    Virtual Conferences & Growth Hacking with Zachary McClung

    What if you could throw a conference with one thousand people all interested in what you have to offer? And what if it only cost $3 per attendee?

    That's what Zachary McClung did with a virtual conference. (Having spoken at a few myself, I know firsthand just how powerful they can be.) With a relatively unknown brand, he was able to launch a virtual conference that earned him new customers, new connections, media coverage, and more. All with his brand at centerstage.

    And he's going to do us exactly how to do it.
