BrightonSEO Slides – September 2017

In BrightonSEO, The Digital Marketing Blog by SeanLeave a Comment

Couldn’t make September’s BrightonSEO or just want to relive the day? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve begun to collate all of the slides from each of the speakers so that you can catch up on anything you missed. Again, we’ve added them in order of the schedule on the day itself to help you easily find the slides that you need.

You can also watch the video of the main stage from Authoritas here.

You’ll notice that we haven’t managed to collate all of the slides just yet but we’ll be adding to them each and every day! If you come across any slides that haven’t been included or you’d like to add yours, just send me a mail and I’ll pop them in.
