Chris Brogan...

Very good points here. I think you've got it right. People never want to be the first to a party. Your advice and ideas are sound.


This is good stuff. I will not try to do another event without having 10 to 20 people already onboard before launching the invite for people to participate. It seems like this would have been obvious to me seeing how many parties I have left due to no one being there when I got there.

Rich, hello. You have some interesting ideas here. When you have a moment, why don't you take a look at some of my work and let me know how you think you might be able to help me in my marketing efforts and branding and building a online community of cheerleaders.
