GKIC Marketer Of The Year And Much Much More…

A Report from the 2010 Glazer-Kennedy SuperConference

I just got back from the 2010 Glazer-Kennedy SuperConference in Dallas, Texas.  It was another four days of intense learning and powerful networking and as usual, it was great to see old friends and meet new ones.

At the 2009 GKIC SuperConference, I had the opportunity to be a presenter and this year my SuperConference participation continued with me leading a marketing round table and my company exhibiting for the first time ever.

For two hours I hosted a number of packed marketing round tables on the topic of “increasing conversion” – can you find me in the pic?

Many thanks to the hundreds of SuperConference attendees who stopped by and visited us during exhibit hours.  It was humbling to hear so many CopyDoodles success stories and get so many video testimonials!

And a very special congratulations to the following ten individuals who became CopyDoodles customers and won our Mastermind Experience Contest, which includes a one-day mastermind experience and attending a Philadelphia Phillies game with me in a private V.I.P. suite in July.

Dan and Carla Kennedy stopped by to say hi to my wife Becky and I at the booth.

During the exhibit, we showed for the first time ever, the brand new CopyDoodles® Access Club.  Our fans are calling this “CopyDoodles 2.0” and it is indeed the future of all things CopyDoodles!

This exciting new advancement will allow existing and future CopyDoodles customers to access all our powerful, attention-grabbing content –  even faster and easier than EVER BEFORE!  This includes CopyDoodles, CopyComics, CopyFonts, CopyFlash, and our innovative CopyGenerators.

You will be hearing more the CopyDoodles Access Club over the next few weeks as we begin to roll it out, so stay tuned.

There are two things that made the 2010 SuperConference truly memorable for me.  The first has to do with the amazing generosity of SuperConference attendees and Bill and Karen Glazer.  In December of 2009, the GKIC world lost a master marketer and member when my friend and GKIC-Philly chapter member Eric Paul lost his battle to cancer.

It was just two years ago Eric attended the 2008 SuperConference and predicted (and I agreed) he would be a future GKIC Marketer of the Year.  Unfortunately life threw a curveball and Eric is no longer with us.  He left behind four beautiful young children.

At the SuperConference, my friend Darin Spindler, created an emotional video and attendees donated over $10,000 to help Eric’s family as they deal this their loss.  It was amazing to see a line of hundreds of attendees as they turned in their contribution forms.

On a more upbeat note, GKIC-Philly member and my Elite Experience Mastermind member, Charlie McDermott, won the title of the 2010 GKIC Marketer of the Year!  It was during our February Elite Experience Mastermind meeting that our group suggested Charlie enter the contest and being a man of massive action Charlie accepted the challenge and won the entire contest!

This is an amazing accomplishment for Charlie, especially since he’s only been a GKIC member since the fall of 2008.  Congratulations to Charlie and his team for their impressive presentation at the 2010 GKIC SuperConference!

And finally, I want to thank all the GKIC-Philly chapter members who attended the SuperConference (and stayed up late to get this photo).

    Great recap of the SuperConference, Mike! And I agree with you about the two most memorable moments!

    Yes it was a great conference. I never got a chance to say hi before I had to leave the conference early and I missed a lot of things. I’m glad to hear about the money raised for Eric’s family. Thanks for the great recap Mike!
