Wow! What an awesome couple of days! The Indie Biz Chicks Conference was AWESOME! I know I’m biased – but I thought we had some amazing sessions! I learned so much!
For example, Amy Schroeder’s session gave me some great ideas about starting an intern program (watch for that soon!) and Jenny Hart definitely taught me a lot in her session on protecting your work with copyrights.
Maggie McDonald’s session also stood out for me. She taught us about promoting an online event to promote your brand. Now, I think I have done a pretty good job to establish the Indie Biz Chicks brand … but I do think I need to step up my game on branding my name — as in Crissy Herron. (I even started a new Twitter account @CrissyHerron, so follow me there… @IndieBizChicks isn’t going anywhere, so don’t worry!)
Gwen Bell did a fantastic job as well, and I love how she intertwined her Chicken Nugget, Chicken Bucket, Chicken Dinner theory : ) Laura Allen taught us how to create a 15 second pitch and Kelly Wilkinson gave out some great ideas on how to pitch the press, and Handmade Detroit did some great tips on craft shows!!
I will be sending out a proper “thank you” to everyone who spoke, sponsored, and helped to promote this. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you! But right now – it is the end of a long two days, and I am going to go take a moment to breathe : )
But for now… THANK YOU. And be on the watch for the proper one : )
