As a professional blogger and business owner, I often get asked what advice would I give to new bloggers or new digital marketers. My answer will always include for them to attend workshops and conferences. As a former PR executive for the federal government, conferences, tradeshows, workshops etc were an essential part of marketing and business goals. The educational resources and the networking opportunities were ones that could only be found when attending events. The same concept applies to the digital media world – bloggers and digital influencers learn, connect and network at conferences.
Blogging and social media conferences occur throughout the year all over the country so it’s always a very good (and affordable) opportunity to find a local conference. Last weekend I had the pleasure of once again speaking at the Florida Bloggers & Social Media Conference which was held at the digital-friendly Full Sail University.
This year I had the great opportunity to speak with my fellow Social Influenz co-founders, Yadira and Sili on a 2.0 version of working with brands (that included resources and tips for submitting a professional presentation back to the brand after a pitch has been approved).
Pat Williams was the opening keynote and shared the following valuable life and business:
There were so many great presentations on everything from how to build a better media kit to informative social media success takeaways from closing keynote Pam Moore.
Its was a truly a great experience to not only be among influential bloggers, social media influencers and marketers at #FLBlogCon13 but to also connect, network and share together. Thanks to the great sponsors of the conference, like Ford and Bahama Breeze, and the planning team led by the wonderful Bess Auer!
