Welcome to our Circles Curriculum

9:00 a.m. Start. . . but that’s when we really start. Networking, camaraderie, and set-up start at 8:30 if you’re so inclined. But at 9 we begin 20 hours of instruction in 8 hours of engagement.
9:30 a.m.

“Guardian Leadership: No other way to lead”

Our entire day is built upon the concept of serving an audience by putting them first. Think of the people you trust in life, whose opinions you respect. We’ll show you how to be that for your community online

10:15 a.m.

“What does your audience really want?”

No matter how small their words or phrases, all that we need to know about them is in their words and actions. Let’s learn how to find the products, blog posts and ideas they want and need. .

11:00 a.m. Short networking, snack, coffee break
11:15 a.m.

“Dissecting what your audience has in common with you”

Between every person or company and its audience is a venn diagram of overlapping interests. How can we determine what beliefs to lead with. When your audience believes what you do, they will follow you forever.

12:00 p.m. Lunch: We are a 100% gluten free conference and will provide a lunch everyone loves. We even make it easy for vegetarians. Imagine a taco bar with corn tortillas and the chicken separate from the veggies. Yummy
12:45 p.m.

“The Laws of Persuasion are uncommonly normal”

We all make decisions, take actions, open emails, click links for a reason. And these reasons are codified. If we know what helps someone take an action, we can use that to make them better, smarter, stronger, happier.

1:30 p.m.

“No more generic talk about the Power of Story”

We’re not going to talk about injecting your own personal history into your marketing. You get that talk everywhere. But let’s break down the elements of a story that keep you watching TV shows, movies, reading books and clicking links. That should not be ignored.

2:15 p.m.
PleasureTown Founders1

Guest Speakers from Pleasure Town

We asked Erin and Keith to come speak to us because of their unbelievable story skills. Each of our businesses has an over arching storyline of things we’re teaching our audience. Keeping the audience interested and excited to hear what’s next is what Erin and Keith are experts at.

Their podcast does just this. Each season has an overarching story that is told by the episodes. But the episodes can be listened to on their own. They have their own arch. I’m very excited to learn about this concept and what it takes to perfect consistency.

3:00 p.m. Snack Break: A little chocolate never hurt anyone. Except that for exception guy
3:15 p.m.

“Social Media Engagement Strategy”

Likes, pins, shares, and tweets don’t happen by accident. We’ll show you “live” the strategies that create shares. The strategies that create comments. The strategies that create clicks. If Facebook has ever bothered you, you’ll see exactly how amazing engagement happens.

4:00 p.m.

“Every pixel should serve your audience”

Custom sidebars and understanding your income can lead to an unbelievable on-page monetization and engagement strategy. DON’T OPTIMIZE your ads until you hear this talk. This alone will make you more than the price of admission.
