I’m heading to San Francisco next week to speak at the sold-out Elite Retreat, but I’ll be speaking at least one more time this year… at SOBCon 2008 in Chicago, May 2-4. I met SOBCon founder Liz Strauss at SXSW, and I’m really excited about how this event is shaping up.
I’ll be speaking about online business models that work at SOBCon, which is billed as “business school for bloggers.” This is part of what I’m also revealing at the $5,000-a-head Elite Retreat, so I’m hoping to deliver some solid value at a much lower price point.
And look who else is presenting:
- Anita Bruzzese on online reputation management
- Lorelle VanFossen on focusing your business to get noticed
- Chris Garrett on managing the editorial
- Muhammad Saleem on social networking portfolios
- Chris Brogan on social media choices that produce
- Dave Bullock on sales models that convert
- Liz Strauss on how to build an irresistible offer
- Wendy Piersall on success management
I wasn’t at SOBcon 2007, but here’s what my Teaching Sells partner Tony Clark had to say about it:
It’s fitting that a great blogging conference mimics a great blog…
- Stays on topic, but remains flexible
- Is informative, but friendly and welcoming
- Is a conversation, rather than a lecture
- Makes is hard to leave, but easy to want to come back
Sign up before April 1 and get an even better deal. Hope to see you there.
P.S. Check out Chris Brogan’s article from today entitled Social Media Starter Moves for Freelancers. It’s a good indication of the sort of useful advice we’ll be sharing at SOBCon 2008.
