Alright Raleigh SEO’ers, time for round two of the world’s greatest* networking event, Raleigh SEO, this time brought to you by Virante, Inc. For those of you who attended our previous event back in January, you know the drill, but for the rest of those out there who may be interested, let’s run through the info one more time.
What’s it all about?
Beer. Well, that and Search Marketing. The triangle houses some of the world’s best search engine optimizers, paid search gurus, social media mavericks, crack-shot dev teams and general marketing geniuses, so we figured it would make sense to invite them all under one roof for the free flow of knowledge, lubricated by the free flow of beer. Raleigh SEO began it’s roots under Ayima which decided to transport its success from downtown London to downtown Raleigh.
How much does it cost?
Nothing and the beer is free: totally free. Each event is sponsored by a different area business, spearheaded originally by Ayima and this time sponsored by Virante, Inc. Also, did we mention it was free?
Is the beer really free?
Yes. Beer (draught or bottled), wine by the glass and soft drinks for the DD. We do have a budget, but if we hit that, it will mean that this was the greatest event ever.
I don’t know you, am I welcome?
Absolutely. To be honest, most of the people we know are pretty boring, but they are going to come regardless, so we need new folks to show up to give some balance. Seriously, you don’t have to be a rock star to attend – the only qualification is your interest in Search. We do ask that you leave the non-Search folks behind, so we have you all to ourselves. Muhahahahahahaha. I mean, so that this keeps its tradition as a strong networking event.

Who’s Sponsoring this Event?
The second incarnation of Raleigh SEO will be sponsored by search marketing agency Virante, Inc. Not to be outdone by our friends over the pond, we will be covering the first 400 drinks or so this time around. Not that we encourage binge drinking; but hey, loose lips sink SERPs.
What do I do when I arrive?
Look for the folks in the Raleigh SEO T-Shirts. Give us a business card and we will give you a wristband, which will entitle you to a veritable oasis of beer and wine.
