Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s):
What is Speed Networking?
Speed Networking is a high-energy, effective way for influencers and brands to connect. You and a brand representative will talk one-on-one, discuss pitches and ideas, and lay a foundation for potential future partnership. Speed Networking appointments are pre-scheduled, last seven minutes long with a three minute break in between, and run throughout the entire day at BlogPodium.
This is your chance to stand out, make a great impression and connect directly with the decision makers at the lifestyle brands you love most!
Why should I sign up for Speed Networking appointments?
Are you interested in working with brands but don’t know who to approach or how to pitch your ideas? Do you feel like your pitches are lost among the hundreds of pitches brand marketers receive every year? Speed Networking is your opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with brand decision makers and stand out as a blogger and influencer.
You can use your meeting to pitch specific collaboration ideas, learn more about the different ways a brand works with influencers, meet the brands and introduce yourself. Most importantly, Speed Networking is a chance to make a personal connection: tell the brands who you are, talk to them about the quality content you produce, and convince them as to why you would make a great partner.
Can I sign up for more than one appointment?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage you to make appointments with each of the brands present. Even if you do not have a current project or collaboration idea, it’s a great opportunity to make connections. Brands are always looking for new influencers to partner with and you might be a perfect fit for future opportunities.
When should I book my meetings?
As soon as possible! There are a limited number of appointments and to ensure you meet with your priority brands, book your appointments early.
Can I sign up for an appointment on the day of BlogPodium?
Yes. We will have appointment sign-up sheets at the Speed Networking room. If there is an open time, you are welcome to sign up that day.
Will the brands be setting up appointments as well?
Sort of. Our Speed Networking sponsors have access to the attendee list for BlogPodium. If there is a particular attendee they want to meet, the BlogPodium team will reach out to that person and request they book an appointment. The sponsors do not have access to the booking site and cannot see your personal appointment schedules.
There’s a brand I really want to meet, but they have no more meeting times available. Are there any other meeting options at the conference?
We do have drop-in times throughout the day (8am-9am, 12:30pm-2pm) when you are welcome to stop by the Speed Networking tables and have an informal chat with the brand representatives.
Do I need to have a BlogPodium ticket to join the Speed Networking?
Yes. Speed Networking is a special opportunity only for registered BlogPodium attendees. You can purchase a ticket here.
I still have questions about Speed Networking. Who should I contact?
Please contact email@example.com for any questions you might have. On the day of the conference, you can reach out to our BlogPodium team at the Registration desk for assistance.
