Guest Blogger Margo and Me Talks Simply Stylist Fashion & Beauty Conference at The Grove!

Margo and Me

I couldn’t be more excited to be speaking at our city’s best fashion and beauty conference, Simply Stylist this Saturday! With branding and PR being at the core of my career path, I’m excited to share my unique perspective on what it takes to build your brand.

With over a million blogs out there, it can be confusing to navigate your way through the steps to get started, maintain and grow! I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned along the way. I’ve outlined a few topics I will be speaking to below, but it’s my hope that these topics raise more questions from attendees. This conversation is not just for bloggers, as I will be speaking to branding, it will be very helpful for brands and anyone looking to break into the fashion industry as well. Can’t wait to see you there!

Topics I’ll Be Discussing:

-  Defining your three core values; I will also be sharing mine which are also known as the three C’s; Consistency, creativity and compassion.

- With the internet and social media being at everyones mobile fingertips the very first step in the branding process is to identify your brand in terms of how you want to be perceived by others and what makes you unique – then letting this guide your visual identity.

-  Determining what social media channels you will be promoting your blog through and sticking to them. I will also be speaking about the reality of how you should be growing your numbers!

-  How to approach the dreaded media outreach, pitching yourself to editorial outlets and brands.

-  The importance of creating an editorial calendar and sticking to it.
