No eBay Live but we Know how to Party!

John Donahoe in his Ivory eBay Tower has cancelled eBay Live for 2009 but some folks know how to party and don't need Live as an excuse. So with backing/sponsorship from www.WsRadio.com, Brainfood Syndication and Voicemarketing.com (the radio companies that produce eBay Radio and more on wsradio.com) and the leadership of Lee Mirabal (Griff's self-styled "Long Suffering Co-host) and eBay radio associate editor and eBay personality eBetsy, there's gonna be a party!

The "organizing team" of Lee and eBetsy have arranged very reasonably priced rooms at the Rio Hotel ($69 a might for a 2 room suite) and are lining up "presenters" now (so that makes this an educational expense for your business according to my accounting principles...and there for DEDUCTIBLE? Check with YOUR tax professionals for the final word but I'm writing it off if I can convince hubby to go).

THIS just in from eBetsy -
You know the dates -- June 24-25 -- and of course you know our destination: Las Vegas! We sign the contract for the Rio hotel on Friday. Now it's time to show us the money, please, by registering @ http://www.brainfoodradio.com/vegas. We'll be capping this event at 250 attendees, and it is strictly first come, first served.

Here's the link, again, to register - www.brainfoodradio.com/vegas!. Registration is a mere $50 (ebay live last year was $75 and went up after May 1,2008 so you're getting a bargain this year!)

Nice blog post. People who are interested in doing business in eBay or any other eCommerce channel must read good articles like this one. However, reading the article and practicing the information is a different thing. You can ask an eBay consultant how to increase the online sales and do exactly those suggested things to see the result.
