Never in my life would I have ever imagined having my very own bobble head! It’s actually kind of cool! I guess this is the one time being called a bobble head is actually a compliment? 🙂
I’m excited to announce that I have been selected as a Brand Ambassador for the ShesConnected Conference 2012. I was invited to attend the conference last Fall, and had a fabulous time. I met up with other social media women I had been communicating with for a year or so (some even longer!). I also learned quite a lot about social media, branding, and relationships with brands, what our blogs can convey to others and even how social media can ‘do good’ (examples: Look Good, Feel Better’s story about Tamara’s Wig, Heather Hamilton’s story of her lovely Zack and Zack’s Dream Room) from the panels and speakers.
While at the conference, I was able to get to know some of the brands better and from SCCTO I developed great working relationships with some of the sponsors there. I received many opportunities from SCCTO and after. It seemed that the network I was already building (can I tell you how much I love Twitter?!) grew bigger immediately after the conference. Soon after, I was offered opportunities I never thought I’d get. For me, it isn’t about the number of opportunities one gets, but more importantly, the relationships you build.
By the sounds of things, this year is going to be a very exciting one over at ShesConnected! Thanks again to everyone at ShesConnected. I am looking forward to being a Brand Ambassador and seeing everyone at the conference this Fall!
In the meantime, I think you should “meet” the other ShesConnected Brand Ambassadors!
