January Jig: Event Strategy #1

Have you ever attended an event and thought, “How did they do that?”, “Love that presenter!” or “I want to be part of a great event.” I’ll share a great post at 3pm that develops these comments and gets to the heart of “Why do I want to host-speak-sponsor-participate in an event?”

Events give you (and your cause) visibility! Networking boosts your connections at events as host, attendee, sponsor or speaker. Consider these keys:

  • Have a project management approach to your event: focus on goals, budget & timeline.
  • How do you want your attendees to feel while at your event?
  • A strategic & well-planned event can boost your ability to connect with people.
  • You can share your knowledge and establish you as an expert in your field.
  • Events give visibility to a cause or passion that you want other people to support.
  • Successfully promoted/managed events use a strategic combination of social media platforms and timing.
  • Consider which are the best events at which to host, speak, sponsor or network to increase your visibility.

Thanks to Idea Girl Media for a fabulous January Jig Event!!

    Mary Beth,

    I’m thrilled that you are a part of January Jig, and I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you better!

    Your introduction video is terrific – Congratulations! The networking event within looked fun, productive — I even recognized the place and some faces… 🙂

    The one thing that you brought out that I applaud you for listing: Having a project management approach. Having also organized group events in the past, that’s the best tip for success, in my opinion. That’s 90% of what leads to, “how do I want the guests to feel?”

    Cincinnati is a bit more on my radar these days. I’m also wondering if there are ways we might collaborate in the future…

    Thank you for “Jigging” with me!
