At first I was really excited to see that Social Media Examiner is organizing another Social Media Success Summit, but… There is a big issue. Instead of making it physical event, they made it digital.
Why I won’t participate
Plethora of information is already available online. Wether they like to admit it or not. Even though the “line-up” is quite good, the core reason why we attend events like these, is the human touch and live connection.
I am not going to argue that the content of this conference isn’t going to be superb, I am just stating that the main point is missed “human interaction”.
Even with the early bird special, you can find webinars that contain way more value for dollars.
The next step
Look for some real world event, you will get to travel and you will really meet new people, and not some virtual networking through LinkedIn.
