Slightly Savvy Summer Camp

For Bloggers, Designed by PR Insiders on Working with Brands

Summer Camp 2017 is closed and will reopen in early 2018.

Why Summer Camp?

Because legitimacy.

Slightly Savvy Summer Camp is THE place for bloggers to learn about allll about working with brands...from the influencer + PR insiders choosing bloggers for brand collaborations.

We're the ones searching for bloggers, negotiating with them, and looking at their press kits for brands like Dove, Kitchen Aid, TRESemme, L'Oreal, and Speedo.

"I'm vetting a 50 person list right now, weeding through people who are a fit for an upcoming program. I wish I could help these women understand how to make their content feel more authentic + brand friendly." - Account + Influencer Relations at Edelman PR

"So many times I've wanted to tell bloggers exactly why they weren't chosen for a campaign and just give them some insider tricks, those little tweaks that take a blogger to the next level." - Brand Manager at $300M Global Company

"I get really excited when I receive beautiful assets + extras. It makes me want to keep working with the bloggers, pitch their ideas to the clients, and send them free goodies." - Senior Social Strategy at KitchenAid

Think about the hours you pour in to your blog and Instagram - the editing photos, shooting photos, writing content, engaging with your readers, drafting caption ideas, building an audience all the way up from ground 0.

.....all to get asked to work for free clothes, a discount code, or way less than you deserve.

When I started blogging about branding and blogging from a PR perspective, in 1 week, I got more page views than I had in my previous 3 months of blogging. I used to get 2-3 readers on my site at once...and I was now getting about 40-50 at any given minute.

With so many women wanting to learn exactly how they could work with brands, grow their blog, and do it in a legitimate way, I wanted so badly to create something unique where I could share that information with you.

I came up with Summer Camp to help you guys turn your side hustles and your side babies into full on businesses or serious sources of income. No more wondering what brands or PR agencies think - because now you'll KNOW
