Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 18, 2005
Microsoft blog evangelist Robert Scoble will be a featured speaker at the 2005 "Business Blogging 101" seminar, which will take place Saturday October 29 at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle, WA. Scoble – who is often referred to as Microsoft's "Chief Blogging Officer" – will give a talk outlining the key business advantages that blogs offer over traditional Web sites, and instruct conference participants on how to get started with this exciting new communications platform.
Scoble is no stranger to the instant, dramatic buzz that blogging creates for a company. His own blog - entitled Scobleizer - began in 2000 and boasts over 20,000 daily readers. It covers issues relating to Microsoft, tech news, and whatever else is on his mind. "We are extremely pleased that Robert has accepted our invitation," said Steve Broback, Blog Business Summit Co-Founder and host of the event. "He's a pioneer in the blogging community and understands firsthand how to translate blogging into a connection with customers and markets."
The event, which is the first of its kind in Seattle, will teach participants to leverage the blogging platform to increase sales, create emotional connections and enhance their existing marketing and public relations efforts. They will also learn the practical skills necessary to set up and maintain their own business blogs. "If you come to this seminar with a laptop, you will be blogging successfully when you leave," says Broback.
Other speakers at the day-long event will be Molly E. Holzchlag, widely recognized as one of the most influential women on the Web, and successful Web entrepreneur and ActiveWords CEO, Buzz Bruggeman.
