New Reasons to go to SOBCon

By Char

As if my 10 Reasons to go to SOBCon08 were not enough, the growing list of sponsors and speakers should convince you that if you are at all serious about business on the Internet – you need to be at SOBCon08.

First you need to see this video interview that Liz did with Jason Falls (who is a fabulous interviewer, by the way!):

Still not convinced? When you register, you will also receive:

  • a copy of ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett
  • 60 attendees will get free design and SEO consults from Network Solutions experts.
  • a $99 lifetime hosting offer from THC
  • a pro account at E-Junkie
  • a free subscription to Blogger & Podcaster Magazine and a chance to join their new USA Today guide
  • a professional video interview on you and your biz for BlogTV sponsored by Fuel My Blog

That is some serious value added schwag! And something tells me that’s not all there will be. I am pretty sure Liz and crew are still lining up some extras for their Biz School for Bloggers.

From the latest press release:

“This year, we’re calling it, Biz School for Bloggers, but it’s about all forms of Internet business and social media. The totally interactive format is focused on building an actionable plan that combines the solid thinking and models of business with the social culture and nuances of the Internet,” says Liz Strauss, the content creator. “Speakers present the most-successful “how-to” model in their field of Internet expertise. Then participants, working in 6-person mastermind teams, collaborate and apply that part of the model to their business. At the end of the day, each attendee has given their business a 360 degree.”

To me, if you are blogging for business or blogging as a business, you can not afford to miss this opportunity to interact, network, and learn from more than 200 of the most deeply networked, conversational business bloggers on the Internet.

I gotta “fabulous”! W00T! Thanks a ton. Can I interview you now? Seriously, thanks for the props. Glad my interview with Liz has made its way to EKS!


I’m new to using some of the methods described in the article. But that schwag makes me want to go to SOBCon.

I’ve really learned a lot from listening to podcasts so I would hope they cover podcasting in some depth. One I find particularly useful is Experiential Marketing Today


Jason – thanks for stopping by! Are you going to be at SOBCon? If so, I think you could put together some great event coverage and interviews.


Steven – I know that SOBCon is going to be a very valuable conference!
