Search London – How to Create Award Winning Content

I am excited to announce the next Search London event in 2014 “How to Create Award Winning Content”

The UK search market is very competitive and it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. Therefore I wanted to ask two people who had won awards for their campaigns and blog how they were successful.

I have invited Mike Essex and Richard Kirk to speak at the next Search London meetup which takes place:

Location: The Warwick pub – 1 – 3 Warwick Street, London W1B 5LR
Date: Tuesday 1st of April
Time: From 6:30pm

We do not have sponsorship for this event but it is free to attend. Please register through Eventbrite.


Mike Essex – Online Marketing Manager at Koozai

Mike’s company Koozai won the Best UK Search Blog at the UK Search Awards in November 2013. Mike will be speaking about The Five Pitfalls That Hold Blogs Back

Far too many business blogs are done merely as an afterthought or are just treading water when they could be doing so much better. Mike will look at what those blogs could do to improve and the changes they made at Koozai to win Best Blog at the UK Search Awards.
