Attending LIVE educational events like conferences, workshops, seminars, and retreats can be one of the BEST ways to GROW your business. I usually attend an average of 4-8 educational events a year, so far this year I have attended two conferences Spark and Hustle and Exposure and Profit. At each conference, I was able to gain insight, make connections, and find out about various opportunities to grow my business.
In this week’s blog post, I share 3 reasons why attending LIVE educational events can GROW your business:
- Insight– The knowledge that you learn during an educational event allows you to gain insight on ways that other people have achieved results in their businesses, what steps that they took, and how they were able to do it. You can use this knowledge and apply it to your business to help you GROW your business. For example, at Exposure and Profit, one speaker talked about how she used webinars to grow her business, another speaker talked about how she has grown her business with affiliate marketing. Each speaker may have a different strategy to share, but you can apply what makes sense for you and your type of business.
- Connections– During educational events, you get to meet the attendees, the speakers, the sponsors, and more. This allows you to build your network with people who are serious about their businesses because they invested their time, money, and energy into attending a live educational event. These connections can be some of the strongest connections you make for your business. When you meet someone in person you have an opportunity to get to know them on a deeper level. Whether it’s talking to them during a session or going to lunch with a new person that you met at the educational event, either way you get an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and to create a new connection which can lead to a mutually beneficial relationship, and those are the type of connections you want to make, and the relationships you want to build.
- Opportunities– Attending LIVE events opens up the door to various opportunities for your business. After attending Exposure and Profit, I was given the opportunity to speak at the conference next year. After attending Spark and Hustle, I connected with several individuals and increased my network of people I know and who I could potentially refer business to. Opportunities open the door to GROW your business, so being in a room full of potential opportunities can help your business!
So, if you would like to get valuable insight for your business, make the right connections, and get more opportunities, you need to be attending more LIVE educational events.
