In the past few months (really ever since SXSW) I’ve heard from many event organizers that they were interested in having a LIVE #Blogchat added to their agenda. And as you can see here, there’s currently four LIVE #Blogchats scheduled for the remainder of 2011.
Now as I am working with event organizers to bring a LIVE #Blogchat there, I am facing two issues:
1 – A lot of event organizers know of #Blogchat on Twitter, but aren’t sure what a LIVE version of the chat would look like. They aren’t sure exactly what they are getting.
2 – Both at SXSW, and at the B2B Forum last month, when the LIVE #Blogchat was done, I really wish I had spoken at the event as well.
So in order to potentially address both these issues, I wanted to offer a ‘package’ deal to event organizers. For the fee of $7,500.00 (not including travel), I will not only speak at your event (a 1-hour session), but I will also participate on a 1-hour panel, and we’ll do a LIVE #Blogchat as well. That’s roughly a 25% discount over what I would charge to do each individually. Now I can only offer three packages at this rate, one for August, one for October, and one for November. So if you have an event scheduled for those months, please let me know and we’ll see if we can get something scheduled.
Now this doesn’t have to be a conference, it could also be a company event, in a couple of weeks I will be in Austin at Dell’s #DellCAP event, and we’ll be doing a LIVE #Blogchat as part of it. Maybe you have a company or private industry event that you think this package would be a good fit for.
So I wanted to throw this out there and see what happens. And as of right now, I’m not planning on doing any LIVE #Blogchats in December or January. I do want to do one next year at SXSW in March, and possibly one in February, but I’ll just have too much going on at the end of the year to plan many speaking trips.
Again, the offer is I’ll speak at your event (up to 1-hour session), I will also be a panelist in another 1-hour session, plus we’ll hold a LIVE #Blogchat at your event, all for $7,500.00 plus travel (flight, hotel, cabs, food). I can only offer three slots at this price, one for August, one for October, and one for November. When these slots are reserved via a deposit, they come off the board. And I’ll update this post to reflect that. Please email me to secure one of these spots.
Also, if are only interested in having me speak at your event, or only interested in having a LIVE #Blogchat, of course we can talk about that, please email me and I’ll see what we can work out!
