Seminar Descriptions

17 January (Tue)

Seminar 1 – Steve Bliesner – It’s Not A Booth (How To Stand Out In A Crowded Marketplace)
This is not a description (Come see my talk to find out what it’s all about)
Seminar 2 – The Key Metrics Every Business Owner Should Know (Jason D’Costa)
There are some key metrics and drivers that business owners often do not understand, or are overlooked for various reasons. Not only are these critical to the success of any business, they also directly relate to your Net profit! So the more efficient and proactive are these numbers you are, the healthier your Net Profit will be! Understand and measuring these metrics is easy! You will leave with a  clear understanding of exactly how to implement this in your business to ensure you are getting the most out of your bottom line.
Seminar 3 – Understand Your Analytics – Improve Your ROI (Owen McCrink)
Analytics and Tracking. The stuff that no one really pays much attention to. But you should, in fact it’s critical. Especially if you are paying for advertising. We will take a look at what systems you should use, how to customise Google Analytics, how to quickly tell what it is and isn’t performing. Armed with the right knowledge and tool you will be able to self assess , cut out the money wasting and focus on what is really giving you bang for your buck!
Seminar 4 – Digital Marketing: What Business Owners Need To Know (Iain Calvert and Sarah Hutcheon)
Everybody is saying digital marketing is the future, but what do you need to know in the photo booth business? Iain & Sarah from Digital Marketing Agency Reload Media, will help you navigate the complicated world of digital marketing so you can get more customers.
Seminar 5 – Social Media: How To Utilise It To Grow Your Business (Annabelle Smith)
Newsflash: Your customers are sick of seeing instagram pics of your photo booth. – Are you guilty of uploading post after post of your photo booth at events?  – Do you struggle to find content to share to your social media channels? – Do you wonder if there is any point in spending all that time on social media anyway? If you answered yes to any of the above then this talk is for you. We’ll explore how to create and tell your brand story through social media and how to use it as a new business tool that really works. You’ll learn automation tips and tricks plus take a brief look at using the platform for advertising. You don’t want to miss this!
Demo Talk 1 - Photo Booth Industry Insurance
Anyone who considers themselves a professional having professional insurance cover to protect not only your business but your clients is vital. Booth Cover’s Steve Nelson explains what your risks are and what insurance policies you should consider to minimise them.

18 January (Wed)

Seminar 6 – How To Level Up: What’s Next And How To Be More Than Just A Photo Booth Company (Phil Preston)
If you’re constantly struggling to get clients or getting undercut on price then it’s time to start thinking broader. Don’t have all of your eggs in one basket so to speak. If you start thinking about what you offer as a skill rather than a service then Photo Booths are really just the starting point or a gateway to an incredible array of alternative business ideas that you can tap into.
Seminar 7 – 20 Nuggets To Increase Your Business in 30 Minutes (Rob Savickis)
With close to 30 years experience in the entertainment business, the last 5 almost exclusively with photo booths, Rob Savickis has gone thru the school of hard knox learning what works and what doesn’t while successfully competing in crowded fields. Rob will present a series of 20 “nuggets”, some of which you may already be implementing, or perhaps you are not, which will increase your bottom line. If you take effective action on even just one of these 20 “nuggets” it alone will be worth much much more than the time and money you have invested in yourself and your business making the wise decision to be a part of BoothCon.
Demo Talk 2 – The Wilkes Booth Co
The Wilkes Booth Co talk about their latest and greatest product offerings
Seminar 8 – The Entrepreneurial Mindset (Cat Matson and Jock Fairweather)
Too many people are quick to go into business thinking they can succeed as they have one or two cores skills they know how to apply in business. But if you’re going to be successful you have got to take on the role of a business person in it’s entirety. You’re not just a business owner you are an entrepreneur and it’s time to start thinking like one.
Seminar 9 – Work Life Balance Is Dead! (Jane Riley)
Work life balance is a myth and we celebrate its death! If you find yourself asking “Is this all there is to life?” work long hours, pay bills, no time for fun or family…then this is for you! Jan’s high energy, thought provoking talk will take you from stressed and messed, to energised and revitalised! Expect a high energy, fun, provocative and interactive keynote!
Seminar 10 – Experience And The Importance of Giving (Chris Wong)
Business is hard at the best of times. The concepts of business come naturally to some people, and others strive to achieve their best even if it’s not so intuitive. Experience is considered, by some, the sole key to running a great business, but in my eyes that’s not entirely true. When I come to speak to (and with) you all at Boothcon, I aim to bridge the gap of mystery and part with some key concepts that are immediately actionable, to set your business on the path to great success.
