I've just submitted my details to confirm my slot as a speaker at Affiliate Summit East 2010, happening August 15-17 of this year. The panel is called Podcasting 101, and it's led by Trisha Lyn Fawver, a blogger (TrishaLyn.com) and podcaster (Affiliate Marketing Fanatics).
Also on the panel? Joe Magennis, my partner on Geek Dads Weekly! Our third on the show, Drew Bennett, is up for another panel at the conference, and speakers are only allowed one panel each.
The published panel description is as follows:
Location: Room 4
In this era of self-publishing, anyone – including you – can produce a podcast (and make money doing it!) Come learn the basics of producing, monetizing, hosting and promoting your very own podcast.
Experience level: Beginner
Target audience: Affiliates/Publishers
We're up first on the 15th! Well, along with three other sessions in that time slot. I'm not actually sure if that's a good thing… but I suppose if I start to get nervous, I can remind myself that I'm getting it out of the way early so I can enjoy the rest of the conference.
I sat on an impromptu panel at Summit West in Las Vegas back in January, as part of the GeekCast.fm Live! session. It was a lot of fun, and I'm sure this panel will be, too. Fun and informative, that's our goal.
Are you planning on going to Summit? I'd love to say hello.
Update: shortly after I posted this, it was announced that Drew's panel has been approved and scheduled. He's on Tuesday at 2pm with Murray Newlands and Eric Schechter, and the session is called How Bloggers Can Successfully Connect with Audiences.
