{Recap} SoFlo Brunch x SXSW Meet-Up

With plans to take the SoFlo Brunch Series on the road, Austin was the first stop! 

This was a meet-up to introduce the brunch and the creative platform to SXSW- goers. I was excited for Jason Francis, the Social Media Samurai to join the event as a co-speaker and share his experience as a blogger and online influencer in tech, travel, and social media! 

Just a few things we went over:
  • How Influence is seen as the new currency online.
  • Benefits of being authentic online
  • Setting online brand goals to become an authoritative voice/influencer
  • Knowing your audience
  • Engaging and networking your ass off on and offline
  • The art of participating in Tweet Chats and other online events
  • Return-On-Influence
  • And the path to Brand Advocacy
In addition to the presentation, I was able to connect with movers that is making noise in the digital, mobile, and philanthropic world.

Thank you to special guest speaker, Jason Francis aka the Social Media Samurai for his insight. Jason is knowledgable in social media, blogging, and the art of influence. Check him out: @trueomeganexus

{event recap} SoFloBrunch Series At The Federal Miami

I just want to thank the attendees for joining the SoFlo Brunch Series at The Federal Food, Drink, and Provisions in Miami!

The special guest, John Saunders is not only passionate about Content Marketing, but we found out he is a funky sock connoisseur. John provided tips on how to create valuable messages, automate content, direct traffic flow, and become the Director of your own content.

Great digital marketing advice and suggestions flowed steadily and even inspired me to place some suggestions into motion. A Bruncher got an idea and even set up a blog site after we discussed how to make our contents/sites effective. Talk about real-time digital business moves!

Find The Right Influencers To Grow Your Blog!

While trying to figure out the secrets of growing a blog site, Rebbeca Price became inspired Influence Marketing by Danny Brown and Firoella. Rebecca Price has provided a lot of details on how to align with influencers to grow your blog or site.

This post will show you how to expand your reach, increase your audience, get more social shares, become an industry influencer and attract more traffic to your blog.

Finding industry influencers

If you have been operating within your niche/industry for a while, then you will probably have a good idea who the key influencers are and, while they should certainly be on your list of targets, don’t forget the ‘new rising stars’.
These people can potentially carry a lot of weight and your list should never be limited to just a few influencers. This works best at scale.
You will need to put together a list of your target influencers and there are some key pieces of information about them that you should keep track of:
