Our essential objective with the PRO Training isn’t to profit (being completely TAGFEE; this year, we foresee the course to create under 4% of our gross with generally thin edges), yet to spread learning of SEO in a profound, important manner and meet a significant number of our locale individuals face to face. We additionally pay for our speakers’ transportation and inns so they don’t have the weight of pitching to recover travel costs.
Under 1/2 the Price of Other Events
With a PRO participation, the occasion costs just $649. Include an inn for 2 evenings and a departure from most US areas it’s still not exactly a solitary ticket to a significant number of the bigger meetings (for example the on location cost for Web 2.0 NYC or SES SF is $1,995).
No Vendors, Pitches, Booths or Sales
There’s no expo lobby, no patrons, no SWAG in a sack, no salesmen looking to finalize a negotiations at lunch, nothing. This occasion is tied in with gaining from specialists, organizing with friends and returning home with amazing, noteworthy data.
