SANTA CLARA, CA – TiE Silicon Valley will host TiEcon 2009, the world’s largest conference for entrepreneurs, May 15-16, at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Position2 has been selected as the agency to help drive the strategy and execution of search and social media marketing campaigns to maximize the online visibility of TiEcon 2009.

Position2 aims to let the world know about TiEcon 2009’s ultimate stimulus package—an audience comprising every imaginable resource to fuel bold entrepreneurial dreams. Position 2 will leverage its expertise in PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SMM (Social Media Marketing)—the very same marketing techniques that are crucial to start-up companies—to publicize what’s in store at TiEcon 2009. “The hallmark of successful start-ups has always been clever, bootstrapped marketing,” said Niraj Swarup, Marketing Chair for TiEcon 2009.  “Today, entrepreneurs must deploy sophisticated search and social media marketing to realize their dreams and make their ventures successful.”  

“The whole world is spending more time online for a plethora of reasons, and the phenomenon of social networking is blurring personal and professional lines” said Rajiv Parikh, CEO, Position2, Inc.  To announce themselves, establish their brand, and attract potential employees, partners, funding and customers, start-ups have to execute a thoughtfully crafted strategy for the online world that goes well beyond a great web-site.

Rajiv Parikh elaborated on his agency’s goals for TiEcon: “I’m very excited that a sophisticated, tech-savvy group such as TiEcon 2009 has chosen Position2 to help drive its online presence and visibility. We are a fast-growing start-up ourselves, and so we’re passionate about TiEcon 2009’s mission. Our goal is to make sure clients like TiEcon can be found by entrepreneurs and investors—whether it is through a Google search or on a social network like LinkedIn.” “And we’re working behind the scenes to optimize the TiEcon 2009 web-site for search engines (SEO) and also looking at PPC paid search advertising campaigns.” Position2 is contributing to the efforts of TiEcon’s dedicated volunteer group which is passionately leveraging its personal and professional networks to maximize the social media presence for TiEcon 2009.

TiEcon 2009 is the 16th annual conference of the TiE entrepreneurship group. In addition to structured networking sessions and access to some of the world’s leading venture capitalists, conference attendees will hear from inspiring business leaders including Brad Smith, CEO, Intuit, Reid Hoffman, Founder, Chairman and CEO, LinkedIn, Hans Morris, President, Visa Inc, and Vivek Ranadive, CEO, TIBCO.
