I have three BIG announcements for #Blogchat in July! The first is that Club Med will be the official sponsor for #Blogchat in July! Club Med offers vacation resorts in several locations around the world! Club Med is also considered the original all-inclusive resort, and one of the most recognizable brands in the world!
So I know what you’re thinking, ‘So Mack, does this mean Club Med is going to give away a trip to one of its resorts? ’
Uh yeah, that’s exactly what it means! As part of Club Med’s sponsorship of #Blogchat in July, they will give away a 7-night stay at a resort for 4 people! ONE lucky winner will receive a stay at their choice of two different Club Med resorts:
Sandpiper Bay, Florida – This resort is located in Florida and perfect for families and offers plenty of sports and family-related activities. It also has the only L’occitane Spa in North America.
Turkoise in the Caribbean – This resort is for singles and couples and located on the island of Providenciales, in the Caribbean Sea. It is known for its beautiful beaches and snorkeling.
The winner will be responsible for travel, and can claim the prize for up to one year, or till July 31st, 2013. In order to be eligible to win the trip, you need to do two things:
2 – Participate in #Blogchat from 8pm-9pm Central each Sunday in July.
That’s it! On July 29th shortly after the OPEN MIC #Blogchat ends, we’ll announce the winner! So please follow @ClubMedOfficial on Twitter and participate in #Blogchat in July, and you’re in the running to win a trip to either Turkoise or Sandpiper Bay!
And now it’s time to cue the cheezy cable informercial guy voice: But wait, there’s MORE!
In July we will have not one but TWO special co-hosts!
The July 1st #Blogchat will kick off Club Med’s sponsorship, but it is also the night we will welcome Alexis Grant as co-host to help us learn how to Get Your Guest Posts Accepted! This is a topic that y’all have been asking about for a while, and I said I wanted to wait till I found the perfect co-host for us! Alexis fits the bill, as she is a digital strategist, but also the editor of Brazen Careerist! Alexis gets pitched constantly from bloggers that want to write guest posts for Brazen Careerist, so she’ll walk us through how to craft the perfect pitch for our guest post submissions, plus how to decide what to write about!
Then on July15th, we welcome back C.C. Chapman as co-host! Our topic on July 15th will be How to Create Content During Your Family Vacation. I think this will be a very interesting topic as C.C. does a lot of traveling with his family, and he’ll give us some tips for not only creating content during our vacations, but also how to balance our time between recording our memories, and making those memories! Of course, C.C. wrote THE book on content creation along with the fantabulous Ann Handley, The Content Rules!
The topics for July 8th and 22nd haven’t been set yet, but I’ll post them on Twitter and #Blogchat’s Facebook page as soon as they are! I’m so grateful to have Club Med on as sponsor and so excited that Alexis and C.C. can join us PLUS for the topics they’ll be teaching us about! And very happy that one of you will win a very kickass vacation!
So it looks like we are in for a big July with #Blogchat, and guess what, there’s more big #Blogchat announcements coming soon
