Why can’t we sell tickets for Get Together, our debut conference in London this year?

My answer to Why can’t we sell tickets for Get Together, our debut conference in London this year? on Quora

I just tried finding your event using both Google and Twitter’s search and I couldn’t find any information an it. I suggest setting up a Twitter account for the event and trying to increase your Google visibility a bit.

I’ve added your event to Lanyrd, the conference listing site (I’m a co-founder of that service)—that should help with promotion. You can sign in with Twitter and maintain that listing yourself if any of the details change. http://lanyrd.com/2011/get-toget...

(I eventually found the site at http://nextbiggerbetter.com/conf... by guessing the name of the supporting organisation from the Quora followers attached to this question).

Your site doesn’t mention where the event is happening (not even the city from what I saw)—you should make that more prominent, as that helps people decide if they can attend. Venue information would be even better.

The site should also promote the official twitter account and hash tag for the event.
