How do you draw your community to your blog while growing your network and establishing your expertise?
They're not just for hobby bloggers--they'll help your business too.
And Blog Events provides a framework for setting up your own successful event.
You'll cover why blog events are beneficial to you, how to define your event's purpose, what to consider when deciding on particulars, tricks for developing an effective marketing plan, how to tackle systems and responsibilities, and how to deal with the wrap-up.
Blog Events also has a special bonus section, filled with the secrets of a veteran blog event host--from what makes an event successful to tips that'll help keep your sanity intact. Because you can never be too prepared.
In Blog Events by Amanda Shofner you get an inside look into a blogger’s successful step-by-step guide to productively planning and successfully executing a blog event. Shofner puts all of her own personal expertise into one place. She lays everything out and not only gives you suggestions along the way for how they can be carried out. At the end of each chapter, there are handy bullet points that will make it easier to go back in and read the highlights.
Shofner covers how she and her team have worked to tweak and evolve the Bout of Books read-athon to the event that it is today. It takes a lot of organization but it can be done! After reading Blog Events I feel confident that I can carry out any bookish blog event I set my mind too! I suggest that if you have any big blog events of any kind coming up that you give this book a read so you can stay calm, enjoy your event, and watch it all unfold with confidence.
