The Engaged Workshop
Hosted by Engaged, 60 people gathered for an intimate workshop in the heart of Birmingham. It was the perfect kickoff for the year and not only did I learn from the speakers there, I also had the honor of speaking about networking and the creative mindset. This is one of my favorite things to speak on because not only does it get those attending motivated and moving around the room but it also solidifies a feeling of togetherness once the exercise is complete.

Ya’ll know I love what SEO can do for my business so it was great to listen to Greg from GT Marketing share his knowledge regarding all things website and SEO. It isn’t a one and done solution but if cultivated can help grow your presence in an ever shifting market. The biggest thing is not to sound like a robot when writing. Still struggling with SEO, give Greg a call.
I have always had a love hate relationship with Facebook ads but I have to say that after listening to Caryn of Social U I am actually willing to consider revisiting it. Despite the confusing look of the Ads Manager, Caryn was able to easily explain how to navigate and best use ads for your business. I look forward to seeing it pay off in my business. If you weren’t able to attend the workshop, you should definitely check out the classes and services she offers to entrepreneurs. The topic of Facebook ads flowed well into hearing from Jett Walker Photography next about branding. Not only should we be using Facebook Ads to get our work out there but it should be branded well and truly reflect who you are and not who the someone else tells you to be.
Southern Wedding Trends
Michelle of Alabama Weddings Magazine shared all about upcoming wedding trends in the new year. From the types of wedding dresses we should expect to see to changes in floral design, decor, and colors. This fed perfectly into Meghan from Two Bright Lights sharing the most perfect recipe for vendors submitting to be published. It was such a joy to speak alongside these awesome creatives in the industry and I look forward to doing it again soon.
