This is Not Your Father’s You Tube
BlogWorld 2010 Speaker
Saturday October 16, 2010
3:30PM – 4:30PM
@ Tradewinds E&F 7
I know if I write of “open minded” and Vegas in the same paragraph, a lot of images will flash through your head. I must, however, say just that in this little BlogWorld “Tip” that nobody else will give you.
We’re all creators, type “A” types if you will. We’re pretty sure we’re doing the right thing. That’s why we’re coming to this event. That’s why we’ve embraced this wacky world of Blogging and New Media.
However, reality: If we look deep into ourselves, too many of us are hoping to find others in Vegas who think just like we do so we can report home that we’re on the right path. Embrace that, and BlogWorld will be 1/10th the event it could be.
But, if you are willing to see Blogging, Podcasting, New Media, and Twittering (heck, even Four Squaring) through some of the brilliant minds that you’ll both see on stage and meet on the show floors, you’ll come home a better person. Some people are going to suggest things that will just rock you to the bone. You might return needing to kill a blog, re-engineer a strategy, fire your Webmaster, or change your entire format.
Are you willing to do that?
I’m thrilled to have put together a panel of YouTube experts that should change everything you thought you knew about the site. Andrew Baron from Rocketboom will be chatting about YouTube LIVE. That’s right LIVE. Are you ready to go LIVE at YouTube? Kent Nichols from Ask A Ninja will chat about their move to a 5-day-a-week format at YouTube and how they’ve moved from the “old” format to something very new and exciting. Does your content need a shake up as well? If it happened to the Ninja, it could happen to you. Julie Perry from BLASTMedia will show how real brands are seeing real ROI from YouTube and no longer are willing to throw stuff at the wall hoping it will stick. The “big names” are asking for results. We can finally give it to them. Can you deliver results with YouTube or are you just “playing around?”
I hope you’ll attend our panel. We’ve got more than a thousand dollars worth of very cool prizes to give away during and should change a few minds too.
Will yours be one of them?
Even if you can’t attend our YouTube Superpanel, do ask yourself this question about BlogWorld 2010:
Are you looking to prove yourself, or are you looking to open your mind?
