I’ve noticed on the twitter hashtag for the ProBlogger Event that people are having trouble deciding which sessions to go to.
Well, so was I. So I adopted a strategy that seems to have worked quite well.
Know your main goal.
My main goals this year surround business blogging (for my business, Nutshell), PR/Advertising through blogging and eBook creation. I went through the session list and circled (on paper, I can be old-fashioned sometimes) the sessions that matched these topics.
But there’s more than one session on at once that’s relevant.
That’s a great thing! That means you’re at a conference that’s right up your alley. But how to do you choose? I’ve considered two factors: Networking and Interactivity.
Who is running each session?
Are these people I want to make sure I meet?
Are they people who inspire me and will encourage me?
Will you get more out of the session by attending it in person, rather than reviewing it later on the virtual ticket? (I feel like this is more relevant for panels & lounge sessions when it comes to this conference.)
Is this a topic that is easy for you to learn online, afterwards?
These few questions really narrowed it down for me & I’ve got my preferred sessions marked off, with a back up one on hand – just in case rooms fill up too fast or something.
How are you choosing your sessions for PB Event? Do you have any tips on choosing to include here?
