I’ve got a problem: I want to go to some of the big e-commerce conferences. The problem is that there’s no budget for it in our new, small, just-getting-started company. I think it would really benefit me AND my company, but I rarely have time to talk to my boss about work stuff (he’s super-busy and just doesn’t have time for all of us), and when I do get time to talk to him, I don’t really want to spend it asking him to send me to a conference. But if I won a FREE full conference pass, I probably could ask him for some travel money … especially if I could work in a meeting on the trip too, right?
Are you in the same boat?
Get Elastic, one of my favorite blogs, is giving away free conference passes to three big events (Shop.org Annual Summit 2008 in Las Vegas, Online Market World in San Francisco, and Search Marketing Expo (SMX East) in New York) — oh, and signed copies of Avinash Kaushik’s book “Web Analytics: An Hour a Day”–and all you have to do is one of three things:
- Subscribe to the Get Elastic e-commerce blog via RSS or subscribe by email and leave a comment on their blog that you just subscribed.
- If you are already subscribed, get a friend to subscribe and leave a comment
- If you are a blogger, blog about the contest and help spread the word!
When you leave your comment, don’t forget to tell them which prizes you want.
If you do anything worthwhile with e-commerce or the web, you should subscribe to Get Elastic anyway. I’ve found many a useful insight on their blog. And their webinars are excellent!
Even if you don’t win a conference pass, you’ll learn a lot by subscribing to Get Elastic, so there’s no way to lose! 🙂
