I knew that the Women Get Social conference was going to be amazing full of awesome content but what I didn’t expect was the happy I experienced meeting new (and old!) blog friends.
Philly is one of my favorites places, you all know this. Attending to Women Get Social was a no brainer. I learned so much stuff and unlike the last time, I don’t feel overwhelmed, but instead I got confirmation. I know exactly what I want to do with this blog. I had a vision before but attending this conference helped me to be crystal clear about where I wanted to go. The inspirational women in the room was all I needed to really say…why not me?
It was so nice to get so much knowledge from the masterminds behind the SITS girls Tiffany and Francesca. Within the first few minutes of the introduction Tiffany shouted me out from the stage! This brown girl was blushing like crazy.
There was so much stuff that happened but first let me share my Top Five takeaways from Women Get Social Philadelphia:
1)What kind of bloggers are brands looking for?
- Visually appealing
- Be really strong on one platform (twitter, Facebook, etc.)
2) Take pictures at 3 different angles
- Only include what you need in posts
- Try to capture vertical and horizontal
- Choose a sellable topic
- Inspire educate or entertain
- Make sure you are keeping your target audience in mind
4) Affiliate marketing
- Your audience has to trust you
- Identify programs and products you love
- Promote products to your audience
5) Google sheets
- Use Google sheets to keep track of your blog income
- Open up a separate bank account and deposit only blog income
Outside of all that learning there was the Social part of Women get Social Philadelphia and boy did we ever! I got to see my Brooklyn homegirl Andrea, meet my tribe member Leslie from Pampers, Play dates and Parties (whom I ADORE) and so many more.
My absolute favorite part about the women get Social conference is that it makes me think way out of the box. You all know I attend lots of conferences, but this is the one conference that turns on light bulbs for me. While I was listening to one presentation in particular, I wrote down 5–FIVE different Ebooks that I want to write…before getting to Women Get Social Philadelphia I really don’t know if those ideas would have been born.
We learned a lot, we laughed even more and the food was pretty decent too. Women Get Social and Bloggy Boot Camp is really one of the only conferences I have been to that gives you the real. No fluff, no beginner coddling, all tangible and extremely useful information. You leave with a library full of knowledge and I can’t wait to go again next year! It is a can’t miss conference.
