Live Conferences/Meetings

4 replies
I've read in several places of people that are experiencing great results with holding live conferences or training events with large crowds.

I'm curious if anyone has experience with this, good or bad I'd love to hear your results.

    Giving away a free speech is a GREAT WAY to get new clients and brand yourself as the marketing expert. Where in the world can you get over 50-100 business owners (in one room and at one time) where they will not question your legitimacy and potentially write you a check all at the same time?

    You don't have to "sell them" on you.....they automatically know you are the "guru". Public Speaking is a great "branding tool" for your marketing business.

    Success to you,

    I have never personally done it but can say from sitting in an audience, it does work ... I've seen people get some very good results from doing things like this!

      Hey guys, you are right and I couldn't agree with you more, it is a great way to brand yourself and also it is highly effective. The reason why I post this thread is because I'm curious as to how people that hold these conferences or seminars go about marketing the event. I've done a lot of things online as far as marketing, but when I think about marketing an event like this the first thing that pops into my head is traditional old school marketing within a local city.

      Any thoughts?

        I'm attending a 10 hour workshop in a week or so and the way the seminar holders went about promoting this is from what I can see - via a tell a friend script.

        My dad, not incredibly internet savvy felt the need to invite 5 friends when it was an optional selection - believe me, getting an invite from a friend goes a long way in drawing more people to the seminar and it promotes itself.

        Of course you have other forms which include, Craigslist, Gumtree, Forums, Youtube, Flyers, Brochures, etc.
