If you’re a stay-at-home mom, like me, who also likes to build a blog in her “spare time” then you know how challenging life can be to make time for it all.
Raising little ones is no easy feat. You have to attend to their every need, from prepping meals and wiping tushies to dealing with meltdowns and intervening in squabbles.
And then of course there’s always tending to the house and caring for yourself.
So there’s no surprise you may be struggling to fit time in for blogging.
But I’m here to tell you that while it may not ever be an “ideal time” to focus on a new project, you really have to make the time for things if you hope to be successful in them. Especially if you are trying to build an online presence to grow your business or keep up-to-date in the social landscape, for when you do return to the corporate world.
That’s why attending an industry relevant conference is a MUST.
I’ve had the pleasure of attending a plethora of conferences from my marketing experience in the past, so know how valuable the in-person experience can be.
If you’re looking to brush up on SEO, which is essential for anyone putting content on the web, then one conference that you should consider is SoFab On the Road NYC!
SoFabU on the Road is a unique event that allows influencers to take advantage of educational opportunities that will help set them a part from the rest.
It features hands-on, interactive sessions for influencers to implement what they’re learning on the spot. The sessions are paired with fun city-specific adventures where attendees get to practice their newly learned skills.
The keynote at this event will be “How to Use SEO to Supercharge Your Posts” by Jessica Woodbury.
Here’s a little description of the session:
SEO is SO important to our success and most of the SEO advice out there isn’t geared specifically towards single-contributor lifestyle blogs. Jessica will cover basic SEO and specific blogger strategies to work on building search traffic and how to increase domain authority.
This session is for savvy bloggers. Most bloggers at this level are experienced at retaining regular readers and increasing traffic via social media. This presentation will help bloggers consider readers who are finding their blog from search, how to attract them, how to retain them, and how to increase domain authority with a specific SEO-posting strategy so all posts rise in search. This will focus less on technical things like alt tags and meta descriptions and more on writing and photo strategies.
But that’s not all, there will also be talks focusing on Video, Email Marketing, Sponsored posts, networking, and other learning opportunities (check out the agenda on the SoFabUOTR website!)
