Can you imagine trying to figure all this marketing out for yourself? Luckily you don’t have to because there are some great opportunities for you to learn this stuff at some at seminars, conferences and workshops. One of them is even free. So here are a few events I recommend, I’ll be at all of them, not only speaking, but learning right beside you.
ProductCamp Austin: August 7, 2010 in Austin, Texas
Billed as a unconference about marketing and product management, ProductCamp is an excellent learning and networking opportunity for entrepreneurs, small business owners, marketing managers, product managers and product developers. Unconference means that the event is collaborative and user organized. Potential speakers submit their session proposals in advance and unconference attendees vote on the sessions they want that morning. This event is FREE.
