In this episode of the VLOG, I talk about my experience at Podcamp Dallas. I had a chance to talk to Gary Leland from FastPitch.tv, and he made quite an impression on me. I can't wait to make it to Podcamp Dallas next year. By the way, my presentation was video taped, and I am hoping to have that on line by the end of the month.
What a blast!
Hey. It’s Mark Mason from Late Night Internet Marketing.
I’m driving in the rain in Dallas this time. At least I think it’s rain. We haven’t seen much of this wet stuff falling from the sky, so I’m not sure what to call it, but I’m happy to have it.
Traffic is really bad, so I thought I would throw on the camera and tell you a little bit about Podcamp Dallas. I really enjoyed that and I strongly encourage you to attend meetups in your area in your niche, whether that’s podcasting or internet marketing. You can go to Meetup.com and find all kinds of people doing all kinds of stuff that’s related to stuff that you’re interested in. Highly recommended.
The guy that runs Podcamp Dallas this year told me a story. His name is Gary Leland, he’s the FastPitch.tv guy. He’s a softball junkie. We were talking about his online journey and he has a store here in Arlington.
Usually when you meet someone in online marketing that has a store, usually the story is they had a brick and mortar store and in order to expand their revenue they started to try to sell stuff online. Not Gary.
This blew me away. Gary had built an online store first and the thing was so successful that people were tracking him down at his address where the domain was registered and where he was warehousing products for shipment, they were knocking on the door wanting to buy stuff.
His website got so big that he had to open a store. That is awesome and that’s a story you don’t hear every day. You know you’re in the presence of greatness when you’re with a guy and people are beating a path to his freaking door. How awesome is that?
Hopefully that will get you motivated to get working on your website!
I’m Mark Mason from LateNightInternetMarketing.com, in a car in Dallas, in the rain. Have a great day 🙂
