About the Blog
When I launched this blog in 2008, it covered “Virtual Events, Virtual Worlds, Virtual Tradeshows, Virtual Meetings and more” – hence the name I gave it, “It’s All Virtual.”
Fast forward several years later – and while I still cover virtual events (I now call them “online events,” actually), the subject matter on this blog has expanded to cover everything from social media to product marketing to, well, just about anything. So make yourself comfortable and stay for a while – I hope you enjoy it.

I’ve written a book, “Generate Sales Leads With Virtual Events.” My goal with the book is to help marketers leverage virtual events to achieve “accelerated lead generation”, where you generate leads and engage with them (in real-time) simultaneously.
