INVISALIGN: how i got on the Mom’s Advisory Board

“How did you become part of Mom’s Advisory Board?”

I probably get asked a version of that question at every conference, meetup, blogging social event.

People want to know what I did to get chosen to represent a company like Invisalign.

Truth?

I DON’T HAVE A FREAKING CLUE!

I didn’t apply for it. I didn’t know it was an option. As the mom of an aligner-wearer, I’m thankful I WAS chosen.

But after working with Invisalign, blogging for them and telling about our journey from ferocious overbite to beautiful smile, I can tell you what I did as a MAB member.

1. REMAINED MYSELF – It hasn’t always been pleasant, my son did some really bone-headed stuff, I opted not to participate in things I didn’t agree with.  Even though I love working with Invisalign, they like working with me for my ability to stay true to my voice and honest about our opinions.

2. USED MY SENSE OF HUMOR – this wasn’t always easy because my humor can be somewhat risque at times. I made sure that when I COULD insert it, it was fitting and appropriate to the message.

3. MEET RESPONSIBILITIES  – I didn’t do this very good, life backed up on me! By telling them what was going on and talking about it I was able to make things work out for both me AND them.

4. BE DIFFERENT – lots of people are going to have cute kids that need aligners. Be prepare to tell your story in ways that are unique, stand out.

I can’t promise that doing these things are gong to get you on the MAB, but I can definitely tell you that if you DON’T do them, you don’t stand a chance.

GOOD LUCK!

Disclosure:

While I am paid for my time, my opinion is my own and is never for sale.

You Got that?? MY OPINION IS MY OWN.**

I’m a member of the Mom’s Advisory Board, and my son received complimentary Invisalign treatment.

    I still live in hope they’ll take another look at me. My numbers are double what they were last year, and my Invisalign sponsored post STILL gets lots of clicks!
