As you know, I have committed to providing an ecommerce conference in the coming Fall (2012). The big issues have been:
After long, agonizing thoughts, including the idea of renting a bus and driving around north America (fun concept, but probably not practical!), I've finally come up with a workaround.
Happily, it also solves another problem: the cost.
For so many of us who have been hit by Panda or Penguin, and have seen traffic and income fall drastically, it's not a great time to commit somewhere between $1,500 and $2,000 to attending a conference.
As useful as they always are, it's an expensive proposition when times are lean.
This is a lesson for all of us. Sometimes, you can't see the forest for the trees! I kept asking the same questions over and over again, and every time, the same problems kept coming up:
Hosting the conference ONLINE makes total sense. It brings the conference to your home or office, anywhere in the world; it can be recorded for future playback, so if you can't make one of the sessions, you can still benefit from the material; and the price is kept affordable for the maximum number of online business owners.
Whether you take advantage of the initial offer, or sign up later, chances are it will cost you less than the price of one night in an airport hotel, plus drinks and dinner.
Here's what's included in the online conference fee:
Topics will be finalized in the next few weeks, but will definitely include: Outsourcing, Monetizing, Panda-Proof Content Creation, and Social Media Leverage.
A date is not yet fixed, but I'm thinking of late October or early November. Not to clash with Halloween or Thanksgiving.
You'll be able to get access to all the presentations anyway, as long as you sign up. So don't worry if you can't make a particular day.
Many of my regular subscribers know that I reward loyalty. I'm doing the exact same thing again with this conference.
What's more, due to popular demand, you will be able to earn your seat, and more, as for the first time I'm opening up an affiliate program for all the Best Web Content Provider products and services.
By referring others to join the conference, you can easily earn your own seat -- especially if you take advantage of the early discount.

Readers who have used my services and bought my products in the past know the quality I deliver. You may have heard me talk at various official SBI conferences in Chicago, Tampa, or Anguilla.
As repeat customers, you deserve a better price. This is my thank-you.
For anybody who somehow missed the first day -- vacation, sitting on the fence, etc. -- the reduced rate is not as spectacular, but it's still a decent saving as a thanks for your upfront registration.
Finally, the official price, which still represents great value for money. It also represents a great opportunity.
You can use affiliate links to earn cash by referring others to sign up for the Ash Conference. It's worth waiting for the price to go up to its highest level before you refer people. Win-win.
I have opened up my E-Junkie shopping cart to affiliate signups. This means you can refer customers to any of my products and services, and earn 15 percent commission. To give you some idea of what that means:
There's no way to replace the wonderful fun of socializing after hours at an online conference.
I'm going to do my best to compensate for this, by encouraging you to use the Google+ Hangout mode.
Up to 10 people can join a hangout. It's a fun way to get some face time. Provide your own preferred beverage and you'll ALMOST get that Happy Hour in Chicago effect!
I'll also open a new Facebook group for the Ash Conference.
