Promoting Your Session
Letting people know about your session is a great way to build the audience for it. Here are some tips for getting started:
#DevLearn—the Conference Hashtag
If you’re talking about the conference on social media be sure to use the conference hashtag, #DevLearn, to get more attendee eyes on what you’re sharing. Also, as we get closer to the event try checking into what people are sharing with the hashtag and get involved in conversations and questions before the conference even begins.
DevLearn Session Videos
We’re inviting you to film yourself telling attendees why they should come to your session. Think of it like an elevator speech—you’ve got just a few moments to convince someone of the value you’re bringing, so make it count. Make it like taking a selfie – quick and easy to record. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or webcam and a few minutes. We’ll host your video on your session description page and share it on the DevLearn social media feeds. Just remember to:
- Keep it short: We’re looking for trailers that are about 30 seconds long
- Keep it focused on your session: Think elevator speech, not a sales pitch
- Email it directly to us: Send the video file to programs@LearningGuild.com for posting
- Include your social media handle: if you’d like us to tag you on Twitter or Instagram when we share your trailer
- Send us your video: to be included in session promotions!
When creating your teaser video, keep in mind that it should be a quick intro to your topic—giving people just enough to want to know more. Include a little about what makes your session unique, how it can help them in their own work, and what they’ll walk away from your session knowing. Don’t forget to introduce yourself and make your video authentic to who you really are! Want more information on how to create a teaser trailer or what makes a compelling one?
