Blogworld Expo 2009 – Taking Over IZEA

I got to the Blogworld Expo show floor early today and discovered the IZEA booth completely empty. Turns out that Ted and Ashley thought the show floor opened at 11 on the last day. That was of course, not the case and as result, there was nobody manning their booth.

Not wanting IZEA to lose any potential business (and because it would make for a funny video), Joe Tech and I decided to take over their booth until Ted and Ashley showed up. I think we did a pretty good job convincing show attendees to join IZEA services like Sponsored Tweets. However, the booth next to us didn’t seem very happy about me stealing their customers by throwing IZEA t-shirts at people they were talking to.

Hopefully, IZEA appreciate what Joe and I did. Our bill to them is in the mail! 😛

  1. So you are covering every spot who is sponsoring you or giving you money.

    First Market Leverage and now Izea.

    Jeremy is also coming to this or not ?

    1. I think he will take each and every booth out there if he keeps this pace 😀

      lol…perhaps John just covered booth that he really like..of course booth that he could make money from.. 😀

      We’ve yet to see Jeremy from shoemoney in video…

      1. Yes no update post on his blog as well. Seems to me that he is not coming to this.

        I wonder how he can miss this one.

  2. You seems blend well there John. 😛

    1. No kidding! If you didn’t know better, you’d think John always manned the IZEA booth.

  8. EarningStep says:

    lol… it’s a funny stuff to tell us john… i wonder what happened with IZEA , why they missed a great event like blogworld….

    1. Joe Tech says:

      IZEA only missed that first 1/2 hour or so that we stood in for them.

      1. That was freaking hilarious. Did the people from the other booths around you actually start getting annoyed?

        I bet the IZEA crew was pretty embarrassed they missed the start time. At least you and John were there to cover for them.

  9. John, it looks like you go to this shows just to get into trouble.

  10. Hey John,

    I am sure that they will appreciate your concern. I am felling bad that missed the Blog World Expo.

    But I will be a part of it next year for sure.

    Thanks for giving us every information about the Expo.
