Branding mattersGreat speakers and an awesome venue are important, but how you market them is even more important. Your marketing materials should convey that your conference is an experience that someone doesn’t want to miss out on. I created graphics for Instagram that were inspirational and empowering, similar to the experience that one would get at the summit. I also hosted a special Hustle HER Way edition of my #HERmovement Twitter chat to provide digital taste of what the summit would consist of. Be very thoughtful in your branding and how it aligns with your vision.
Organization is the key to your sanity
I created a project plan in Excel where I listed every task that needed to be completed for the summit, as well as their due dates. Because this was a one-woman show, I knew something would slip between the cracks if I didn’t document what I was doing. I used this spreadsheet to keep track of every call and email I sent, vendors, sponsors, purchases, etc. Maintaining efficient records will save you the time of figuring out where you are and will be helpful if you decide to bring volunteers on board.
