ProBlogger Training Event 2012
Friday, October 12, 2012 at 7:30 AM - Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 5:00 PM (EST)
UPDATE: this event has sold out as of 23 July. Thanks to everyone for your interest. We have started a waitlist for tickets for those interested in attending. While our venue is now at capacity there may be a handful of tickets come up as we get closer and as we finalize speaker numbers. Please add your details above and we'll contact you if tickets become available.
The ProBlogger Training Event has been designed to help bloggers who want to build profitable blogs. We'll be looking at a variety of models for doing this and our emphasis is upon giving you practical training that you can go away and implement.
You'll get a little 'theory' and some good 'discussions' but just as important to us is that you walk away with skills and strategies to implement.
The day will involve a mix of keynote training presentations, panels with opportunity for Q&A and time for networking with other bloggers.
Attending will bring you the following benefits:
- Learn how to make your blogs profitable
- Discover how to attract brands to partner with
- Learn how to monetise your blog by creating products, services and membership areas
- Hear about techniques that successful bloggers have used to grow readership of their blogs
- Be inspired to create content that engages current readers and draws in new ones
- Be kept up to date with the latest trends and approaches to blogging
- Meet other Aussie bloggers like you for potential collaboration and shared learning
- Have fun with people who 'get' blogging

The event will be held 12-13 October, 2012. That’s a Friday and Saturday. We unfortunately won’t have one day tickets available but attendees will have opportunity to get recordings for sessions that they miss if you can’t get to the full two days.

This keynote for the ProBlogger event will cover tricks Sarah picked up in her ‘old media’ roles that bloggers can use to fuel their brand and following. She’ll talk about writing tone techniques, branding, securing advertising revenue and much more.
We will be serving a light breakfast during registrations on Friday from 7.30am until 8.30am (the first morning) to help people get to know others right from the start. This is included in the price or your ticket.
There will also be a Friday night networking event in a special venue (TBA) also included in the price of tickets. This will be a great time for mixing, relaxing after a good day of learning and having a little fun (we may even start the next morning a little later for those who have too much fun).
This year’s event will be held at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium. Sound big? Actually we’ll be in ‘rooms’ at the stadium so it will be reasonably intimate although we’ll have a bit more room in breakout rooms this year (no more sitting on the floor in popular electives).
For more information on the venue, accommodation, parking, transport and dietary requirements, please visit the ProBlogger Training Event website which will be updated with further information in the coming weeks.
