Is Your Blog Getting The Results You Hoped For?

By · December 27, 2010 · Filed in Blogging Success Summit · 1 Comment »

Have you heard the buzz about Blogging Success Summit 2011—the web’s largest online blogging conference?

Before I tell you how this virtual summit will help your business gain more exposure, more qualified leads, better customer engagement and more sales, let me share a story with you.

PROOF BLOGGING WORKS…

In October 2009, my friend Michael Stelzner started Social Media Examiner, a blog for marketers and small business owners. I’ve had the honor of being a guest blogger on his site for the past year. Take some time to read my blog posts on Social Media Examiner.

Almost overnight, his site became one of the top business blogs in the world.

He didn’t advertise, didn’t rely on the press and almost none of his traffic came from search engines.

Slightly more than a year later, he has nearly 50,000 email subscribers, a half-million page views a month, and has generated nearly $2 million in sales from the site.

Everything he does focuses around delivering high-quality content along with intelligent marketing.

Michael’s story is not unique. A significant 43% of U.S. companies will be marketing via their own blog by 2012, according to eMarketer.

Now the connection… Blogging represents a new marketing frontier because it bypasses all the costly middlemen and allows you to own your own platform, quickly engaging with your customers and prospects! AND this presents an enormous opportunity for you.

SO WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?

bloggingsuccesssummitMichael (and his team) have been working for months to bring the best minds in blogging together in a fully online event called Blogging Success Summit 2011 .

More than 4,400 marketers and business owners from around the world attended his last two summits (including myself). Businesses were transformed. In fact, 95% of attendees said they’d attend again.

This summit’s focus is to empower you to implement successful blogging strategies, grow a loyal following, generate quality leads and sell with your blog.

Twenty-three of the world’s leading social media superstars will be summit instructors.

Presenters include Technorati CEO Richard Jalichandra , Scott Monty (head of social media, Ford), Darren Rowse (co-author, ProBlogger), Brian Clark (Copyblogger), Michael Stelzner (Social Media Examiner), Debbie Weil (author, The Corporate Blogging Book), Douglas Karr (co-author, Corporate Blogging for Dummies) and experts from McDonald’s, Cisco, Southwest Airlines, Sony and Procter & Gamble.
