If you’re a podcast fan or a comedy buff, it’s a fair bet you’ve listened to at least a few episodes of WTF with Marc Maron. Maybe you’ve tuned in to hear from Maron’s guests, an ever-growing club that has encompassed everyone from his fellow comedians to President Barack Obama. Maybe you’re there for Maron’s own raw-edged, rigorously honest, painfully funny storytelling style. Or maybe you came to WTF after seeing Marc on screen, appearing on Louie, Girls, or his own IFC series, Maron. But no matter how many hours he’s spent in your earbuds, you may not have heard Marc talk about what he’ll be sharing this October at Leadpages’ second annual Converted conference. That’s right: on October 18, we’re welcoming Marc Maron to the Converted stage as our keynote speaker. And although there’s no doubt he’ll be funny, he’s definitely not just there to provide comic relief. If you’re as excited about this as we are, we’ll wait here while you go grab your Converted tickets at our Summer Special price: [cta-box] Marc first started his podcast in 2009, at which point he was primarily known as a comedian. Today, WTF with Marc Maron has a permanent home in the iTunes Top 10 and a global following of millions of monthly listeners. That kind of climb to success doesn’t happen without a lot of hard work and smart decisions, and in his keynote presentation, Marc will open up about what it took to pull it off behind the scenes. You can expect to hear about:
- How you go from founding a podcast in your garage to interviewing the President of the United States of America in your garage
- The strategies and tactics Marc used to turn his podcast into a worldwide phenomenon
- Marc’s mentors and the lessons he learned along the way
- When Marc knew it was time to monetize his content, and how he did it
This might just be the most entertaining presentation on content-based business growth you’ll ever hear. Of course, Marc’s keynote address doesn’t stand alone.
