There’s hundreds of reasons why you go to conferences: the speakers, the sessions, the lessons and learnings. But when you go home with a full brain, you take with you something of true lasting value: the relationships you build with those sharing that experience with you.
As many previous attendees in 2007 and 2008 have told us, SOBCon is a truly special gathering. Connecting and conversing are at the heart of the event, and that’s why our theme for SOBCon09, once again being held in Chicago from May 1-3, is The “ROI of Relationships”.
We know that you’ll learn a ton about how to bring your blogging and social media to a new level, but you’ll be forging friendships too. Social media is all about the community. We want that to be central to your experience at SOBCon09.
We also know that getting to conferences isn’t always easy, especially this year.
So we are announcing today the opportunity for you to significantly reduce your registration cost for the event.
It’s called the “Blog It, Earn It” discount. We’d like to hear from you about what “The ROI of Relationships” means to you. Tell us why relationships matter. How they affect what you do every day and how you do it. Maybe how you see them changing the face of tomorrow’s businesses. We want to know how relationships and personal connections shape your world.
Blog your thoughts, share it, link it back to this post, and broadcast it on Twitter (hash #blogitearnit). We’ll also link to you on the SOBCon blog for others to see and learn. And as a thank you for sharing your story, we’ll send you a special code to take $200 off the $795 FULL conference rate – that’s over a 25% savings!
Or, if you can’t make it, you could “pay it forward” and pass the discount on to one of your friends.
Please act quickly because there are only a limited number of these discounted registrations available. All blog entries must be posted no later than March 7, and the discounts must be redeemed by March 14.
Now, more than ever, relationships and connections matter. So c’mon, “Blog It, Earn It”, and then join us in Chicago in May. See you there!
