HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT HAPPENS AT SOCIAL MEDIA CONFERENCES?
HAVE YOU EVER ATTENDED ONE?
DO YOU THINK IT IS A WASTE OF TIME AS SOCIAL MEDIA IS A WASTE OF TIME?
DO YOU FIND THAT THESE CONFERENCES TAKE UP TO MUCH OF YOUR EMPLOYEES ATTENTION AWAY FROM YOU ACTUAL BUSINESS?
WELL, NO TO ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!
Social Media Conferences are the networking meeting grounds for the now and future, like the water cooler in a business or office space.
So why do we say this:
- 1: NETWORKING: like mentioned above like a water cooler area in your office, you are not distracted from your work at hand but having a short break where you can just relax and even get to know your fellow colleagues that you never see as always stuck behind a computer screen.
In this way, at SMCs you get to meet people you never met before and are behind the very social media networks and systems you use on a daily basis and you can not only get to know the product better but also the idea behind the system and its related platform.
- 2: BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS: by networking at these SMCs, you not only get to know the projects but also the business and the creators and build relationships that can lead to a better understanding of the platforms as well as developing any future business or ideas.
These relationships can even mean a better future for you even as a mutual understanding can mean you getting headhunted or vice versa and create a situation where the social media platform itself will benefit and the companies that use it on a daily basis.
- 3: BUILDING TRUSTS: These SMCs are the best way to build trust for all concerned in the social media world and their users. When you sit down at one of these SMCs, you don’t just it down and stare at a presenter blabbing away, no everyone is free to participate through questioning and answering that befits all.
The best part is no one is above the other, all ideas are considered even noted and attendees will always be opened minded to anything that comes from these SMCs.
So to go further into this SMCs have a look at part 2 of the benefits of SMCs and how it can improve not only your business but it’s relations with the companies that supply you with the tools you use daily.
