For December's meetup, our very own journalist turned blogger, Christian Toto, will share with us how creating the right content is crucial to getting traffic, keeping readers engaged and ultimately making money. Christian is an award-winning writer, member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and a radio talk show host.
Christian has a unique approach to creating content for his blog, pulling upon his years as a professional journalist and a knack for knowing what people want to read. If you're looking to improve your blog's content in 2017, this is a MUST ATTEND event.
Christian is going to share with you:
1. Simple tweaks you can make to your content and writing style that can help you boost your traffic
2. The importance of high quality writing, headlines and news hooks for getting sponsors and loyal readers
3. How to turn timely news topics into posts that get you tons of traffic (you'll leave with 10+ timely topics to write about)
4. How to plan your content for 2017 (you'll leave with an editorial calendar filled with topics to write about in the New Year)
You're going to be so inspired and ready to tackle 2017 like a journalist! Sign up now to join us. I'm counting on you all to attend!
Our sponsor is Latigo Denver, a family-owned modern Mexican restaurant near Coors field. I have not tried Latigo yet but the menu looks delicious!! You will be provided with free food in addition to this awesome learning opportunity with Christian.
I've limited the event to 20 attendees, so your RSVP is crucial to reserving your spot.
As always, if you attend the event, you are required to give social media love to our sponsors. I'm not just talking about a little half-hearted Tweet, but please share a photo and testimonial on your social channels... and if you're inclined, a blog post too. Our sponsors are generously providing a place for us to meet and free food, and I've spent my own time planning these events so I appreciate the support. Thank you to everyone who has been so generous in supporting our sponsors!
Remember, the hashtag for all events is #DenverBloggersClub.
New Rule: You must have a current, active blog that falls in the food, family, lifestyle or local interests category in order to attend our free live events. (Current means you have written a blog post and have had social posts in the last 30 days.)
Thanks everyone for helping make this group GREAT!
