One of the main reasons or truth of attending Social Media Conferences is that most community managers go further in their careers when they not only regularly attend them but play an active role and or participate in them.
They tend to do better work with their clients with generally more success overall.
Let us break down some of the reasons for this statement above:
IT REFRESHES THE RESERVES:
As we all know every job and or company has its ups and downs, those moments of complete and utter passionate idea making and then the moments when you just hit a brick wall with everything drying up the idea drought hits you full on leaving you high and dry.
Once you attend these types of conferences you will see how it not only allows you to share but also be inspired with new ideas, passion for what you do and or just that awesome feeling of inspiration that tends to envelop the whole conference when like-minded people get together.
It allows you to rethink the role you play in not only in running your company or but how others that work in the company see your role and vice versa.
LASTING POWER NETWORK USERS
As per any event or conference, any if not all the inspiration that was felt or shared during said even or conference, dissipates as soon as you leave.
But by using your network of contacts you created in the event or conference you can not only hold onto those fresh and inspiring ideas and moments but build on it once you keep that line of contact open that will last until you meet at the next conference.
INSIGHT TO THAT ONE-KEY MOMENT OR PRODUCT
With these conferences mainly run and inspired by a small key moment of idea or change in a company and the way it is run, it is usually that key moment or idea that stays with you, especially if brought up by your peers running the same type of business.
THE HALLWAY CONVERSATION
As most, if not all these types of conferences are run with the idea of networking and sharing ideas and passions on a social level, with no formal setup, you will find even that small conversation known as, HALLWAY CONVERSATIONS, as not only a lasting impact on your shared ideas but it is the one conversation or idea sharing that will stick with you until your next meeting or conference.
KEEPING UP TO DATE WITH VITAL TECHNOLOGIES
As most social media tools and or apps are not a breeze to use but to create as well, these conferences offers a platform for your to rub shoulders with the creators of these tools and apps, allowing you to get into the insights behind creating these apps and thus leading to you understanding the app on a different level which can only lead to a much better understanding of it and making it easier to implement in your business and the use of it.
A CHANCE TO MEET YOUR NEXT BOSS OR EVEN THE NEXT COMPANY TO OWN
As most if not all conferences are run and presented by the real passionate believers in the social media and their products presented, as well as those who attend them because of their passion towards these tools and apps, it can only lead to like-minded and passionate people that want the success or future of their company or product to be as successful as the next person.
This ideal setting has been the point of introduction to many people who ended up starting and or running a joint venture or company.
THE HAPPY HOUR SECRET
Even though these social media conference, where you do build the initial relationships, a face-to-face meeting which these conferences create will build a long-lasting and fruitful relationship.
With what is known as the liquid courage factor, it opens up minds as well as doors, which would not have been opened if not for this “happy hour” setup or meeting
