Blue Man Group – We Grow Retreat 2018


Because we want to continue to keep your cost to attend as low as possible with the sponsoring venue absorbing most of the cost, we give the sponsoring venue final control/approval over the bloggers invited, asking they keep in mind our original intent of lesser experienced bloggers learning from more experienced influencers. We feel it’s only fair since they are basically footing the bill for accommodations, food, activities, etc. The brand/venue needs to be sure they will get their monies worth when it comes to the influencers attending. We submit a list of applicants, social media numbers and analytics with our suggestions highlighted and it can be a bit of a back and forth before the final list is ready for invitations. Each venue has their own wants, needs and desired type of site. We will always try to keep the cost to attend at a registration fee and your own transportation.

SEO Morning Session – We Grow Retreat 2018

The group attending will always be kept small. There will never be more than 10 to 15 in attendance.

Our sponsored retreats have itineraries and schedules based on the needs of the brand as well as our vision of bloggers helping bloggers to succeed. Because of this, we are expected to work for our keep and deliverables are tracked by both the sponsor and retreat organizers.

Photo Editing Session – We Grow Retreat 2018

On our application we ask if there is an area/topic you would be comfortable and willing to share your knowledge in with the group. The 2018 retreat had great sessions on SEO, photo editing, pitch building, Pinterest and using Canva.

We are working hard on 2019’s sponsored retreat and information and applications will be made available as soon as it is all finalized. Information will be provided to individuals on our mailing list before being made public. Be sure to share with your blogging friends!
