Blogalicious 9 – VIP Mastermind Day
Blogalicious 9 – VIP Mastermind Day
First things first, I really thought the ticket was quite pricey, since the VIP day with upgrade was $499.00, I was really hoping this was going to be a great value for price paid. This ticket type is for anyone who wants to participate in advanced-level trainings and take advantage of VIP perks. The VIP Experience Pass includes a full day of trainings (VIP Mastermind Day) and a private cocktail reception on October 5th as well as meals. In addition, this ticket type includes all of the benefits of the Influencer/Industry Pass. Because I’m part of the social squad, this ticket was complimentary for me.
This was my first time attending a Blogalicious event, and besides all the reading, I could not have been prepared for the amazingness that I experienced today.
We started the Day with Breakfast which was a perfect start and promptly at 9:30 we began. Here is what I attended today:

What did I learn: Nicole’s personality is outstanding! She expressed she had a sales background, and told us about her life. Beyond that, Nicole taught us about sales funnels, the perfect pitch to brands, and how you can stand out from other bloggers. This seminar had amazing value, because above all we received a plug and play Follow Up Formula Template which we can use to follow up with brands as bloggers, which I thought was invaluable.

She explained how important it is to schedule things into your life that aren’t only work related, but also help you clear your mind and refresh.
