In this episode of The Podcast Reporter, we discuss the topic of networking events and whether or not entrepreneurs and startups should attend — either in person or online for a virtual event.
With the lockdown situations easing a bit more and more, it could be possible for us to attend in person the inbound conferences. In this episode, we give an example of my own attendance of the Podcast Movement 2020-Evolutions conference in person prior to the lockdowns and the upcoming Podcast Movement 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee. In this latter event, a ticket will allow you to “attend” in person or virtually (as they will be holding an inbound event and simultaneously online, as well).
As a clear discussion of criteria for determining a good ROI for attending such an event, we include a repurposed episode from a prior podcast called The Struggling Entrepreneur. This repurposed episode is a narration of a prior blog post from Lisa Wells, who maintains focus for getting good results from such an event — and she gives her own personal examples.
Note: after the blog post narration, I deliver some of my own caveats for attending too many networking events — and these are from my own experience earlier in my days as a novice entrepreneur and focusing on podcast conferences and meetings.
I hope that you will find value in this post for your planned “attendance” at scheduled networking events — whether virtual on in person.
Thank you for your attention.
