    Making a case for yourself to the brand is key, I couldn’t agree with you more. A sponsorship is a partnership and you want to make sure that you feel comfortable with the products and services you’re representing as well as the terms. I just wanted to stop by and extend a warm welcome from the Livefyre Community. We’re excited to have you join us, and if you have any questions about Livefyre for your site feel free to give me a shout LivefyreMeg

      meghankrane Livefyre LivefyreMeg Funny thing is that we mentioned LiveFyre in our panel (the one where I talked about Microsoft).  Thanks for stopping by!

    Holy crap! I didn’t even know “outboarding” was even a word, nor a thing and *certainly* not a frowned-upon thing until reading this post. Thank you! I’m totally guilty of (1) accepting invites to parties that are clearly not thrown by official sponsors (though admittedly, I didn’t know this until about five minutes ago…) and (2) tweeting using the #BlogHer13 hashtag with products that are going to make my weekend at BlogHer easier but are not sponsors – I just really love them and I’m a tad vocal about it. BUT NO MORE! This is the kind of info we newbies need so we don’t bite the hand and all that. Just remember that – at least some of us – may have unintentionally/unknowingly broken etiquette. Again – thanks. :)

    This is interesting. I’d never heard the term outboarding before either. I am attending a party at an upcoming conference (not BlogHer) thrown not by an official sponsor. This is a small party, invitation only, for companies that purchase from the vendor. There will a few thousand people attending  the conference and they invited about 30. I’m not sure if I feel too bad about it, though, since they are hosting it in a suite at the conference hotel, buying booze from the conference hotel. In events I’ve been involved with, we did get free space from the hotel the more rooms we filled and bills attendees ran up.
