Austin Texas Networking/Mixers

by 20 comments
one of our buddies, David Gonzalez, will be hosting/organizing some easy going networking events here in Austin soon. From what I gather, it'll be a casual hang-out thing where marketers can meet and just have a good time talking shop and stuff.

I'm not sure where the first one will be held at (maybe my office, but it's out in Lakeway - about 30 minutes from downtown) so I'll let Warriors know, in case you want to come hang out.

There are a lot of marketers around here, and I'm sure some will even fly in for some of these mixers. Knowing David and the rest of the folks starting these, I'm sure they will be tons of fun.

I'll update this thread when I find out more.

Let me know if this is something you'd like to attend

    Hi Eric,

    Great idea for getting one of these together in our area. Thanks!

    I might be able to attend. Depends on the date and the time. I live in the San Antonio area, so it will take me a couple of hours to get there.

    Dadgumit, Eric, you just don't quit, do you? I KNOW you want to see me. I KNOW you want to hang out with me. I KNOW you could be more like me. I KNOW... but you are going to have to wait until I am ready!

    I'm just not ready yet! But don't you worry... the Hillbilly Marketer, Colonel Beauregard T. Jackson-Lee and I will move back down there to stay sometime in the future. THEN, me and you can hang out together, go to the park, teeter-totter and play on the merry-go-round together.

    Oh, the fun we will have!

    Take care!

    Oh and Chris... the 1880's called, they wan their six shooter back.
    Dey "wan" de six shooter back?

    Eric, dude, I KNEW you were from Louisiana! No honest-to-goodness Texan would see a picture of a rifle and call it a "six shooter!" That's like calling Dracula a mosquito!

    If you're going to take that attitude, man, YOU are going to play on the monkey bars ALONE!

    Okay, Eric, I forgive you! When I move back down there, we can still go to the playground together!

    Take care!

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
