to accumulate points – publishing unique articles, tweeting, Facebook. His efforts paid off as he managed to refer new players and generate revenue which in turn led him to win this competition.
Here’s what cooper9172 had to say about his SMX Seattle experience!
As the winner of Inter Partners SMX Seattle competition, I traveled Thursday, June 31 from Copenhagen to Seattle with my good friend Erik Smith.
The destination was, of course, the Search Marketing Expo (SMX), but there was another area that we had to go first: The Salish Lodge & Spa (www.salishlodge.com). Just 30 minutes east of Seattle, the Salish Lodge & Spa is the quintessential Pacific Northwest retreat for those seeking an authentic and memorable escape from the everyday. The Salish Lodge aka “The Great Northern Hotel“, was used as the setting for “Twin Peaks”, the David Lynch TV mystery series. This hotel and the area are highly recommended!
After a restful night, good food and good beer, we hired a car and driver who drove us around the area where Twin Peaks was filmed. Great!
After the Twin Peaks ride we were dropped off in Seattle at the Westin Hotel. Lovely room on 43rd floor, overlooking Lake Union!
SMX Day 1
On the first day of the conference I attended three exciting and educational sessions.
- Perfecting Your PPC Landing Pages
- Hardcore SEO & Social Power Tools
- You & A with Matt Cutts, Distinguished Engineer, Google Inc
Day 1 ended with a reception, a few drinks and a networking party at the Seattle Aquarium.
SMX Day 2
On the second day I attended the following interesting sessions:
- Pagination & Canonicalization for the Pros
- Amazing Paid Search Tactics & Tools
- Ask The SEOs
Overall it was a very good and informative conference, and very different to iGaming.
Thank you InterPartners! I love to travel, especially when it’s free
