My First Virtual Conference

I just registered for my first virtual conference--but I have a feeling that it wont be my last.
Digital Marketing World which is sponsored by Marketing Profs will be held on April 1st in the comfort of your own home or office. The only downside that I can think of is that the sponsors will have my email to nudge me with.

As you know, I am a big fan of David Meerman Scott and will defintely attend his session:

2:00pm–2:45pm EST
The New Rules of Viral Marketing
David Meerman Scott, author and marketing strategist

Following the worldwide best selling book, The New Rules of Marketing and PR, David Meerman Scott’s new book, World Wide Rave, focuses on the power of viral marketing online. Attend this presentation—just a few weeks after the launch of the new book—and be among the first to learn from David about how to create triggers that get millions of people to spread your ideas and tell your stories. Whether you market to businesses or consumers, a World Wide Rave is when people around the world are talking about you, your company, and your products. It’s when online buzz drives buyers to your virtual doorstep. And it’s when tons of fans visit your Web site and your blog because they genuinely want to be there. Learn how to take your marketing to the next level by following the six rules of “The Rave”:

1. Nobody cares about your products (except you)
2. No coercion required
3. Lose control
4. Put down roots
5. Create triggers that encourage people to share
6. Point the world to your (virtual) doorstep

C u there!
