Today tickets go on sale for ProBlogger Evolve – two events in Australia for bloggers.
Yes you read that correctly – after 7 previous years of one event per year – we’re trying something new by running two events in two cities over two weekends.
We’re calling it ProBlogger Evolve because we think the way blogs are monetised really does need to evolve. The time we spend together will really focus in on some of the emerging models people are using to monetise blogs.
Here’s what you need to know about ProBlogger Evolve
Firstly where and when:
Brisbane – at Brisbane Rydges Southbank Hotel on 29-30 July
Melbourne – at Melbourne Rydges CBD Hotel on 5-6 August
Secondly – our new format of conference and masterminds
This year we’re trying a new format.
Day 1 Conference – in both cities the first day will be a single day conference to examine monetisation strategies through the lens of 4 key pillars of blogging – those of Content, Engagement, Traffic and Conversion. These days will be everyone in a single track for a full day.
Day 2 Mastermind – the second day is mastermind day and will be more intimate (we’re limiting it to 32 attendees) and a chance to dive deep into the business model(s) best suited to you and to spend time brainstorming, planning, asking questions about your blog and business.
Day 1 will be pitched at a level that is accessible for everyone but day 2 will be at a higher level for those who want to not only learn some of the great topics we’ll cover on day 1 but who want to talk through how to apply it to their business.
So there will be two ticket types:
- Conference only ticket (just day 1)
- Conference + Mastermind (both days)
Update: the Melbourne Conference + Mastermind ticket is now sold out and the Brisbane Mastermind ticket has only a few spots left. We will set up a waitlist in case more tickets become available for these masterminds but suggest you pick up the Day 1 ticket in the mean time.
Thirdly – let’s talk about our exciting international keynote presenter…
Last week in San Diego I did a little Facebook live to announce to our Facebook community who is keynoting the event this year.
So this year Pat Flynn is returning to our event for the second time. Pat came out in 2014 an has been one of our most highly rated speakers ever.
Pat will be our closing keynote at the Day 1 Conference in both cities (as well as involved on that day with Q&A) but will be heavily involved in the mastermind days too – so those taking that opportunity will all have an opportunity to sit around a table with him in a small group to ask questions, brainstorm on your blog together and learn from his years of experience.
Earlybird Tickets Available Now for a Limited Time
We’re still putting the rest of our lineup for this year’s events together but wanted to let you know what we’re planning and also today are making Earlybird Tickets available.
These earlybird tickets give you $100 off both ticket types. This will be available for two days only (10pm AEDT on 30 March).
The Earlybird Ticket Prices are:
- Conference only ticket – $299 (AUD)
- Conference + Mastermind – $1199 (AUD)
There are limited numbers of tickets available in both cities and extremely limited numbers of tickets (and a high interest from what we can tell) in the mastermind tickets – so to avoid disappointment we suggest securing your tickets as soon as possible.
Get full details of what’s included in tickets and what we’re planning in terms of the agenda on our events page which is where you can also now pick up your tickets.
PS: For those of you in the US – we have an event for you too!
If you’re in the USA an want to get to a ProBlogger event you’re in luck.
This year I’m cohosting an event called the Success Incubator in Dallas Texas on 24-25 October and you can also pick up an Earlybird ticket to that event until 31 March.
