To Finish Off the Month of March
Besides Chalene’s event, there were two more events that I spoke at, both in my hometown of San Diego: Traffic and Conversion Summit and Social Media Marketing World.
Both were amazing.
At T&C, I connected with a lot of new people who I had never met before, which is always a great thing. I also spoke about something I call my BLP formula, which is short for my Book to List to Product formula. I shared the results of my year-long journey since launching Will It Fly? almost exactly one year earlier, and how that turned into a highly engaged email list (using my free companion course), and then finally how that turned into a paid course in Smart From Scratch.
For Social Media Marketing World, I held an event at my coworking space, WeWork, a day before it started, and about 400 people came by to hang out! It was awesome! I love bringing people together and making connections like this:
I’ll be doing more of these in the same space this year, so look out for more information about it on my Facebook or Twitter accounts!
Social Media Marketing World started the next day, and by far, it was one of the best run events I’ve ever attended. Michael Stelzner, founder of Social Media Examiner and the event, created something amazing here. I’ve attended all five years of the event, and it just keeps getting better and better.
Hat tip to the volunteers and the team who help put it all together.
I spoke twice on the final day of the event, and I had a book signing as well. It was a smaller talk since it was niched about podcasting, but a big thanks to those who attended and left me some amazing feedback about the content.
To finish things off, I ended the night, and the event, with one of my mastermind groups at a local restaurant.
Myself, Michael Stelzner, Cliff Ravenscraft, Mark Mason, Leslie Samuel, and Ray Edwards took the time to break bread and share our thoughts about the event, and I can’t even describe how great it was for us to be together. We’re usually on a call together every Wednesday, but this just reinforced the importance of meeting in person. We all congratulated Michael on a job well done, and told stories about things that happened at the event, or what sessions we enjoyed.
It was the perfect end to SMMW, and the entire month of March, because without this mastermind group, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today, that’s for sure.
April is definitely a calmer month in terms of events and launches. I’m focusing mostly on the students of Smart From Scratch and Power-Up Podcasting, and their success through the material.
Cheers, and thanks again for all of your support!
