A couple of weeks I ago, I attended Australia’s largest and longest running blogging event, ProBlogger Training Event 2015. Held at the RACQ Royal Pines resort on the Gold Coast, the 2-day event brought together high profile international and local speakers, and over 700 bloggers, to discuss how to grow and monetise our blogs and businesses.
It was one of the most memorable, useful conferences I’ve ever been to. Based on my experience with this year’s ProBlogger experience, here’s why I’ll be attending the next Problogger Training Event. And the next…and the next…
Several weeks ago, I attended WordCamp Brisbane 2015, a 2-day conference about the WordPress platform. I decided at the outset that I would live tweet the entire event, and in all, smashed out over 200 tweets each day – or at least one tweet every two minutes during the sessions.
Live tweeting was exhausting as it was fun. Trying to capture and distill each speaker’s thoughts into 140 character sound bites (at speed), is tough! But I also discovered some unexpected benefits that make me want to live tweet at every conference I attend in future.
I have been following Copyblogger for many years. I admire the way founder Brian Clark started his simple blog about creating awesome online content in 2009, and built it into a multi-million dollar content marketing empire that now offers software, online training and a stack of amazing content.
Late last year, when I got an email announcing the Copyblogger Content Certification program via Copyblogger Authority, it took me all of about two days to decide to sign up. I had been looking at other online content marketing online courses and certifications, but I particularly liked this program because it provided hours of tutorials and required an assessment of my work by the Copyblogger team. No pressure!
Why are we still making corporate videos? This was, for me, a timely topic at the Networx April marketing meeting.
My team and I are in the process of updating our corporate videos, and it was fascinating to hear the latest thinking from industry experts.
I just bought tickets for WordCamp Brisbane 2015, a two-day love in for all things WordPress. I’m a teensy bit excited!
I’ve written previously about why I think it’s critical for marketers to blog. Here’s five reasons why I’ve signed up to spend an entire weekend in May at the fabulous QUT Cube, embracing my inner geek and all things blogging.
