Marking the 2 year anniversary of Adventures in Visibility, I welcome back my good friend of . Mia recently spent 3 weeks in Italy celebrating her birthday and brilliantly designed the adventure as a showcase for several travel brands. #MiaOnTheGo Brand Ambassador provided a spotlight and new visibility for the companies she worked with, as well as herself. We discuss the why, what and the how that sparked Mia’s adventure and what that’s done for her business.
On the Hangout we discuss:
- How brand ambassadorship and The Mia Connect are related
- How Mia put together #MiaOnTheGo
- Lessons learned on her adventure
- What happens after the event
(Timestamps are included on the YouTube video)
