I’m speaking at Bloggy Boot Camp!

Good morning everyone! I’m thrilled to share that I’ll be speaking at the Chicago Bloggy Boot Camp Brand Edition in November, the fifth stop on this year’s conference schedule! If you’ve ever wanted to learn how better to work with brands and monetize your blog, then Chicago is the place you need to be on November 2 and 3!

  • Dates: November 2-3, 2012
  • Tickets: $225
  • Location: Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago {We’ve got a great room rate for downtown Chicago! More details on the Bloggy Boot Camp page.}

The event will kickoff Friday afternoon and evening networking directly with brands, while Saturday is reserved for a  full day of education presented not only by bloggers, like myself, but also the PR and brand professionals you want to reach!

Here are a few of the topics for Chicago’s Bloggy Boot Camp Brand Edition:

  • Paid Blogging Campaigns: How to partner with a brand to successfully execute a paid campaign on your blog.
  • Brand Ambassadors: Becoming a brand ambassador/social media spokesperson can be a very lucrative opportunity for bloggers. Learn how to pitch and secure these positions.
  • Work/Life Balance: We all talk about achieving a balance between our online and offline worlds, but how do people really do this? Learn sure-fire techniques to succeed online while managing to not lose sight of the people who really matter.
  • Managing Social Media for Businesses: Monetizing your blog isn’t the only way to make money online. Another option is to manage social media for a business. Learn how to put your skills to use by growing social media accounts and increasing the bottom line for businesses.
  • How to Get Help, aka Be More Effective and Work Less: What if it were possible to clone yourself and get more done online? You can, but only if you consider getting an intern or assistant. Let us help you understand how to secure a paid (or unpaid) employee, what to look for in a candidate, and where to find people.

    I just started blogging a few months ago. Would this conference be appropriate for me? I don’t have much of an audience yet and I’m not really sure how to build one. Thanks!
