School of Rock: It’s the music camp even grown ups want to attend. With sessions ranging from “The Black Album Metallica Summer Performance Camp” to “Build Your Own Guitar Summer Camp”, these camps aren’t cheap, but they are the music equivalent of the space camp I begged my parents to send me to as a kid. Offered 9AM-2PM Monday-Friday costs range from $320+ per week per child and the sessions are only offered once per summer, so plan ahead. Registration online available.

PLAN AHEAD: Slurpee made sure that our point of contact, Christina, reached out several times in the week leading up to the event to coordinate the details. Leading up to the music festival I was able to share it on my social media platforms to build up the promotion and a sense of anticipation. On our way to the music festival grounds we stopped for a slurpee to grab a photo before we arrived. Great content does not just happen, so allowing your influencers some time to plan ahead is win/win.
COACH THEM: We arrived ready to engage with the brand throughout, so when Christina arrived with a camera crew we were video ready and excited to participate. Sharing the #AllAccessChill hash tag and important handles helped all of the influencers to engage in real time throughout the music festival.
ENGAGE: Yes, I have an unfair advantage because I do social media for a living, but even I get the warm and fuzzies when the brand I am shouting out retweets, favorites, or shares my posts. Make sure your social media team is available throughout the event to ensure real time engagement. The Slurpee team was on point, engaging at midnight and sharing posts from all of the fans throughout the weekend.
MEASURE: Tools like Tagboard and Adobe Marketing Cloud can help your social media team to clearly understand which influencers are the most influential, who engaged the most, and where your brand received the most traction. Audience numbers are absolutely not indicative of engagement. Some of my most engaging promotions have come from influencers who had 10,000 raving fans and some of the worst social media activations I have seen have been from celebrities with millions of fans that really don’t care. Identifying influencers who are uniquely invested and passionate about your brand will save your social media and marketing team a lot of frustration.

Noel said, “We want them to focus on school, engineering, arts, sciences, because not everybody can be a DJ, not everybody can dribble a basketball, and make money at it. Look at, for all the moms out there we have to be part of (I’m a geeky engineer and the son of immigrant parents. My parents sent me to school on no money. When I graduated I was an engineer, but I designed the coolest stuff. Cables, headphones, all the Beats by Dr. Dre products, I met the coolest people and now we have the coolest stuff for kids too. We have the In Tune line that we designed with Nick Cannon that are in the Wal Mart stores and moms love them because you can’t break them.”
Reminiscing, he says, “I wish I could be that young again. Kids today have more opportunity to do well and strike out on their own to do something really creative. Moms you need to be encouraging creative thinking, but also encourage education. Stay in school and make good choices. Go for your dreams, but learn what you can in education. Moms need to encourage kids not to forget their education. Kids don’t know how hard moms are working. Your kids will love you later for being disciplined with them later. Listen to you mom!”
