Win Full Conference Passes to E-commerce Conferences

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 ( 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:

  1. 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.
  2. If you are already subscribed, get a friend to subscribe and leave a comment
  3. 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! 🙂
