Lunch and Learn with @IntroNYC
On Tuesday afternoon I had the opportunity to attend a Lunch and Learn with different women in the digital space who came together to discuss the latest trends in media, blogging, social media and everything else in between. This months meet up was at Ayza Wine and Chocalte Bar in Midtown. I had the Honey Maple Turkey Panini with Arugula Salad and a side of Tomato Cheddar Soup. It was simply divine. The cozy atmosphere was perfect for an afternoon meet and greet.
These gathering are an awesome way to intimately connect, share information and build relationships over good food and great conversation. It was a pleasure to meet Lourdes of Pls Do Tell a blog dedicated to fashion brands that have philanthropic initiatives and Dee of DeeShoots an awesome photographer who has been featured in Elle and Refinery 29 to name a few.
I had the pleasure to attend Lunch and Learn thanks to the masterminds behind Intro NYC Allison and Stephanie. Intro NYC connects bloggers to brands, they say B2B has a new meaning, B2B= Brands to Bloggers, and we could not agree more. Cheers to many more connections, collaborations and ongoing conversations.
Here are some gems I took away from the chat on best social media practices-
1. Try to not to feed into the negative comments. Reply as politely as possible.
2. Cross promote with other bloggers to increase followers and gain visibility.
3. Post at least 5 times a day to maximize engagement from followers and gain new ones.
