Video is the only form of marketing that works for you whether you're working or not. But, it comes at a price ... insecurity. Dominating with video requires you to get over yourself in order to make a difference for others. In this class, we'll discuss Coach Kyle's 5-step framework to making a name for yourself and growing your business on video.

From search to keywords to the algorithm to engagement, LinkedIn activity matters in a way that it never has before. More people are visiting your LinkedIn profile before meeting with you, so that is your opportunity to show them you are an industry expert.

HCAR is offering a full day of dynamic sessions including industry-relevant CE classes (see below for schedule and descriptions of classes), Tradeshow Expo (from 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), world-renowned speakers, and numerous networking opportunities.
