PPAI Women's Leadership Conference

Two of DistributorCentral's ladies attended this year's PPAI Women's Leadership Conference last week. Amelia Madl, Senior Account Manager and Tiffany Tarr, CAS, Vice President of Sales participated in the conference held in New Orleans.

More than 130 women from across the U.S. and Canada, including 50 first-time attendees, traveled to New Orleans for two and a half days of networking and professional development where they learned about leadership, empowerment, strategic planning, succession planning, business challenges, accountability, personal branding, mentoring, budget development and technology.

Tiffany Tarr recounts her experience for us. “As a first time attendee my experience was very positive.  All of the woman attending the conference were engaging, welcoming and really showed an interest in strengthen the relationship between female leaders in the industry.”

Tiffany said her motivation for attending was the networking that these events create. “Throughout my career, I have found tremendous value in these types of events.  These conferences create an opportunity to network on a one-on-one basis that you don’t get in large industry events.  It’s creates an environment that really allows you to build long-lasting relationships.”

Taking the "Blah" out of Blogging

Digital client engagement has evolved to the point where there are so many tools; it’s not only hard to know where to start, but also to know where to focus the resources necessary to achieve results. This generally leads to frustration or, even worse, inaction. Today’s business environment is far too competitive to ignore that digital marketing – specifically, content marketing/blogging – can not only drive traffic to your website, but also position you as an expert and win you clients.

Why content marketing? The numbers are staggering:

  • 54% of marketers generated a client from their blog in 2014
  • 86% of small business marketers view their blog as their most impactful marketing tactic
  • 72% of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) professionals rate blogging as their top inbound marketing activity
