Last Thursday, we were happy to sponsor the Evolving Influence conference by Independent Fashion Bloggers. It was very long - 6am to 6pm! - but exciting, wonderful and just-plain-fun day.
Highlights from the event:
• The chance to speak!
We described who we are, what we do, and why we're so passionate to hundreds of influential bloggers in attendance as well as thousands more around the world via live stream. Plus, speaking right before the elegant Susie Bubble meant people were definitely paying extra attention. :)
Really, though, how could you not pay attention!
• The official Jeff Silverman kiosk
We were still running around the night before to get everything ready. A huge awesome sign, brand new business cards (fresh!), a digital photo frame and a tiny candle helped make our booth pretty great, if we dare say.
• The people
We were able to share our story and mission with hundreds of people, virtually all of whom were excited to join what we're building. We must have delivered our pitch a bajillion times (at least), but it never became rote. It’s so great to be passionate and believe in what you do. When it's your job, that's even better!
• The winners
Jeff Silverman held its first ever giveaway. We received around 350 entries for our Twitter-only contest, with some winners hailing from Germany, Romania and New Zealand. Fifty people at the event won free shoes or handbag, while 50 people online won half-off shoes or handbag.
