Build Your Influence In Less Than Two Weeks

 I am a Brand Ambassador for Build Your Influence and am sharing my thoughts and opinions of attending this event in the past and sharing an affiliate code as a part of my ambassadorship. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Build Your Influence

In the past 8 years that I’ve been in the influencer space I’ve attended many different workshops, classes, and conferences. Some are great social events where we can meet with different brands and sponsors one-on-one and get the inside scoop on some of our favorite brands. Others are more into the technical side of curating and publishing online content.

Community, Connections, and Lots of Learning

Last year I attended Build Your Influence Summit and left with so many amazing benefits. Community and connections to other influencers just like me, knowledge in various aspects of the technical side such as optimizing your site and income by working smarter and not harder, and a better sense of direction for Friendspired.

Working full time (and then some) outside of the home, being a parent to a 3 year old sassy, spirited little one, and managing everyday life tends to leave me feeling overwhelmed and unfocused when it comes to the direction and content for Friendspired. I look forward to Build Your Influence because it helps me to devise a game plan and roadmap for the future of the site.

Learn From The Experts

I am very much looking forward to learning from colleagues and leaders in their own areas of expertise. Some of which I have the pleasure of being friends with, and others I’ve had the pleasure of hearing speak previously.

Maria-Bailey-Headshot-New-300x240I am most excited to learn from Keynote Speaker: Maria Bailey. I have had the honor of attending SheStreams in 2011 and learned so much from her. She is a driving force in influencing and marketing to Moms. She is certainly the leader and trusted authority to today’s top brands. Her latest book, “Millennial Moms: 202 Facts Markets Need to Know to Build Brands and Drive Sales” is spot on and definitely provides amazing insight into how to reach and work with influencers.

headshot-2016-Colleen-Padilla-smallColleen Padilla, a local influencer that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since I started blogging a million years ago because of Philly Social Media Moms. Colleen is the founder and editor of – Colleen and the Classy Mommy website have been featured on The Today Show, Fox News, Good Morning America, The New York Times, Parenting Magazine, The New York Post, local Philadelphia ABC, CBS, and NBC programs. Colleen has appeared in a TV special about Alpha Moms on South Korea’s NBC affiliate SBS. She also co-authored The Digital Mom Handbook, which is a great tool. I referenced this countless times when it was released.

Joyce-Shulman-Profile-Pic-higher-res-203x300I think one of the topics that I’m looking forward to learning about is Avoiding Burnout from Joyce Shulman. She’s Chief Macaroni Mom! So she knows a thing or two about juggling it all and then some. A self-proclaimed Idea junkie, Entrepreneur, Addicted skier, & Recovering lawyer!

I often struggle on trying to find a balance to doing it all – working full time outside the home, mama to a 3 year old, wife to supportive hubby – and reality is, we are all so close to that dreaded burn out. So don’t mind me if I’m taking copious notes or in a tweeting frenzy during this session!

Reesa-LewandowskiI definitely cannot wait to learn from my friend Reesa! I will admit I’m a pinterest junkie, but I haven’t got the slightest method to my madness. None! I just #pinallthethings. Reesa is one of the most down to earth and honest women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Reesa found it her passion to enlighten fellow parents on how to take time to enjoy their lives and take the stress out of parenthood. She started blogging in 2010 after staying home for a few years with her son and missed the everyday conversation of adult life.

Anne-ParrisI have found the most community and connections in private Facebook Groups. So I’m definitely looking forward to Anne Parris’s session on just that. Anne Parris is a recovering corporate accountant, a blogger at Not A Supermom, and the Managing Partner of Midlife Boulevard, an on-line magazine for women over 40 and 50. Anne is also one of the partners behind the BAM conference, the only event focused on women bloggers in midlife. Anne lives with her husband in their half-empty nest near Richmond, Virginia.

saramerritt-768x513For those attending that are looking to leave the 9 to 5 and become their own boss, Sara Merritt’s session will highlight on how Use Your Skills to Start a Freelance Social Media & Writing Business. Sara Merritt is owner of Sara Merritt Creative Services, a social media marketing & web design firm in Lewisburg, PA.

After attending the first Build Your Influence Summit, Sara took a cannon-ball sized leap into web design, social media marketing , and freelance content creation as a full time endeavor.

gloverSaving the best for last, I say this because I’m definitely biased as she’s one of my very closest friends – Stephanie Glover. Not only does she crack me up on a daily basis, is a mentor in many ways, enables my Hamilton obsession, and encourages me to #planallthethings but she’s a pretty incredible person. (Remember this after she kills me for using this image for this segment.)

Stephanie will be showing everyone how to Rock Their Cameras! Her session is a hands on, in-depth, up close and personal learning experience to assist you in producing some incredible photos for your site.

You also have to give credit where credit is due to the ladies behind this amazing event. Megan Galko of NEPA Mom and Jenna Urban of Bucktown Bargains. The Build Your Influence Summit is the brainchild of these two bloggers and friends who realized that their Influence is more powerful when they work together.

With that in mind, they created the Build Your Influence Summit.  This conference is geared towards bloggers and entrepreneurs looking to successfully grow their influence by developing skills needed to grow their audience and cultivate relationships with brands and other entrepreneurs. I can promise you that the conference does just that! AND MORE!!

We would love for you to join us, it is an event that is well worth the investment of your time and money. The connections, community, and knowledge that is cultivated during this event comes back and encourages in so many ways!

In less than 2 weeks this event will take place. Tickets are still available, and you can purchase them with a 20% discount using my affiliate code ‘JenniferGaffney’ at checkout.
