A Note to Readers
from Ann Handley
Chief Content Officer

The Luck of the Irish

It's St. Patrick's Day. And even if you're not Irish (although I am), it's your lucky day! Our virtual seminar den mother, Shelley Ryan, has decided to share a Pot o' Seminars with you for free. Gratis. Why? Well, just because.


As Shelley says, our paid members "have raved about a lot of our recent presentations, so I thought I'd give you a chance to share the experience." So we're unlocking some of our most popular broadcast recordings for everyone.

This offer is for this week only – so you have to act fast. And by the way, Shelley points out that these web recordings captured not only the presentation, but also the audience interaction and Q&A time. As you know from attending any kind of event, that's often the juiciest part of seminar, so don't miss it!

Among the free five-pack of seminars:

  • Bam! A Recipe to Add Social Media to your Marketing Mix

  • Content Marketing: How to Position Your Company as a Trusted Expert Resource

  • Green to Gold: Why Smart Companies Are Going Green

  • How to Make Your B-to-B Website a Lead Generation Machine

  • Twitter Like You Mean It: The Right Way to Tweet Your Brand
From Shelley:

"Now through 8pm Eastern on Friday, March 20th, you can watch any or all of these 90-minute seminars, right at your desktop. Think of it as your personal spring break for rejuvenating your marketing know-how. How lucky is that?"

So listen in here and let me know what you think. As always, I appreciate your feedback!
