Web/Virtual Conferencing

I had the shittiest experience in weB conferences it was utter chaos haha so I'm not a big fan of it, there is this chat mechanism to reach out to your prospect and they never answer?


Maybe I was in a bad conference or I was simply bad.


Any strategies on how you maneuvered this?

Not sure what you're talking about... do you mean like virtual conferences? If so, yeah they suck.

Edit: Virtual conferences take away the best part of a conference: the face to face interaction with potential clients. It's so easy to avoid/ignore vendors when they're just a screen. I've tried several different virtual conference tools and haven't had success with a single one.

Can confirm. They do, in fact, suck.

waste of fucking time...utter chaos...whenever I think about web conferences I think about the Vietnam war dog Meme. I'm really keen to see if people are successful in them and how/what did they do

Yea you brought it up on my other post, this is strictly about the video/virtual non physical conferneces that became "trendy" in COVID times and unfortunatly for cheapstakes it's ideal because you don't pay travel and accommodation...but from my experience you don't even get an ROI. infact I was so discontent I logged out and went back to work like any other day.Β

@salesnerdΒ indeed I'm glad I'm not alone in this because I thought at some point that I was a shitty salesperson in that field but good it's not me.

Web conferences are awesome for attendees and terrible for prospecting.Β

To me, the entire point of a conference is to have face to face interaction. Virtual conferences are just a waste of time.
