This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a virtual blogger conference, HELLO LIVE! I knew a little bit about HELLO LIVE but I was not prepared for the amount of quality content I was about to receive! The organizers were sure to tick every box of the virtual conference planning checklist and created such a wonderful conference! HELLO LIVE mainly focused on how to use live streaming. (There were other topics, if you are a pro a live streaming, HELLO LIVE does have value for you!) This was wonderful for me because I have been wanting to go live for a while but thought I would wait until the ABC Kids Expo in October. I’ve been preparing for a while for that expo and even considered setting up a booth when I go so that I feel like I have a place in the convention, even when mingling with other bloggers. I’ve only recently discovered the world of expos and I can honestly say that I love it now. Who knows what expos I’ll be setting up at next because this one was totally inspiring! I hope they’re all like this! After attending HELLO LIVE I am excited (and less nervous than before) to finally go live!
HELLO LIVE is not only for bloggers. HELLO LIVE is perfect for small business owners, etsy or FBA shops, direct sales consultants and any category of blogger. It does not matter what subject your blog is about, HELLO LIVE will definitely help you learn how to engage more with your audience, grow your audience, create your community and better monetize your website. You will also be able to learn how Nitreo gets you more Instagram followers as well as find out about similar tools that you can use for other platforms like Pinterest and Twitter. You learn about pretty much any social media influenced website! HELLO LIVE is perfect for direct sales consultants! Social networking is the best way to reach more people from the comfort of your own home, and theirs as well! This is what I loved most about HELLO LIVE. I did not have to go anywhere to attend HELLO LIVE!
HELLO LIVE was a live video that I watched from the comfort of my house. I literally woke up, hopped on the internet and started watching HELLO LIVE. I didn’t even get out of bed before I started watching! Not only could I watch HELLO LIVE from my bed, I could also ask questions and receive answers immediately. When my babies needed me I was able to pause HELLO LIVE, get off my device and help my babies. At nap time, when I bounce Baby Sister to sleep, I was able to watch the HELLO LIVE video I missed earlier. Baby Sister is 16 months old and cutting four incredibly large teeth. I was able to watch HELLO LIVE while I laid in bed with her and nursed her through her nap. How awesome is that?!? I LOVE blogging and I LOVE my kids. I LOVE being able to combine these two things and HELLO LIVE allowed me to do just that!
HELLO LIVE had an amazing schedule of speakers. It was really wonderful to be able to see these amazing people live. I am relatively new to the blogging world and these speakers were daunting to me. It was so refreshing to be able to see them as real people and not just those who have made it and have everything figured out. I think the biggest thing I learned from HELLO LIVE is that even these amazing people who I look up to and want to follow in their footsteps, they got nervous going on live streaming. This is what has been holding me back from live streaming the most, the nerves. Knowing these creative, successful people were nervous going live, that has given me the push I needed to finally go live!
Okay so I learned A LOT from HELLO LIVE, more than learning people are still people with feelings and nerves. I learned so many things it wouldn’t be fair for me to try to teach you. Instead, HELLO LIVE has created a way for YOU to be able to attend! HELLO LIVE now has a Replay ticket! This means you can watch and learn everything from the experts! All of the videos will be available for you to watch over and over and over again. I know I have already watched them all twice and plan on watching them again! They really are full of that much information. I was not bored for one minute during HELLO LIVE! In between speakers there was an amazing singer, Mary Desmond. My girls LOVED the singing and wanted to watch it over and over and over again. I happily obliged!

I wish I could say I had a favorite speaker or topic. Learning about keyword research from those in marketing was a wonderful experience, figuring out tips and tricks for my future videos was a blast… Honestly each and every speaker and topic was jam packed with amazing information and personality. It was wonderful to learn from so many different people, styles and techniques. I feel like I could pick one video per day to focus on because there is that much content in each of the speakers presentation. I came into HELLO LIVE not quite sure if it would be worth my time or money but by the second speaker I was hanging on every. single. word. I was a little sad when HELLO LIVE was over! But lucky for me (and you!) I can watch all these amazing people again and again! Did I mention you can still ask questions and the speakers will PERSONALLY answer your questions? How amazingly awesome is that!?! You have the opportunity to have successful influencers listen and respond to you!
