And given this economy, who doesn't want more business?

But if you're like me, you're looking to maximize your efforts without becoming overwhelmed. You simply want to know what works best.

Social Media Examiner (in partnership with BlogWorld) is happy to announce an online event designed to help marketers and business owners quickly achieve blogging success—Blogging Success Summit 2011.

This fully online conference starts Tuesday, February 1, and runs through February 22. It's comfortably spread over four weeks (and recorded for later playback) to accommodate your schedule. There's no travel! You simply attend from the comfort of your home or office.

Consider this: more than 95% of attendees at our last three events said they'd recommend them to a friend and attend again (see their testimonials below). Now we have an all-new slate of dynamic sessions fully focused on blogging.

P.S. In case you're wondering, blogging involves creating and publishing engaging content that connects directly with customers and prospects via your own website. The result: you'll increase your business exposure, improve customer satisfaction, build strong brand advocates, generate quality leads, and achieve sales growth.

P.P.S. Can I be blunt? Studies show that consumers prefer to work with businesses that have a strong social media presence. It's not too late to get your business engaged with customers (and prospects) through a blog. If you wait, you'll be giving your blogging competitors a significant advantage that'll be hard to overcome.

P.P.P.S. You don't need to do this alone. If you like the thought of joining a welcoming community of like-minded peers (our last two events combined had 4400+ attendees) who'll share their experiences and wisdom as you journey together down this road, keep reading...

Proof That Blogging Means Business

Watch this video as Michael Stelzner shares how blogging transformed his business, Social Media Examiner.

In 2011, marketers will need to "intensify their focus on creating magnetic content that will naturally attract consumers, rather than relying solely on the interruption model of advertising, which consumers are responding to less and less," said the CEO of eMarketer, Geoff Ramsey.

Blogs are the answer!

Consider these interesting factoids:
  • Most people read blogs: More than half of Internet users read a blog at least monthly and find them very influential, according to research from Technorati and eMarketer. This is expected to rise to over 60% by 2014.

  • Blogs are the #1 priority for marketers: Marketers indicated increasing their blogging activities was their number-one priority, according to the 2010 Social Media Industry Report.

  • Corporate blogging on the rise: More than 43% of U.S. companies will market via a blog by 2012, up from 34% in 2010, according to eMarketer. Media companies, marketers, and small business owners are a sampling of the businesses driving this growth.

  • Blogs enhance search engine rankings: A significant 58% of marketers use their blog to improve their search engine optimization, according to eMarketer.

  • Small businesses are seeing big benefits: Businesses that have blogs receive 55% more traffic than those that don't, found a HubSpot study.

  • Blogs generate quality leads: The primary benefit of a blog for most self-employed business owners is generating new leads for their businesses, according to Technorati.

  • Consumers trust blogs more than Facebook and Twitter: A significant 47% of consumers will refer a brand they read about through a blog, versus only 28% for a Facebook brand and 22% for Twitter, according to Technorati and Razorfish.

And these recent statistics are just a small illustration of the power of blogs.

So the big question is: What do experienced marketers and business owners know and do with their blogs that makes them so successful?

If you knew that—if you knew step-by-step how the pros use their blogs to attract high-quality customers and achieve success—you could simply duplicate what they do and achieve similar results.

That's what Blogging Success Summit 2011 is all about. We've brought together the world's most successful blogging practitioners and asked them to reveal their success secrets to YOU. And it's all live!

And the best part? You don't have to spend a small fortune on travel, meals or a hotel to attend. The conference is completely online. You "attend" from the comfort of your own home or office, using your computer to watch, listen, and participate in the presentations and networking.

However, like any conference, there's a limit to how many people can fit in the "room." So if you're interested in connecting with valuable customers and prospects, enhancing your image in your industry, and improving sales, secure your spot at this conference today.

Is the Blogging Success Summit 2011 a Fit for You?

First, you don't need to be a techno-geek or twenty-something to use and benefit from blogs. You might be surprised to learn that many business bloggers are aged 30 to 60.

If you find yourself in one of the categories below, the Blogging Success Summit 2011 is a fit for you:

  • The Small Business Owner: You're just getting underway with your blog—likely a consultant, coach, local business owner, writer, agent, artist, or general "gun for hire"—and see the potential of blogging, but want to speed your path to success with the least effort and the greatest return.

  • The Corporate Marketer: You work for a corporation and have been tasked to manage the company's blog strategy. You likely face internal battles generating quality content, but you know there's real potential.

  • The Experienced Social Media User: You've been running your blog for a while, but want better results. You're ready to take your business to a whole new level by following the proven tactics of the pros and leveraging new techniques. Better response. Less work. More profitability.

If you find yourself in any of the above categories, Blogging Success Summit 2011 is an event you don't want to miss.


How It Works

Studies frequently show people who attend such professional development events are more successful, reach their business goals faster, enjoy their work more, build better relationships, and earn a higher income!

Here's how this event works:

1. Though this summit will take place online, it will be a live event.

The instructors will be presenting their sessions live in real time, right on your computer screen. You can listen and watch their presentations, and speak directly to the experts, asking questions and getting instant answers.

When you register, you'll be given a link and access information for each session. When the date and time arrive, you simply pull up your web browser, go to a web page, type in your log-in information and, voilà, you're "there." It's the virtual equivalent of walking into a room at a live conference and sitting down!

2. You can interact live with the presenters.

That means you can actually speak with the blogging superstars.

During each session, you'll hear and see the lessons (so be sure to turn on your computer speakers!). The virtual room also offers interactive capabilities beyond what's possible at live conferences. You can participate in instant polls and download presentation slide decks to print out for note-taking.

Just like regular conferences, most sessions last about an hour, and will offer an opportunity for live questions and answers.

If you want to ask a presenter a question, we'll provide a toll-free number you can dial. A real operator brings you on the line (like a radio talk show) and you speak directly to the experts!

We also provide a private LinkedIn group where you can interact with presenters and fellow attendees. You also get a downloadable video recording of each session with transcripts! Session recordings can be streamed online using a computer, iPhone, iPad or other HTML5-enabled mobile device, or downloaded to your desktop.

3. Of course, networking is a big part of this event...

Many people who attend our professional development summits report the relationships they establish with fellow attendees are priceless… relationships that often continue to be a source of advice and support for years to come.

Between sessions, you can network with other summit attendees on the exclusive Blogging Success Summit 2011 LinkedIn group—available ONLY to event registrants (at one of our prior events, more than 1200 messages were generated in our private event forum).

You also get access to our private LinkedIn group (our last event had 1200 people networking in our LinkedIn group), and access to Twitter-based chat rooms where you can interact live with your peers.

We'll provide a certificate of achievement for attendees who successfully complete the summit and pass an examination.

This event was designed by marketers for marketers. That means we built it to accommodate your busy schedule. We've spread the summit out over 4 weeks, with multiple sessions each week.

You don't have to stop working to attend (AND you can begin applying what you'll discover immediately). The audio and video from each session are recorded, and transcripts are included for further study.

"Attend" Any or ALL of the Following Sessions

At traditional summits and conferences, groups of sessions are often held at the same time, so it's impossible to attend them all.

Not this summit.

When you register, you'll be able to take advantage of EVERY business-building opportunity. Even better, after the summit you can download a video recording of each and every session. If you miss a live session, we'll provide you a recording AND transcript for FREE.

Two ways. First, during the live presentations, you'll be able to dial a toll-free number (U.S. and Canada) and speak directly with the presenters during the live Q&A portion of the session.

You can attend any or all of the sessions (or catch the recordings if you miss any). However, a summit ticket is like a Disneyland ticket—you get access to everything. If you want access to any of this great content, you must purchase your ticket before the completion of the summit. After the summit has ended, this exclusive content will no longer be available for sale and the recordings will only be available to summit attendees.
