5 Reasons Why the Larry Chiang Method of Conference Crashing Works Every Time, 90% of the Time

by Larry Chiang on March 18, 2013

By Larry Chiang

This is for undergrad engineers only. If you’re not from at least a tier two Ivy school’s engineering program, please leave.

Obviously, if you’re from a program like Cal that’s better than majority of Ivy League’s ENGR programs, you’re welcome to read on…

Here are the surprising reasons why my crashing YOU the ENGR undergrad works EVERYTIME (90% of the time)

-1- You know and mastered my article “Permission vs Forgiveness”

-2- Leverage how few ‘pre-blog the conference”

If you would like to crash, pre-blog the conference.

Similarly, if you’re crashing an industry with a new startup or Larry Chiang Mini Company Concept, pre-blog.

-3- Pre- YouTube

There is a huge movie studio about to attempt a viral campaign. It will leverage YouTube. Help the conference that you’re trying to crash by doing a YouTube that previews the knowledge and network promoted by the conference producer.

-4- Post Blog and Post Tweet.

Post Conference coverage can be as simple as Top 10 Tweets from #AmexDuck9’s slew of events at SXSW.

-5- You’re the VIP already.

Don’t be a douchie CS major engineer showing up like you own the place. Be thankful and add some value with your RSVP

BONUS -6- Remember engineers are the new super marketers and super hosts.

Yes we went from worst to first We went from zeros to heroes #Zero2Hero

Remember, the Guarsdmen uses engineers to do their PR for their flagship event. Know that these business recipes from 1983 called “Gua Gua Guacamole” work super well

It moves you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve
