This contest is now over. The winners are Anne and Rob! Congrats and I'll be contacting them shortly!
As many of you know, I have gone to several conferences over the years (and you've all seen the pictures). Now, this will be my third year going to Izeafest, and I want to see you there! Yes, you! If you don't come, you'll be missing:
- Speakers like Ted Murphy, Aaron Brazell, Arleen Anderson, Brett Bumeter, Brian Clark, Chris Brogan, Chris Heuer, David Binkowski, George Smith, Joseph Jaffe, Julia Roy, Lucretia Pruitt, Michael Gray, Rae Hoffman, Sarah Austin, Sarah Evans, Warren Whitlock, Wendy Piersall, and Zena Weist.
- Learning how to blog better at the sessions that are offered like developing your brand and traffic strategies.
- Awesome parties and food. (now this shouldn't be the only reason you go to a conference, but it sure is a good one!)
- Swag (need I say more?)
- A free ticket to Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens for Thursday night
- A free ticket to SeaWorld on Sunday
According to what I've been told, you need to pack flip-flops, sunscreen, a laptop (aff), and…oh yeah…your fanciest coconut top. Now, I've managed without the coconut top, so you may survive without it. That being said, do you want to go to this conference?
If so, it takes place on October 1 – 4, and I can help you get there! I am giving away 2 (aff) tickets (each ticket valued at $229) to the Izeafest conference. You will need to get your own hotel and airfare (I highly recommend Southwest and special rates are being given at Renaissance Hotel.) but I can hook you up to get in.
Here's what you need to do:
Leave a comment on this post. Look over my blog tell me something you learned like my kids ages for example. Also, I want to know why you want to win one of these tickets! You must do both for your entry to be valid.
