Influence Conference FAQ'S

As entrepreneurs, writers, business women, wives, mothers, and students, we understand the sacrifice of investing your hard-earned income into something that may seem intangible. It’s hard to invest towards a dream that still seems fuzzy or a goal that is still somewhat unclear. You may know that God wants you to use your online voice and business for Him, but aren’t quite sure what that looks like in the big scheme of life. This is why the Influence Conference was created: to guide you in finding your purpose and the plan that God has for your business, blog, and everyday life. Our vision is that every women comes with a desire to learn how to use their gifts to spread the Gospel, and leaves feeling energized, equipped, and connected as a tribe of Believers willing to help each other pursue that calling on their lives. This is why we want you there. In the upcoming months we will have more specifics coming- what to pack, what to do in the city, what to expect from the conference and how to get the most out of Influence as a conference attendee. But for now, here are some answers for some of your burning questions.

Who is The Influence Conference For?

If you’re a blogger or social media pro who wants to grow in her ability to leverage the internet to make much of Jesus–and help support your family’s ability to act and minister – Influence will be that conference. If you’re a gal who cares little about the internet, we believe Influence is for you too and you’ll be blessed beyond measure by coming. If you’ve always wanted a community of women, but never felt you fit in at Christian conferences before, come knowing you’ll be embraced and all your charm and quirk will be loved! If you’re looking for a weekend to experience community among like-minded women, if you’re looking for a fun and engaging weekend, if you want to meet some of the amazing women online who you talk to or read about or think you could learn from, The Influence Conference is the place.

How do I purchase a ticket? How much do tickets cost?

Tickets are on sale for $225. You can purchase tickets HERE through our Eventbrite page. Tickets include the party Thursday night, breakfast and lunch on Friday and Saturday and all conference sessions (you will get recordings of sessions you could not attend or want to hear again)!

I have special dietary needs, how do I let you know?

We are working with the hotel to bring you a delicious menu and are happy to say we will also be offering a vegetarian dish and a gluten/dairy free option. If you have special dietary needs you are able to suggest one of these two options when you purchase your ticket!

How do I connect before the conference?

There are a TON of ways to connect to other women before the conference. One of the easiest ways is to become a member of the influence network ! There is an entire Conference category where you can find a roommate, make travel plans, and plan for the weekend! You can also connect to women using the hashtag #influencenet on Twitter and Instagram. Women are also connecting with each other and finding roommates and making plans through our Facebook Page.

What are the two session tracks?

LIFE: Each of our lives are uniquely shaped by God Himself. By telling our stories of grace, forgiveness, trials, loss, and triumph- we are telling of the Good News. Each speaker has a story to tell, full to the brim with the Goodness of God.
STRATEGY: If you are wanting to take your storytelling to a new place this track will help. Your influence in social media can bless you and your ministries relationally and even financially. These sessions will give you practical tips to leverage your business or blog for God’s glory and your good.

How does the two session track thing work?

We really believe the idea that God has given each of us multiple spheres of influence and we hope to touch on these areas through offering both Life and Strategy Sessions. We will have one main session in each track that every conference attendee gets to hear as an entire conference. The rest of the sessions will have both tracks offered simultaneously. There is no need to stick to one track or sign up for a certain session in advance... you are free to attend any session you wish!

Who is speaking at the conference? Who else is involved?

We are so unbelievably excited about the speakers for our 2013 conference. You can find a whole speaker list HERE and get to know them a little better. We also have an incredible group of accessible experts and community leaders who are there to love on you and guide you through the weekend.
