I am writing this post in exchange for a discounted conference ticket; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. #SoFabUOTR #cbias
I have been blogging for about 4 years and have never attended a blogging conference. Until now! I am a member of Collective Bias and they are having a one-day conference in New York City on June 20. Since it is only a couple hours away, I am finally going to a blogging conference!
SoFabU on the Road
What is SoFabU on the Road? SoFabU on the Road is a one-day event that allows bloggers to learn ways to set themselves apart from the rest. It features hands-on, interactive sessions for bloggers to implement what they learn right on the spot. The sessions are paired with a fun city-specific adventure where you’ll get to put your newly learned skills to test. The NYC adventure is a Photo Safari tour of the city. The events are open to all bloggers and are sponsored nationally by Müller, Kraft and iBlog.
SoFabUOTR NYC Agenda at a Glance
If you join me in NYC, here is some of what you will do:
- How to excel with Sponsored Posts’ panel discussion
- Growing your Influence and Traffic with Email Marketing, by Phil Hollows, FeedBlitz
- How to Use SEO to Supercharge Your Posts, by Jessica Woodbury
SEO is SO important to our success and most of the SEO advice out there isn’t geared specifically towards single-contributor lifestyle blogs. Jessica will cover basic SEO and specific blogger strategies to work on building search traffic and how to increase domain authority.
This session is for savvy bloggers. Most bloggers at this level are experienced at retaining regular readers and increasing traffic via social media. This presentation will help bloggers consider readers who are finding their blog from search, how to attract them, how to retain them, and how to increase domain authority with a specific SEO-posting strategy so all posts rise in search. This will focus less on technical things like alt tags and meta descriptions and more on writing and photo strategies.
- How to incorporate and improve your Video Content by Josh Hicks
- Afternoon Education Adventure: NYC Photo Safari
- Happy Hour
Sounds like a great day and I can’t wait!
Date: June 20th
Location: 54 W 40th St, New York, NY 10018
