On the heels of selling out in 2012, marketing guru Steve Olsher hosts the second annual Internet Prophets Live!, based on his acclaimed book of the same name. The co-founder of Liquor.com and an online pioneer since 1993—well before the invention of the GIF—Olsher offers all attendees face-to-face time with his lineup of noted business experts, structured networking, and hands-on implementation sessions. The three-day workshop focuses on the “Three T’s” of online marketing: Technology, Traffic, and Team. A few speakers are outlined below; see the full agenda for additional information.

Brendon Burchard: A bestselling author and motivational speaker to motivational speakers, Burchard tackles the topic of site traffic in his keynote presentation on leveraging existing software and monetizing knowledge.
Joel Comm: Comm keeps his finger on the future’s pulse with a comprehensive and constantly evolving understanding of social media and mobile applications. Host and producer of the online reality show The Next Internet Millionaire, he aims to uncover the profitable side of new technology.
