Just wanted to wrap up the top model series and let you know one of my favorite takeaways had nothing to do with the event, but the days in which they chose to have the event. It was scheduled from a Thursday to a Wednesday.
The beauty of being in charge of my business and working from home is that my days can be shaped how I want them to be. Yes there are deadlines, blog posts to write, discussions to participate in and the list goes on. Yet because I know when I'm most creative, most motivated I'm able to plan my days accordingly. Work doesn't have to begin on Mondays at 9 or end on Fridays at 5 and this teleseminar schedule reminded me of that.
Takeaway #5: Choose a schedule that works for you
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.
Here's a Recap of the Previous Takeaways:
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).
Takeaway #2: Give it away and offer the replay for a small fee and then give some more away! Also join with others!
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.
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!
