Straight-talking SEO speaker at digital marketing conferences and corporate events

I have been working within the SEO and digital marketing industry since 2001. During that time, I have read thousands of articles, watched hundreds of webinars and attended loads of SEO conferences and events.

I speak at digital marketing conferences and corporate events around the world, installing a business development mindset towards search engine optimisation, ensuring marketers start to think outside the standard SEO bubble.

I don't just stand on stage talking through a bunch of slides. I educate, interact, and entertain the audience so they really listen to what I am saying.



I'm an SEO keynote speaker with a difference

I have spoken on stage at the side of some of the worlds top SEO experts at digital marketing conferences. I have also spoken alongside TV presenters, famous sports celebrities, and world-class professional business speakers at corporate events.

If you are looking for a respected person within the SEO and digital marketing industry, who is no stranger to receiving standing ovations, look no further.

What you get with Mark A Preston is an SEO speaker who is totally genuine, real, and who lives in the real world.

What does Mark A Preston (the SEO speaker) do?

I present information in such a way that it pings the lightbulb moment in the audience faces giving them the right mindset and knowledge they need, when it comes to driving leads and sales online through SEO and content, whilst sending the audience away with a list of key action points.

What are the key points of your speaker session?

Although I craft each talk so it totally relates to the audience and the impact the event/conference organiser needs to generate, there are similar key points from every one of my speaker sessions...

  • I give the audience the right mindset - If they are not thinking in the right way, they will never achieve what they need to achieve.

  • The audience starts to think about the 'why' - SEO and content is not just a tick box. The audience need to understand the purpose behind what they are doing.

  • I walk the audience through the SEO and content sales funnel.

  • The audience will learn what is really important to drive leads and sales for their business or the business they work for.

  • They will even receive a few action points to take away with them.

Like I said, I don't have a set structured talk I present to every audience as each audience are individual and as such my speaker session must be tailored to them or they just won't get the true value out of it.

What are the audience groups who will receive the greatest benefit from your talk?

Although I do speak in front of many audience groups, the below would be the key audiences that would receive the greatest value.

  • Small business owners

  • Marketing teams/individuals who work within a digital marketing agency

  • Individuals who are part of a marketing team within an organisation

  • Content writers / copywriters who need to make a real impact with what they write

  • SEO professionals who need to up-skill their knowledge

What makes Mark A Preston different to other SEO speakers?

Unlike some other speakers, I do not have set speaker rates. If I am speaking at a local marketing conference with 100 people in the audience, my SEO speaker fee is going to be vastly different than if I am speaking at an International corporate event in front of 1,500 people.
