What Really Happened in the GDI SEO Training Camp 2014
by Fervil Von
Whoooooooooooah. The experience is unfathomable. The food was great. The venue was cool and very relaxing and the audience and set of speakers had overflowing ideas about SEO, online marketing and social media marketing. It was a great experience for all the participants who attended the event.
If I could rate it 10/10 and 10 is highest I’d say it’s 11!
Anyway, I wish to share you what we have learned in the GDI SEO Training Camp.

It’s not everyday that you will see 70 brilliant people roaming around you or standing at the corner. I took the opportunity to discuss with these SEOs and social media marketers. It was the perfect time to drink and learn lots of things on SEO, online marketing, strategies, campaigns, and social media. We actually had it extended over beer bottles in past 2am on the second day. lol.
At the seminar proper: I remember the scene in One Piece where this guy Bartolomeo is sooo obsessed with the Strawhat crew and Luffy. I had the same feeling after seeing and talking with the most renowned SEO’s in the Philippines.
Didn’t had any second thoughts to get a picture with them. 😛
And when I actually got a chance to eat, drink and chat with the SEO gurus, I was like (inside):
So if you’d ask me, “hey Fervil, is it worth to join events like the GDI training camp?” That’s a no-brainer question man, you SHOULD if you could! Never miss the opportunity to ask people about your SEO questions. I highly encourage everyone to attend seminars and events just like the GDI. The information you will get is just priceless.
One of the best part about seminars/training camps is getting connected with real people and building business relationships. 🙂
Bound For Home
Before I left Metro Manila, I had an awesome night session with Grant Merriel, Nimrod Flores and sir Gary Viray at BGC, Taguig. It was a GREAT experience to exchange ideas with these people. I cannot thank them enough because even with their hectic schedule, they really spent quality time sharing their thoughts on building businesses, online marketing and SEO. My stay in Metro Manila was totally worth it. I wish to get back in the metro to see these people again. Fingers crossed. 🙂
SEO in the Philippines is growing every year. I’m also excited to know what’s gonna come next. There’s a plan to have a GDI 2.0 next year which will be called PeepCon (still fluid but it will roll out). The goal of this event is to get people learn SEO at a very attainable budget. To keep you posted, I suggest you frequently visit GlenDemands.com. I guess this is all for now. 🙂
Cheers to you all,
