I'm very happy to announce that I'm teaching at least one class at MemoryTrends in October in Las Vegas, probably two.
One class has been confirmed -- I'm co-teaching a marketing class with my publisher, Elaine Floyd, sponsored by Craftrends. The tentative title is "Marketing With News: Keep in touch with your customers, in print and online". Elaine will talk about traditional ways to communicate with a mailing list, such as print newsletters and postcards, and I will discuss "new media", such as blogs, e-newsletters, and podcasts. I'm completely jazzed about the topic -- it's VERY me (well, and Elaine, too!) And I'm really excited to be doing a marketing class, breaking away from my "usual" subject matter for trade show classes.
The other class has been proposed, but not officially confirmed, so I can't give specifics yet, but it will be a class project kind of class, with outline for retailers/instructors to go back and teach on their own, sponsored by a manufacturer with a cool new product line in the works. How's that for vague? ;) Obviously I'll post more details as they become available.
I just wanted to post that I will definitely be at MemoryTrends in Vegas this fall, and I look forward to seeing some of you there! Who will I see?
