Podcast about attending live events

Live events for entrepreneurs – my review of Build Your Audience Live, by Janet Murray

Do you regularly attend live events?

Do you believe going to live events can push your business forward? 

In this week’s solo episode, I talk about my experience of attending the 2-day event Build Your Audience Live, organised by Janet Murray and her team in Shoreditch, London. Day one focused on building your audience on social media while day two was all about building your audience through content marketing. In this episode I share my key learnings and takeaways the speakers I met at the event. I cover live video, Instagram, email marketing, LinkedIn, Facebook ads, podcasting, YouTube, and Pinterest, so you really don’t want to miss this episode! And if you’re interested in learning more about LinkedIn, check out the details about my upcoming group coaching programme. 

You will learn…

  1. What makes great photos on Instagram and when and how often you should post on the platform. 
  2. Why you should spend £1 a day on your Facebook ads strategy.

And much much more!
