What can you expect?

In selected cities we’re putting on one day blogging workshops. They are geared to advanced level bloggers who know there are things they could be doing better, faster, cheaper, smarter.

I love blogging conferences, but I think there’s a lot of emphasis put on short sessions that just don’t let you get to the meat of the issue. So we’re going to slightly alter the learning environment.

We’re limiting these events to 35 people in most venues. We’re only going to have one room AND the presenters are going to overlap and rotate so we’re never leaving a topic unanswered, but rather, are using one topic to move to another.

Who is a good fit for this workshop?

Bloggers who  have traffic to their websites, have been blogging for a while, are making a little money but are ready to take the next steps are the best fit for this program.

If you’ve tried Adsense, affiliate marketing, sponsored posts or membership sites as a monetization course, you’d be perfect for this class.

What I’d like to avoid are “first week bloggers”. If you just installed your blog for the first time, this is not the conference for you. Leave a comment and I can point you in the right direction, but here we’re not going to be addressing “what is a plugin” or any basic WordPress skill.

Where and When is the workshop?

We’re meeting from 10 – 5 on August 28th in the beautiful Denver, Colorado.

We’re holding the Denver event in an atypical place of sorts. In Atlanta it was the conference facility at a co-working space, and earlier in Nashville at a bed and breakfast.

But Id’ say we got really lucky when we came across the Smoky Hill Library near 470 in southeast Denver. Easy access, great parking, proven internet, great conference room AND a coffee shop on the premises. That means no parking fees, no need for 69 GPS led left turns and low stress. Perfect for learning.

Smoky Hill Library
5430 S Biscay Cir,
Centennial, CO 80015

Well, how much is it?

Registration for this event is $139 and includes lunch, Joel Comm’s new book “So What Do You Do?”, and 7 hours of awesomeness.

Registration fees are non-refundable but are transferable through August 15th. Once your registration has been received, we will send an invoice to complete your registration. (Your tax person will love that. I just hate putting vague emails in my tax folder).
