Aussies! Join Me at MarketingNow Conference in Melbourne [Now FREE]

If you’re in Melbourne Australia (or can get here) on 22-23 September you should check out the Marketing Now conference. I’ve mentioned it previously but since doing so there have been some changes.

Previously this conference was $1000+ to attend – the organizers were going to donate the profits to charity. However they’ve rethought things and have decided to go with a new approach. It’s now FREE – on the condition that you make a $100 donation to charity.

The speaker list is pretty cool and the agenda is one that I think many will find useful.

I think it’s going to be a great couple of days and am really looking forward to being a part of it. I’m also excited that it’s now much more accessible pricing wise and that from what I can see on Twitter the numbers are going to be quite large as a result.

I also think that it’s great that this conference is all about raising money for charity – I’m donating my time to speak and am excited to see the local blogosphere and social media networks joining together to make a difference – whilst also learning from one another.

I hope you can join me!

    Hey Darren,

    I wish I could make it there. I’ve been busting my tail to follow your awesome advice to create a kick ass blog. Unfortunately, Aus is a little far for me to go right now.

    But how about a site review? Have a look and tell me whether I’m getting it or not!

    I’d love to hear from all the other Pro Bloggers here too.

    Please tell me what I’m doing right and what I am certainly still doing wrong too.

    All the best and thanks again,

    Gday Darren,

    Do you need to donate before you attend to book your seat or is it first come, first serve and donating on the day?

    Cheers Thomas

    I’ve booked – am so excited to be able to go! :-) I’m also going to a social media masterclass with DM Scott next week so its going to be a really busy month!

    I think its a fantastic opportunity and will have to break the budget so i can get a copy of trust agents now :)

  8. I think I can find the time to attend this one – seems there’s enough topics in the programme to keep it interesting (plus networking opps).

    See you there. Go Pies!

  12. Hello Darren,

    What a wonderful and extremely generous offer.

    I have just registered and looking forward to this opportunity to learn from you and this great group of professionals.

    A credit to all of you to donate your time to charity.

    Best wishes


  13. Unfortunately I’m far far away from you.T_T

  14. Dean Saliba says:

    I think having it for free and asking for a $100 donation to charity will get a lot more people through the door.

  15. Awesome, I didn’t know this was on. I’ll still be in Melbourne then, might have to drop in and say G’day.


  16. Lynn Terry says:

    I’ve found a great flight to make the trip, and just may make it over for this one. I was looking for another excuse to visit your beautiful country!

    Darren, I won’t be able to attend the conference ’cause I live in Spain with my aussie wife. You have a lot of fans around here. You should come here to spread your knowledge…

  18. rajput says:

    Many of your reader will not be able to joint you. I will like to suggesting you to do some virtual web conference..

  19. Great post, keep up good work. I know a few people who would be thrilled to blog with some real people. I will definately try to attend this Conference also I would like to know what is the main agenda of this forum….

  21. When you start earning online, you could choose Google Adsense but when time goes on, you could use other programs.

  22. Very good idea on the price drops, it helps people stay in the game and being able to attend and it stills play it’s role by giving back to charity. Great move.
