SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- BrightEdge, the essential content marketing platform, is hosting its fourth annual premier industry conference, Share14. At the August 20-22 San Francisco event, content marketing and organic search leaders from today's leading global brands will present the latest trends, insights, and best practices transforming modern marketing. Digital marketing leaders from major brands lead every single session at Share14. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from and network with top brands, such as YouTube, 3M, Macy's, and NBC Universal, and discover their secrets to driving unprecedented content and search marketing success.

"Share14 is the must-attend event for content and search marketers," said Jim Yu, BrightEdge CEO and Co-founder. "At Share14 we're bringing together the most innovative search and content marketing thought leaders and practitioners to share their knowledge and spur meaningful discussions on how marketers can drive real business results."

Share14's speaker line-up includes a closing keynote by Stephen Dubner, co-author of the internationally bestselling and award-winning 2005 book, Freakonomics, and its wildly popular successors, Superfreakonomics and Think Like a Freak. Dubner, an award-winning author, journalist, and media personality, will speak on how marketers can -- and should -- "think like a freak" in order to increase productivity, rationality, and creativity.

Dubner will be joined on stage by other marketing experts, like Google's Darren Pleasance, head of Customer Acquisitions, who will share Google's online marketing tactics and how marketers can apply those practices in their own business.
