American Pet Professionals formerly (Long Island Pet Professionals), is hosting a brand new workshop for pet business owners and pet rescuers alike: ‘Your Pet Blog Matters’ and Pet Author Mastermind Session! The workshop is taken place on Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 2pm- 6pm at the Learning Center at the National Opera Center of America 330 Seventh Avenue New York City, NY 10001, just a couple blocks from Penn Station.
“As someone who has been blogging for the pet industry and for pet parents for the past 6 years, I have met amazing people in the pet industry and have written about incredible pet stories. However, I have noticed that many pet professionals do not take advantage of the blogosphere to help promote their businesses or pet expertise. This workshop is a perfect fit for those who want to blog better, understand how to use their blogs to increase traffic to their websites, and for those thinking about getting into the blogging world,” said, Nancy E. Hassel, President of American Pet Professionals. “We are so thrilled to have M. Shannon Hernandez of The Writing Whisperer at this event, Shannon travels the country to teach this very topic to business owners.”
Pet business owners will learn how content marketing is a sure-fire way, when done correctly, to help them stand out among the noise of the Internet crowd.
“There is no better way to establish yourself as an industry expert than through the use of authentic, personal, and strategic content. My sole mission at this event is to help pet entrepreneurs find their brand voices, share their unique stories, gain more visibility, establish themselves as experts, and create authentic marketing messages, all through the use of a smart content strategy,” stated M. Shannon Hernandez of The Writing Whisperer.
The first half of the afternoon, from 2pm to 4pm, is the 2-hour interactive pet blogging workshop and then a networking break from 4pm – 4:30pm. From 4:30 – 6pm the Pet Author’s Mastermind Roundtable will take place featuring successful pet authors who are also successful pet bloggers. The perfect opportunity for attendee’s questions to be answered and get insight and information in the pet blogging world!
