Get To Know: Organizing Sponsor MtoM Consulting

It is amazing what happens when you realize that other people believe in what you are doing. This knowledge alone can give new life to a project or goal. And this is exactly what happened when we sat down with Christine Wilson and Tracey Harrington McCoy of MtoM Consulting. From the moment we met with this duo, we realized that this was a perfect teaming. Christine and Tracey understood exactly why it makes sense to pair bloggers and business owners in a conference of this magnitude. They were “all in” from day one and have been extremely supportive every step of the way. We are grateful that they signed on to be organizing sponsors and speakers at #FemCon13.

Christine Wilson, Founder of MtoM Consulting, said,  ”We were thrilled to get involved with the Femworking Conference because we had discussed a need for something similar in the DC area and this was a perfect opportunity to bring small businesses and bloggers together to learn and network. We hope this will be an annual event in DC so that we can grow the relationships between small businesses and bloggers.”

Christine established MtoM Consulting in December 2011 when she realized that so many businesses in the DC area needed help connecting with their target audience – Moms.

“I decided to combine my two passions, marketing and motherhood, and created MtoM, a full service marketing and PR consultancy specializing in social media, digital media, and influencer marketing,” Christine said. ”Through our influencer marketing program we began to work with more and more bloggers in the DC area and around the country. We were thrilled to find so many amazing brand ambassadors that wanted to share great product and service information with their readers.”

During the Femworking Blogger and Small Business Conference, attendees will get the chance to hear Christine and Tracey speak about the importance of brands and bloggers working together. They will also share their advice for monetizing your site.

We have a feeling this is going to be a popular seminar and can’t wait to introduce Christine and Tracey to everyone.
