AWeber Presents ASCEND 2014 Digital Marketing Summit
(Summit to Commence on October 22-24, 2014)

 

Chalfont, Pa. May 8, 2014 – AWeber, the global email marketing software company, has announced it’s first-ever, two day educational conference, ASCEND 2014 Digital Marketing Summit. ASCEND was developed to be an exchange of ideas, information, strategies and success stories designed to elevate your business to the next level.

ASCEND will focus on delivering digital marketing tactics, strategies and best practices in an effort to help participants increase sales and profits. The conference will cover a range of topics including: email marketing, content creation, social media, SEO, conversion optimization and buyer psychology.

“ASCEND was created with businesses, entrepreneurs and bloggers in mind because starting and running your own business is like scaling a mountain,” said AWeber’s CMO, Erik Harbison. “The path to success is long, tiring and filled with unexpected obstacles. Not everyone makes it, but for those who reach the top, the gratification is worth the struggle.”

Through this conference, AWeber plans to help attendees reach their goals, communicate with their customers and pursue their passions. “AWeber will help them ASCEND to the top of their own personal mountain in 2014 and beyond,” said Harbison.
