The Broke Socialite Does...Social Media Escape: March 2010!

Another installation in a series of swanky soirees, The Broke Socialite Does….Social Media Escape, is a two-day experience-based retreat crafted especially for the lifestyle-centric* social media enthusiast.

Held in luxury chalets in Blue Ridge, Georgia, the retreat begins on Friday, March 12th with a meet-and-greet with an intimate group of lifestyle social networkers. A step beyond your average meet/tweet-up, we’ll sip bubbly, roast marshmallows and get to know each other without the pressure of pushing business cards.

Saturday morning kicks off with a couple of special keynotes from lifestyle social networking’s finest before transitioning into unconference discussions/sessions. Mums’ the word on our special guests for now…but rest assured that it’s worth the anticipation. Please. Try not to gasp, swoon and faint. 

Not your average workshop, this intensive weekend is orchestrated to yield results and divided into a couple of target groups (as of January 26):
  • Beginners
    • Why a social media presence is important to market your idea, service, personality or product
    • How to establish a comprehensive social media campaign
    • How to prune and weed your way to the most effective network
    • The importance of consistency and integrity in social media/networking
    • The art of Twitter and Facebook
    • Utilizing your voice to build your brand
  • Advanced:
    • You’ve built your brand: Now what?
    • Expanding your social network
    • Beyond the virtual: Communications steps to seal the deals
    • Developing a strategic plan for your brand
    • Time Management and Prioritization: How to juggle it all
    • What’s beyond Twitter, Facebook and Blogging?
  • Group Case Study on Social Networking Monetization: The Broke Socialite Does… Sugar Coma!
We’ll wrap up our Sunday morning with a final inspirational charge! After surveys are completed and coffee is consumed, we’ll head back to the city so that you may begin to build your EMPIRES!

Bring your challenges, stories, frustrations and successes! The over-arching theme of Social Media Escape! is to help each other become more productive (and, hopefully, more lucrative!) in our areas of focus in a creative and casual yet solutions-based environment.

  1. I have to immediately get my coins together. This is going to sell out fast.

  2. Excellent price, so I hope I'll be able to make it. I'm supposed to be out of town that weekend (JUST MY LUCK!!!!!!), but in the event it falls through, you'll see my face in the place!! :)

  3. Oh how cool! I so want to come!!!! None of these events are ever in NY. Hmm must go check out how much flights for Atlanta are!

  4. Shameeka- only 16 tickets available? You're going to shut down the internet with people camping out on your site until you release the tickets for sale. Well, I'm starting my vigil now until the release date... :) Hope you are well- great idea!

  5. Sounds fab, wish I could make it!

  6. That sounds like an awesome conference - geez, I wish I could make that!

  7. This sounds like yet another event worthy of some SERIOUS press!

  8. TBS--Please, please, please give us some heads up when tickets go on sale. There are two of us that definitely want to attend.

  9. What would it take to get one of your unconferences to Arkansas?!
