Want to win a free ticket to the largest content marketing event on the planet?

Our friends at the Content Marketing Institute have put together an amazing event taking place in Columbus, Ohio this year.  And they’ve agreed to let us give away two tickets to this special event.

First, what is this event?

Content Marketing World 2012 is the largest in-person conference dedicated to helping marketers and business owners master content marketing.  This year’s conference takes place September 4-6, 2012 at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio (just outside the Ohio State University campus).

Hundreds of businesses have already signed up, including Level 3, Google, SAS, IBM, Majestic Steel, Nationwide, Deloitte, UBM, Caterpillar, Cisco Systems, CME Group, University of Phoenix and many other leading small and large brands.

Over 70 (yes, that’s right… 70) of the world’s most respected content marketing and social media experts will share their strategies with you.

Hear from Sam Sebastian (Google, Inc.), Mitch Joel (author, Six Pixels of Separation), Jay Baer (co-author, The Now Revolution), Jason Falls (author, No Bullshit Social Media), Michael Stelzner (founder, Social Media Examiner), Mark Schaefer (author, Return on Influence), Ann Handley and C.C. Chapman (co-authors, Content Rules),  Brian Clark (founder, Copyblogger), Lee Odden (author, Optimize), Marcus Sheridan (owner, world’s largest swimming pool blog), Amy Porterfield (co-author, Facebook Marketing All-in-One for Dummies) and experts from Dell, Sears, Kraft, Intel, IBM, SAP, SAS, Oakley, Sybase, and Kelly Services—just to mention a few.

Presentation topics include developing a content marketing strategy, content discovery and distribution, finding and engaging your target audience, measuring success, and customized tracks for B2B, B2C, small business, social media and more! Check out all the sessions.

And if that wasn’t enough, the one-and-only Rick Springfield will be performing many of his 17 Top-40 hits, including the ever-popular “Jessie’s Girl.”

At last fall’s event, 99% of attendees said they’d recommend the event to a friend and attend again.
