What’s Next for Social Media?
A single-day, social media micro-conference at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida with Carly Anderson, Brandi Riley, Jill Krause, Amiyrah Martin, Tania Lamb, and Patty Holliday.
As bloggers, content creators, influencers, and entrepreneurs, it’s easy to look online and see the success of others and wonder how they got there. What are they doing differently that sets them apart? How can you create a similar presence and voice that keeps people coming back?
Our speakers for this event have created large communities of discussion. Each of them take ordinary content and make it extraordinary, start campaigns that unite women across the world, and get us doing things we normally wouldn’t do. They share their lowest lows and highest highs. They make us belly laugh until we cry. But most importantly, they keep us engaged for years and they’re now part of our daily lives. These story-based content creators have rich and valuable experience and thoughts to share.
Each speaker will share how they got where they are. What brands are looking for when working with them. What they do to keep up with the changing social trends. Where they see social media going. And most importantly, how to tell a great, original, authentic story that will keep your followers engaged and your social space growing.
