The hubs and I recently attended our first business conference together. We loved it! There is nothing else like being surrounded by thousands of like minded individuals striving to be the best versions of themselves. I personally love conferences! But, the biggest mistake I see people make is that they don’t take action after attending. They get all hyped up and motivated but forget to utilize the conference as the tool it is.
Spoiler alert... after leaving a business conference, you should actually implement what you've learned into your business.
At the conference, you should have networked with intention. For more tips on how to network, Click Here. You hopefully exchanged business cards, phone numbers, and added each other on social media. Keep the conversation going. Stay connected with the community you have been immersed in. Whether you are attending a women’s conference, personal development conference, or business conference, these are your people. Find the ones that live in close proximity and schedule a follow up. Chances are, these people will help keep you motivated and focused. Follow the hashtag that was used for that conference in order to make sure you are connecting with others that you may have missed at the conference.
1. Go over notes: Review your information.
Now, I want to speak to those that attend Business Conferences primarily. Often times it is 100% like drinking from a firehose. All the information is given, you write furiously, and you’re so excited for the future. You go home with all your new ideas and think: Okay, I have to build an email list, create a landing page, create a giveaway for the landing page, use Canva for the giveaway, download Canva, learn how to use Canva and how to resize pics. Oh wait, I have to learn how to take good quality pics with great lighting for Instagram and post over there at least once a day. Speaking of that, I need to update my bio with my new link tree information. Oh, and I need to start writing articles on LinkdIn. But, I need to have a podcast first, so that I have information to share over there. Which reminds me that I don’t even know how to record a podcast and I need to order one of those mics which plugs into my phone. Also, I need to learn YouTube so that I can start creating some coaching videos to build out my following and create a course. Sound familiar? I have been there. In all honesty, it’s something I fight on a daily basis. All of this is important to business. All of these are crucial marketing platforms. However, as a mighty team of 1 and a part time assistant, I can personally tell you that you can not do all the things at once. You have to break it up into a plan and this goes back to what will deliver the most desired results the quickest.
TWELVE WEEK ACTION PLAN
Okay, it's a lot, I know. But, just breath. Go back to the beginning of this post and start there. Work through this step by step until you get to where you want to be.
It’s not nearly as overwhelming when you break it down into bite size pieces.
