Pinterest 101 Class with Bloguettes


We all know that Pinterest is a mega force in the social media world. In fact, it's the 3rd largest social platform and it's only 4 years old (Facebook is 10 and Twitter is 8). Pinterest is also responsible for 43% of e-commerce referral traffic. That's a BIG slice of the pie for being only four years old! If you are a small business owner or blogger looking to have a strong social presence you definitely need to be on Pinterest, but what to do with your account is another question. How do you grow a following? How do you get people to repin your images? How do you get traffic back to your site? Those are the questions everyone is asking, and those are the questions I'm going to answer at my Pinterest 101 class with the Bloguettes.

Be there! Register here!

Date: Wednesday, November 12th Time: 6pm to 8pm Place: Wela Creative Studio (7147 E. Rancho Vista Drive, Ste. B37 in Optima Camelview) Cost: $35

I hope you can make it! It's going to be a lot of fun!

Speaking at Craft Culture


Last week I shared a little teaser on Instagram about Craft Culture - an upcoming workshop for small businesses. Insta only gives you so much space, so I thought I would fill you in on what Craft Culture is and what I'll be talking about. Craft Culture was started by Leanne Cairns an accessories designer (Belyn Design) who is from Arizona, but now lives in California. One of her dreams was to sell her creations at her favorite store, Anthropologie. Her dream came true this past year, and when that happened she realized that she wanted to be a part of helping entrepreneurs find success and achieve their dreams. Through business workshops, networking meet-ups and creative retreats, creatives will get to spend time with industry leaders in a small intimate setting to pick their brains and hear from their personal experiences.

Check out this video to see what I mean. (You might see a familiar face)
