Blogging Workshop for Wedding Professionals - Raleigh, NC

I am so excited to post this exciting announcement I just received. I can't wait to attend this workshop.

Elite Bridal Conceirge of Raleigh, NC will be hosting a blogging workshop brought to you by Liene Stevens of The Smart Planner. If you are a wedding professional and are interested in improving your presence on the web through blogging, this is the workshop for you.

Here is all of the info!

Who: Any wedding professional who wants to effectively leverage online media to grow their business

When: Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Time: 9 am - 4 pm

Where: The Mitch Leonard Conference Room

Cost: $150 per person

Since the launch of the Blue Orchid Blog in 2006, it has grown to include over 3000 unique daily visitors and is partially to credit for the launch of two new Blue Orchid Designs offices on the East Coast.

In the Blogging Bootcamp, Liene will share specific strategies and techniques she has personally used to grow the Blue Orchid Designs blog to where it is today.

This workshop is open to all wedding professionals, not just wedding planners. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis so reserve your spot now! Laptops are optional and lunch will be provided.

Topics covered will include:
  • How to discover and leverage your blogging voice

  • How to maximize your blogging ROI

  • How to develop killer content - consistently

  • How to set short term and long term goals for your blog
  • How to effectively analyze your stats and blog traffic
  • How to increase your readership and keep them coming back for more
  • Specific strategies and techniques to use your blog to improve your main website's SEO or "findability" on Google
  • How to promote your brand through your blog's design and content
  • Maintaining professional boundaries while still being personable
  • And more!
The Blogging Bootcamp will not be a class on blogging philosophy. You already know that blogging is a good idea. We'll be showing you how to do it so that it is worth your time. No topic will be off the table, and any questions you may have will be fair game.
