Before it even hits the major bookstores nationwide (should be available nationally by Friday or Monday) my fellow entrepreneurial disruption machine (a good thing :)) and spirited founder of Start-up Scramble, Mr. Stephen Douglas just posted a picture on Facebook of the first 30 copies of my new book, “Search Engine Optimization – Second Edition….Your Visual Blueprint to Effective Internet Marketing.” CLICK HERE to order your copy.
Honestly, I haven’t even gotten my hands on an official copy yet, but Stephen was able to score his copies since he will be given them out FREE on Friday night as part of the Northeastern, Pennsylvania Start-up Scramble!
Special thanks to Sandy, Stephanie, and my team @ Wiley Publishing for sending the books to Stephen and making sure that Start-up Scramble attendees are the first ones in the known land to have copies of the books.
FYI – I will be one of the opening night keynotes of the event.
Here is more information about the Start-up Scramble direct from the SUS Web site:
“The StartUp Scramble™ NEPA Challenge kicks-off Friday evening (July 30th) and lasts throughout Sunday (August 1st). We meet at Brennan Hall at the University of Scranton throughout the duration of the weekend to pitch, plan, and launch our startup ventures. Friday night’s meal will be provided (provisions for additional meals depend on our ability to rally local business sponsors–the proverbial “eat what we kill” bootstrap approach!) and snacks are provided throughout the weekend. We open Friday night with dinner, keynotes, and immediately jump into venture concept pitches. Proposed ventures may be business, social service, or artistic ventures and provide a component of sustainability, scalability, and community building. The Scramble concludes Sunday evening with teams pitching and/or demo-ing their ventures to a group of select panelists. Teams receive critical feedback from panelists and can be awarded anything from seed grants and mentorship to strategic introductions and professional services. But more importantly, all participants connect with and are welcomed into the growing network of StartUp Scramble change-agents.”
Pretty cool if I say so myself!
I’m happy to participate and only wish I could stay for the entire weekend (and maybe even pitch some of my own business ideas) but I’ll only be doing a short cameo on Friday night (probably for about 1 hour) and heading on family vacation Saturday morning.
If you live close enough to Pennsylvania to drop what you are doing and attend the NEPA Start-up Scramble you should!!!!
