Thank you YoastCon

Last week the Jetpack team sponsored and attended YoastCon 2017 in Nijmegen. We had a fantastic time and we’d like to extend a big thank you to the Yoast team for a well-organized and diverse event.

We had some really insightful conversations with all kinds of WordPress pros, and we were overwhelmed by the interest in Jetpack and WooCommerce.

That interest may have had something to do with our Apple Watch giveaway! In case you missed the announcement at the event, the lucky winner was Marcel Bootsman from Nostromo. Marcel is a leading WordPress figure in the Netherlands so we’re doubly happy that he went home with the prize.

Apple Watch Winner

For everyone else who entered the contest, we also have something special for you. Make sure to check your inbox for an exclusive discount code.

Once again, huge thanks to Yoast and see you next time.

Apple Watch Giveaway at Yoastcon 2017

What is YoastCon?

YoastCon is a one-day conference focused on search engine optimization where you can get first-hand tips from world-class experts, ask questions about your own site, and improve your SEO copywriting skills.

Why is Jetpack a sponsor?

YoastCon is organized by Yoast, publishers of one of the biggest SEO plugins for WordPress. In their own words:

Yoast make[s] websites more usable, easier to navigate, faster and more reliable. In other words: we make websites work.

In other words, Yoast is in the business of helping make WordPress sites successful for their owners. Jetpack has a very similar mission and philosophy and aims to help WordPress site owners succeed with their sites by providing essential security and promotion tools as well as world-class support.

So, why wouldn’t we support and participate in an event that is so aligned with our objectives and gives us the opportunity to speak face-to-face with power users?

Got it. How do I get the Apple Watch?

Just visit our stand at YoastCon on the 2nd of November in Nijmegen to apply in person. We will announce the lucky winner by the end of the day.

We will be on hand to answer all your questions about Jetpack, our affiliate program, and all things WordPress.

If you’d like to schedule a specific time to meet up to discuss partnership or collaboration opportunities please email us before the event.

Why We Go To WordCamp

620 WordCamps. 67 cities. 48 countries. 6 continents.

Have you ever been to a WordCamp event? Curious about what it is?

WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web.

Passionate WordPress fans are everywhere. WordCamps happen all over the world and Jetpack sponsors every single one of them. We also attempt to visit as many WordCamps in person as possible!

Our #1 goal is to support the WordCamp effort worldwide. Here’s why we love supporting WordCamps.

WordCamps are an opportunity to bring WordPress community members together IRL.

The Internet is a wonderful place, but there’s still something to be said for bringing together people in person to network, connect and learn from one another. Not only are WordCamps a great way to meet new friends, it’s also a place to develop new business connections.

WordCamps are a great way for beginners and seasoned WordPress users to learn and grow.

A typical WordCamp event includes sessions on how to use WordPress more effectively,  plugin and theme development, advanced techniques, security and more. Lectures, panels and workshops dive deep into these topics for those looking to enhance their knowledge of WordPress.

WordCamps are a low-cost way for WordPress users to keep learning.

Unlike many other conferences or meet-ups, WordCamp works hard to keep costs low so everyone has an opportunity to benefit. Sponsorship helps make that happen.

WordCamps allow us to meet the Jetpack community in person.

Here at Jetpack, we love our passionate users. When we get out and about in the community at WordCamps all over the world, we get to meet YOU in person. We always have a table at WordCamps and send a few members of our team to listen to your questions, thoughts and feedback. Nothing makes us happier than hearing from our Jetpack community.

WordCamps help us to both improve Jetpack and spread the word about our product.

Whether someone uses Jetpack or not, when we meet WordPress users in person, we listen and gain feedback that gives us ideas and helps us improve Jetpack. This allows us to make an even bigger impact for those who use WordPress day in and day out. WordCamps also lets us spread the word about important tools like Protect, which benefit the entire WordPress community at large.
