When I read those three questions, I didn't hesitate for one second if I would or wouldn't be attending this tour when they stopped in Atlanta, Georgia. Location, date, price, non of those factors crossed my mind because I knew I would be there and this would be a great networking and learning experience for me. Due to the success of this 10 city tour, Chrisette Michele will be continuing on with a mid-west leg of the tour and I highly suggest anyone located and able to attend one of the events in a city near you, you should most definitely attend.
Monday April 13th was the last stop of the 10 city tour and I was in attendance on this day. The venue was B Loft and the set up was amazing. If you're following me on Instagram, as you should be, you know I'm an AKA *Skee Wee* and I love the color pink! It's my power color! The event was pink, pink, and more pink! The set up was very chic, classy, and trendy with beautiful displays of the most delicious cupcakes, sweets, and treats I've ever seen. Everything was so pretty you had to take a step back in awe and take it all in. Flowers and rose petals, diamond like stones and candles, and pink lighting set the scene for a glitz and glamours affair. Also, complimentary Moscato was being served and it was quite tasty. Sadly, being allergic to gluten had me wishing I had eaten before I came to the event. My choices were limited to only marshmallows and chocolate covered strawberries but I was so hungry I had to eat a cupcake/cake pop or two lol and deal with the damage later.
Chrisette led the event as facilitator along with her guest panelist including: Courtney Adeleye, founder of The Mane Choice; Ambrosia Malbrough; and Fash (Lover4_Fashion). These ladies shared tips and insights on growing your media presence, best apps to use, the importance of being genuine, and ways to tweak your craft and stay hungry. The following is my video recap of some of the great advice that was given from all of the ladies.
*Being consistent is the number one thing
*Take the time to connect and engage with your audience
*Continuity gives feeling or a sense of who you are and what you or your brand represents
*Create a sense of trust by being sincere and honest from the beginning
*Listen to your audience and use analytics to see what they like yet remain true to yourself
*Block & Delete; no tolerance for negativity
*Learn your demographic and market to them
*Share without sharing too much; professionalism while keeping it real.
