We are pleased to announce our Keynote Speaker, Brian Rotsztein. Brian will kick off WordCamp Rochester with a presentation titled, “The Path to Success with WordPress: Business, Blogging and Community.”
About the Keynote Presentation
WordPress is software like no other. Every fourth website you encounter was built using it. Creative skills are mastered with it. Businesses harness its versatility. It has the power to bring together people from diverse backgrounds. Yet to so many, it’s “just” software. As a blogger, web designer, marketer, educator, and entrepreneur since long before its existence, I’ve watched it grow into a worldwide phenomenon. My own path to success is intertwined with a decade of WordPress use. Clearly, there’s more to this software than just a free install.
Over the last two decades, Brian has embraced being an entrepreneur, Internet marketing professional, consultant, author, speaker, web designer, and photographer. With an eye for creative visuals and understanding the consumer mindset, he helps businesses and organizations harness the power of the Internet. His most recent book, Content Marketing Ideas, is a complete and trusted guide to current tactics in online marketing. It has been highly praised by critics, including five star ratings on Amazon in the US, Canada, and the UK. He’s the head of well-established brands including Uniseo, a boutique online marketing agency, and Redstone Online Communications, a web design and online marketing specialty shop, where he brings a hype-free, seasoned approach to working with clients. He is also the editor of Citynet Magazine, a lifestyle, trends, food, style, pop culture, and travel review guide and blog based in Montreal. You may have caught his appearances on CTV News, or various radio shows and podcasts. He writes about content marketing, SEO, social media, business, and entrepreneurship, among other topics. His work has been used by USA Today, ABC News, Social Media Today, Search Engine Journal, and other prominent sources. He’s a Senior Editor at The WP Crowd and President of theCanadian Internet Marketing Association. Brian holds two Master’s degrees, has taught university courses, and provides training services on Internet marketing. He’s been using WordPress since 2005 (version 1.6!)
