Learning from Top Models: Takeaway #4 – Remain plugged in throughout the call whether it’s live or pre-recorded, especially for a virtual conference.

Twitter I know during a teleseminar you've got a lot going on as you present. However what if you tweeted special nuggets and tips during your event. How could this happen?

During the "Super Business Models" conference barefoot_exec tweeted throughout the teleseminar by providing nuggets and tips she got from the current speaker. This in turn encouraged all of us as participants to tweet what we were getting out of the presentation as well. Remember takeaway #3? Well since we were following each other we could see what everyone else was tweeting as well. It became an informal tweetchat. The interaction alone made this teleseminar special.

Back to barefoot_exec and her tweets. I don't know if this conference was her brainchild however in my mind I'd given her all of the credit because she remained plugged in throughout the event. And these weren't scheduled tweets either. How do I know? Well when I responded regarding how she does her videos she immediately responded back and offered a great tip. Curious?

Using this system was beneficial for both participants and presenters. As we tweeted about the event anyone on our list could have easily become intrigued and checked out the event for themselves. In fact, someone did reply to a tweet who knew nothing about the conference. I'm sure she signed up and joined the teleconference. Don't you just love a win-win.

And don't just limit the tweets to pre-event promotions, encourage them to tweet during the call as well. If you cannot personally tweet yourself. Call in your virtual troops and have them tweet your nuggets and tips. Little Secret: You can even provide them with the nuggets and tips prior to the call. The main point is to be engaged during the call since you never know when someone is going to retweet you or respond to something you've tweeted. Staying plugged in keeps everyone engaged just like being together in one room.

Takeaway #4: Remain plugged in throughout the call whether it's live or pre-recorded, especially for a virtual conference. By getting minute by minute tweets I felt as though we were all in the same room. I'm not sure you can tell, but this got me really excited. Not only did I walk away with valuable information and encouragement, but I got a whole blog series out of the deal. You just never know where your blessings will come from or what they'll look like. You just have to be ready for when they do!

This series was written to help spark ideas in how you can improve your online event planning. And if you’ve never done an online event now is the best time to do so. Use the takeaways to improve how you do your online events.

TwitterEver thought to encourage your teleseminar participants to tweet about your event? How about during your event?

For the "Super Business Models" teleseminar we were encouraged to tweet about the event and use a special #keyword when mentioning the event. What happened afterward was totally amazing and I almost missed it.

The first 2 nights I didn't get what was going on. But on Saturday night I had an Ah Ha! when barefoot_exec tweeted to follow everyone who tweeted #supbizmodels by going to blastfollow.com. Ingenious! I immediately tweeted about the event and went to blastfollow.com to add all of the participants who participated in the event to my Twitter account.

Can you guess what happened when I began following other biz owners like myself with similar interest? They followed me back. In a very short period of time I gained almost a hundred followers and that was after the first night of using blastfollow.com.

Using this system was beneficial for both participants and presenters. As we tweeted about the event anyone on our list could have easily become intrigued and checked out the event for themselves. In fact, someone did reply to a tweet who knew nothing about the conference. I'm sure she signed up and joined the teleconference. Don't you just love a win-win.

And don't just limit the tweets to pre-event promotions, encourage them to tweet during the call as well.

Takeaway #3: Encourage participants to tweet your event and provide a keyword using the hash or # sign in front. This will make it easy to identify everyone when searching from blastfollow.com. As a result more people learn about your event and see it over and over making others want to get registered. And those who've tweeted now have the opportunity to engage with others with the same interest and gain followers themselves.

Learning from Top Models: Takeaway #2 – Join with someone and give the event away, offer the replay for a nominal fee

A few weeks ago I participated in a phenomenal conference for women biz owners. I got some great takeaways to help you with your next online event. Each takeaway is based on my observation of the event itself as opposed to the information offered. I noticed immediately the line-up of presenters. The event was 6 days and there were 2 superbizmodels each day and can you believe this event was absolutely FREE! I couldn't believe it either. As I mentioned in the previous post Carrie Wilkerson founder of the Barefoot Executive and Nicole Dean of EasyPLR were among the many influential women presenting at this teleconference. The entire event was 6 days and 90 minutes of valuable information that you could immediately apply following the event. It far exceeded my expectation and once again it was absolutely FREE! The only thing I had to do was register by providing my name and email address. It was just like when Oprah was giving out the FREE grilled KFC sandwich coupons except when you arrived at the restaurant you not only got what you ordered but you got something extra on the side!

 
 

Takeaway #2:

  • Give it away and offer the replay for a small fee and then give some more away!

    The conference was free and if you wanted the recordings they were a nominal fee starting at $47 plus additional bonuses. This is beneficial for both the presenters and folks like me listening in. The presenters gain new contacts on their list in addition to adding more people to they're loyal following. Just imagine, after hearing your story, quality information, and valuable tips your opt-in box will be going crazy and so will your shopping cart as people are looking to gain more, more, more of what you have to offer. This is one of the reasons I'm so fascinated with the internet, technology and how we're able to share more and more each day. Teleseminars, webinars, informational products all allow us to be everywhere at the same time giving the same message improving the lives of others. For your next online event serve up a free sandwich offer by surrounding the buy with much FREE!

  • Join with others!

    Whether you're just starting out or have many years of experience create a joint venture with other biz owners who are also looking to do an online event geared towards a common audience.

     

    Think of how many people you'd be able to reach when you combine your list with theirs. And if you're just getting started imagine the list you'll build by presenting at this one event. Joint ventures are a great way to kick start your online business. There's alot that can be accomplished when you form a team of super business owners with a common goal. You'll reach far more people than you've ever imagined. People like to get information and buy from those they feel comfortable with and what better way to make someone feel comfortable than to be referred by someone they already know and trust.

This series was written to help spark ideas in how you can improve your online event planning. And if you've never done an online event now is the best time to do so. Use the takeaways to improve how you do your online events. This is a 5 part series so stay tuned for Takeaway #3.

Learning from Top Models: Takeaway #1 – Schedule your teleseminar or webinar to accommodate the masses

For the past few days I've been participating in a phenomenal conference called "Super Business Models." I got a lot of great takeaways for promoting my business and just knowing I'm not alone in this quest of work at home women was great. Surely I know I'm not, however it often feels that way. In addition I got some great takeaways for you, the business owner, on implementing online events or ways to improve your current strategy. I'm sure the collaborators of this event may not have even realized this to be an additional asset for participants and then again maybe they did.

This was my very first time participating and listening to this group of women. One of the most familiar to some is Carrie Wilkerson, the Barefoot Executive. I'd seen her name on different blogs, however I hadn't taken the time to see what she was all about. Nicole Dean of EasyPLR I'd become familiar with from a blog of a blog and have become quite intrigued with the content offered at www.easyplr.com.

I can't remember who's newsletter I was reading when I saw this event, but it was in two different ones. The first time I was curious because it said it was free. I signed up and then got the schedule. I noticed they were doing two calls per day and the first one was at 5am my time. I thought this is ridiculous who's going to make that time. I immediately unsubscribed.

Then a day or so later I got another newsletter and it said they were offering two time slots, one for those in the UK and one for the USA. I had a quick DUH! moment and understood why I was seeing a 5am scheduled call. It would be 10am in the UK. The USA call would be later in the evening, 9pm for me. I went back to the site and registered again.

Takeaway #1: Schedule two calls to accommodate our friends on the other side of the world. Make it known the call will be replayed a second time for USA participants. In fact you may find USA participants on that first early call as well, just like I was on day one of the teleconference. (Yeah I know what I said)
