Yesterday evening we had the pleasure of hosting an influencer meetup at Peixoto Coffee in Chandler, Arizona. We partnered with the ladies of the Arizona Blogger Meetup Group and welcomed over 50 of their members for an evening of coffee, creme brûlée and networking.
We were thrilled to also have a great lineup of speakers for the evening, including Julia, the owner of Peixoto Coffee, Camille of the blog Friday We’re In Love and Lyndsey, our very own Influencer Relationship Manager here at Find Your Influence.
After everyone had gotten a drink and found a seat, we started the evening’s programming with an inspirational story from Julia about her dream of opening Peixoto Coffee and her goal of upholding her families legacy. Much of the coffee served at Peixoto is made with beans from Julia’s family farm in Brazil, in keeping with her passion of the crop to cop method. They roast their own beans in house, and also offer a variety of sweets throughout the week for a perfect pairing. Peixoto Coffee is a one-of-a-kind shop with baristas that always makes you feel like you’re at home, and is definitely a place to check out if you’re in the downtown Chandler area.
Lyndsey welcomed the group next and shared all about Find Your Influence. She hit so many great points, including how we love getting to meet our influencers face-to-face, how we work with brands and how we pair influencers with for campaigns. The whole team at FYI is very passionate about what we do and it was great to see Lyndsey share her passion for Influencer Marketing with the group.
Camille took the mic next and shared some tips and tricks for monetizing your blog. Camille herself has been very successful in this with her own blog, Friday We’re In Love, and had a lot of great expert advice to offer the group.
Lyndsey and Camille wrapped up the evening with an informal Q&A session that led to a wonderful discussion on the ins and outs of monetization and working with Find Your Influence.
We partnered with some amazing people for this event that deserve a big thank you for making this night happen, including Julia and the whole team at Peixoto Coffee for keeping the group well caffeinated fed, and also Camille and Amy of the Arizona Blogger Meetup Group for coming and bringing a great group of their members to spend the evening with us.
To wrap things up, thank you so much to everyone who attended! We loved getting to connect with you all and hope that you’ll sign up and be a part of our network.
