Many jobs require continuing education credits. These training courses keep you up to date on information in your field and can strengthen our skills. Bloggers can benefit from these learning experiences too and most of these opportunities come in the form of conferences. Unfortunately, these conferences can sometimes be on the other side of the country. I love that Collective Bias understands this and has created a conference “tour” for the SOcial Fabric community. And I am so excited that SoFabU on the Road is coming to Ohio! On Saturday April 25th, The Hashtags, #SoFabUOTR will be in Cincinnati at the Ahalogy offices.
Are you a blogger? Live near Cincy? Read more about what you can expect from SoFab on the Road in Cincinnati:
Speaker Joe Robb is a thoughtful communicator with a diverse background in marketing strategy, pedagogy, digital media, SEO, editing and writing. He is the Digital Marketing Director at SparkPeople.com, a multi-platform media and technology company with leading health, fitness and food websites and mobile apps.
Attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of how to pair analytics data (Google, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook) with common, free publishing tools to grow their audience with data-driven processes. With the tactics provided, you will increase your site traffic without dramatically increasing the amount of time you currently dedicate to social media.
Also, Nate Engels will walk through creating a custom recipe around a brand’s product and how he tells a story around the recipe that will draw the reader into the emotional tie to the brand and blog post. From styling the plate, to the props, lighting and background, we’ll learn how to create a visual gourmet image. He’ll show how he takes beautiful photos (even without natural light) and manipulates the images to spotlight the food. We’ll form groups where we will use props and creativity to produce photos on the spot. Then Nate will share how to make so-so photos into WOW! Shareable images through simple techniques and tools like Picmonkey.
See the day’s agenda on the SoFabUOTR website! Will I be seeing you there?
I am writing this post in exchange for a discounted conference ticket; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone.
