First speaking engagement

Volkan Kaya @volkandkaya

My goal was to do talks such as this at a much later stage, but the opportunity presented itself and I decided to go for it.

On 23rd Sept I was sent an email and was asked to help promote a virtual SaaS web summit.

This chance only came because I had previously built https://saaspages.xyz/ which by luck and a little planning got to #1 daily and weekly on Product Hunt.

The email asked if I could add a little promotion inside the weekly newsletter. This sounded good however SaaS Pages visitors subscribed to the newsletter specifically for landing page advice and there wasn't any landing page talks.

When I looked at the list of speakers they had talks from CEOs from WP Engine, Wistia and Profitwell. All names most people in the SaaS world have heard of and respect.

However I decided to ask if it was possible to do a talk, I had learnt so much in the past 9 months building a SaaS landing page product, building SaaS Pages and also helping 100s of people on IH with their landing pages.

They said yes :)

So currently i'm writing a talk on "How to Improve Landing Page Conversions"

https://www.saaswebsummit.com/talks/how-to-improve-landing-page-conversions/ is the link if you want to learn how to improve your landing page.

There are many other great talks as well.
