For those of you in the local Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, and Venice beach areas, I will be speaking at an event Tuesday night, along with Elmer Thomas and Andy Sorcini, which will focus on using social media to get traffic to your web site.

OK, the event is titled… How to Grow Your Site’s Traffic and it’s being held in Santa Monica, California.

I’ll be there before 7pm and plan to stay late to talk with those that have questions. You can lave comments below if you have anything to discuss.

Date: Tuesday, April 29, 2008
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Location: Edgemar Center for the Arts
2437 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90405

The format:
7:00 PM – meet and greet
7:30 PM – panel discussions
9:00 PM – OPEN BAR mixer (wine & beer)

At this event you’ll learn how to grow your site’s traffic. Mixergy is bringing in three panels of no-nonsense traffic wranglers (that’s me, Andy, and Elmer) to teach you how to grow your site’s audience. If you use what they show you, you’re guaranteed to grow your site’s traffic.

Andy Sorcini & Elmer Thomas will be speaking about Digg and StumbleUpon to get free traffic to your site. I will be speaking about improving your content and learning some simple techniques for producing more attractive content.

Bonus: Open Bar Mixer (Wine, Beer & Snacks)

This is where you get a chance to meet the experts and talk with them one-on-one about your site. This is also a great opportunity to get to know and exchnage ideas with other guests.

You can sign up for the event here. I’m looking forward to being on the platform with these two great local social media gurus.

See you in Santa Monica at 7 pm!
