3 reasons digital marketers should attend AWeber’s Ascend Summit

Why AWeber's Brandyn Bissinger thinks you should be at next week's Ascend Summit.

Disclosure: This is a guest post by AWeber Public Relations Manager Brandyn Bissinger. is a media sponsor of Ascend Summit 2014, and this post is part of that relationship.

Email marketing is still a big deal. Despite the growth of a popular focus on social media marketing, email is still more personal, more direct and ultimately more valuable.

We’ve learned that first hand at AWeber, the Chalfont, Pa.-based email marketing service with more than 120,000 customers.

Now, we’re bringing that same spirit and expertise to ASCEND Summit 2014, a two-day digital marketing conference we’re hosting in Philadelphia. We’ll be covering a range of topics intended to help businesses create successful, results-driven digital marketing initiatives, including: email marketing, content creation, social media, SEO, conversion optimization and buyer psychology.

Ascend is specifically designed to be an exchange of ideas, information, strategies and success stories that will help you elevate your business to the next level. And good news, it’s all happening right in Center City Philadelphia next week, Oct. 22-24.

We’re excited to be including some of the best in the business: Ann Handley of Marketing Profs; Wil Reynolds of SEER Interactive; Marcus Sheridan, author of The Sales Lion; and many more.

Here’s what we expect attendees to take away from the conference.

  • Gain valuable knowledge: It’s hard to stay up to date with the latest digital media strategies and tactics when the industry seems to move faster than the speed of light. Attend ASCEND to fast track your knowledge and stay ahead of your competition.
  • Leverage the expertise of our speakers: Our 20+ speakers are some of the biggest movers and shakers in content and digital marketing. Top-of-the-industry professionals Ann Handley, Marcus Sheridan and Michael Brenner are bringing their best content to give you real, ideas that can be applied immediately.
  • Connect and network with like-minded colleagues: exchanging business cards doesn’t do anyone any good if you’re not making the right connections. Our attendees represent world-class organizations and they are as eager to learn and connect with you.

You’ll walk out of ASCEND fully “in the know” on the strategies and tactics our speakers used to build their own thriving businesses.

AWeber would like to extend a special discount to Philly readers. Use the ASCEND10 discount code for $70 off the ticket price.
