The Spark Society: A Community for Digital Influencers

The Power of Community

the spark show Dec 13, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’m talking about the power of community. 

I’ll be covering: 

  • Why it’s important to build a community vs build an audience (what’s the difference)
  • What makes it a community and how to foster connection 
  • The top 3 ways to build a community 

Build a community, not an audience

When you build a community, you build connection. You’re not just talking at people, you’re talking to them and they’re talking to each other. 

They identify with you on an emotional level and they relate to you as a person. Not just someone they see on your phone, but as a real human being. 

The difference between a community and audience is that an audience watches, they are spectators. They are not involved. A community cares about each other, it’s a safe space for people to share and be vulnerable. 

So how do you make it a community and foster connection? 

You’re the...

The Best Influencer Gifts

the spark show Nov 28, 2019

Hey there, welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’m going to be talking about the best influencer gifts for yourself or that you can get someone to give you!

At the time that I’m recording this, tomorrow is Thanksgiving and the day after is Black Friday. So everyone is holiday shopping and instead of getting a bunch of stuff that you don’t need, might as well get stuff that’s useful for your business!

I’m a huge fan of functional gifts. My husband Luke and I don’t really surprise each other with stuff, we usually do a list so we’re never disappointed.

I also usually buy myself the things I need since they’re a business expense, so I like getting things that I’m going to use. 

I did wanna tell you a story about the Apple Watch my husband gave me as a gift. He got one for himself and then loved it so much, he decided to get me one.

The thing is, I’ve never liked wearing watches. When I got my first watch when I...

The Magic of Live Events

the spark show Nov 25, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be covering:

  • Why it’s so important to go to live events
  • What you should consider when choosing which live events to go to 
  • The #1 thing that most successful people do 

We just had our third annual The Spark Summit event here in Los Angeles. We had a VIP Day with an intimate group where we did masterminding for the morning, had lunch then did a photoshoot at Santa Monica Pier/Beach to get content. We also had dinner. Then the next day, we had a day of speakers and more masterminding - everyone had massive breakthroughs, we even had some tears. Then for the last day, we did a photoshoot at 29 Rooms and then ended it on Abbot Kinney in Venice with more photos and we had some sponsors provide us with food and drinks! 

Why it’s so important to go to live events

1) To be around like-minded people

Easy Holiday Content Ideas

the spark show Nov 21, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, we’ll be covering:

- My top tips on creating holiday content 

- How to get brands to work with you during the holidays

- How to amplify the reach of your holiday content

 Who’s already creating holiday content? Thanksgiving is coming up in a week and Christmas is just five weeks away. 

My first tip is to plan and shoot ahead of time. A lot of companies start creating their holiday content in September. That’s when the press and media start sourcing for their holiday articles and stories. 

The second tip is to repurpose content. I’ve used photos from previous years and so when you’re planning shoots, know that you can repurpose your content and use them over and over again. 

My third tip is to go to places that have holiday themed decorations and lights like malls, buildings with a Christmas tree, museums and plays so you don’t have to create a whole holiday set.
