How to Produce Successful Virtual Events
Freelancers, solopreneurs, and startup founders are used to operating in virtual environments. Zoom and countless other virtual communication tools are the way we do impactful work without offices or geographic proximity to others.Now, a big chunk of the business world has gone remote and virtual. Real-life events -- both big and small -- have been canceled out of necessity, and there’s a good chance that the increasing digitalization of business that was already happening means many events will not go back to the “real” world.That means it’s time to start thinking about how virtual events figure into your business model.
