IZEAFest Day 1: Tweets Galore and So Much More

Posted by on September 12, 2008 at 8:19 pm.

Call me tired, but instead of detailing the first day of IZEAFest, I’m just gonna share live-tweets and the video streams. I’ll also provide a quick report card on the sessions:
– ShoeMoney Keynote: A-
– Improving Your Content: C
– Big Money Bloggers Panel: A
– Growing Traffic: B
– What Advertisers Want: B
– IZEA Innovations: A
– Overall: A-/B+

The IZEA Innovations unveiled were many, but I particularly liked SocialSpark Causes (Blog for Charity), Smart Blog Rolls, Sponsored Blog Networks (easy-button for large-scale, targeted blog advertising), Affiliate/CPA Posts and CloudShout (real-time presence/communication & one-click blog apps) — including private alpha keys under our chairs. I’ll provide more detail on CloudShout after I’ve had more time to play with it, but Tony Hung did a good job of capturing the potential of CloudShout — imagine an iPhone Apps or Facebook Apps platform, built for your blog or the whole blogosphere.

As I often do for conferences, I decided to award a Day 1 Golden KangaRua to ShoeMoney — delivering great knowledge pulling double-duty for Keynote and the Big Money Bloggers panel. Congrats Jeremy…don’t we need to talk about your next project 😉
OK…OK…it’s self-serving, but I also gotta give major KangaRuas to IZEA’s dev team — the team looked like zombies (worse than the Facebook kind), but their innovations rawked!
