A few months ago I received an email asking me to speak at a conference (Underground Seminar) in Washington DC in March next year. It was a little different to most other speaking opportunities that I receive in that it wasn’t actually for a blogging specific conference – but instead for an internet marketing crowd.
I’ve always been intrigued by the internet marketing scene – actually I’ve had a love hate relationship with it and have wondered how blogs can intersect with it.
As a result, after doing a little checking into it’s organizer I accepted the offer to speak for a couple of reasons:
- I love talking about blogging – any opportunity to do so is something I’ll take up
- I am interested in interacting with Internet Marketers and to see what I can learn from them
- I was already planning a US trip in 2007 and this fits well timing wise
I’m not going to sell this conference hard here at ProBlogger as it does have a slightly different focus to ‘blogging for money’ but I do think that it’ll be something some of you will be interested in – so you can check it out at Underground Seminar (aff).
A little info on the Seminar:
- This is the third year that Yanik Silver has run the Underground Seminar. The last two sold out quickly and received great reviews.
- There’s 67 seats available at early bird discounted rates
- Yanik’s put together a list of speakers who are trying a variety of online entrepreneurial activities – ie it’s not just blogging but includes other successful internet entrepreneurs – Yanik’s added up the earnings of everyone speaking and collectively it was over $57M in the last 12 months. I feel like a small fry in this line up.
Having chatted to a couple of last year’s attendees and seeing a little video of the event I’m looking forward to being there.
Yanik is promoting me as ‘GoldBlogger’ – it’s a ‘spy’ theme.
Plenty more info at the Underground Seminar site. Yep – it’s a pretty long and hyped sales page but if you’re interested I’ll see you there! If it’s not your cup of tea – no worries at all. Just wanted to let people know the option.
