It’s been a while coming, but finally I’ve decided this year I will attend Blog World Expo in Las Vegas in October.
Darren Rowse managed to get me a spot on his problogger training day at the expo that he and co-author Chris Garrett are running on Thursday October 14th. I’ll be speaking at 4pm, very likely on the subject of blog monetization.
When traveling to the USA I like to visit my family in Toronto, and stop in Hawaii to keep my flights shorter and because it’s a lovely place to be. I may also visit New York and LA for fun and to meet up with some Internet marketing friends I’ve never met in person.
My close friend Alborz Fallah, who you may recall I interviewed back in 2007 when his Car Advice blog was first valued at over a million dollars, is also going to travel. However he had one condition before he agreed to come with me – he wants to teach a live workshop to share what he knows about building a multi-million dollar blog with you.
Alborz’s blog has continued to grow incredibly since the original interview three years ago. It’s now valued at…well let’s say multiple millions – MUCH more than it was, with over 10 staff, offices in Sydney, a board of directors, CEO and investors. It’s become a fully fledged business and it all began with him sitting at home, writing about cars by himself.
My own story of recently cracking the million dollar mark contrasts interestingly with Alborz’s as I have done it with a very different model, no employees or investors and much less traffic, though of course his blog is valued at much more than mine.
Together we have a very wide range of experience when it comes to building million dollar blogging empires, which we want to share with you in the form of a one day workshop.
Rather than guess what you want, I’ve created a survey that I’d appreciate you fill out if you are interested in attending our workshop in the USA.
I’m asking you to nominate your choice for preferred city to have the workshop, topic, cost and format.
Here is the link to the survey. There are only four multiple choice questions so it will take you about ten seconds to complete. Please click the link and then make your choices.
Once I have the data from you regarding what you want, Alborz and I will put together the details and create a registration form for people who want to attend to fill out. It will be strictly first come first served and we are planning to limit numbers to a very small group.
We plan to hold the workshop sometime in late October or early November.
I look forward to reading your survey responses and possibly meeting you at our workshop!
And learn how to build a better blog.
