eComXpo is a fun little online event that you can virtually attend for free. (You can also pay to have access to special presentations). I attended it last year (I think it was last year), and it was a fun business-oriented way to spend my time. At that event, I stuck with the totally free options, but I will probably choose to pay for some of the special presentations this time around. At $4.95 per session, I don't mind springing a few bucks to see some hopefully good SEO speakers.
Just like in the real world, this virtual trade show lets you check out vendor booths, get together with friends and business contacts for chats and networking, and allows you to attend speaker sessions. It's a pretty kickass way of attending a conference for free (or cheap) without ever leaving your home. No, it's not quite as effective or fun as being there "for real", but it's still pretty neat. I'll try to stop by the virtual meeting spots as often as I can those days, so hopefully I can meet up with some of you for a little networking and partying.
You can register here Even if you choose the completely free registration, you still get some goodies to go along with it, such as free subscriptions to Revenue Magazine and Search Marketing Standard Magazine. That's a pretty nice bonus. And in keeping with the fun aspect of the eComXpo, they've released a cute YouTube video for your enjoyment. See it below. Hope to see some of you there!
