How to Make the Most of Attending the 2011 Blogging Success Summit
Schedule Time to Listen – and Take Action
If a call lasts an hour, plan another hour to take immediate action on the suggestions.
Capture Ideas Before They Get Away
Keep a notepad pan next to you and write down ideas as they come to you.
Read the Transcripts
Just like in school, highlight what stands out for you.
Prioritize Content by Must-attend Sessions
This is a ton of content. So, read the program and select the top 3-5 presentations you don’t want to miss. Plan to interact with the presenters, either during the call or via social networks.
