Only days before the GEO Domain Expo in New Orleans did Patrick Carleton send me an email saying to send a bio within the hour, because I would be speaking Thursday. I don’t know if you guys remember but I am deathly afraid of public speaking. Just this past November was my first ever speaking engagement to a local business group. Thankfully I made it through, I think mainly because it was only a group of around 25 people.
Ok, so I agreed to Patrick’s demand…er…request (lol) and said I would participate on his Social Media panel. Still nothing prepared, I had a conversation the night before with Patrick telling him I was extremely scared but thankful it was going to be questions and answers so I can rely on the other members of the panel. What came next made my heart race. Patrick said no, you will have ten minutes of your own on stage to discuss Social Media. WHOA!!!
Long story short, I was a nervous wreck and prepared nothing. The other panelists had slide show presentations and pages of notes to refer to. I decided to just show a real world example of how Social Media works for me. I pulled up my accounts (Twitter/Facebook/Su.pr) to show how I drive roughly 5,000 visitors to any website I choose every single month.
I think I nailed it…watch the video and judge for yourself. Before you watch, I want to give a special thank you to Steven Kaziyev of DomainersDigest.com for recording and editing the following videos.
I also want to say that Patrick Carleton put together a great event. The GEO niche is very unique, a lot of different faces from the other shows so it was nice to meet new people and gain a little more insight about the GEO space.
