Social Media Event Sponsorship is Strange, At Best

I’m on site, on break, and spilling the tea about how weird social media sponsorship can be.

That means I’m spending the next couple days live-tweeting the event, and walking around with my eyes glued to my phone, looking like your most basic millennial in all the land.

I’m a creepy lurker.

The safest place for me is at the back of the room, being as invisible as possible, but that simply doesn’t make for very good photos.

I’m just that rude conference attendee who can’t get off their f*cking phone.

I’m often the easiest sponsor to forget about.

For some reason, this seems to be a similar trend in social media sponsorship, as well. The first sponsor they forget, letting it fall through the cracks, tends to be me.

There is a reason a reputation can completely crash and burn through one social media post made in poor taste. This form of online activity is POWERFUL. With great power comes great responsibility.

Final word.

This is a way my company and I can give back to my city so that we can encourage it to thrive and grow.
