I get a ton of emails about webinars. For some reason the vast majority of them occur during a time I have to spend time with my kids. They are usually somewhere between 6 PM and 8 PM. I’m like really? I’m guessing the people planning these things must not have kids. When you are planning a virtual event, think about the schedule of the people you want to attend the webinar. You may even do a survey to determine what time is the best time for a webinar. Now I’m not saying that this will guarantee more sign ups. However, you can be assured that you won’t get many people to show up if you plan a webinar during scheduled family time. Even if they do still try to attend the webinar, do you really want your attendees to be distracted by yelling “Sit down and Shut up” 20 times?

Networking doesn’t work.” I’ve got news for you. Networking is an active thing! It only works if you work it regularly. By “work it” I mean you have to be in touch with your network at all times. Let them know what you’re working on in your status updates. Offer to help with what they are working on.
