Content Camp

Join Us Online October 20-22, 2020

You're Invited To A Different Type Of Conference

Content Camp is a three-day, workshop-style, content creation and content marketing event, which means you'll be actively working on your business and content to map it out, get it done, and build momentum.

Content Camp is breaking the typical conference mold

Instead of listening to a lineup of speakers, taking copious notes, and leaving with way too many things to do and feelings of overwhelm, at Content Camp, you will be gaining clarity, working on your businesses, and creating momentum.

Content Camp is the first working conference of its kind designed exclusively for freelancers, micro agencies, bloggers, and small businesses who are ready to take their business to the next level. The three-day event is comprised of hands-on workshops where you will craft compelling brand stories and marketing messages, write powerful calls to action, create attention-getting images, research keywords, repurpose existing content, and architect your blog strategy so you can attract more business and create more cash.

Every detail — from the carefully designed curriculum to the training materials and popular 200+ page workbook — is crafted to provide attendees a remarkable virtual experience.

Each online Content Camp session will have you taking action. Throughout the event, you will experience expert training followed by live Q&A and time to do the work — to map it out, get it done, and create momentum. You’ll also be:

  • Challenged to think about your business and customers in a whole new way
  • Exposed to new frameworks for content creation and delivery
  • Guided through hands-on exercises that will have a critical impact on your content
  • Equipped with resources to brainstorm and outline new content quickly
  • Exposed to new tools, strategies, and tactics
  • Inspired to take bold action and make progress before the event is even over

As a result, you will end Content Camp having already taken significant meaningful action that will make an immediate difference — and with access to the recordings through December 31, 2020, you can revisit any session to get a refresher!

Total Content Clarity In Three Days

At Content Camp, you'll spend three days in the comfort of your own home, immersed in all things content marketing — from clarifying the basics and defining your messaging to planning and prepping a year of content and crafting an amplification plan.

Plan A Year's Worth Of Strategic, Profit-Driven Content And Maximize Your ROI

A Content Camp ticket is regularly $147, but for a limited time, you can SAVE $50 and secure your spot for only $97 — a total steal for three full days of hands-on workshops and access to the session recordings through the end of the year!

What's The Story Behind Content Camp?

Content Camp is created and produced by Jennifer Bourn — 22-year designer, 15-year agency owner, 11-year blogger, and serious lover of content strategy.

The typical conference model is failing small businesses

Hi! I’m Jennifer Bourn — a designer turned small business content strategist who wanted to be 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. It’s a horrible experience!

That's why I'm all about hands-on workshops

I love workshops because they create space for business owners to work ON their business rather than IN it. At workshops, attendees get things done and make progress at the event, and that momentum continues as they take action on their own. Over the past several years, I’ve created training curriculum and delivered online courses and hands-on workshops for freelancers, small businesses, micro-agencies, and creative professionals on topics like branding, content strategy, business systems, sales, and lead generation. These workshops always receive rave reviews and that seriously got me thinking…

Every minute spent on content needs to make an impact

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 — you have too many things on your plate and never enough time. I also know you have a dream and you’re not going to give up. If you invest time, money, and energy into attending an event and being “out of the office,” it needs to be worth it. It needs to produce real results that will move your business forward because every minute spent working on your business, is a minute not spent serving clients or being 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 Content Camp ticket sales are final and non-refundable. If you buy a ticket to the event and are unable to attend, your workshop ticket is transferable to another individual through October 12, 2020. After October 12, 2020, tickets are locked down and are no longer transferable.

I have a scheduling conflict! Will the sessions be recorded so I can watch them later?

Yes, all workshop training/instruction sessions will be recorded and the replays will be available through the end of 2020 so you can revisit any sessions you missed or want to review again.

What do I need to participate in Content Camp?

Each workshop will guide you through exercises and have you actively working on your brand, your business, and your content. You can stream/access the workshops from any device like your smartphone or a tablet, but there are some that will be easier if you are at a computer with access to files like your logo. You’ll also want to have the Content Camp workbook by your side, along with pencils/pens and highlighters, your favorite beverage and snacks, and maybe even some sticky notes!

I’ve seen the workbooks from Content Camp 2019… Will we get hardcopy workbooks this year?

With attendees purchasing extra workshop tickets just to get extra workbooks copies last year, we know the Content Camp workbooks are loved! That’s why the workbooks are a core part of Content Camp. Unfortunately, with shipping times varying drastically and many people experiencing delays, that means the Content Camp workbooks will be digital this year. PDFs of the workbook will be provided to all attendees — which also means you can reprint your favorite worksheets again and again!

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, you want people to visit your site, read your posts, and subscribe to your blog or email list. Maybe you even dream of earning side-income, free product, or special event invites from brand partners and sponsors… You may not view your blog as a business yet, but shifting your thinking can make a big difference in your blog’s potential.

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. Plus, you’ll leave the event with a YEAR of blog content mapped out!

How will the workshops work virtually when all attendees aren’t in the same room?

All workshop sessions are split into two sections: a workshop training and instruction and a hands-on group working session and live Q&A. You can choose to watch the training and instruction session and then work on your own, or you can hop into a shared Zoom Room to work alongside other attendees and ask questions.

The first 20-30 minutes of each session will be training delivered by one of the Content Camp workshop facilitators. The second 30-40 minutes of the session will take place in an open Zoom Room where attendees can check-in, complete the worksheet and session homework, and ask questions to get unstuck and remove barriers to progress.

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 content on behalf of your clients as copywriters do, you are more than welcome to attend to Content Camp and complete the exercises on behalf of a client. The event will help you gain clarity on your clients’ brand and message, think more strategically about their content and blog, prepare for the year ahead, and discover how to improve the results and benefits of the services you deliver.

If you plan to use the Content Camp workbook and materials for multiple clients, however, each client will need to purchase a workshop ticket or you’ll need a special ticket that allows for multiple workbook uses.
