Creating a Successful Online Content Business
Wednesday May 9
Elise Bauer, President and Grand Poo-Bah of Simply Recipes, started the company as a hobby--a blog about her family's kitchen recipes. Simply Recipes, which is monetized primarily with advertising, has grown to be tops in Google Search Rankings. (Try typing in "Roast Turkey" into Google for example. Simply Recipes will turn up in the top ten, despite competition from some of the largest publishers in the world). Elise will discuss how Simply Recipes develops content, attracts readers and interacts with other players in the recipe ecosystem.
I look forward to seeing you then!
