I wanted to take a quick pause from this month’s blog party to share an amazing opportunity that’s coming up in Denver in just a few weeks. Part of why having a blog party is so much fun is the chance to get to build an online community of writers who support and encourage each other. I am having so much fun working alongside these creative ladies and I couldn’t be more happy that I’m sharing my space with them over the next couple of weeks.
Outside of blogging, I’ve been working in online marketing since graduating from college. When I first entered the workforce, social media was a new tool that no one quite had a handle on. I spent a year studying generational behaviors and developing an understanding of how people were creating and engaging with content online. Now nearly ten years later, I’ve built my career as a digital marketing expert, working with non-profit organizations, small businesses and corporations. I love the fast paced nature of online marketing and I am constantly working to continue to improve my skills and learn – which is why I launched a blog in the first place.
When learning and building an online community intersect – really exciting things can happen. I’ve attended dozens of conferences and I love getting to meet virtual friends face to face and be inspired to try new ideas that came about during the conference sessions. One of the best parts about being a both blogger and a marketer is that attending conferences allows me to look at the event from two sides.
I can connect with other bloggers or connect with brand marketers. I can share my knowledge and learn from the presenters. I can build relationships that help me create better content and find new people to collaborate with both on and off line.
In just a few weeks, Type-A West is convening in downtown Denver and bloggers and brands will be joining together for three full days of networking, education and community. I am always excited for the opportunity to check out a conference in my home town and I can’t wait to get to meet everyone who’s traveling in for the event.
Tickets are really affordable and include access to the expo hall and evening parties outside of the workshops and sessions during the day. At $250 for a three day conference you can’t beat the price. If you’d like to join in on the fun, be sure to use the coupon code FRIENDOFANNE to receive a 25% off your registration or booth fee. Let me know if you’ll be there so we can meet up in person!
