Content marketing has been proven to be one of the most effective and least expensive means of getting attention to your brand. From blog posts to social media, there’s no reason not to get on the content train. But without interesting bylines, you won’t be able to get anyone to click on your posts. Fortunately, one panel can give you all the information you need to maneuver through the landscape of new media. And we need you to vote for it.

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a world-renowned conference with movies, music and tech innovations abound. You’ll find some of the brightest minds in Austin, Texas looking to be part of this momentous occasion. While many people go to catch a glimpse of a celebrity or take in a show, Tech.Co and a panel of media industry experts will be there to impart some of our wisdom about the best way to attract readers to your blog with killer bylines.

Our panel has some of the best minds in the business to discuss the “Landing the Ultimate Byline” and you won’t want to miss out. Check out their bios below and make sure to vote!
