Thank you to SEOMonitor for sponsoring our event. SEOmonitor managed to help hundreds of agencies differentiate and grow with its technology. It brought a better measuring methodology to the market, with meaningful metrics and optimized costs. The company took the next logical step to ensure that its users are making the most out of all the features and the large amounts of data: reinventing the user interface. It did that by creating a layer of technology that proactively analyzes all the collected data and translates it into byte-sized insights. Insights that can easily be scanned and acted on from a mobile screen.

The Founder and CEO Cosmin Negrescu‘s focus on helping SEO agencies differentiate and scale through technology comes from his previous venture, where he was trying to grow his own agency.

Cosmin will talk about Using “Jobs-to-be-done” to win more customers

The talk will be based around the “Milkshake Case Study”, which focused on McDonald’s need to increase the sales of their milkshakes. These techniques can be adopted by the SEO industry as well, whether you are an agency or a business looking to win clients faster.
