Branding Workshop: Create Your Blogging Brand Strategy to Stand Out and Work With the Brands You Love.

Do you want to earn more money with influencer campaigns? Do you have a clear branding strategy in place for your blog?

It’s about more than just your logo, colors, and fonts. While visual branding is important, you need to have a clear branding strategy that defines your why and the purpose of your blog.

Your personal brand plays a huge role with the brands that want to work with you to produce sponsored content. In this interactive workshop led by Aimee, Felissa, and Chloe from the BlogPaws team, you’ll learn how to create a strong branding strategy and get insider tips about what the brands are looking for when it comes to selecting influencers.
