Cancelled: Judd Boone to Offer Secrets to Online Advertising during the Wells Fargo Vandal Innovations and Enterprise Works Entrepreneur Speaker Series

Wednesday, March 3 2010


This event has been cancelled.

MOSCOW, Idaho – Entrepreneur and University of Idaho alumnus Judd Boone will provide the next lecture in the Wells Fargo Entrepreneur Speaker Series on Thursday, March 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the Idaho Commons Clearwater and Whitewater rooms.

Boone’s presentation, “The Secret in Online Advertising . . . is not to pay for anything!” will cover how to leverage the distribution advertising channels of cost-per-click and cost-per-action to give businesses the advantage in this time of exponential online advertising growth.

Boone graduated from the university in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in business. While attending the university, Boone and a group of fellow students launched Frozenwave Communication, one of the first Web site design shops. Frozenwave Communications has since built hundreds of Web sites and broadcasted the first NCAA football game online. Boone also continued his entrepreneurial endeavors, leveraging the Internet to streamline communication and accelerate sales for large public companies, increasing revenue exponentially.

Boone helped pioneer electronic signatures while working for DocuSign, which saved companies millions in paper costs. Currently, through a combination of his own consulting practice and partnering with interactive agencies Vega Consulting and Resultrix, Boone is helping build Microsoft’s Affiliate Network on a new model of open community and partnerships.

The Wells Fargo Entrepreneur Speaker Series is part of the Vandal Innovation and Enterprise Works (VIEW) program, and is free and open to the public. The speaker series – made possible by the generous support of Wells Fargo, private donors and corporate sponsors – is designed to educate students through the help of successful entrepreneurs.
