From YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Musical.ly, YouNow, and beyond – what social media platforms are YOU on? When asked that question, the list could probably go on and on. That’s the world we live in – the social media world and my, oh my has it changed our lives in more ways than imaginable. There’s only one stupendous convention that celebrates the wonderful world of online-video making that we live in and it’s none other than the epic and renowned VidCon convention. 8 years ago, VidCon started off as a convention that celebrates creating amazing content for online platforms such as YouTube. Now, 8 years later, VidCon has and continues to grow and establish itself as one of the biggest conventions out. VidCon, which garners over 27,000 attendees each year (and that number continues to grow) has now gone international and in addition to its annual convention held at the Anaheim Convention Center, VidCon is hosting conventions in Europe and Australia as well.

This year, the prestigious VidCon convention was held on June 22 – 24, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. As soon as you see the extra large “VidCon” sign posted outside of the Anaheim Convention Center, you know that you’re in for three of the greatest days of your life. VidCon never fails to give attendees three of the most unforgettable days – from community pass holders, to creators, those from the industry as well as the featured content creators themselves. This year was yet again jam-packed with an indescribable amount of excitement. VidCon had over 400 of the biggest content creators out, basically meaning it was three days of pure “fan”-demonium and could you blame us?! Some of the many online video makers in attendance included highly-acclaimed creators such as Casey Neistat, The Fine Brothers, Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Joey Graceffa, Miranda Sings, Dan Howell, Phil Lester, Kian Lawley, Jc Caylen, Tyler Oakley, Jenna Marbles, Zach King, Anthony Padilla, GloZell, Kingsley, Meg DeAngelis, the Merrell Twins, Alisha Marie, Bethany Mota, Patrick Starrr, Alli Fitz, AndreasChoice, Bertie Gilbert, Caspar Lee, Bretman Rock, David Dobrik, Liza Koshy, Ingrid Nilsen, Lele Pons, Leroy Sanchez, Marcus Butler, Ricky Dillon, Rosanna Pansino, Zach Clayton, and many, many more. VidCon creators and geniuses, John Green and Hank Green were also in attendance.

Attendees were able to enjoy a ton of interesting panels and interviews at the many stages at Vidcon including the Vidcon Gaming Stage, Instant Interview Stage, and others. Attendees were able to learn more about their favorite online-video creators and even get to ask them some of their burning questions. Industry pass holders were able to get the latest insight in the world of online-video making and what’s next in this fast-paced, constantly evolving world. VidCon is the perfect place for fans to get up close and personal with their favorite creators. There were many meet and greet opportunities where fans were able to take some of the cutest photos with the creators they love the most.

The fun and excitement continued at VidCon’s Expo Hall. The Expo Hall is definitely one of everyone’s favorite places to go to and hang out at – both attendees and featured creators themselves like to stop by and visit all of the booths. The Expo Hall had many terrific areas to stop by at – from Nickelodeon, who had a whole area with tons of excellent activities for everyone to enjoy. People were able to make their very own slime to take home with them as their VidCon souvenir and even get the chance to be slimed themselves! (You know that it’s everyone’s dream to be slimed at least once in their life). Nickelodeon even had dancing sensation, singer, and social media star, JoJo Siwa debut her new music video at VidCon and even share the love by giving fans some of her signature JoJo Siwa bows.

Other fun booths and areas at VidCon’s Expo Hall included the Cooking Channel’s “Genius Kitchen” where you were able to get a hands on experience and fulfill your sweet tooth by decorating your very own donut. Dove, Maltesers, M&Ms, NBC, Despicable Me 3, Live.Me, Disney, Taco Bell, Studio71, Instagram, Hubert’s Lemonade, Musical.ly and more all had incredible activities and great photo-ops for VidCon attendees to enjoy.

Our faves at AwesomenessTV also had a lot planned out for VidCon guests. A wonderful AwesomenessTV and Live.Me ball pit was right outside of the convention center for everyone to try out and get a slow-mo video of themselves taking a dive into the ball pit. AwesomenessTV also had its festival stage where people were able to see great performances and jam out all day long. Just as cool as the inside of the convention center was the outside – tons of food trucks with scrumptious treats were lined up outside if you wanted to take a break from your hectic VidCon day and get some grub.

There is no question as to why VidCon is such a great success. No amount of words can fully describe just how enjoyable VidCon is. It’s a great place to celebrate your love for creating or those that you admire watching on YouTube and other social media platforms. VidCon has helped people believe in themselves, inspire individuals to follow after their dreams and express themselves by creating videos, and it has even allowed friendships to be created. What better place to meet new people and make new friends than at a convention where everyone shares the same love and passion for online-video making?! VidCon is a terrific event for friends and families to go to and it’s a very safe and organized environment.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of covering VidCon 2017 for my fourth year in a row. VidCon is, without a doubt, one of my favorite events of the year and I always look forward to it.

VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Zach King And Brendan Gahan “Kept It Real” At VidCon 2017 With Their Informative Panel About Influencer Marketing!

28 Jun

alexisjoyvipaccess

Working on your YouTube channel and creating content you love and are proud of is always an exciting thing to do. Online video making is so spectacular in so many ways as it allows us all to express ourselves and what we’re passionate about, and to add onto all of the fun, sometimes brands may even reach out to you for paid / sponsored content. Imagine if one of your favorite brands like Coca Cola, Crayola, Taco Bell, or Nike saw your work and reached out to you to partner up and create a video or some kind of content for your social media platforms and even get the opportunity to get paid for it?! It’s so great to see when your hard work pays off and to get incredible opportunities like that, but what is always important to remember is to stay true to your brand and the message you want to bring out to all of your viewers.

VidCon Day 1 kicked off with a lot of brilliant panels and one very informative and interesting panel took place on June 22, 2017. Social media sensation, Zach King and EVP of Epic Signal, Brendan Gahan kept it real at their “Keeping It Real” panel where the two, magnificent individuals talked about how influencers who get paid for the content they create must still emphasize the importance of making it creative and keeping it real and authentic. It’s easy to get wrapped up into paid content, but what a content creator must always remember is to take on offers that fit with their niche and viewers and bring out content that shows how much they truly value the product or brand.

Many renowned and fan-favorite brands are turning to influencers to help get their message out. Zach King and Brendan Gahan stressed how vital it is for influencers and the brands to have a good relationship and to always keep each other updated regarding the process of creating the content – from start to finish. In order to have a successful time working with brands, Zach King told panel attendees that he often blueprints and storyboards every part of his video so that the brands and production team know exactly what to expect. Transparency is definitely key when having an influencer / brand partnership.

After discussing how Zach King puts in so much effort to stay true to his brand and make creative content even when it’s sponsored for, Zach King and Brendan Gahan opened the floor for questions from attendees.

When asked how long it normally takes him to create his videos, Zach King answered by saying, “We did a video where I was in a museum. That video took me like three months of my personal time, as well as working on some other stuff, but like really focused for like three months on that video, and it was only 30 seconds. For the ideas – play, do a lot of crazy stuff. I’m not one to generally go to museums, but I travel a lot, and lately in my last couple of trips, I’ve been trying to go visit museums or like weird places. I was in Atlanta, Georgia a couple of months ago and I went to a puppet museum where they have Jim Henson’s museum and it’s not something I would normally go to, but I got a ton of inspiration and ideas, so do something you don’t normally do, get out of your routine. ”

Check out a video of Zach King’s answer below:

 

It’s clear to see why an endless amount of brands want to work with Zach King as he truly is a genius and one of the greatest content creators on this planet. His videos are always so awe-inspiring, original, magical, unique, and truly stupendous. No content creator has accomplished what Zach King has done. After the panel, Zach King took time to greet each one of his fans and take pictures and videos with everyone.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had an excellent time covering Zach King and Brendan Gahan’s “Keeping It Real” panel at VidCon 2017. Zach King and Brendan Gahan definitely gave some outstanding advice to all attendees and gave them more insight into brand and influencer relationships.

You know what they say, a dog is a person’s best-friend, and what would we do without our four-legged BFFs? Dogs are more than just a pet – they’re the best companion, they can instantaneously put a smile on everyone’s face, and they’re an amazing part of the family. That’s why we celebrate our furry friends today and everyday. The stupendous philanthropist, entrepreneur, and television star, Lisa Vanderpump and her incredible husband, Ken Todd had a remarkable time celebrating the 2nd Annual World Dog Day yesterday, June 25, 2017 with their extraordinary and impactful foundation, The Vanderpump Dog Foundation.

Celebrities in attendance at the event included James Kennedy, Asia Monet Ray, Allison King, Priscilla Ford, and many more. Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd had an exceptional time catching up with friends and taking time to take pictures with fans and supporters who came out to the awesome event.

It was certainly a wonderful day celebrating our fantastic, four-legged friends. Adding onto all of the fun, the event also had live performances from Nash Overstreet and Symon as well as an epic DJ set by James Kennedy. Afterwards, the phenomenal Lisa Vanderpump gave an inspiring and touching speech to give awareness to what the event and foundation is all about – preventing the horrors at Yulin. Lisa Vanderpump said, “While we will be celebrating World Dog Day, our hearts will be grieving and our focus remains on Yulin and bringing it to an end once and for all.” (source: press release)

Dr. John Sessa, Executive Director of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, who was also in attendance at the event said, “We are using this day to pause and remember the lives lost in Yulin, but also to show the world exactly what a dog festival should be like, a celebration of dogs and a testament to how invaluable they are to man.”
