Join us this summer on Alt Channel to learn the ins and outs of working with brands and to publish your own personal magazine with Flipboard. Thanks to our sponsors Bing and Flipboard, both of these classes are being offered without charge to you.

June 18: How to Work with Brands

Maybe you have begun thinking about what kind of blogger you are and want to be. If you are exploring the idea of blogging as a business or have begun approaching brands, you need to master the art of working with brands.

Natalie Bowman, ad industry veteran and Bing's Marketing Director, returns to Alt Channel on June 18th at 1:00 PM PDT/4:00 PM EDT to give you an insider's view of how to land your dream sponsor. She covers what brands care about (as well as what they do not care about), what your pitch must include, and how to be confident when negotiating.

This extremely popular class fills up quickly; be sure to grab your seat today.

July 29th: Flipboard Essentials

Have you dreamed of publishing your own online magazine? Are you still lamenting the demise of Google Reader? Then you will want to dive into Flipboard.

Already on Flipboard and looking to build an audience? There are five essential techniques every Flipboard MagMaker needs to know to create a beautiful and successful Flipboard magazine. 

On July 29th at 9:00 AM PDT/12:00 PM EDT, Todd Lappin will guide you through the art of collecting articles, photos, and videos about the topics you care about most. You will learn why your magazine should have a clear topic or point of view and why it is better to create multiple magazines over an all purpose or general interest magazine. He will also cover how to share and promote your magazine, including how to engage with other MagMakers.

Seats are limited; register today.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
