I found out about PubCon in Las Vegas and at first thought that I wasn’t ready to attend such a grand event. But, why should I think that?? The site, clearly states:”Who should attend?
If you are involved in the production, marketing, or management of a internet web site – this is a must attend event.
Topic Areas To Be Addressed and Discussed:
* Search Engine Marketing, Optimization, Advertising, and Usage.
* Website Publishing. Technical grit as well as overall management.
* Website, domain, and Ecommerce site management.”
During the time of the convention I will be managing 3 websites (2 being E-Commerce)and overseeing the development. * This was an old post on my other blog, and since then I have obtained new clients!
I have really learned a lot just through eBooks alone, but of course I’m still a beginner. I work side by side now with a development company and they have taught me so much.
I might not write code for my websites, but I have A LOT to do with every little thing. It’s become something I have a real passion for and I want to absorb it all! What better way than by just jumping in. I really look forward to this convention being extremely educational as well as a way to meet people who are doing what I want to do.
At first I was a bit intimidated by going to something like this, but having the support of my employer and the drive to learn more has definitely made me very confident that it will be tremendous for me. Also, it will definitely prep me for my Certificate in Internet Marketing.
I’m very excited but also very nervous. This will be my first ever business trip and I will be going alone to Las Vegas for 4 nights! I’m not so much interested in the night life part of it (I know this sounds like a lie), but more interested in waking up by 7:30 to be able to attend all the speeches on topics like: Brand Management, Affiliate Strategies and Content Strategies, E-comerce and Shopping Cart Optimization, Word of Mouth Marketing, Press and Public Relation Campaigns, Travel Sites, and more…
I booked the Las Vegas Hilton which is a short walk from the Convention Center with hopes of networking with other people who are attending the convention.
My plans are not to drink or gamble but to mingle and learn. (* Well…. )I look at PubCon as a huge opportunity to learn and create.
I am really excited to go with my ever so talented friends at 10e20, Chris & Danielle Winfield. Chris will be speaking at the convention on the first day… So don’t miss him because he is so smart when it comes to SEO. He recently spoke at SMX and got amazing reviews. I have been lucky enough to receive great pointers from him when it comes to SEO and SMM.
I look forward to seeing everyone at Pubcon, networking, drinking and learning. If you will be attending, contact me! I will be staying at the Las Vegas Hilton, across from the Convention Center. Add me as a Facebook Friend!
