I’ve enjoyed working with Thomas Frey and the rest of the da Vinci Institute on various events, and am excited to be co-hosting the Blogger Boot Camp this Saturday – August 27th – just outside of metro Denver, Colorado.
Please keep reading for a special discount code and lots more information about the Blogger Boot Camp event…
First off, here’s the official shtick:
“Blogs are leveling the content playing field, enabling individuals to amass large online audiences�often times larger, and more vocal, than the online efforts made by well known media giants. By making it easy for anyone with a computer to publish their ideas, blogs are inviting unprecedented amounts of online interaction and knowledge sharing. For business professionals, they are an invaluable source of real-time information and commentary, as well as a tool for self-promotion. For companies, they can be a powerful tool for connecting with consumers.”
But if you’re reading this article, you already know all about blogs and how they’re changing the very face of business, reinventing corporate communications and streamlining everything from customer support to public relations.
I just got back from San Francisco, where I was privileged to co-chair the very successful Blog Business Summit. Is business blogging really important? Well, companies ranging from Intel, Fujitsu, Microsoft, Adobe, Boeing and General Motors were represented at the Summit, all trying to learn more about how to be smart and effective business bloggers.
Getting involved with the so-called blogosphere is important even if your company isn’t planning any sort of weblog, because other bloggers are already talking about your product, service and company and it’s imperative you know how to track the discussions and get involved.
Piqued your interest yet?
I’ll be giving attendees a whirlwind introduction to the world of blogs and blogging, including best practices, live demonstrations, and lots of anecdotes about life in the blogosphere. Also speaking at this Boot Camp will be Colorado blog superstars Andy O’Reilly, Stephen Green, Amy Gahran, and Thomas Frey.
I know, I sound like a late-night infomercial host, but it’s only because I’m really this enthused about the transformation that business blogs are bringing to business.
Oh yeah, and that discount code? Please use the special code blogsmart when you Register for Blogger Boot Camp. Just type it into the “Special Offer Code” box at the bottom of the form. It’ll save you a quick $25 on the registration, more than enough to pay for a nice lunch with us Colorado bloggers too!
Thomas and I are both looking forward to this event, because we both know how important business blogging and the blogosphere are to modern businesses who hope to remain relevant and competitive in the future.
Can you keep a secret? What we’ll talk about at the Boot Camp is even more important for entrepreneurs and hobbyist bloggers!
I’ll hope to see you there!
