Top 4 Influencer Communities You Should Join

One of the most valuable resources I’ve come to recognize as a blogger are Influencer Communities. These are digital spaces where bloggers & brands can join & connect over similar passions and interests, garner relationships, collaborate with one another, and gain access to events & teachable knowledge shared by some of the biggest names in the industry.

From sharing links to your blog posts to receiving invitations for exclusive brand opportunities to even traveling for annual conferences to attend, these communities are a safe haven and Godsend for influencers to prosper and grow not only their brands but also their network of like-minded individuals.

What I Benefit From

Featured Posts: Each month, I get the opportunity to submit my favorite post links that The Blog Societies may feature on its own social media/platform. This allows for my site to gain more traffic due to the thousands of followers that this community has following its social platforms & subscribed to its newsletter. In fact, this blog tip post has been featured twice on The Blog Societies already & boosted my traffic and following substantially.

TBS Conference: The Blog Societies holds an annual conference open to all members of the TBS community. This conference allows for bloggers & brands to come together for a weekend of panel discussions, workshops, and brand experiences all focused towards growing your platform and strategizing the best tips & tricks of the trade from industry experts.

INFLUENCEHER COLLECTIVE

InfluenceHer Collective is a curated network of blogs and vlogs written by young women on fashion, beauty, cooking, fitness, design, lifestyle, and more. The Collective provides a community for influencers to share ideas and inspiration with one another and receive editorial and sponsorship opportunities from Her Campus and our partners, and provides brands with the chance to reach 2,400+ digital, millennial influencers and their audiences through sponsored blog content, social media campaigns, and more!

….

What I Benefit From

Brand Campaigns: As a ‘Premier’ InfluenceHer Collective Member (meaning I have a following of x-amount to qualify) allows me to work with brands I’ve loved and admired for years on a sponsored basis. These campaigns are fantastic because they offer a diverse list of brands to work with – from fashion and beauty brands to lifestyle and travel opportunities. Plus, these campaigns are sponsored and once you apply & are accepted for it (based on if you would be a good fit for the brand), you get a sense of security knowing your content will be compensated.

Active Facebook Group: The InfluenceHer Collective Facebook Group is a great space to share your daily blog posts with other IHC members, as well as connect with other bloggers from tech support to general questions that need a like-minded reader’s opinion. For example, I was in need of finding a NYC-based videographer that would be willing to work with me during Fashion Week so I posted to the group asking if anyone had any contacts I could reach out to. Having a group that’s super responsive and willing to help is such a reassurance!

HerConference: I’ve been honored to be a guest speaker on a panel and host my own workshop at the 2015 and 2016 HerConferences. Held in NYC, these conferences are open to all InfluenceHer Collective members that are looking to grow & connect as a brand/business by learning from industry elites and bloggers that have found great success after joining the IHC community.
