Ladies, it’s time to announce our next big news! We’ve had such astounding response from a number of great companies interested in marketing and launching their brand or product during the conference. Our swag bags are quickly filling up with some fabulous stuff. (‘Course, a swag bag can never fill up, right?) It’s clear, the word about the conference is out. We’re on Twitter, Facebook, and of course here, and there. Many of you are already great advocates and we appreciate all that you have done to help us spread the word about Blogalicious. You’ve either placed our badge on your blog or you’re helping us plan a fabulous event. Awesome, we LOVE YOU! But there’s still much to be done before October. It’s time to round up conference attendees and make the first annual WOC blogging conference a huge success.
This is where our Ambassadors come in. We are searching for five fabulous women to join our team as Blogalicious Ambassadors. As an ambassador, you will receive a waiver on your registration fee and VIP tickets to all ticket only events at the conference. PLUS, you can get your hotel accommodations paid for! For the first six attendees that you register, you will receive one free night at the W Hotel. If you get ten attendees to register, you will receive two nights free!
Interested? Here’s what you need to know:
- Ambassadors will help publicize the conference and all official Blogalicious events, such as the Chicago Meet Up.*
- Ambassadors will be required to blog about the conference by posting three posts per month, preferably on an almost weekly basis. Posts can range from discussing Blogalicious related events you attended to conference related topics such as women of color in social media and marketers- it’s up to you.

- Ambassadors may be asked to attend other events as official representatives of Blogalicious. If travel is required, Ambassadors will receive reimbursement for approved travel related expenses.
