It’s almost that time again, PubCon in Vegas! Figured I’d post the discount codes for those that look for them each year.
If you’ve never been to PubCon, do yourself a favor and try it. It’s Vegas, so that makes it worth the trip, but the business you walk away with is unlike any other trade show in our market.

We (LinkWorth) will have a booth, so stop by booth #15 and say ‘hi’. We will have a keg on the first day of the expo hall. Not sure on the time, but more than likely after noon. Swing by and grab a beer or 4.
We here at LinkWorth love our Dallas Mavericks and wish them a very warm congratulations on their NBA Championship victory!!! If you’re a local Dallasite, go see the parade at Victory Park tomorrow…June 16th..10am and then hop across the street to the Hyatt and pay us a visit at the International Trader’s Expo!
Go Mavs! Go LinkWorth! Woo-hoo!!!
Also, we have some exciting site upgrades in process…can’t wait to share them with you soon!
We will be making our European trade show debut at SES London next week and we invite all of our Partners and Advertisers who will be in attendance to come by and say hello. It’s a great opportunity for us to meet some of the important members of our community that we don’t get to see on the trade show circuit here in the states…so come on by if you can!
Come by and see us in person next week at SES San Francisco! We’ll be exhibiting…booth 420, where we’ll have luscious, double-padded carpet to ease the pain in your tradeshow-weary feet. We’ll impart yottabytes of SEO knowledge into your already overloaded brains. We’ll talk links.
But perhaps even more importantly…we’re giving away an iPad!
So, swing by and drop off your business cards and register to win. Steve & Dave will be signing autographs and Ron & I will be getting to know the bartenders. Hope to see you there!
Next week is the SES Toronto show and we are looking forward to visiting our neighbors to the North. There are two things we wanted to post regarding the show that can be both beneficial and fun.
Discount Code: 20LINK – use this to get a 20% discount on any conference pass. If you already have your pass, apologies for being late!
LinkWorth Gathering – we have many customers in Canada and if you are attending this show we are planning a little ‘get-together’ on Wednesday June 9th. We’ll be gathering at the Hyatt Hotel bar at 7pm local time. Stop by and let us buy you a drink and then maybe one of the locals can show us a good place to go afterwards. Make sure to follow us on twitter where we’ll be making updates of where we are and how to find us.
Calling all canucks! Is anyone going to SES Toronto next month? Ron and I are going old-school and doing the show ourselves for the first time in a couple of years, so come by and see us if you’re going to be in town. (Or, better yet, give me a shout ahead of time and maybe we can string something together.)
Beyond that, neither one of us has ever been to Toronto and we’re looking for some suggestions on what to do, where to eat, etc. If you’re familiar with that part of the world, let me hear from you!
One of our favorite days at LinkWorth is April 1st, or April Fool’s Day. And when I say “our”, I’m speaking of Matt and I (Ron). Each year we try to out perform our previous year of gags and jokes we play on the staff. This year I am 100% sure we topped all previous April Fool’s Day performances. I’d like to thank our staff for putting up with the full day of non-stop craziness and watch out for next year, because we already have the next 2 years planned out!!!
Let me run down a quick bullet list of what we did yesterday:
We turned LinkWorth into ShrinkWorth by shrink wrapping the entire office
We removed cubical dividing walls in the sales pit creating shared spaces
We snuck keys away from many and moved their cars in the parking lot
We ran video on everyone walking in first thing seeing it all and giving them an early morning blow horn
We ran a looped audio of a sneeze we recorded from Matt Baker, who is the loudest sneezer in the world, through the phones for much of the afternoon
We made a pot of coffee with half a container of sugar in it
We caused our admin backend to appear to be crashed giving errors
We had outsiders tell people they had live snakes in their drawer
We sent fake emails to each Account Manager making them think their biggest client is canceling and complaining about them…and took video of them explaining themselves
As you can see, while it’s not a recognized holiday, there isn’t a lot of work that gets done on April 1 each year. There might be other spur of the moment ideas we put in place that I’m forgetting, but you get the point.
We have lots of pictures and even more video. The pictures are below and the video will be soon, once I figure out how to edit and put it all together in a nice looking format.
LinkWorth will be exhibiting at the Ad:tech conference in San Francisco on April 20-21. We’ll be located at booth #5973, which to most of you, will mean absolutely nothing. I honestly can’t say I’ve ever visited a conference and paid any attention to booth numbers. This is where we’ll be, so if you’re attending, please stop by and ask Robin to sing you her original “Linky” song. She has a great voice and the song is really good too. Also be sure to ask David why they call him “Ace”.
If you have not signed up to attend Ad:tech and want to go, we have a nice little offer for you. Just follow our special link here and you’ll get a $200 discount on a full conference pass. They’re not cheap, so discounts are always great. If the link doesn’t transfer our code, use this:
Ad:tech San Francisco Discount Code: LWADTEC
Just remember…”Have a DrinkWorth with LinkWorth which could lead to InkWorth, and then you’ll wake up in a StinkWorth probably needing a ShrinkWorth.”
