UniverCell IndiBlogger Chennai meet was held last Saturday at GRT convention center and the more people than you know already know and already blogged / tweeted / buzzed etc about it. So instead of adding to the same thing I’m going to focus on the main purpose of that meet.
1) UniverCell as we know is the biggest mobile chain in India and they are expanding like a blob.
2) They want to connect with the community directly and be a part of the ever growing social media crowd.
Now there are lots o companies these day going the social media way to engage themselves with the community. And as for UniverCell is concerned, they are coming up with some serious plans for the community.
Now ever since the beginning days of blogging, bloggers evolved and there cam a time when people wanted to blog full time. People work, come back home and rant about their work on their blog! If they are happy then blog, if they are sad, they blog, if they had sex, they blog… my point is that people love blogging. So how good is it if you can be a full time blogger? You get paid to do what you love! Now that’s a dream job.
Ever since monetization of blogs cam into the scene, lots of companies started using bloggers to market their product. And as you might already know there are more than one ways to earn from your blog. Ads, guest posts, banners etc… Some (including me, briefly though) even fell for the concept of getting paid for each post where I write about something that I have never seen or used in my life, just because I can make $20 per post. Anoop used to call it spamming your own blog! Now why would you want to do that. I have written about holiday packages that I have not a single clue about. Anyway… but to be an official editor of a brand where you be the voice to the community and blog about what you actually love is something else!
Now that’s the opportunity that UniverCell is providing to the bloggers across India. In the meet, they passed on 6 different models of mobiles and asked the bloggers to review the phones. And the best reviewer wins the opportunity to become the official full time blogger for UniverCell! Ain’t that sweet?
So I’m all geared up to choose one of these phones and review the hell out of it. Haven’t decided which one I’ll choose yet, but I’ve started my homework. Once you have written about it you can submit it at IndiVine for the UniverCell & Indiblogger team to judge. UniverCell has also started their own blog. We can keep a track of what they are into right there.
Wait, let me explain…
I’m willing to give away my next 7 generations of fortune to own this piece of land!
