Wow! What a conference! There was so much energy in the room, excitement for the future, and fantastic advice from top-notch speakers. I'm talking about the Kajabi Impact Summit in Irvine, CA.
This gal traveled from Nashville to Los Angeles, rented a car, and drove south to Irvine, the headquarters of Kajabi, the premier marketing software. While there, I met current clients and hopefully will gain a few new ones from the many connections made.
The Status of the Online Knowledge Commerce Industry
Jonathan Cronstedt (AKA JCron), President of Kajabi, was an incredible master of ceremonies with his dancing and joking, keeping the crowd energized and laughing. He had us all in stitches with his Baby Shark dance and aspirations of moving it like Usher. He also shared some great information about the status of the knowledge commerce industry, you know, digital courses, online coaching, and the like.

Get Noticed at Events with Facebook Ads
Without diminishing the importance of all the great speakers and their messages to us, I can't help but love the networking at these events more than anything.
To help get my own name out there to others at the event, I ran ads with some geo-targeting combined with interest targeting for the industry. It worked! Several people reached out to me via Messenger, and I've got appointments on my calendar to connect further with those I met.
Here's what my ad looks like. Really simple. No bells and whistles.
