Join Me in St. Louis this October for #FinCon13

FinConHave you ever wanted to start an online business?

When I first created FinCon, I never envisioned it would become something that I could invite PT Money readers to. Other than my post-conference wrap-ups, you guys haven’t heard much about it here.

But as the conference and my blog have evolved I think they are now more aligned than I give them credit. I know many of you want to start online businesses to help you achieve your financial goals faster. I also know that at FinCon, we teach many of the basic tenants of running and marketing an online business…not just blogs.

So I’m inviting you to join me at #FinCon13, this October 17th-20th in St. Louis.

Yes, FinCon is primarily a conference for financial bloggers to network. But there are many things to learn if you’re looking to start any type of online business.

You will get the opportunity to hear from Pat Flynn and Derek Halpern, two of the biggest names in online entrepreneurship today. You’ll also hear from the queen of personal finance, Jean Chatzky, about how she built her personal brand.

While those talks will be more motivational in nature, on the technical side of things, you can learn beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons in:

  • SEO
  • Email Marketing
  • Social Media
  • WordPress
  • Self-Publishing
  • Content Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Podcasting
  • Freelance Writing

View the full list of over 40 sessions (plus even more sessions) you can attend, including sessions from big names in new media like David Siteman Garland, from Rise to the Top, and Robert Pagliarini, author of The Other Eight Hours.

#FinCon13 Flash Sale and Special Offer for PT Money Readers

I have no doubt that by the time October gets here we’ll have #FinCon13 sold out (500 strong). But I want to make sure that you understand that I want YOU there. As part of my final push for ticket sales I’m offering a 2 day flash sale, where ticket prices are reduced to early bird pricing.

The flash sale will take place August 22nd and 23rd. During this time, the price for the conference will be $179 (reduced from $249). This is a full-access pass that comes with entry into all of the sessions, meals, and parties.

As a special offer to PT Money readers (those brand new to running an online business and/or non-financial bloggers), I’m offering an additional 50% off this price. To get the additional 50% off, purchase your ticket under the flash sale and forward me your receipt along with a little bit about you and your reason for coming to the conference. I will then send you the 50% back over PayPal.

Go Virtual and Get All the Sessions

If attending in person is simply not an option, yet you still want to have access to all of the sessions, you are in luck. We record all of the sessions (except a few keynotes) and make them available to anyone who purchases a virtual pass to the conference. The virtual pass will be available for $59 during the flash sale.

Okay, that’s my final pitch. I hope to see you in St. Louis this Fall. For more information about FinCon visit
