Of course social media should already be part of your content strategy, but you should be intentionally planning what content you share. This session will cover:

  • how to discover which platforms you should really focus on
  • how to repurpose your content on social media
  • how to repurpose live broadcasts into your other content
  • how to grow your audience & collaborate with others in your industry.

This session will be led by Connie Bartlett, social media specialist and virtual assistant.

RETREAT ATMOSPHERE

North Georgia Mountains

Relaxation while you learn? Yes please! We're combining hands-on education with yoga pants, wine, and porches with a view. After breakfast each morning, we'll dive into our educational sessions with breaks for snacks and implementation. At the end of each day, we'll enjoy great conversation by the fire, a delicious dinner, and wine! 

ROOM RATE: $200 for 3 nights

*NOTE* Staying in the rental home and dinner both nights is optional, however, encouraged. There are various hotels in the area, and we are happy to help you find accommodations.

Is this a conference?

Nope! Typically, a conference brings together several speakers for various educational sessions, during which time you take notes, then take your notes home to apply what you learned.

Your Content Masterclass is different. All education is delivered in one room by one instructor. Attendees then have time to ask questions, with dedicated time to implement what they learn using their own websites and the workbook provided. No take-home work here!

Is there a hotel shuttle or do I need to rent a car?

There is NOT a shuttle to/from the airport, so plan to grab an Uber and share with a buddy. (Use the Facebook group to find a ride-share buddy!) However, there IS a shuttle that will take you to local restaurants for dinner each night. You will need to make arrangements through the hotel for this.

Are there gluten-free or specialty diet options?

Unfortunately no. We are having breakfast, lunch, and snacks catered by the hotel and will cover that cost. However, if you need special diet options, you will need to order that directly through the hotel restaurant. 

Any other questions?

Just ask! Send an email to kirsten@sweetteallc.co

What if I'm brand new?

First of all, hey girl HEY! If you are brand spankin' new to the online business or blogging world, chances are you're pretty overwhelmed already. There's a lot to learn!

While the information provided in Your Content Masterclass will prove helpful for any level of blogger or online creative, if you don't have a basic working knowledge of Google Analytics or blogging, this might be too advanced for you. 

And if you don't have a website yet, you won't be able to do any of the work involved in this class.

What's the room share situation?

You can request a double-occupancy room and share with your friends. You can also use our Facebook group to find a roommate and split the cost, if you don't have a friend attending with you!

What should I pack/What's the dress code?

We want Your Content Masterclass to be as comfortable as it is valuable, so please don't stress about a wardrobe. You'll be sitting the majority of the day, so pack comfortable clothing. You are on your own for dinner each night, so you may want to bring something a bit more than yoga pants for that.

Other than clothing, be sure to bring your laptop and charger cord. Anything else you need to make yourself comfortable, feel free!
