create • inspire • support • connect
Go from online to offline and connect with other like-minded locals while you grow your blog or biz!
The Twin Cities Collective was created to help Twin Cities bloggers and creatives connect with other like-minded individuals in our area. We come together to teach, learn, connect and support - all with the purpose of helping you grow your business and brand!
We have an active Facebook group along with monthly meet-ups and educational events that we'd love for you to be a part of (like our signature Instagram Growth Workshop) - check our current events here!
Hi everyone! My name is Jenna Redfield and I run the Twin Cities Collective. I grew up here in the cities then went to college to become a video editor & get my Communications degree.
I started my first business doing wedding videography then transitioned into freelance video editing. Along with that, I launched a styled stock photography shop originally called "JennaRedfieldCreative" where I styled product photos that people could purchase to use in their marketing and social media. Over time, I've transitioned that to this brand & now I am a social media (specifically instagram) strategist here at TCC, working with small businesses to create content for their social media & connect them to the right people!
Along with that I was a local Minnesota blogger. I started attending blogger events, including one called Twin Cities Blogger Collective. When I heard that the leader was moving, I saw an opportunity to be a part of something bigger - so I asked her if I could be the new leader!
Since then we’ve completely rebranded, including a leap from just bloggers to other amazing locals, including creatives, entrepreneurs, small businesses and makers!
During the rebrand we changed our name to Twin Cities Collective, got a new website, grew the Instagram & Facebook group, launched our podcast & workshops, as well as many other events to spread our name and our purpose to the Twin Cities community.
My mission is twofold: to educate & connect. Education through our podcast & workshops, and connection through our Instagram, Facebook, events & meetups.
How I define myself
Content Creator: What I love to do-create photos, designs, videos & content to help brands and small businesses grow their online following.
Connector: What I'm naturally good at-Helping people find others that they need. Connecting people looking for each other, both in business and life.
Influencer: What I've become-Sharing things I love & products & brands I think need more eyes in front of my audience, who is looking to me to be a middle man between whether or not something is legit
Strategist: What I find exciting-Growing your brand through networking, social media, content & more, I know how to do this (I've done it myself)
Educator: Where I get the most satisfaction-I love nothing more than teaching something I know to someone who wants to learn
GET PLUGGED IN:
We started with a bang and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! Here’s a little bit of our story:
Twin Cities Blogger Collective was formed as a local networking group for bloggers
Jenna took over as director + owner
We partnered with local businesses and TCC members Allie Marie Design (branding) and Branding Babes Co (website) to relaunch as the Twin Cities Collective! It was so amazing to relaunch as a deeper, wider network!
We launched the Twin Cities Collective podcast, now named one of the best 50 local podcasts on Apple Podcasts!
We created our first physical product - our very own TCC mug designed by local business and TCC member Sara Hynes Designs
Our first series of workshops launched at our TCC headquarters inside of Studio Cowork. You guys loved the Instagram Growth Workshop so much that we made it our signature program!
WE HIT 10K FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM!! We are so incredibly humbled to be making such an impact in the Twin Cities!
We partnered with local business and TCC member My Billie Design Studio to launch the newest version of our website. Our aim is to better showcase all of our new offerings and help you get plugged in easier + faster to the things that matter most to you.
