I’m happy to announce that I’ll be speaking at the first TravelCon taking place in Austin, Texas from September 20-22nd. I’ll be speaking on WordPress and eCommerce.
My talk: Selling Online: How to Set Up Your Online Store
If you want to make a living from your travel business, you’re going to need to learn how to sell. This lesson will show you how to set up online shopping carts and payment systems so you can beginning selling products on your website.
The travel media environment is constantly changing. This three day conference will connect you with industry leaders, influencers, and celebrated writers through keynote speeches, small group writing and photography workshops, breakout tutorial sessions, and industry panels. You will learn what’s working in today’s competitive travel industry, timeless business practices, and the skills you need to succeed as a creator.
This is an exciting opportunity for me because I’ve been out of the loop when it comes to the travel industry and blogging while I was working at Automattic. Now as a freelancer I’m excited to connect with old friends and get involved with the community again.
