All because of blogging, Social Connections, LLC came about. My passion for connecting others and helping businesses grow is what I love to do. After all, who doesn’t like to be a part of something grand, right? I know I sure do!
I have met many leaders in the blogging industry over the past five years and it’s through their dedication that I was able to see myself in a leadership role. North Iowa is where I reside and I love that local folks are embracing social media and are grasping the idea that social media does matter. There is a lot of work to be done and I look forward to being a part of the positive changes that social media can bring to North Iowa. Social media reaches far beyond North Iowa, as it allows us to connect with folks all around the world.
Businesses and bloggers are working together 24/7. It’s through these partnerships that amazing things can happen! I am continually asked, “Where can I learn more about social media?” I can tell you that Social Connections, LLC, is planning several events that will help business owners understand and better utilize social media. There are also several events all around the world where you can meet industry leaders and learn a lot of information!
Pat Palmer, of The Computer Guy, recently attended EntreFest in Iowa City, Iowa, and this is what he had to say about this Iowa event. “It was a great time for entrepreneurs to get together to exchange ideas, learn from experts and to pick up valuable nuggets from the many guest speakers they had at the conference. This was my 7th time and I’m going back next year as well!” This is just one, of several, social media events where you can learn more about the industry.
Donna Hup, of DonnaHup.com, attended an event that Social Connections, LLC, hosted in Mason City on May 20th and she had this to say, “It was so great to see local North Iowa businesses come together to better themselves and our region.”
Bloggers often ask me, “What blog conferences are out there?” Here are a few that are out there and I might add, I have attended most of these or known bloggers that have, and highly recommended these conferences. These are the places where you meet fellow leaders in the blogging industry, connect with brands, and learn about social media.
- Bloggy Conference
- Type A Parent Conference
- Bloggy Boot Camp
- Blended Conference
It is true, when you step out of your comfort zone to learn new things and meet new people, exciting things will happen in your life. The people that I have met while networking at conferences have literally changed my life. The connections I have made, have helped me grow a successful business. If it can happen to me, it can also happen to you.
I challenge you to attend a social media event in the near future. Locally, nationally, or internationally- you will be grateful that you did!
I look forward to seeing you at one of the events that Social Connections, LLC, will be hosting in the near future!
