Upon the conclusion of the second annual ShesConnectedConference it continues to be apparent that no matter what you callthem, bloggers, mommy bloggers or digital women, this segment ofbloggers has a significant level of influence when it comes to yourbrand.Creating relationships with these digital women is critical. Learningabout them and understanding how to work with them is essential forall brands today. ShesConnected believes that through ongoingengagement, brands can build meaningful connections with some ofthe most influential and well connected digital women in Canada.This year we hosted over 200 highly connected digital women toparticipate in our two day conference. Our sponsors participated inan amazing expo area, where they were able to engage directly withthese influencers. We also generated an impressive 53,000 postsusing the #SCCTO hashtag from July –October.Many of our sponsors trended during our pre-event twitter parties,further re-enforcing the influence of our bloggers. And we areexcited to continue the dialogue into November with our finalconference related Twitter party until we start promotion of our April2012 event.Donna Marie AntoniadisCo-founder & CEO, ShesConnected
