2 weeks left until Sistah Vegan conference, 16% filled, no one has registered for over a week…
After recording the above video, I also started thinking about how this conference differs from other vegan and animal liberation oriented conferences that are more expensive and require most folk to take a plane, train, or bus to get to, yet these conferences don’t have challenges with getting spots filled. I have been given conflicting answers/reasons for this. Some say I am underselling/undervaluing the worth of the conference, so people are suspicious that so much information would be so ‘cheap.’ Hence, I should be charging people over $100. Others say it is too expensive and they don’t understand why I can’t make it much cheaper than $45. Others suggest that I can’t expect to sell anything to a broad audience with “Black” in the title, while others say that they did register because of the ‘people of color’ focus.
Or, perhaps it’s as simple as this: do most folk wait until the last minute to register? Just thinking out loud here and would appreciate folk helping to spread the word. Thanks
