According to new virtual conference benchmarks from Nuclear Analytics, the average daily view time for a live virtual conference is 2 hours, 10 minutes and 56 seconds. In scheduling their upcoming Virtual Divorce Conference Sept. 9-11, Business Valuation Resources has scheduled days of 2 hours five minutes, two hours 10 minutes and 3 hours 20 minutes.

All roads seem to be pointing to LinkedIn this morning. An email they just sent asks me to fill out a 2-minute survey so "we can best support our members on their professional journey." An article also showed up on my digital doorstep from Nonprofit Hub titled a 7 Step Guide to LinkedIn Marketing.
I've been perusing the websites of SIPA members and found some features very much worth replicating. Here they are:

I saw a wonderful new documentary last night titled, BANG! The Bert Berns Story. He was one of the greatest songwriters/producers you never heard of, responsible for hits like "A Little Bit of Soap," "Twist and Shout," "Tell Him," "Hang on Sloopy," "Here Comes the Night," "Brown Eyed Girl," "Under the Boardwalk" and "Piece of My Heart."

Today’s marketing efforts require a targeted approach that understands the behavior of you customer, what they want and soon, what they will do next. “The marketing game has changed dramatically,” said Tom Pines, CEO at Real Magnet. “We’ve gone from batch and blast to a much more sophisticated way to do things.
