Which Badge Should I Purchase?
The Platinum Badge is an ALL ACCESS badge that get's you into every conference activity currently on the schedule or which may be added in the future. It is for a blogger who is serious about monetizing their platform and figuring out how to create a sustainable way to build and grow their blog. The Platinum Badge is the only way to attend the Business of Blogging Pre-Conference. Last year's Business of Blogging Session sold out, and this year's Business of Blogging is smaller to allow and even more vibrant exchange of ideas and networking opportunities. Check out the speakers from last year's Business of Blogging Session. Watch the video above to watch the Blogs & Brands panel featuring agency veterans Tyrha M. Lindsey, Managing Director for L.A.I. Communications, Jennifer Polk, a Vice President with Edelman Digital and Mananya Soobhawan, Digital Supervisor at Weber Shandwick as they explain best practices for bloggers who want to partner with brands.
