SOBCon08 Models Success in 360 Review Format: Internet MBA in 48 Hours

"If one evangelist can move a crowd, SOBCon08's influence just might rock the world," says Liz Strauss, the conference creator. "Our 2008 theme is Biz School for Bloggers, but it's about all forms of Internet business and social media." Exceedingly interactive, the format focuses on building an actionable plan that mixes solid thinking and business models with the social culture and nuances of the Internet.

Experts Present Action-able Success Models

Speakers will present the most-successful 'how-to' model in their field of Internet expertise. Then, participants will work small group mastermind teams to collaborate and apply each model to their business. At the end of the day, everyone gets a 360 business review.

Speakers include:
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett USA Today, online reputation management
Brian Clark, Copyblogger, online business models that work
Lorelle VanFossen, Lorelle on WordPress, focusing your business to get noticed
Chris Garrett, managing the editorial
Chris Brogan, social media choices that produce
Dave Bullock, sales models
Liz Strauss, how to build an irresistible offer
Wendy Piersall, success management.

Attendees Benefit from Pro Blogger Interaction
In the community of business bloggers, professionals insure online business success by the conversations and relationships they make every day. Here's how Tony Clark, of Teaching Sells, described his SOBCon07 experience:
It's fitting that a great blogging conference mimics a great blog!
Stays on topic, but remains flexible
Is informative, but friendly and welcoming
Is a conversation, rather than a lecture
Makes it hard to leave, but easy to want to come back
That's exactly what the beta edition of SOBCon was. And like other really good online betas, it was hard to distinguish from a production version.

Conference Capacity Limited to 250
Expected to be a sell-out, SOBCon08 registration is limited to the first 250 registrants. Register online now at the SOBCon08 Website at http://www.sobevent.com.
