Meet The Social Media Ambassadors for Blogalicious 9

Social media is an important component of our business and promotional strategy. It’s one of our favorite ways to interact with and learn about our growing community. So when the time came to curate a strategic and creative social media team for Blogalicious 9, the ultimate conference for multicultural bloggers and influencers, we knew we needed the best talents in our community.

The selection process was no joke! Seriously, you guys didn’t make it easy on us simply because so many of you have great brands and even better personalities. But after a few weeks of peeling back the layers, we selected candidates we’re confident will represent our mission, #TribeUp theme, and overall Conference with love and respect.

With only two short weeks until we reunite with you in sunny Miami, Florida, now’s the perfect time to introduce you to this year’s Social Media Ambassadors for Blogalicious 9, or #SMAB9s for short. Show them some love in the Social Suite and on their social channels, guys!

#TribeUp! Blogalicious Weekend 2017 Call for Speakers is Now Open!

Application deadline: 8PM EST, June 2, 2017

Our 2017 Conference Theme is…

#TribeUp

Everywhere we turn, we’re seeing the spirit of Tribes make its presence known. Whether in the form of an Instagram pod or a Facebook community; a podcast audience or a Slack group, the desire to form a circle of like-minded individuals with a common goal and respected leadership is everywhere. And here’s the secret that us influencers have known all along: the level of engagement within a well-led tribe is through the roof. This is exciting, not only for content creators, but for media and marketers, too.

As so keenly put by Seth Godin almost a decade ago:

“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
(Seth Godin, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us)

We want to take that notion one step further and highlight your ‘how.’ What are some of the smartest, most fun, and most powerful ways you’ve gone about building your tribe?
For our 9th annual Blogalicious Weekend, we’re celebrating the importance of tribes — the trusted communities that each of you has built and are so expertly leading. In doing so, we’re paying homage to our tribe of multicultural, social media enthusiasts who continually build and foster platforms; destinations, resources, collaborations and connections that bring to light movements, information, life-hacks and social issues to the world around them. From where we stand, “Tribe” is not just another “it” word, but a way of life and sense of kinship that elevates everyone and everything around us. With an inspired tribe, the ability to make change and leave a legacy is beyond limits

It’s time to #TribeUp!

 

Interested in speaking? Great! Here’s what you need to know about the call for speakers:

Click Here to fill out the application.
Please read the instructions carefully!

Event date is October 5-8th, 2017. When applying, please be available to speak that weekend.

We read/view every single submission. You will receive an email notice notifying that your application has been received.

Application deadline is Friday, June 2nd! We’re on a very tight deadline so for this reason, absolutely NO exceptions.

Decision day is Sunday, June 25, 2017. You will receive an email notification from Blogalicious letting you know if your submission has been accepted or declined with next steps. Please do not email Blogalicious before that date.

Your submission should be focused on serving the needs of the attendees with our theme in mind. Clearly state on what significant offering and takeaways you will be providing our community.

This year we are curating a more streamlined event program. We’re looking for intermediate to advanced level facilitators to guide our community.  Our agenda this year includes masterclasses, siestas and tribe gatherings. With that said, as much as we would love to, we cannot accept every single submission.

Selected Speakers will receive complimentary Influencers registration for Blogalicious Weekend. You will be responsible for covering your own lodging and transportation.

Be yourself! Show your personality! #TribeUP!

 

9 Reasons You Want to Join the Blogalicious #SocialSquad

The “Social Squad” is our term of endearment for our conference volunteer team. They deliver the utmost in attendee experience and are the definition of service! From the things you do see, like their smiling faces at Registration, to the things you don’t see, like them getting down and dirty unloading pallets of boxes and stuffing the hundreds of swag bags, their hard work and dedication contributes to the Blogalicious Weekend experience in countless ways…

Why would you want to join the social squad? 

1. You’re in THE official Blogalicious Club! #SquadGoals
social squad app

It is THE squad to be in! This group of ladies (and gents) have the most fun behind the scenes and form a bond that extends beyond the conference.

3. Complimentary Registration to Blogalicious Weekend

In exchange for complimentary registration, volunteers work 12 hours over the course of the conference to help us pull off an successful event. Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to play and attend the workshops you desire.

4. Extra Swag!

social squad2

Every year, we have extra swag. Sometimes folks don’t claim their bag or sponsors send us more than we need. On the last day of the conference, we give everything away. Squad members usually get to pick first!

5. Jana, the BEST Squad Leader

Picture is blurry because it's hard to catch Jana in action!

Picture is blurry because it’s hard to catch Jana in action!

Jana, the Social Squad Coordinator, is THE. ABSOLUTE.BEST. If you don’t know, now you know. She runs a tight ship but she is the sweetest and protective of her troop. Squad members always make sure to remind Jana to eat at some point during the conference. She doesn’t always listen ;) Tweet her to say hi.

6. Grow Your Network / Make New Friends

The bond that forms within this group is tight. Everyone keeps in touch after the conference and engages via their very own private Facebook group.

7. Give Back and Save

When planning to attend any conference out of town, costs add up quickly! By volunteering their time, Social Squad members can offset that by donating their time. Win-win!

8. The Behind-the-Scenes Blogalicious Experience

Squad members are required to show up at least one day before the event to help us prepare. This affords our volunteers a chance to see #TeamBlogalicious in action and observe the machine that is Blogalicious Weekend.

Volunteers work closely with sponsors and speakers assisting them with whatever they need to ensure they have a positive experience. This means developing a personal relationship with key players that you can add to your Rolodex (do they still make those?). You get our point!

Want to join the #SocialSquad? There’s still time to apply. Application deadline is 4/3. If you have any questions, tweet us at @Beblogalicious!
