Alt Chat Wednesday: Driving Engagement with Social Media

Comments on blogs are rare. Nowadays engagement happens on social media. Plans are made. Ideas are germinated. Dream teams are introduced and formed. But none of this happens without your guidance. Conversations and collaborations that appear effortless, natural require practice and trial and error and until you find your voice and your pace. 

Join the Alt community this Wednesday morning (tomorrow) May 8th at 9AM PT/12PM ET on Twitter for an hour-long chat about hooking the interest of an audience and enticing them to engage. 

Alter Your World by Recognizing Innovative Teachers

In 2013, we introduced Alter Your World to the Alt community at our flagship event in Salt Lake City. Since then we have loved watching the community strive for change, show acts of kindness, and celebrate doing good.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who supports teachers and celebrates innovation in education, to bring our Alt community a fantastic opportunity. During the next two weeks, we hope you will join us and participate in a contest to celebrate teachers and innovation in education for a chance to win a ticket to Alt Summer for yourself and $500 cash for a deserving teacher.

Alt Chat Wednesday: Keeping Your World View Fresh

How often do you step outside your comfort zone? Change up your daily routine? Why does this matter? Because when we’re not changing up what we’re seeing and doing our perspective and our writing can get stale.

Join the Alt community and our co-host Airbnb on Twitter Wednesday morning (tomorrow) April 29th at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET for an hour-long chat about how to use food and travel to keep your writing fresh. We will be talking about how to incorporate travel and new cuisines into your blogging, engage readers in your adventures, and more.

Instagram Contest Giveaway: Show Us the Shoes Taking You Places

A consistent theme at Alt Summit is that the overnight success is a myth. As many entrepreneurs and creatives know, success involves a lot of hustle and a lot of pounding the pavement. So, for our last week of Share Alt with a Friend Instagram contests, we’re combining our love of shoes with a question: what shoes are taking you places? Did you have a lucky pair? Share them with us and tell the story, and maybe they’ll take you and a friend to Alt Summer this June in Salt Lake City. 

Instagram Contest Giveaway: Goodie Boxes and Alt Summer 2015 Tickets

Only two more weeks in our Who Will You Share Alt with Instagram contests! And only 122 days until Alt Summer 2015!! Will you and a friend be winning a goodie box this week? Or a pair of tickets to Alt Summer 2015?
