Happy July, Sisters! We know it’s summer vaca time, and those beach days are calling — but don’t forget: work hard, play hard! We’re here to help you slay the day, whenever you find time to take a break from sunbathing. Everything you need to succeed is within reach, and your #SCSisters are here to support your dreams and goals. This is your guide to all things SC for the month of July, so you know what to expect and how to take advantage of everything we have to offer. Let’s get right to it (and bonus points: print this page and put it in your blogging binder with all your SC worksheets and courses!).
A new stock photo will be added to our stock photo library at the start of the new month!
Check the brand directory for new brands looking to work with influencers on all levels. We’re adding new partners every week and there’s something for everyone.
Look for a challenge in our Facebook Group to help you improve your storytelling, create genuine connections with your followers, and grow your following organically.
Daily moderator chats are still coming your way in our FB Group. Plus, anytime you need to ask a question, someone is waiting with an answer!
🌟 Jenny has been encouraging #SCSisters to talk about their dream brand collabs and what makes them follow someone on Instagram (so we can put these tips into action for our own content!), and wants to remind you that you’re a badass!
📚 Mallory has been giving us all the inspo feels by asking everyone to share their fave inspiring quotes, and is also curious to know: What books or other resources (aside from SC) have you found helpful for your blog?
✨ Maia started a fun post chain asking everyone to share how they’ve grown as a blogger since their very first post! She’s also asking everyone to drop a summer-themed blog post link so we can all check it out!
📸 Jamie is helping #SCSisters meet up with a meet-up thread in the Facebook Group! She’s also encouraging everyone to share a brand they’d love to work with and if someone has a contact with that brand, to share it with the group.
