Join Me at Facebook Success Summit 2010

One of the excellent upcoming conferences that I’m speaking at is the Facebook Success Summit 2010. It’s run by Mike Stelzner of Social Media Examiner. I’ve been involved in Mike’s summits before and they are packed with information.

This conference is a live online conference (so there are no travel costs) that is packed with amazing speakers. All sessions are recorded so you don’t have to be on live calls to participate but can listen to those you miss later.

All up there are 22 experts sharing what they know about how to use Facebook to build their businesses. Speakers include:

  • Brian Solis
  • Mari Smith
  • Michael Stelzner
  • Justin Smith
  • Others from Intel, Xbox and Cisco

Topics are varied and cover everything from the ‘why’ of getting a business on Facebook through to many aspects of how to best do it effectively.

My own session (which I’ll be running with Mike Stelzner) is titled ‘Building Community with Facebook and Blogs’ and the description of the session is:

Are you looking to build a loyal community on Facebook? If so, look no further. In this session, Darren Rowse (founder of and Michael Stelzner (founder of reveal how Facebook has enabled them to build a loyal following of tens of thousands of Facebook fans who engage and promote their content and ideas. You’ll learn about the apps, widgets, and blog enhancements they use to keep their readers engaged.

The price for Facebook Success Summit goes up by $200 later this week (on the 22nd) so if you’re thinking of attending make sure you get in at the early bird rate today.

    $400 bucks for an online conference? Wow…even if I had the money and know the speakers are awesome, I’m not sure I’d want to pay that much. Seems like a hefty price for such an impersonal engagement.

    • Darren Rowse says:

      I get that on one hand Lori – however I pay more than that to attend conferences each year and also have to cover flights/hotel/food etc on top of it. I personally quite like the online conferences I’ve done because they’re much more time effective to ‘attend’. You do sacrifice some of the networking but in terms of content they can be great – particularly those who give you the recordings to use later on.

      In the end though – I guess it comes down to the topic/content/speakers and if they’re a fit for your needs. For an individual or business wanting to explore how to use Facebook to help their business this is one that people will want to consider if they have the resources to cover it.

    Sounds too good to miss. Anything that can help your FB marketing is a worthwhile investment.

    Thanks for sharing.
