The Style Collective Conference ’18 Is Coming To Raleigh, N.C. (And IFB Has A Deal On Tickets!)

Calling all #girlboss fashion bloggers and influencers! If you haven't heard Style Collective's SC Conference 2018 is coming to Raleigh, N.C.

Style Collective – a platform for female influencers to connect, grow, and learn how to be successful bloggers and entrepreneurs – is hosting its first conference in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 14 and 15. If you couldn't make it to SIMPLY NYC or SIMPLY Dubai, here's your chance to network with other ladies within the blogging and influencer marketing industry.

SC Conference 2018

The SC Conference 2018 promises to be the perfect balance of learning, networking, and most importantly, doing! After all we've all left conferences before with a huge to-do lists, but no time to actually do #allthethings. And the last thing the gals at Style Collective want to do is keep you hanging…

The conference will give you the opportunity to make new friends; define a clear purpose for your blog and/or social media accounts; help you discover new ways of connecting with others through audio and video; and give you the power to create a distinct vision for your voice and brand. Talks with industry elites aim to help you in connecting with your readers – and marketers and brands – along with how to plan out an entire year's worth of content. 

At the end of the weekend Style Collective wants you to leave Raleigh feeling inspired but, most importantly, with the drive to collaborate, practice new blogging-related skills, and kick some serious blogging butt!
