Three Seminars/Conferences in Two Weeks is Finally Over

  • Flew back from L.A. a few hours ago and with all the stuff I learned over the last couple of week, I don’t know where and how to start implementing the new found knowledge. First I want to thank John Kirker, everyone at Elite Retreat and Future Now for giving me the opportunity to attend the recent events.

    Call to Action

    What I loved about the Call to Action event is the in-your-face, here’s what worked for our clients presentation. Basically, most of us see websites as just that…websites. After the event, you will appreciate the fact that functional, persuasive and highly profitable websites are acually a series of planned processes. It blew me away and I will never see a website in the same manner again. Also, there is NO short-cut to higher conversions. I love this because fewer people will abuse and try to replicate it. Hard work, planning and testing is what the conversion game is all about.

    Elite Retreat

    I covered this cool event held in San Francisco with better details on this Seo Book blog post. I will be more involved with their Seo Training program in the future as well. It’s just that I have SO MUCH on my plate right now so my involvement there will increase slowly but gradually.

    Jay Abraham Reunion

    It was cool enough to see Jay in person. I spent thousands of dollars reading his stuff when I was in my early 20s. I even bought the Mastermind Tape series which I never got to listen to because I don’t have a tape player. My favorite speakers were Joel Epstein, Rieva Lesonsky, Chet Holmes, Andy Miller, Stephen M.R. Covey and Don Moine. The rest were teleconferences and I couldn’t feel the connection with the speakers through that arrangement. We totally missed the third day because Aaron had to catch up with work but we made up for it by having lunch with John and Damian Raffele at Zucca.

    I also learned more about Aaron in this trip. He’s very much into search and other forms of online marketing where I am very interested and want to learn about other businesses/industries and study different business models. True the days were long. The conference started at 8:30 am and the real “networking” started at 8:30 pm. I am HUGE on networking/connection building. I don’t care what industry or business or product or service others are offering. I am INTERESTED in learning WHAT they do and HOW they do it. I also have fun meeting new people (especially business owners) whereas Aaron likes to stick to his circles. It’s funny how you learn more about your spouse through how you interact in business. There’s no right or wrong way to approach networking. I think it’s a matter of preference but unfortunately for me, we didn’t attend the late networking event. I guess it was fair to Aaron becuase he got exhausted before dinner started.
