• Great tips! I haven’t ever done an event because not sure how to or if it is needed for my blog, but I am glad to find these suggestions. I’ll keep this bookmarked in case I ever do. Thanks for sharing. I think etiquette is very important and will insure people participate as well. Sally

    • Hi Sally

      There’s more to organizing, planning, designing, and marketing virtual events than some people realize. However, hosting an event doesn’t need to feel daunting. It can be a lot of fun and a very successful way to engage with your audience, provide valuable tips and trainings, and promote your offerings. Knowing the right steps to take and the right tools to use makes all the difference in the world.

      Thanks for the visit! 🙂

  • Hi Mel
    Hope all went well on the 9th.
    I’m sure it did and you can relax now.

    • Hey Keith

      We had some technical difficulties with the teleseminar service that prevented us from going “live” on the day of the event. SO … I ultimately recorded the presentation, solo, and sent the link out to those who signed up — along with a little added bonus to thank everyone for their patience and understanding.

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  • Great tips. The only one I don’t necessarily agree with is #2. It’s valid to provide a list of things the participants will learn but setting a clear agenda can have the effect of people coming and going based on what content is being presented at that time.

    • Hi Nicole — thanks for swinging by and lending your input!

      I understand what you’re saying about tip #2.

      In lieu of a full-scale agenda, I think providing a few bullet points (highlights) in your final reminder really goes a long way to create some anticipation and excitement about what your registrants have to look forward to.

      Appreciate the visit and please come back soon!
      Melanie
