Ses Recaps Day 1-2 Charity IM Party ROCKED!

Posted by

I am getting a ton of messages from people who want to meet up for dinner or lunch or what not. I am pretty easy to find and I like to just go with the flow of the conference. During the conference you will be able to find me either at the tables outside the conference hall or in the expo hall depending on the days. In the Expo hall I will most likely be near the Best Of The Web Booth as that is usually the hub of networking in the expo hall. I would love to chat with you about what you are doing if you see me feel free to introduce yourself and pull me a side for a bit. I don’t normally schedule any static events that are not open to everyone because normally we roll with a pretty big entourage and grab food/drinks all together so unless you want to buy for all its best you just roll with us ;)

We got into San Jose Sunday night and had a great time at the Fairmont hotel bar. Lots of people were trickling in including my friend Marcus Tandler who just got in from Germany. I was laughing so hard at Marcus’s lime green suitcase when he arrived and had to take a photo:

Then Marcus called me out saying how my AuctionAds shirt matched his lame suitcase…. Funny stuff.

Anyway on Sunday night people retired pretty early.

Monday morning woke up had some breakfast with Dillsmack then went over to the conference hall to register. Got all that taken care of then sat down at a table and started hanging out. Before long we had a bunch of people in the industry stopping by saying hi or whatever and had some really awesome discussions with people in the industry. Its really great to see all these people move on from SEO to build great quality services/sites.

For lunch I met with the ShoeMoney Tools board of advisors and we discussed a lot of the future items for the project…. We came up with several new tool ideas that we will be incorporating within the next couple weeks.

After lunch headed back to the hotel to freshen up a bit and found lots of old friends down in the hotel lobby area.

So then onto one of the most anticipated SEO/Internet Marketing events of the year the IM Charity event. This was public dinner and then a open bar. The dinner was unreal. One of the best steaks I have ever had. Then open bar until midnight which everyone had a blast. I think the event raised a ton of money for their causes. Here are my pics from the event:

    Shoe, you’re slipping… a whole slew of pictures with no logo’d shirt… Such a waste of good advertising space :) Oh well, looks like fun.

  2. Craig

    HOLY SHIT! I wasn’t gonna bother commenting, but Layne from!

    WOW! She’s so hot I had to show my wife (Who agrees by the way.)

    Marcus suitcase color is lime green. so where is your suitcase. what is the color of your suitcase.

  4. Kashif

    Marcus suitcase color = jeremy tshirt color

    so jeremy suitcase color should be the Tshirt color of jeremy that is black color.

    Maybe you can monetize the lime green suitcase. Maybe if eBags has the suitcase? Increase it even more and have a Lime Green Suitcase Challenge. Winner gets a matching lime green t-shirt!

    Or we can ust look for the hot chick getting her picture taken…should be pretty easy to find u that way too dude.

    Is that Greg Boser being a bad influence on you?
    Or did you not inhale?

    UnderArmour top = healthy
    Fags = Not so healthy.

    (fag = uk speak for cigarette).

    off-topic: i like your new design shoe except that now we can’t reply to other’s comments like it was on the old design with nested comments. If this could be added, it would be great

    I’d fit in well with the “Anti-hair” club :D

    Actually, the lime color suitcase isn’t so lame as it’s easy to spot when you have to get your luggage at the airport. My luggage is lame because it looks like all the other luggage. lol

    Is it just the angle of the pic or does it look like you slipped Susan’s blouse off her shoulder? ;-) and you got a pretty good grip on both the ladies, but I don’t blame ya ;-)

    Looks like your having a great time. In the Gallery the chick who has the shirt that says on the front “I’m a tool” then on the back “Use me” is great lol. !!

  11. Craig

    quite strange to see pictures of you in a normal non-logo shirt, must have been a dress code event.

  12. Reid

    I envy you shoe! It looks like you have a great time, learn some stuff, and ultimately get to interact with a lot of people, that has to be one of the best jobs in the world!!!

    DaveN and Todd Friesen (oilman) two of the nicest guys with two of the most legendary quotes:

    DaveN : If it smells like shit chances are it probably is shit

    oilman : 100,000 bloggers can’t be wrong when commenting on the practise of blog spam….

    Nice to see you guys out of suits!

  14. Big Ben Patton

    As sad as that luggage was in the picture I bet its safe and besides that no one would want to take it. It stands out like a lemon and is not going to do anyone any fashion favors as is.

  15. DonnaB

    Photos you shared here make the conference look quite interesting. I missed how many people were there. Maybe I read too fast.
    Bet that suitcase is easy to find at airports and no one else wants to have an outfit that matches!

    @linkbuildingblog It’s a battle of the suits vs the goons. The goons tend to be the real seo’s while the suits are full of it.
