BlogHer

Did you know the average attendee of BlogHer spends $3,000 – $4,000 on their trip? Airfare, hotel, ground transportation, food … not to mention the incidentals required for a professional appearance :: business cards, professional clothing, the list can go on & on.

Only to arrive and be overwhelmed by the sheer mass of the conference.

  • Sessions to attend
  • exhibitors to view
  • meetings to make
  • networking to be done.

It can be exhausting. {especially if you’re not used to “selling yourself”!}

I’m asking Bloggers the following:

  • Do you wish you could attend BlogHer this year but can’t afford it?
  • Do you have a hard time connecting with the exhibitors and sometimes wish you had an “advocate” or “liaison” that could represent you and your Blog?
  • Are you stretched too thin at BlogHer and feel like you’re missing the “upcoming trends” in the industry?

If you answered yes to any (or all of the above) then it’s time for us to talk!

Hi there!

I’m April Welch and I’ve been around the blog-o-sphere for several years, not as a Blogger but as a Connector.

My “little black book” contains contacts as large as Samsung, Lazy-Boy and Gatorade to as boutique as Honest Tea, Boiron and StandzOut.

I always attend BlogHer with a plan and love getting Bloggers connected to the right fit in a way that is sustainable AND profitable.

After making connections for friends over the years and running blogger outreach campaigns, I decided it was time to step it up a bit and head to San Jose with an official Portfolio of Bloggers!

Are you interested?
