Both her insight and her hard work ethic, have kept her at the top of the social media mom world. This girl knows what she is doing and she will get it done!
(I actually have been known to refer to Jennifer James as the “Chris Brogan” of the mom blogger community.”)
So every January, when Jennifer publishes her New Year Predictions for Mom Bloggers, people pay attention. And so they should.
Jennifer consistently works with companies on some of the most innovative campaigns in social media, for example Jennifer is working with the One Moms campaign, and uses her media and marketing savvy to ensure that she is ahead of social media trends.
Jennifer is both watching and defining the social media mom landscape.
Jennifer makes 15 predictions in her Mom Blogging Predictions for 2012, including the influence and scope of mom bloggers in the upcoming presidential election and the Olympics and the rise of companies calling on mom bloggers for spokesperson jobs and commercial print ads.
Will Jennifer’s predictions come true in 2012?
Jennifer’s list is legitimate and sound. Her insights into the future are based on current and growing trends, along with her experience working with companies and top influencers. This is not a list built on dreams and self inflated ego. Her predictions in past years have been extremely accurate.
In fact, I agree with every one of Jennifer’s predictions and believe that 2012 will be an incredible year of opportunity for savvy, hard working, visible mom bloggers.
As hard as it is to hear, Jennifer predicts that the chasm between the mom bloggers who are the top mom bloggers and those with less influence will continue to widen.
Jennifer advises bloggers who want to have more opportunities, “To stand out from the crowd you will have to take actionable steps to work with brands if that’s your goal. That means networking at conferences and events, going for and landing conference speaking gigs, learning SEO (even if just a little), and writing exceptional content.”
Jennifer reminds bloggers to focus on content saying:
“2012 arguably will be an intense year because of the presidential election. Those who can create a constant stream of quality content will bring on readers who are looking to get away from the constant bombardment of political messages from television, magazines, news sites, blogs, and political advertising from commercials to billboards. If there was ever a year to ramp up your content this is it! Those who do the best will either become breakout stars or will solidify their place at the top.”
