On November 6th, our HootSuite Owls in London will be attending Inbound Marketing UK 2012. Sponsored by HootSuite, the 1-day conference is designed to help marketing professionals, business owners and agency executives deepen their knowledge of inbound marketing through a combination of inspiring keynote presentations, focused breakout sessions, and exciting networking activities.
In anticipation of the first Inbound event in the UK, HootSuite is pleased to present an interview with HootSuite’s newest Pro Solution Partner, Richard Strange, CEO of Strange PR. The inbound marketing agency is a Gold Sponsor for Inbound 2012 and will be speaking at the event.
HootSuite: Describe what you do.
Richard Strange: Strange PR is a specialist inbound marketing agency based in the United Kingdom. We help businesses grow using internet marketing, social media, content, blogging, content marketing, all-of-funnel lead nurturing, conversion and marketing automation and analytics.
HS: Tell us about some trends or challenges you’re seeing around social media in your industry.
RS: SEO is becoming increasingly important to PR as the influence of Google and other search engines grow. Content is key for SEO and strategic PR coverage can help drive social media sharing, which is important for page-rankings.
HS: What is your favorite HootSuite feature and why?
RS: We love the intuitiveness of HootSuite’s dashboard. We use hashtag monitoring on behalf of many of our clients and the HootSuite dashboard’s stream layout instantly allows us to demonstrate to our clients the social interest we are driving to their content.
HS: What are you most looking forward to at Inbound 2012?
RS: I am excited to see David Meerman Scott, who will be talking about marketing in real-time and the process of injecting your ideas into breaking news.
