A Win-Win: Promote Your Involvement, Promote the Conference

  • Let your network know that you have been invited to present at the conference.

This could include:

– Putting an announcement on Linked In, Twitter and Facebook.

– Sending a press release to your organization or association newsletter editor.

– Adding a tag to your email signature.

  • If the conference has a Facebook page, Like it and be actively involved with the page, posting links to info related to the topic you are presenting that might be of interest to conference participants.
  • Record a 60-90 second promotional YouTube video. If you have your own YouTube page, post it. Forward to the conference office to see if there is an appropriate place to post it on the conference site.
  • Tweet about your specific session, and the conference in general, at least twice monthly, using the event hashtag if they have one.
  • Send an email blast out to colleagues inviting them to the conference and to hear your presentation.
  • Join existing conversations on the discussion group and share some details of your session.
