- Create a long term footprint of your event
- Enable a worldwide audience to participate
- Encourage online discussion
- Give your speakers extra value
My approach to live blogging is to prepare well in advance to give your speakers the best value, collating key slides, links and data wherever possible and making the blog as best a reflection of the event as we can. The event is supported with a dedicated page on your site or Just Practising (depending on your audience), live twitter archive of hashtagged tweets and a follow up report six weeks after the event to give you an indication of the reach.
I can live blog on my own at any event with Wifi, or collaborate with other bloggers and tweeters and live streamed video. Prices start at £500 for a half day event plus expenses.
