The 36th Annual AAN Convention in 2013 is hosted by the Miami New Times.

What exactly IS alternative newsmedia? The AAN prides itself on being a collection of news sources that focus on local culture and art, write in an informal and narrative style of journalism, and generally report on topics that are less likely to be covered by larger news providers. Think Washington City Paper, SF Weekly, and Miami New Times.

So if we are talking news, why is Search Influence going to be there? For one, Search Influence is helping to sponsor the event! More importantly, digital marketing is a large part online media, and many companies leverage digital media sources to advertise their services and connect to clients. Will’s session will highlight “20 Quick and Great Digital Revenue Ideas” that anyone can easily implement. Come learn more about how your business can better use online media from Will and fellow industry leaders Friday, July 12th from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m.
