Kindly supplied by Pier Marketing
At B.I.T.E, we’re all about making the most out of every experience. So check out our top tips on how to market your attendance at
B.I.T.E to make this conference work that little bit harder for you.
CONTENT IS KING
Conferences are content marketing dynamite.
To begin, check-in at the event on your socials. Then tag any relevant hosts, speakers and new business contacts.
Consider a Q&A with one of the speakers or a video presentation (check first!). You could also use Facebook Live to interview a relevant business contact and capture event highlights in your Instagram story.
Also think about the content of the speaker sessions:
GIVE AND TAKE
Yes, conferences are a great opportunity to network, tell people about what you do and potentially get some new leads.
But also take some time to observe, interact and listen to the other businesses at the conference:
We love the new possibilities that conferences present.
BE HASHTAG HAPPY
#biteconference and #adaptandthrive are our official conference hashtags! Join the conversation on social media by using the official hashtags and speaker’s handles. Think about a selfie with your team or one of the presenters. Speakers and influencers use hashtags to monitor the conversation, so it’s a great way to step forward and join in.
Ensure you check yourself into the event too. This will put your brand (whether company or personal) on the map with fellow attendees
while demonstrating to your followers that you’re learning/participating/well connected (or all of the above!)
Have you connected with the person sitting next to you on LinkedIn yet? If not, why not?
Send them a personal message the next day to ensure they remember you, too – whether that be via LinkedIn, email or the good old-fashioned pen to paper.
Remember to follow your new business contacts on their social media platforms and sign up to their eNewsletter too.
Make yourself some notes for when next year’s booking form lands on your door mat (or in your inbox). We’re all about evolving and learning from experiences:
