Show Me the Money
Making Content Creation Profitable
Join us at Disney World in Florida for a 3-day conference on profitable content creation featuring @ashlelnok, Jeannette Kaplun, Courtney Quinn, Keiko Lynn, Warren Carlyle, Abigail Peugh, and Lynsey Kmetz, plus follow-up roundtable discussions on the final day.
Everyone tells us, “Find your passion. Do what you love.” But we also know the saying, passion (love) doesn’t pay the bills. So how do digital content creators find the opportunities that pay them for what they really like to do? Do these things really exist? Join us as we tap into the resources creators have discovered that help put money in their pockets.
It’s an exciting time to be a content creator, and you don’t want to miss this event. We’ll have experts on affiliate marketing, hear how creators have turned into authors with books in stores, and see how visionaries bring their ideas to life.
Since we’ve missed out on hosting FLOCK events in recent years, we decided to make up some of that time with an event that spans three days!

Then we’ll wrap up day three with a half day of roundtable discussions.
