Georgia Tech Global Learning Center | September 15-16, 2020

Resonate 2020 is September 15-16, 2020, at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, GA!

We're pleased to be bringing a variety of speakers to Atlanta to help you build your business and network with other advanced sellers. Join us in Atlanta for an event that will change how you do business. Grab your seat before we sell out!

Who should attend?

Resonate was designed to be the premier conference for advanced Amazon sellers looking to take the next step in their business. Focused content starting where most other conferences end, come prepared with the basics and expect to learn strategies to assist toward exponential growth.

High Value Networking

With everyone in the room being an Amazon seller that is over $1M in sales, the level of conversation at Resonate allows you to explore where your business could go and what new goals you can set.

Exceptional Content

Every session is jam-packed with content that will have you taking notes, emailing your staff and rethinking about the way you do business. We challenge our speakers to bring their A-game.

Amazing Amenities

At Resonate everyone’s a VIP. From the opening cocktail party to the amazing lunches and snacks to the indulgent dinner, this show will make you feel like a VIP as we take care of every little detail.

What Makes Resonate Different?

The content at Resonate is created using the design thinking process. To take your business to the next level you need to work effectively and efficiently. Sellers looking to grow must understand what mindset they should be in at each stage, what skills they need to move from phase to phase and what tools they need to develop or supplement their skills. Our curriculum follows this process.

Tool Set

The mechanism you use to develop your skills and achieve your objectives.

Skillset

How you act and behave based on your capabilities, knowledge and understanding.

Mindset

How you see, perceive and view the world around you. How you interpret and respond to situations.

A Level of Content That Starts Where Other Shows End

We challenge our speakers to bring their A-Game. Our attendees are expecting to learn in ways they don’t at other shows. Most conferences need to direct their content to sellers at different parts of the learning cycle. At Resonate, we focus on those who already knows the basics and are looking for the next steps. If you don’t know the basics, we expect this conference will be over your head as we ask our speakers to assume you know the 101 and bring the upper-level information.

Bryant Garvin

Bryant has over 13 years of Digital Marketing & Ecommerce experience, and his keen insight on harnessing the power of paid advertising have seen him tagged #PPCDictator amongst the PPC chat community, and curiously #HoneyBadgerOfTheInterwebz, along with #PegasusWhisperer.

Most recently Bryant was dubbed the #ThePurpleWizard as he started and lead the advertising team at Purple that has helped garner over a Billion Video views in 2.5 years and many good nights of sleep provided to the masses.

He has worked in-house for Fortune 500 companies like Choice Hotels, as well as up and coming media companies like Purch. He also enjoys consulting for advertisers, including GreenDot, KuruFootwear, Rhone, Groove Rings, and more, where Bryant quietly insists on doing his own stunts.

Bryant is like the Bob Ross of advertising and conversion rate optimization. “Without the right messaging and design when a user gets to a landing page, you are essentially throwing money down the drain” he says. Just happy little conversions everywhere.

All of these things has caused several people to wonder quietly to themselves, “is Bryant Garvin actually Dr. Emmett Brown?”
