“2020 Is The Year Of The Brand.”
Join James Van Elswyk, Nick Shackelford, and 40+ of the most innovative eComm advertisers, publishers, and business owners for Geek Out in L.A. — the only marketing event where we talk shop and form long-lasting business relationships.
If you’re looking to set yourself apart from your competitors and create a brand that is so beloved, people will place flowers outside of your store when you pass, then this event will show you how.
There’s no denying it — branding is king.
Branding is the key component that can take an average product from $50K a month to a one-of-a-kind product that consistently brings in $300K, $400K, and even $500K per month.
That’s why our next Geek Out in L.A. we’ve invited some of the top brand builders in eComm who are in the data ditches and creative trenches, testing and seeing what’s working right now.
They’re going to teach and share their knowledge on what they’ll be working on in 2020 and how you can implement their exact strategies so you may enjoy a slice of the $4.9 trillion eComm pie.
everything from merchant accounts to upsells, taught by click-slinging gangsters.

Geek Out was born out of curiosity from our two founders, James Van Elswyk and Nick Shackelford. Their Geek Out mission is to learn more, get better, and meet more like-minded eComm gangsters. They couldn’t find that type of event anywhere.
So they created it.
James Van Elswyk is all things media. He got his start as a super affiliate and lead gen specialist who switched to eCommerce when he saw the crazy amount of new money from consumers via direct to consumer brands.
Nick Shackelford was born a brand. He’s known throughout the world as one of the leading experts when it comes to building and scaling eComm brands via Facebook. He has already crushed top brands such as: Pup Sox, Diff Eyewear, Snow, Posh Peanut, Theragun, Vessi, and tons more.
*Keep in mind this event is not “cheap” and we don’t allow just anyone into the Geek Out Family. That’s why when you apply, you’ll receive a phone call within the next 24 to 48 hours to see if you qualify.
As always, our guarantee is simple. If you are not completely satisfied with the “laptops learning” Geek Out event in LA, then we will return your investment, every single penny.
As you can imagine, we’re not swimming in green and sipping chardonnay with the earnings from these events. To be honest, we make way more money running our own businesses.
We simply like doing these events and creating lifelong connections — which always comes in handy when the going gets tough (as it always does).

“PayCertify has graciously sponsored our Geek Out LA event. When it comes to running eComm at a high volume, the last thing you want is your bank freezing your money (especially when it’s scale time baby).
That’s why I choose PayCertify for my merchant needs. Fast, responsive, and detailed, these guys have saved me a sh*t load of time and money. I could not recommend them enough.”
If it’s anything like our event in Brooklyn, then we plan on selling out sooner than later.
With that said, spots are extremely limited. So, if you’ve been telling yourself, “I’ve been meaning to get to a Geek Out event” then we’d highly suggest you make it out to this Geek Out in L.A.
We can’t say much right now, but let’s just say we have a few surprises that we know you’re going to love.
Nothing will be left on the table in Los Angeles. No secrets. No holding things “close to the chest.” It’s open, real, and raw.
This is 2 full days of hands-on learning on how to fuel your eCommerce brands so they double, triple, and maybe even quadruple your sales from the previous year.
But before you apply, you must abide by the three most important rules:
Please note: this Geek Out LA will not be live-streamed. This is an in-person event only. Why? Because going to an event is more valuable as a business owner, and we want to support the best practices.
