SBI Conference in Anguilla 2011
The SBI Conference in Anguilla was my fourth SBI conference and it was a blast.
Anguilla is a somewhat deserted place – it caters to people who want to get away from hustle and bustle. It also caters to people who look for luxury vacations.
So there’s not much to do on Anguilla – and that’s why it was so cool to be there.
We simply stayed around the pool (or in it) with a few drinks and had some great laughs, or we went together to a restaurant and spent the evening chatting about life as an online business owner, how we hate Pandas or how to A/B split test which rum punch tastes better.
And escaping from cold Europe or US and jumping into a Caribbean ocean with SBI friends is also something to remember…
Of course, we also had the honor of meeting Ken Evoy, listen to his thoughts on dealing with Panda and what the future of Internet is likely to be.
The BBQ at Ken’s place on Saturday was the pinnacle of the Anguilla conference.
The food was great and the excitement was almost palpable as so many people met Ken for the first time and had to chance to chat with him and Janice and express how much it means to all of us that they put so much effort in helping us succeed.
The conference presenters did a fantastic job of preparing their material and presenting it in a clear and concise way – although Antoinette’s A/B and Multivariate testing presentation caused some brain cells to overheat at some points… 😉 (Could someone please send me a pic of Antoinette presenting? Thanks)
Each presentation included some golden nugget of information which will change how I approach certain areas of an online business like preselling better, building more credibility, being more effective, knowing how to split test Adsense and much more.
The full conference agenda can be found on the SBI Conferences website…
Kudos to Kim and Tom for organizing the conference and making it run smoothly from start to finish.
If you’ve never been to an SBI conference before, I can’t really explain what you’re missing. You have to experience it.
It’s not just about the knowledge the presenters share (for free), it’s the feeling of meeting people who are on the same wavelength and on the same journey towards freedom that really deeply connects you with everyone you meet at the conference.
You know that when you sit behind your laptop and build those darn links again that so many of your friends are doing the same battling their way towards freedom and independence – and this gives you that extra motivation and energy that eventually helps you succeed.
The 2012 SBI Conferences have been announced too – end of April or first part of May in New York City, May 25-27 in Rome and September in San Francisco.
You’ve got to do at least one – and see how that accelerates your journey towards freedom.
