Who Else is Going to SOBCon 2008?

SOBcon 2008

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:

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.

    I’d just like to say – when I first read this headline I thought it was a joke, mainly because my old friend Carter is fond of calling me a “lousy S.O.B.”

    Yet another conference that sounds great but I won’t be able to attend on account of budget constraints.

    Looking forward to meeting you at SOBCon. Missed you at BlogWorld, but enjoyed Liz’s presentation in your place. SOBCon 2008 will be my third blog conference. For those on a budget, sometimes you have to invest in yourself to get to the next level. I know Liz Strauss and I know that she’s going all out to make this the event of the year – just look at the line up + you get to mastermind while you’re there. See you in Chicago!

    Brian, I just submitted my registration to attend SOBCon and am looking forward to the event and meeting everyone.

    Easton, I’ll now be able to shake your hand and personally say thanks for the blog tips that you provided to me last year.
