Enjoy the Share16 testimonial videos to gain insights from current customers and learn more about SEO maturity. Use them in your own company to help grow SEO maturity and secure more resources for the largest channel.

Every year at the Share conference, the BrightEdge community comes together to exchange ideas and learn more about SEO and digital marketing as a whole for an information-packed three days.

There are countless conferences that take place across the country every year, but Share is unique in its ability to bring together a group of some of the best digital marketers in the industry to learn about elevating SEO strategy and practices within their own organizations. Brands exchange ideas based upon their own experience with the BrightEdge platform and walk away feeling more equipped and ready to mature the digital marketing process in their business.

Throughout the conference, we had the chance to sit down and speak with a number of different customers. These videos are now live and we wanted to bring them to the attention of our audience. The conversations we had with these customers were informative and insightful, and we hope you will like them as well.
