Connecting Brands & Bloggers at Reviewer’s Retreat #RevRet12

Most of you guys know by now that I’m going to be attending Reviewer’s Retreat in just a couple more weeks. Well, not just attending – I’ll also be speaking at the event! I’m going to be presenting with a couple of other amazing social media gals, teaching our best tips on growing your audience using social media, email newsletters, giveaway events, and more. I’m pretty excited to meet some new people, share some helpful info, and get to see some of my favorite blogging friends again too!

Reviewer's Retreat

“Position yourself as a center of influence – the one who knows the movers and shakers. People will respond to that, and you’ll soon become what you project.” – Bob Burg

If you’re going to be at Reviewer’s Retreat too, I’d LOVE to love to connect with you there. I’ll be speaking on Monday, June 4th, at 10:30, presenting the Undergraduate session titled Growing Your Audience. {If you haven’t signed up for that session yet, you can visit the site to build your schedule.} And, I’m also going to be helping out during the Sponsor Speedway portion of the event, meeting with bloggers at the Mompact table. The first speedway is during my presentation, but I’ll be at the table during the second one, later in the afternoon.

What is the Sponsor Speedway?

This is a bit of time set aside for bloggers and brands to connect with each other. Bloggers will get to take a seat, about 5-6 at a time, with each brand. You’ll get a little less than 10 minutes to quickly introduce yourself to the brand, exchange business cards, and hopefully make a totally charming first impression. Then your group will move on to the next table, until everyone has had a chance to connect. There will be some really great brands – from big names like Kia and Pampers, to fun brands like Mompact and Uncommon Goods. At Mompact, I’ll be looking for some really passionate and talented new reviewer’s to join our team this year – so don’t forget to stop by and get me one of your card. {Need a card with a totally memorable design to catch all of these great brand’s attention? Check out my very favorite blogging business card company to find some awesome inspiration.} I’ll also have some actual products on hand, if you’re interested in taking something home with you to review on your site later.

Mompact Logo

“Networking is simply the cultivating of mutually beneficial, give and take, win-win relationships. It works best, however, when emphasizing the ‘give’ part.” – Bob Burg

About Mompact… “It’s time for moms to support other moms in business the way we do in motherhood. The compassion we feel when we meet a mom in need of encouraging words at the check out line, or struggling to quiet a fussy toddler at a restaurant, is the same kind of compassion and connection moms have in business. We get what the other mom is going through: how she has to juggle work and family, sacrifice financially, and learn along the way. We’re here to provide a platform for that support.”

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” – Jane Howard

I’m really excited to be representing Mompact, and some of our amazing partner businesses, at this event. And I know that the mom inventors who work with Mompact are definitely very excited to get their products introduced to some of the most influential review bloggers in the blogosphere – meaning YOU. If you’d like to learn a little more about the brands I’ll be bringing to share at Reviewer’s Retreat, read on…

  • Twooth Timer: This is a great gadget that has completely changed bedtimes around my house! Kids love it, and it encourages them to brush their teeth much longer, with no nagging. Learn more about the Twooth Timer, and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Parking Pal Magnet: This is such a genius product for moms of bigger kids – it keeps them safe when getting in and out of the car, especially in busy parking lots. So simple, but really works. Everyone that sees always stops to comment on it. See the selection of Parking Pal Magnets online, then connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Tidy Tots: This is a new way of looking at potty training – a stage I’m JUST getting started with. These are a potty chair liner that makes clean up quick and easy – just grab the bag and toss the mess. I can definitely see the appeal to this great solution! You can learn more about Tidy Tots online, read their blog for some great tips, and connect with them on Facebook too.
  • ViveVita: The inventor behind these smart solutions for everyday living is the mother to nine – yes NINE – children. So she knows about challenges! Her products are all meant to make your life a little easier, and all are very clever ideas. See the selection of ViveVita products, and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Nini Baby: Tired of having to pick up the toy/sippy cups/crayon/pacifier/you name it! – that your child just threw onto the floor? Then you will totally appreciate the great problem solvers at Nini Baby! Learn more about their great selection, and connect on Facebook and Twitter.

  • Buti-Bag: Ohmyheck – while we’re talking about cute fashions, you have GOT to check out the adorable designs from Buti-Bag! She carries a fun line of Belle Bottoms that totally glam up a pair of little girl jeans, and totally gorgeous bags and accessories. See her great goodies at Buti-Bag.com, and connect on Twitter and Facebook today too!
  • CuddleCloth: I had wished for something like this when Abby was a baby – and it would still be so helpful now – the CuddleCloth is a towel that you wear, making it simple to grab a slippery bath-time baby and wrap her up quickly – without getting yourself wet too! Check out the CuddleCloth in action, and visit them on Facebook and Twitter too.
  • Babee Covee: This is so smart – it’s a 6-in-1 Blanket and Cover for babies and kids – it’s patented design ensures that it won’t fall off, whether used for a cover in the stroller, over a car seat, or on playdates – this blanket is super versatile, durable, and super cute. Watch the Babee Covee video to see why it’s so cool, then check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Boogie Wipes: I’m a Boogie Wipes Ambassador, and let me tell ya – I’ve given out hundreds of samples of these great kids wipes, and there is not ONE person who doesn’t totally love them! They’re for more than just colds and allergies – they work as an all purpose kiddo wipe too! Learn more about why Boogie Wipes are a must-have addition to any moms purse or diaper bag, then visit them on Facebook and Twitter too.

If you’re interested in learning more about these awesome brands, and working with them in the future – I’d love for you to take a minute to stop by their social media pages today, and let them know that you’re excited to learn more about them at Reviewer’s Retreat! They’ll love getting to “Meet” you – and I look forward to meeting you soon too.
