Social Media Week LAGOS 2018
LEARN: Social Media Week LAGOS 2018 is my first ever social media week Lagos 2018. However, from the first day I learnt a lot. The beauty of the schedule is that for every hour there was a class to attend. Although you have to pre-register for the classes; you can however just pop in to any class and I guarantee you will take a lesson home.
The classes are based on different topics which you may not be interested in. For example, my schedule was to attend a class of film writing but I later realized the lessons are not on my priority list. Thus, I just popped in to a class panelled by the likes of Dimma Umeh and Elizabeth Osho. Honestly, best decision ever! I will be doing another post on the lessons learnt like how to make money from your content. So, stay tuned.
NETWORK: Social Media Week LAGOS 2018 is a goldmine for networking; especially if you are a content creator hoping to create visibility for your brand. At first, it was intimidating walking up to stalls/people/companies/stands to pitch about my brand but it is essential to network your brand.
Blogging should be considered as a business. In that light, for each business; there are goals that must be accomplished and tools for achieving them which is where networking comes in. One top tool for being successful in blogging precisely in Nigeria is by referrals through different relationship established in events.
Furthermore, Networking should be two ways; talk but also listen – pitch your brand, talk about your work history but make sure to listen.
CONNECT:Social Media Week LAGOS 2018 is an event for content creators. Thereby, it is an opportunity to find fashion bloggers or vloggers like you. I connected with over 15 fashion bloggers, YouTubers and PR specialist which was quite amazing. We were able to share challenges of bloggers in Nigeria, how to get paid, blogging opportunities and also guides to charging for your work. The discussion gave me more insight on what to do and how to contact brands.
Social Media Week LAGOS 2018 is a platform that if used correctly will open up so many doors and opportunities. Social Media Week LAGOS 2018 runs from February 26-March 2nd, so there is still enough time to attend the event.
I will still attend subsequently, so if you see me, say hi! Enjoy and please make sure to subscribe. Thank you.
