Virtual Conferences Getting More Sophisticated

I am participating in an all day online event called “Thrive 2010: The Ins and Outs of Online Marketing“, hosted by PRWeb. I will be conducting a live chat session over the lunch hour at Noon ET. You can ask just about anything you like about marketing and the web. The cost of the event is $99 but use this code PRWeb40 and you can get it for $59. There’s a nice lineup of speakers including:

  • Janet M. Thaeler on Boosting the Buzz: Driving Traffic and Publicity with News Releases
  • Anne Holland on Confessions of a Serial Entrepreneur: Marketing for Success
