July New York City Bloggers Launch Event + Meetup Recap

The July New York City Bloggers Meetup & Launch was held this past Saturday at Macy’s flagship Herald Square location in their “STORY” section. We started off our event with a panel of speakers well versed in working with brands. Karen Hopkins (@wanderouskaren), Joanna Lin (@joanna.lin) & Emily Becker (@emmbecks) who are all successful in their own rights, dropped some serious knowledge about things you should and should not do while working with brands or even just trying to get their attention.

Sharing Some of the Takeaways below:

  • If you see other influencers/bloggers working on a campaign with a brand, you can totally go after them too! They may not be able to add you to that particular campaign but could say they have another one coming soon!
  • How do you get on a brands radar? Engage with them on their social channels. Like their photos, comment on them, reply to their stories. Love their product genuinely because that reflects in your work and also how they will work with you.
  • You don’t have to wait until you hit 10K to work with brands! If you have something of value to offer – go for it.

After our panel, we learned about STORY at Macy’s and this month’s theme (outdoor). Our attendees were able to make their very own flower crown with Craft Jam . We loved getting to see everyone’s creations! There was some serious talent in that room! We also had some awesome bites from Macy’s, were able to connect and interact with other like-minded people and gave our members a chance to make some new friends!  Then we sent everyone home with some goodies from Acure Organics, Wandering Bear Coffee, Spindrift, gomacro, and Neutrogena.
