Megaphone Summit 2016

Bloggers and social media mavens from across America gathered at The Chancellor Hotel in Fayetteville, Arkansas on September 9th - 11th, 2016, to learn more about their craft, network, and spend time connecting with their fellow creatives at the Megaphone Summit.


Soapbox Insights + Influence was proud to be the presenting sponsor for the event, which brought together over 120 influencers; all passionate about creating outstanding content for their audiences, and - might we add - killing it!Our parents taught us never to come to a party empty-handed, so we invited our client-friends from AriZona Energy Shots and Thermaluxe, brought some goodies from Korbel and Ferrero Rocher, and invited everyone to the Soapbox Suite.


The Soapbox Suite was powered by AriZona Energy Shots, and we encouraged everyone to gather there and re-charge between sessions with #AriZonaEnergyShots and Soapbox mobile device chargers. It facilitated a wonderful opportunity for conversation and connection and it was obvious that the attendees really enjoyed it!

Blogging is hard work, and sometimes you just have to treat yo’self! Everyone was talking about was the Thermaluxe Blow-Out bar, by Remington, where our girls got #RemReady for the day’s sessions, while sipping some Korbel (and generally just being fabulous).

It would be impossible to sum up the amazing information that was shared at Megaphone, but we’ll share a few highlights! @pegfitzpatrick was our keynote speaker at Megaphone, and Sister Schubert was the keynote speaker at #FoodieFriday (yes, those rolls!), and they were both just as fantastic as would be expected.


We also had some amazing sessions on everything from SEO skills, to curating that perfect Instagram feed, to creating a killer editorial calendar, with members of our team leading several of the sessions.

So why are we so passionate about conferences like Megaphone? It’s simple really. Educating and creating opportunities for our influencers to better themselves, in turn creates better content for our brands - and that is something we are truly passionate about.We hope to see you all back in Fayetteville next year for Megaphone Summit 2017!Want more? Check out these recaps from our amazing influencer community.
