A few days have passed since IZEAFest and I've had the pleasure of conversing with the new friends and business associates that I met there via Facebook, on Twitter, via email, on the phone, etc.
The face-to-face networking that takes place at events such as IZEAFest is truly the springboard to the “virtual conversations” that continue on, post conference.
The unfortunate part about conferences is that eventually, they come to an end and somehow you just don't get to talk to everyone you set out to meet.
In the last two days, I've heard from a couple of people who told me that they didn't come up to me to say hi at IZEAFest because they always saw me talking to someone and they didn't want to interrupt; or when I was alone and checking my email, they didn't want to be a bother.
Please.. bother me!
I love meeting new people. I enjoy finding out about what you do and how I can help you grow your business.
I want you to be more than a Twitter avatar to me.
So, here's the deal. In the next two months, I'm going to be at the following conferences:
BlogWorld Expo: October 15-17 (Come swing by my booth #328)
ShareASale Think Tank: October 23-25
Ad:tech New York: November 4-6 (Come swing by my booth #1455)
Audience Conference: November 5-6
Social Fresh Cruise: November 12-16 (Come swing by my lounge chair) 😉
… and I really want to make sure I get to meet you.
Why don't we set a time that's convenient for the both of us to do so? This way, there are no awkward moments, no shoulda's and no if-only's that can get in our way.
Once I get your information, I'll shoot you off an email to connect to set up a good time for us to meet.
Here's looking forward to meeting you!
