I’m running and speaking at an Internet Marketing Workshop in Brisbane next week on March 10-12 at Tattersalls Club, Queen Street Mall.
I have lots of people asking me about how I get so much exposure online and where they can find out more about how to use the Internet for their business. If you are interested in getting more exposure online and want to know how to really get more leads and sales, then you really should come to this content rich 3-day workshop.
I will be speaking on Day 1 about technology and what options businesses have and what to consider. I’ll also be talking about automation using technology and how you can really leverage on it to save time and money.
Other speakers include:
Gail Geronimos (Achaeus)- Gail will be showing each step of the process in detail about how to get leads and convert them to sales
Andrew and Daryl Grant – Successful Internet Marketers who will be sharing what goes on behind their business.
