The best travel is always FREE! travel, amirite? And here’s an opportunity that’s specifically open not to professional influencers like we’d like to be one day, but to “real people” who are popular on social media:
What is #AmtrakTakeMeThere?
The #AmtrakTakeMeThere Social Media Residency aims to showcase how people from different walks of life travel by rail. By way of social media, our chosen residents will share their individual experiences aboard our long distance trains while engaging users through their respective online communities.
We’re looking for real people to tell their Amtrak story. Creatives, Introverts, Families, Survivors, Retirees.
We’re not looking for glitzy influencers with millions of followers who quit their day job to travel the world. (Who does that?)
Well, we’re working on it…
If you’re interested, we hope you’re a leader in your social media community, and your creativity and energy allows you to connect with your followers at a deeper level. You daydream about cross-country adventures, and as an unconventional traveler, you’d bring a diverse and unique perspective to travel. You feel like the #AmtrakTakeMeThere Social Media Residency is on track with your passions, and you could probably come up with a better train pun than that.
Yes! Could be a lot of fun, I hope it doesn’t derail and everyone conducts themselves properly so signals don’t get crossed and no one gets steamed. Need to keep your train of thought focused though, and choo-choo-choose your thoughts wisely. However, don’t focus so far you get tunnel vision; chug a few cold ones to help think, not so many you fall on your caboose though. OK, that’s enough engineous punning for one day, but I figure we’re on the right track!
Check out the terms & conditions: briefly, up to 8 winners will be picked to get a 2-5 day roundtrip ticket and up to $1000 for additional travel costs to the station.
