Convince your boss to send you to UnGagged
Work can be an uphill struggle. Justifying expenses, maintaining software subscriptions, keeping your food safe in the communal fridge – you don’t get anything in this world without fighting for it. So we understand that it’s hard to convince your boss to spend money on conference tickets, flights and hotels. The trick is getting them to see how it’ll benefit them, then you’re golden – so why not let us do that for you?
You can thank us later, preferably over a beer, in Caesar’s, some time between the 4th and 7th of November.
There’s always something new to learn in digital marketing
No matter what people may try to tell you, SEO and digital marketing are not dead. Technology is always evolving and changing, so of course approaches and techniques will be adapting too – that’s part of why we love it, right? UnGagged is where you can hear the newest ideas from people who are pushing the boundaries of digital marketing every day.
Sure, you could go to a cheap or free conference, with thousands of other attendees, and hear the same old stuff again and again. Or, you can be among only a few hundred attendees and get the gold that speakers don’t want to share with every person in the industry. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
UnGagged has an excellent ROI
Speaking of paying for things, let’s talk ROI. Bosses love three-letter acronyms, and ROI might just be their favourite. When you convince your boss to send you to UnGagged, they will be spending money on your ticket and paying for your transport and accommodation (unless you live in Caesar’s Palace, in which case, kudos – what’s your secret?) and they have to consider the fact that you’re going to be out of the office for a few days, too. So what is the return on their financial and time investments?
Actionable advice. UnGagged is the only conference where you will get ideas you can actually put into practice and make real money from. In comparison to the initial outlays required for marketing campaigns and projects, the cost of attending UnGagged is small. And yet you’re going to be presented with a whole load of profitable ideas you can take straight back to the office and start implementing. That’s going to make you popular with your boss.
Networking with UnGagged speakers and attendees
The concept of “networking” has a bit of a reputation – it sounds like such a cliché and people think it’s awkward as hell, but it’s actually a valuable thing to do and it doesn’t have to be painful.
One of the great things about UnGagged is the access you have to the speakers. At the huge conferences, speakers have a tendency to disappear as soon as their slot is over. And if they don’t, you’ve got to fight hundreds of people to get anywhere near them. That just isn’t the case at UnGagged. Our speakers hang around for coffee, lunch, drinks and dinner, and they are all delighted to answer questions, share slides and generally chat about stuff. There’s no video recording at UnGagged, so if you want someone’s deck, dive in and ask – it’s the perfect conversation opener and you never know who you might befriend.
On the flip-side, there’s always room to market your business’ service or product to the attendees. Networking isn’t just an opportunity to connect with people who can help you, it’s also a chance for you to find new customers, clients and colleagues. Buying a ticket to UnGagged gives you the opportunity to talk up your company and your boss is going to love that.
Get a fresh perspective
There are so many benefits to getting out from behind your computer and spending time with other digital marketers. When you get bogged down with your day-to-day and the projects you’re working on, it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. By coming to UnGagged, you’ll rub shoulders with some of the industry’s finest minds (both speakers and attendees). Talk with other attendees about the things you’re working on and you might find an answer you didn’t even know you needed.
If none of that works throw in some buzzwords like ‘value for money’, ‘synergy’ and ‘diversification’. Bosses love that stuff.
No matter what, you’ve got to get yourself to UnGagged Las Vegas 2018, it’s going to kick-ass.
