Why getting featured on wedding blogs is STILL relevant
I was watching one of those webinars (seriously out of control habit now!) and this one caught my attention because it was about publicity (the link is at the bottom is you are interested).
Sort of a different topic right?? Anyways, Selena (the speaker) had some great point about how she leverage guest posts, publications and eventually speaking commitments and TV to the advantage of her clients. Serious stuff that got me thinking...our industry might be small, and our publications are certainly not 'Oprah' reach but we shouldn't just dismiss it altogether.
Because I almost live in 'submission' mode, I shared a few ways you can LEVERAGE your publication and editorial work on Instagram.
Didn't catch the LIVE? Here is what went down...
Ok so I am probably biased as most of my business comes from editorials but if you think that I have more skin in the game than anybody out there, then you see how I am always thinking of ways to 'use' the exposure better.
In this video I am sharing:
