Time to book your tickets! ✈️

 

How to Choose the Right Digital Marketing Conference

Before we dive in, take a look at our quick cheat sheet that will help you choose a conference that aligns with your needs and expectations:

☑️ Define your goal. Understanding your objectives will help you narrow down the options. Looking to learn new skills? Research conferences that offer workshops or hands-on training sessions. Want to network with industry professionals? Pay attention to panel discussions and social events that encourage informal interactions. Hoping to promote your business? Seek out forums with sponsorship packages or speaking opportunities.

☑️ Consider location and budget. Decide if you are willing to travel for a summit, prefer to attend an event closer to home, or want to find an online marketing conference to watch from the comfort of your office. Consider whether your budget stretches over travel costs, accommodation expenses, and registration fees.

☑️ Read reviews and testimonials. Browse through reviews or social media mentions for the conference to get a glimpse of past attendees' experiences. Positive feedback about the quality of content, smooth organization, and presentation value can help you make the final decision.

☑️ Evaluate speakers. If you follow specific marketing professionals from your industry, it makes sense to search for their names on the agenda. However, while star presenters might seem like your number one choice, don't overlook the speakers who aren't as famous or active on social media. These lesser-known specialists may challenge conventional thinking, provide a fresh perspective, and share niche expertise that is just as valuable.

☑️ Plan ahead. Many digital marketing conferences offer early registration discounts. So it makes sense to plan your calendar for the year ahead, and book the desired events in advance. You'll also have enough time to get the conference budget approved and book all the accommodations if the conference is in a distant location.

Bonus: How to Get Noticed at Your Next Conference

At a digital marketing conference, the chances for networking are wide—but so is the competition for attention. With a pitch done right, you can make valuable connections and promote your business to new audiences. However, it all boils down to how you present yourself. First, you need to make a strong first impression—since you only get one, and it tends to stick. Second, you need to ensure that after your fellow marketer has met a hundred other people, they have something on hand to reinforce your image in their mind.

🤔 Could a business card suffice for the job? It might, but a flipbook offers benefits beyond just sharing contact information. Flipbooks are interactive digital publications made from PDFs: you can take your company presentation, personal portfolio, or even a Canva template and convert it into an online document in just a few minutes. You can then add branding on top to look business, and enhance the pages with engaging videos, GIFs, pop-up image galleries, or polls and surveys to show off your creative campaigns or projects.

The best part? Flipbooks are so easy to share—just send a direct link to your new connection. If they wish to look through it right away, the document will instantly open on their device, be it mobile or desktop. For post-conference communications, you can create an individual trackable link: to learn whether your acquaintance has opened the document and how exactly they interact with it. You'll be able to follow up at just the right moment—with a relevant offer or a simple reminder to give your accomplishments, projects, and unique value proposition a second look.
