Spread the Word about Alt

Have you heard about Alt? It's possible — because I posted about it a couple of weeks ago. Basically, Altitude Design Summit is the first conference geared toward Design Blogs and Lifestyle Sites. And it's going to be amazing. It's happening the same weekend as the Sundance Film Festival in Salt Lake City — which means attendees will be able to go back and forth between the two events — and fit in some (free!) world class skiing in their spare time. : )

The speaker list is pretty fantastic — Design*Sponge and OhJoy! just signed on — and the list of superstars grows all the time. But Alt needs your help spreading the word about the awesomeness. So they made a simple plan:

Spread the Word About Alt and You Could Win Big

There are lots of social media forums out there. And alt knows everybody has a favorite. So they made this easy for you. There are 4 prizes and 3 ways to win them:

1) Follow @altsummit on Twitter plus tweet something about the conference — please include this link to the Alt website:
and you're entered to win prize number 1: Your very own copy of the gorgeous, brand new book, InStyle's New Secrets of Style. Plus. A super easy to use Peek handheld email device (in fashionable cherry red, of course). For those of you who think design = fashion & style.

2) If you're a Facebook Fan of Alt Summit you're in luck. We'll pick the winner of prize number two among our list of fans: an InPlace Organization Kit designed by Peter Walsh — plus a copy of Peter's book, Enough Already! Easy peasy. For those of you who feel design = organization.

3) Post an Alt Button on your blog or website (you can grab one here), or write a post where you link to the Alt Website and you're entered to win prize number 3: a Neat Receipts scanner for Mac. For those of you who think design = a clean desk.

You can enter all 3 ways or you can enter 1 way. Or you can even pick your 2 favorite ways. But. If you do steps 1-3, you're automatically entered to win the Huge Grandprize #4, a photography lovers package which includes:
- A Free Agent Go storage device (for Mac) so you can back up and store all those big photo files.
- An Eye Fi photocard for your camera, so you can automatically upload your photos.
- A 1 year pro-account with Flickr, so you can easily share all those photos.
For those of you who think design = beautiful images.

That's over $500 in prize-a-licious prizes. And it's so easy to enter. So let's get the word out!

Two more Alt things:
1) Find more info by checking the Alt Blog and subscribing to the Alt Newsletter.
2) There's a substantial early bird discount that ends on Friday (this Friday!) — $100 off your registration. If you're thinking of attending, grab your registration quick!

Don't forget I sent you a list of my clients, women entrepreneurs here in Utah (recognized nationally) that have been hugely successful with their clothing brands (having Nordstrom carry it, Costco carry it) and been able to keep up a brand that they are proud of WHILE all being wonderful Moms. I know lots of the attendees would love to hear from someone like that too!! It is great to hear from bloggers but we ALSO can learn from those in other areas of business in the design and lifestyle industry.
Sorry I can't help myself I had to remind you again ;)And this will be the last time I promise! :)

With the way the speaker list is growing, it would be a shame to miss the summit! I'm so excited to see the final agenda.

I've blogged about it before, but will do it again of course.

Thanks Gabrielle!

ps. if you ever wanted someone to speak about licensing next year I would love to do it! Since I have been licensing my art on products for over 11yrs and have worked with major retailers and manufacturers for all kinds of products. I am not sure if you already have a speaker for that end of art and design.
