How to Maximize the ROI of Attending a Conference

In his article, "What Is The Business Return Of Attending A Conference?", author Lee Oddon presents an extensive list of valuable returns that derive from attending or presenting at a conference. The article is covers many facets of conference attendance including:

  • pre-event planning and marketing
  • maximizing your time and effectiveness at the event
  • post-event to-do's
I especially like the section on creating and curating content where he discusses 
  • Live blogging the event
  • Live tweeting the event
  • Curating multiple sources and multiple threads of information into one very usable summary
And throughout his article, he points out the value of taking and sharing pictures and videos.

Oddon discusses how the "event" is actually a long and drawn-out opportunity to make connections, learn valuable information, share the information and add value to it, and how a single event can result in extensive content creation featuring your company to both new and old contacts.

This is good information and anyone investing in a conference, trade show or other event would be wise to read this article and use this as a starting point to maximizing your event ROI. (Go to article)

How to Send Text Messages via E-Mail

You can send text messages from your email. The info below is a summary of two blog posts by David Kirk at Tech-Recipes.com. Some of it might be out-dated due to mergers and acquisitions, but once you know how it can be done, a little bit of internet sleuthing should turn up the correct address formats.

I do it a lot and I find that if I'm already sitting at a keyboard, it's usually faster to just send a text message via email. If you send SMS text messages via email, however, the replies will come back to your email, not to your phone.

It's also easy, especially if you save the email-to-text "email address" in your address book. Here are the email-to-text "email address" formats for six mobile companies.

T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com
Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com (confirmed - I used it today)
Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com  (confirmed - I use it all the time)
Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

(phonenumber = your 10 digit phone number) 

An example would be:  2125558888@vtext.com

Additional mobile companies' email-to-text formats are available for AT&T Mobile and other mobile carriers at: http://bit.ly/J2kPBG.

So if your fingers are clumsy on those tiny phone keypads or your "smart" phone gets too smart for its own good and frequently tries to guess what it thinks you want to say, then you should try email-to-text!
