I received an invitation to attend the invite only Social Media On The Sand Conference hosted by Beaches Resorts and put together by BSM Media. I paid a conference fee and am responsible for my own transportation. All opinions are my own.
Attending conferences and learning new tactics to better yourself is part of being an online influencer. When it comes to choosing which conferences to attend it can be a bit of a challenge since there are so many great ones. However, there are two very sought after invite only conferences that an online influencer dreams of being invited to; The Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and Social Media On The Sand.
Both conferences are put together by BSM Media and I’ve been extremely honored to have attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration two years in a row. You can imagine my excitement when I opened my email to find an invite to my first ever, Social Media On The Sand Conference! There was a bit of Squealing and I might have pee’d my pants a little when I read it over and over again, but nothing compares to the excitement of being asked to attend this invite-only conference in paradise.
What is #BeachesMoms?
#BeachesMoms and #BeachesDads are the hashtags used during the Social Media On The Sand Conference for attendees to share their experiences during the conference. The Social Media On The Sand Conference is an event like no other. It’s the only influencer conference I know of that handpicks who they invite, offers them an amazing family vacation at a fraction of the price (yes, we must pay our way) and finds the most beautiful setting to host us all in. Another thing that makes Social Media On The Sand a special event is that they encourage you to bring your family! That’s right, they not only encourage it, they make sure they offer as much family oriented fun as possible during your time at the conference.
Now, nothing is free and the conference does come with an initial fee as well as a price per extra person and a guest cap. Since I’m sure this changes every year depending on which Beaches Resort is hosting the conference I won’t put in numbers but let’s just say you are getting a $3000+ vacation for a FRACTION of the price.
Where is it?
This year’s #BeachesMoms is in Negril, Jamaica at the Beaches Negril Resort & Spa! This utterly stunning and all-inclusive resort is something I’ve been dreaming of visiting for a while now. With stunning teal water, pure white sugary sand and their famous 7-mile beach, I can’t think of a better place than Negril, Jamaica to experience Social Media On The Sand. Not to mention, Beaches Resorts are notorious for providing an amazing vacation experience to travelers. Gorgeous accommodations, loads of activities to do, restaurants that will tickle your taste buds and even exclusive camps and Sesame Street Characters to entertain your kids!
Who attends and how to get invited?
Social Media On The Sand brings together the nation’s top online influencers through blogs and social media and gives them a chance to learn through influential speakers, grow through exclusive courses and sessions and make new friends with others in our same field. As for how to get an invite or what the #BeachesMoms team looks for when choosing who to invite is a total mystery! No one truly knows how or what will put you on their radar, but if I were to give any advice I would say write about Beaches Resorts and let them know you’re a fan, follow along with the #BeachesMoms hashtag on social media, share content about family travel, love what you are doing online and be yourself. There’s always that chance you could end up with a sand encrusted surprise in your inbox next year like I did!
