How to use social science to increase activity in a community – Richard Millington #TSC13

One of the presentations that really surprised me at The Social Conference was that of Richard Millington from Feverbee.

The title should have triggered me upfront, but it didn’t. However, the presentation on building successful communities touches your business and mine.

How can an event teach the self-employed to grow

There are a number of things that drive me. I am deeply in love with my family and enjoy being with them. Working online, from home most of the time, helps me to do this.

Another important thing that drives me is, discovering ‘new’ things on the web and sharing it while adding my own thoughts to it. Here I have a focus on marketing and social media. More specifically, marketing and social media for independent professionals or the self-employed. For You.

Successful Online Business Conference comes to Europe #sobconeurope

You want to become more successful online with your business? Learn from the great examples the speakers share. Apply it to your business in one day.

In 2009 I watched SOBCon Chicago for the first time. It was all online and I could not see everything, but @JenChicago made me fall in love with this event. She used the webcam of her laptop and shared the event live via Ustream.

It was that year I said to myself, “Next year I am going to SOBCon.”

Why SOBCon is a different conference

During most events there are presentations where you can sit back and listen to the experts. You get a lot of ideas for your business and how you can implement what the expert is talking about.

By the time you are on your way home you are overwhelmed with ideas and inspiration. The next morning the event is over and business as usual takes over. The inspiration fades away. Nothing changed
