Blended Conference Benefits
Who doesn’t love to share good news? My good news is that I am an ambassador for the upcoming Blended Conference in Arizona. This means I get to share good news about how awesome this conference is. The benefits of this conference seem to be endless but you get to decide what fits your blog best!
Thankfully, I was able to attend the conference in 2014. I learned some valuable information that I was able to implement on my blog. I also made some lasting friendships with fellow bloggers. I learned things that I didn’t realize I needed to know, especially when it comes to search engine optimization (SEO). Before the conference, I don’t think SEO had ever really crossed my mind but now I know just how important it is. Without implementing SEO tactics, your blog is essentially fending for itself. It’s receiving no external help and will probably be quite low on a search engine results page, limiting its visibility and allowing other blogs to get more readers. By using appropriate SEO tools, your blog can begin ranking better on a search engine results page and begin to reach a wider audience, meaning more readers, which is exactly what we want! SEO can be quite confusing at times but that’s no problem when there are companies like Victorious there to help. I’ll admit, it took me a while to get used to it and I did have to reach out to some industry professionals for a little guidance but now, I have the knowledge to help my site rank better. Other things I discovered was how to take a better photo and how to pitch to brands so they will want to work with me. I had two WOW moments from last year that included hearing from Maria Bailey from Mom Talk Radio. She is one talented and smart business woman. My second was taking head shots with Kate from Songs Kate Sang. They turned out beautiful and I highly recommend her photography skills.
This year is going to be just as spectacular. The lineup of speakers is nonetheless than jaw dropping. I know my highlight this year will be hearing from the well-known Tiffany Romero of the Sits Girls and Sway Group. She is down to earth and has some major knowledge to drop on the attendees. Another benefit is getting to know the speakers. I love getting to know new bloggers! Take a look at this list of talented speakers!
- Beth Peterson from Yummy Nation
- Kate Ahl from Simple Pin Media
- Sara Hawkins from Saving for Someday
- Kathy Cano-Murillo from Crafty Chica
- Kristen Forgione from The LifeStyled Company
- Katie Hornor from Como Blog
- Liz Latham from Hoosier Homemade
This year the schedule looks interesting and still different from last year. It looks like we will be covering how to attract opportunity. I am excited about this one simply because I want to be busy with my blog and business! Something I can never get enough of is Pinterest and Photography. I know this is critical to building a Pinterest following. One you won’t want to miss is legal related and talks about trademark and copyright. She even goes into tax concerns. All the subjects can benefit any blogger, experienced or green!
If I still haven’t convinced you to attend the 2015 Blended Conference in Phoenix, perhaps you are a know it all and can help me with some of these issues. Seriously though, take a look at the hotel! Not only can you get your room for $99 but you get water park tickets too! The family can join in on your fun too! The discounted rate for Blended tickets ends on May 1st so you have to act fast. DO IT NOW!
I hope to see you there. Now tell me what you are looking forward to the most!
