You're Invited To An Entirely New Type Of Conference

Content Camp is a live workshop-style content marketing and blogging conference, which means you'll be actively working on your business and getting things done.

Every detail of the event — from the beautiful venue and carefully crafted curriculum to the networking and training materials — is crafted to provide you a remarkable experience.

Throughout the event, you will experience training presentations, facilitated workshops, and hands-on exercises designed to create a clear content strategy, craft compelling brand stories, and architect a blog strategy so you can attract more business and create more and cash with your content.

And you’ll be:

  • Challenged to think about your business and customers in a whole new way
  • Provided new frameworks for storytelling, content creation, and delivery
  • Guided through hands-on exercises that will have a critical impact on your content
  • Equipped with tools to brainstorm and outline new content quickly
  • Exposed to new content marketing strategies and tactics
  • Inspired to take bold steps forward

What's The Story Behind Content Camp?

Content Camp is created and produced by Jennifer Bourn — 20-year designer, 13-year agency owner, 10-year blogger, and serious lover of content strategy.

The typical conference model is failing small businesses

Hi! I’m Jennifer Bourn — a designer turned content strategist who always dreamed of being a teacher and I don’t know about you, but I’m over the typical conference experience designed to wear you down so you can be more susceptible to a sales pitch at the end. I’m also tired of sitting in a dark ballroom, listening to a whole lineup of speakers and ferociously taking notes only to leave overwhelmed and end up not taking action because you don’t know where to start, then feel bad because you left motivated to do great things but never did. What a horrible experience!

This is why I'm all about hands-on workshops

I love workshops because attendees get things done and make progress at the event, and that momentum stays with them as they continue to take action at home or in the office. Over the past several years, I’ve been creating training curriculum and delivering workshops on branding, content strategy, business systems and process, and lead generation for freelancers, entrepreneurs, small businesses, micro-agencies, and creative professionals. These workshops have received rave reviews — even more than my keynotes and breakouts — and that seriously got me thinking…

Every minute spent on content needs to make an impact

I know that building a successful business is a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be difficult work and you don’t have to figure it out on your own. I know you’re busy. I know you have too many things on your plate and never enough time. I also know that you have a dream and you’re not going to give up — and that if you’re going to invest time, money, and energy into attending an event, you need to make it worth it. You need real results; results that are going to move your business forward, because every minute spent working on your business and content, is a minute not spent with loved ones.

You don't need a conference, you need a workshop

If you’ve struggled with content planning and creation… If blogging has been a challenge… If you’re taking action but not seeing the results you want… If you struggle to tell your brand story, communicate your value, and show prospects the impact you can have on their lives/business… you don’t need another conference full of speakers regurgitating things you’ve read online. You need a workshop. You need three days away from all of your day-to-day demands and obligations to focus on your business and your content so you can map it out, get it done, and create momentum.

Spend three days immersed in all things content

From gaining clarity, brainstorming new ideas, and content planning to creating content like brand messaging, blog posts, ebooks, content upgrades, and more, Content Camp has you covered. This three-day workshop intensive is designed to not only walk you step-by-step through every tactic, strategy, but give you time to take action and get help and direct feedback on the spot. Plus, you’ll learn how to leverage content marketing opportunities for authority positioning, rapid list-building, increased brand visibility, and better search engine rankings so more people who need what you offer can find you online.

Content Camp FAQs

Have a question about Content Camp? Maybe I can help...

What happens if I buy a ticket but later can’t go to Content Camp?

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. If you buy a ticket to the event and later can’t attend, your ticket is transferable through September 9, 2019. After September 9, 2019, tickets are locked down and are no longer transferable.

What do I need to bring to Content Camp?

Content Camp is a workshop, which means instead of listening to speaker after speaker deliver talks and taking notes, you’ll be guided through exercises and actively working on your brand, your business, and your content. While you’ll receive an event workbook, you’ll also want a laptop or tablet with you so you can maximize your experience, participate fully, and get the most done at the event.

What if I don’t have a business but I have a blog? Will I benefit from Content Camp?

If you’re investing time and energy into your blog, I’m pretty sure that you want people to visit your site, read your posts, and subscribe to your blog or email list. Maybe you even dream of earning some side-income, free product, or special event invites from brand partners and sponsors… You may not view your blog as a business but shifting your thinking a tiny bit can make a big difference.

Content Camp will help you create a strategy for your blog that clarifies your brand and message, positions you as a desirable market partner, increases traffic to your blog, and simplifies social media without sacrificing results.

Can I attend Content Camp on behalf of my client?

YES! If you’re in advertising, marketing, public relations, or social media, you’re a consultant, or you create on behalf of your clients like copywriters do, you are more than welcome to attend to Content Camp on behalf of your clients. The event will help you gain clarity on your clients’ brand and message, think more strategically about their content and blog, and discover how to improve the results and increase the benefits of your work.

What’s the attire for Content Camp?

First, September in Roseville, California and the greater Sacramento Region is hot. Temperatures range from 85-100 degrees outside, but inside you’ll be nice and cool. I recommend dressing for warm weather and bringing a light sweater if you get cool inside.

Second, this is a working event and that means you need to be comfortable. This probably isn’t going to be your chance to break out that fancy dress or suit. Instead, I’d recommend business casual attire.

What’s the lunch situation?

I have food allergies — one bite of dairy and I won’t be able to deliver the event — so I understand how important your meals are to your ability to enjoy the event and how frustrating it is to sit down for a meal you can’t eat.

The lunches will be protein, fruit, and veggie heavy and all ticket members will receive a food survey before the event so we can be sure to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities as best we can. If you have a concern, please reach out.

What airport should I fly into?

The Sacramento International Airport (SMF) is the closest airport to the venue — about 40 minutes away without traffic and 60 minutes with traffic.
