Things you need to know before a blogging conference

I have been to numerous blogging conferences. There are a couple of things that you need to know before a blogging conference to make sure you get what you came for. This is a huge investment in your brand and for your wallet. The first thing you need to do is determine is the conference right for you. What are your goals? I mean the goals you have for yourself as a blogger and the overall direction of your business. If you are going to spend the money to attend a conference you need to spend the time to determine why you are there. What is that you wish to accomplish?

The next thing you need to do is determine what sessions would be best to build your business and to accomplish your professional and personal goals. I do not pick sessions based on what my friend is going to. I go to meals with my friends but this is about building my business. I actually go to a lot of conferences to meet bloggers to work with. I find a lot of the content to be redundant. I pick sessions based on the people who are speaking and the topic. I come prepared with questions that I would like answered. I often listen to their talk and then ask my questions if they weren’t covered. I am not shy about finding the information I need. I consider the speaker to be a teacher and I have never had trouble speaking to a teacher.

The next thing you need to do when going to a blogger conference is determine who you would like to meet. I often join facebook groups to see what bloggers are going. I research who would be someone that I could learn from then. I approach that blogger. I have started a lot of valuable relationships not by chance but on purpose. I tell the bloggers why I am interested in speaking with them and then I plan an additional date. I am not one to flatter so my approach is authentic. I believe that working with others and learning from others is the greatest way to learn more about your brand and your business.

The last thing you need to do is figure out what you need to bring. I do not mean just what should you wear but what should you pack. It is hard to remember everything that is why I created a packing list for myself. I figured it would be a great tool to This is a packing guide for a conference and it is very helpful.
