It’s been over five years since I first hit up The Art of Marketing. My life was far different back then—with no kids, a fledgling blog, and my experience with “marketing” limited to how I saw my newfound friends carry themselves on Twitter, I was doe-eyed and utterly unaware of the depth there is to the marketing world… the people I met and the things I learned would prove formative in sharing the #BloggerLife I built for myself, with lessons that I still use today, and ones still relevant that I’ve yet to implement!

But that was five years ago.

In an industry that ages at a dog’s pace, I’ve learned many lessons since, and while I don’t hold any credentials in marketing from any post-secondary institutions (if you must know, my background’s in economics, math and stats bundled into a Business degree from York University), I know much more about the game today than I did when the decade started.

In the nearly 2000 days since my first The Art of Marketing, I’ve read a lot of books, attended a swath of conferences, and exhausted a multitude of hours going from site to site, learning how to best hone my craft. The things I learned in 2011 were good for young Casey the blogger, and got me into analyzing my traffic, refining my stories, and figuring out what I brought to the table to continue becoming a better creator—but what would I learn today?

If you haven’t figured it out by this point in the post, you’re only fooling yourself, as it’s only when we refuse to stop adapting—refuse to stop growing—that we’ve nothing left to learn, because we refuse to let ourselves.

And that, my friends, is why what there’s left to learn from The Art of Marketing is everything.

“Marketing is no longer about the stuff you make, but the stories you tell.”

— Seth Godin

On Tuesday, June 14th, The Art of returns to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre once again with The Art of Marketing, a speaker series covering various aspects of the trade, with its Toronto 2016 edition headlined by Morgan Spurlock, the same man who shocked the world with his docudrama Super Size Me, illustrating the effects of fast food on our all-too-fragile human bodies. It’s the kind of series that attracts everyone from the new intern looking to wet their feet in their field to the C-suite executive, looking to the experts to keep abreast of the latest trends. It hasn’t failed me yet, and if you’re on the fence about going, I don’t think it’d fail you, either!

In fact, if this event is up your alley, get on it quick—the Early Bird pricing for tickets ends Friday, April 15th, where you can save $100 per pass. I mean, you can still buy tickets after, but I promise you’ll be kicking yourself! So keep those shins safe if I’m going to see you on June 14th and click the link to see everything that The Art of Marketing has to offer!

The Art of Marketing — An Investment in Taking Your Brand Places it’s Never Been Before!

The Art of Marketing—the place to go if you not only want to learn a thing or ten from those who add the walk to their talk, but also if you want to find other people in this fair city as serious about their marketing game as you are; so much so that they don’t see the ticket price as a cost, but instead the price of admission to network with like-minded individuals who could be the very thing they need to take their efforts to the next level!

In any case, I’ll be there on June 14th, notepad in hand as I see what Morgan Spurlock, Bethany Mota, Avinash Kaushik, Adam Garone and Stephen Shapiro have to tell me!

Hey, maybe we’ll even cross paths!

Until the next,
