This year’s theme is acquisition. From acquiring traffic, customers, and brands, we’ll delve into the art of drawing more attention to your brand, winning more customers—not just ordinary ones—but those who’ll be repeat customers. Mind you, if it isn’t about these then it won’t be discussed here at Geek Out.”
Our tribe is real.
Our tribe is ready to connect.
Our tribe is always ready to go deep.
The reason our community keeps on growing? The always-learning culture and the #NoEgo mantra we believe in.
Geek Out Los Angeles will be anchored on our usual event playbook
Imagine inner circle high-level media buyers, marketers, and brand builders all under one roof; talking about real-life shit that’s important and relevant to all online businesses in this day and age. Make no mistake: You’ll network, party, and relax. We’ve optimized the event to allow you to cover everything you need to learn about—just how it should be.
No time limits set for speakers. This means they’ll be able to share as much as they want. But the quicker we get to the Question & Answer (Q&A) portion, the better. Because oftentimes, here’s where the real learning happens.
Only the smartest industry bigwigs we respect. We only invited some of the industry’s smartest and most impressive builders in our circle who we respect. Why? Because their perspectives and how they operate fascinate us the most. And we believe you’ll be, too.
It’s all up to you. Should you end up being unable to pick up a thing or two, then the fault’s no longer on us. If you ever find yourself ending up in a position where you feel what’s being discussed is of no value, then speak up. Let your ideas be heard. Bring up the topics you want to tackle; be selfish in a good way.
#Brainpicking. As we like to call the process, this lets you get that rare chance to (literally) get an inside and exclusive look at a speaker’s ad accounts. By doing so, you’ll get the opportunity to ask the hot-button questions, “Why?” “What happened here?” and “How did this happen?”
Transparency on all fronts. The speakers will even manage to open their accounts or Shopify stores right in front of you. This should let you see their processes and systems in place and give you an informative walkthrough about them. It doesn’t get any better than this.
It’s as transparent as it gets.
“A Closed mouth doesn’t get fed”
“Why did you do this?”
“What happened here?”
Decide what you want to ask.
Ask it to who you want.
Topics we can cover at any event
Media Buying Tactics
Long Form Ad Copy
Ad Creatives, Videos and Images
Amazon Selling and Tactics
Creative Research and Brand identity
Fulfillment and Logistics

Are you the guy behind the dials? Come rub elbows with the geeks.
If you’re the point person behind your business’ vision, then be with your fellow visionaries. It’s that simple: Let geeks hangout with other geeks.

Our name is our guarantee.
