Elite Retreat
Its officially open for sign up! The 2008 Elite Retreat will be taking place on April 3-4th and will be one of the first events to take place in the brand new Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco (opening in Mid February).For this years event we have quite a line up of leaders.

Aaron Wall
Aaron Wall – Aaron wrote the book on SEO, literally!. He has been a leader at the Elite Retreat since its first event in 2006. Aaron’s in-depth knowledge of SEO is very astonishing. What makes Aaron such fit for the elite retreat is that he is not afraid to speak his mind and tell you how things really work. From each of the previous events we had comments from people saying they thought they knew some neat tricks with SEO until they heard Aaron speak and show them how it really works. Key Search Engine engineers like Matt Cutts are always keeping a close tab on what Aaron is saying and they are frequently mentioning Aaron in there public speaking and on their blogs.

Andy LiuAndy Liu Startup Expert Andy Liu has quickly become a major player in Silicon Valley. Andy made a big splash with his popular BuddyTV website. Andy not only jumped into a already saturated market, raised money, then not only competed, but started to be a massive force in that industry. Andy is a very well connected guy and has been a very valued friend and consultant to me in business dealings. I have no doubt Elite Retreat attendees will highly benefit from his advice.

Neil PatelNeil Patel – When it comes to social media one name always stands out – Neil Patel. He has been a top 20 digger and stumbler for years. Neil is also an expert at other social media sites like Newsvine, Reddit, and Del.icio.us, and for years he has been charging clients $5,000 – $20,000 for social media services. Neil is the Internet Rockstar’s SEO/SEM/SMO with huge name clients like GM, NBC, Samsung, AOL, Techcrunch, Mashable, and Guy Kawasaki just to name a few. I think everyone takes a lot away from talking to Neil about how to leverage Social Media for their business.

Brian ClarkBrian Clark – Conversion expert Brian Clark is Probably known best for his award winning blog @ copyblogger.com but Brian is also quite an expert at lead acquisition and conversion. Brian is a expert at converting visitors into sales.

We will also have other guest/keynote speakers that will be announced soon.

There are only 35 spots available (28 left as of today) so book now!

  1. […] announced earlier this evening the date and speaker line-up for Elite Retreat 2008 – San […]

  2. I pity companies that pay $15000 for a digg frontpage… A few hours worth of research and you can do that for free. That is quite a niche he has going there. =)

  3. That $15,000 worth of Digg traffic has to pay off and from what I’ve heard, it usually doesn’t. But I guess Neil wouldn’t have an Amex black card if he didn’t know what he was doing.

  4. $5,000 – $15,000 fee per Digg Frontpage? Wow. I didn’t know big companies would pay that much for a Digg Frontpage. Anyway, props to the great line-up Shoe! I sure hope I could join you. 😀

  5. Didn’t you guys have a contest last year for a free scholarship to Elite Retreat?

  6. I would love to attend but my blog isn’t quite to the level that I can spend that much on it. Hopefully I’ll be able to hit the next one!

  7. wow $5-$15k for a front page digg seems like a bit much. Couldn’t that money be used for other cheaper advertising techniques?

  8. I’d like to talk with Neil and find out exactly what it is he does to get that Amex Black card. That’s a schweet perk. Maybe if I can earn an extra $5,000 before the middle of March I’ll get the chance.

  9. Neil is making $15,000 for a post, it is the companies that don’t know what they are doing. =)

  10. […] Li wrote a wonderful overview of my wife’s blog meetup speech. Jeremy Schoemaker announced the next Elite Retreat, which is on April 3rd and 4th. With Brian Clark speaking, I feel more like […]

  11. I literally live like 30 minutes away but I cant afford the $5,000 right now because I’m going to India for 2 weeks in Feb.

    Maybe next year.

    Do you plan to do it again in San Fran?!

  12. A lot of companies would rather pay $15k for a Digg frontpage than spend those hours researching since their time is worth more than that and could be better spent on something else.

  13. Once you have Neil’s reputation, they do. They simply know what they’re paying for in this case and it’s only common sense to assume that Neil is doing a great job since otherwise, people would definitely complain and they are doing quite the opposite.

  14. Neil’s service is aimed at large companies which, believe me, are spending a lot more than $15k on advertising, Digg is just one small variable in the equation 🙂

  16. I can’t attend this one, I hope you will have another one later in the new year. Or are you planning to have one a year like Pubcon?

  17. Wow, If I had that amount of money I wouldn’t mind joining at all. Hopefully next year I can attend it if possible. Good Luck and Have Fun to anyone who’s going.

  18. I’ve had a couple of server crashes thanks to Digg. I’m hoping these major companies have top of the line hardware, or else paying 15k for a down server is pointless…

  19. Sounds like it will be an awesome gathering. Although I an nowhere near being able to afford going to something like this, and not even sure if I could take in enough to justify it anyway, it would be awesome to go and learn what I could.

    Jeremy, do you plan to ever do a “a year later” type updates on those that attend/ed? It would be cool to see what people have been able to do and how far they have come because of it. Of course it would also be great advertising as well ;).

  20. You probably can’t continue to charge that kind of money though if your services aren’t making an impact for the companies paying for it.

  21. Check out my 9-month later review at http://www.eliteretreatreview.com. Hope you take this constructively, but your comments don’t make you sound like someone who is committed to success or even believes that they can achieve it. Why can’t you take advantage of this knowledge too?

  22. 5k…..damn it…im thinking…its allot but that line up is insane!..maybe this is what credit cards were created for.

  23. Man. For a 21 year old, he’s doing great. The only thing that arouses my curiosity is companies would pay that much to be on the front page for only several hours! Neil must be really really good!

  24. […] appears that many the top dog A listers will be there. Schoemaker announced on a recent blog post that registrations are now open, “Its officially open for sign up! The 2008 Elite Retreat […]

  25. Perhaps next year I’ll be making enough to afford this. What a line up, All in the same room. How the juice will flow!!!

  26. That are really top marketers in industry! I love Aaron SEO BOOK, it helps me sooo much with SEO!

  27. I’m dubious. It probably wouldn’t cost that much to pay a few people just to digg you using different email accounts. And even if you got caught, that would probably get you more publicity too.

  29. ok for those who haven’t attended any of the Elite Retreat Conferences then you must. it could really help you.
