I know what you're thinking, "Great, ANOTHER business network - just what I need."
I have to admit, that was my initial reaction when the Savvy Sisters were invited to join as FOCUS experts. However, since joining, I've found the site to be full of focused (hence the name, I'm assuming) information and active conversations and posts from a wide range of contributors.
FOCUS offers three core areas of information (from their site):
- Q&A – Focus Q&A provides business and technology professionals with an opportunity to ask questions of and receive multiple answers from Focus Experts. It's a great way to get near-instant answers to specific business questions.
- Research – Produced by leading Experts, Focus Research is designed to provide businesses with the knowledge and insight they need to make seminal decisions. Research offerings are often based on data collected from Focus members and range from topically oriented Research Briefs to authoritative Research Guides that provide in-depth, authoritative analysis of trends and events.
- Events – Experts also participate in a variety of events, including Roundtables, Webcasts and Summits. Focus Events are built around Expert speakers and provide attendees with an opportunity to personally interact with Experts.
As a member, you can choose to follow specific topics and receive digests of activity within those topics.
Coming up next Thursday, June 16th, Savvy Sister Jamie will be part of a four-person roundtable, The Secrets to Webinar Success. This free, 45-minute online event will touch on a wide range of topics including how webinars fit into a demand generation strategy, the secret to an effective webinar invite, keys to keeping attendees engaged, and tips for creating well-designed materials that will help you make your point and impress your audience.
If you use webinars or are thinking about using them, we'd love to have you join us for this event.
And even if you can't make the roundtable discussion, you might want to check out Focus as a research and networking resource. Be sure to look us up!
