For the last 6 or so years, I’ve been a part of putting on a new media conference in Dayton. This year, we’ve got an exciting lineup of speakers and break-out sessions- on everything you need to know about social media, advertising using new media, marketing and we’ll finish off with a speaker from Google.
Registration is about to wrap up- so, if you want to avoid paying a late fee, I suggest you register NOW.
The event is called SummitUp and it will be Tuesday, March 3, at Sinclair Community College, building 12. A full day of guru’ness is only $199, $20 less if you belong to one of the sponsoring organizations.

I built the site using WordPress- the same open source content management system that runs Esrati.com
If you’d like a full day seminar on how to build your own site and maintain it yourself – I’ll be holding my Websitetology seminar  on Thursday, March 12. It’s only $139 and includes lunch from the fabulous Pizza Factory .
There is no excuse for not having a website anymore- nor is there any reason not to have a pretty good understanding of new media. These full-day sessions will give you the tools to go global with minimal expense.
Hopefully, I’ll see you at both seminars.
