Last year I attended the Content Marketing Academy Conference in Scotland for the second time, and I have to say it was even better than the first time. Not only because I got to meet Marcus Sheridan in person, but also because of the amazing people that attended the conference and made it what it was.
Generally speaking I am not a huge fan of conferences. I always seem to leave feeling slightly let down because the information given is all about why you would do something, with very few actionable how to’s. You leave feeling excited about all these things you should do and have no clear idea of how you would do them – which for me is very frustrating.
But I can tell you hand on heart that the Content Marketing Academy Conference is completely different. It’s a real learning experience where the speakers tell you what to do and how to do it – with real examples! And I think that’s what makes it very different. After every speaker you walk away with something that you can actually implement in your business. And for me that is real VALUE.
Why Should You Attend Conferences?
#1. Make Connections
The people that attend a conference can end up being not only great sources of referrals, but also good friends. It’s a great place to meet people with similar interests and work ethic. The conference isn’t all business, there is a great social element to it as well.
As a business owner it can sometimes be lonely if you are a solo operator, so having the chance to connect with a new group of people can be fantastic.
#2. Learn New Skills
We all need to keep our skill base updated and make sure we are taking advantage of the latest techniques to grow our business. Getting to talk one on one with the speakers is a great opportunity to pick their brains and get your questions answered. These are the leaders in their field and you want to get the most from them.
It’s a great opportunity to stay connected with what’s happening in other people’s businesses.
A good conference will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. I know that when I left the conference last year I came away with things that I couldn’t wait to action in my business. I actually felt quite sad that it went so quickly and I was leaving!
There is something about a room full of positive and energetic people that fires you up! And the buzz continued on social media as people wrote about the conference, what they learnt, and how much they enjoyed it!
Don’t Miss Out!
The Content Marketing Academy Conference is going to be EPIC this year. Chris, the founder, has an amazing line up of speakers over the 2 days that are going to blow your mind.
