On April 10th I will be at the London Drugs at Georgia and Granville to talk about my book, give away some prizes, and do some signings. London Drugs was the first place in Canada where I saw my book on the shelf so it’s pretty exciting to partner with them for this event. My co-author Eric Butow lives in California so I’ll be flying solo answering questions about Blogging to Drive Business.

So I kinda wrote a book...

My book Blogging to Drive Business is available in-store at all London Drugs locations across Western Canada. To build the momentum for the event, I had a little shopping spree as I put together the “Ultimate Blogger Starter Kit” to give away.

The prize pack includes:

  • A laptop: Certified Data Notebook
  • A camera: Nikon Coolpix L110
  • Lexar Platinum II 4GB SDHC card
  • Transcend 16GB thumbdrive
  • Logix Ultranet laptop case
  • A copy of my book, Blogging to Drive Business
  • A month’s supply of coffee
  • Total value approximately: $1,000
  • You can only enter the contest through the form below. We’ll do the draw live using this contesting platform and you will need to be in the store on April 10th to claim the prize should your name be drawn.

    UpdateAt the store today we did a live draw and Karm was the winner, congratulations!

    The book itself isn’t about Miss604 but I have taken my experiences in social media and applied them for business. Aside from coding my first website in 1997, I have been working in the online media realm over the last ten years. I have managed teams from Vancouver to Boston doing everything from streaming audio webcasting to building WordPress websites for some of the most recognized brands in the market today. This isn’t about making money off your blog, it’s about setting up and growing a business blog for your company – no matter its size.

    My co-author, Eric Butow, has been writing books about online tools for business since 2001 including How to Succeed in Business Using LinkedIn. I hope you’ll find our book helpful in its easy-to-digest format.

    Event: Book signing for Blogging to Drive Business
    Date: Saturday, April 10, 2010
    Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm (come anytime, I’ll speak 11:00 – 11:30 / contest draw about 12:30)
    Location: London Drugs – 710 Granville St. (at Georgia, downstairs)

    The event should be really fun and I’ll even throw in discussions on some recent experiences such as how I covered the Olympics and Paralympics using a blog. Mark it in your calendars (or RSVP on the Facebook event), sign up for the prize pack, and I hope to see you on the 10th.

    2. Rachel Thexton says:

      This event looks like lots of fun and a great chance to come by and pick up your book for which I have been hearing lots of great buzz! I will be there.

    3. Excellent. Blogs are essential to any business in the world of today. I’d love to win your prize package, from the screen shots it seems it is a fairly short book. How many pages is it? Quite an incentive so I think I’ll sign up for the contest.
