Secret for Networking at Events - Prenetworking

SoCal CTO

Luckily, I've found a GREAT way to make my time spent at events much better. I call it: Prenetworking I spend about 30 minutes prior to the event going through the list of attendees and reaching out ahead of the event to suggest that we meet while we are there. I try to do this roughly about 2-3 days ahead of the event. I've generally stopped going to those events. There are enough events where I can prenetwork to 3-5 people who will be great to meet.

Since I posted on this and since I've been using this approach for quite a while, it has become pretty obvious that part of the reason that old school organizations / event producers are not getting the value of providing this kind of list.

Value and Meetups - SEO / SEM

SoCal CTO

It's unfortunate that this event is going the way it is. I went to a meetup yesterday that was on the topic of Internet Marketing / SEO / SEM. The meeting had a decent case study and some pretty good discussion around the room of different tools that you might consider using. Then the organizer went into a 20 minute sales pitch around his new training/coaching offering. It felt like a bad time share presentation.
