Hispanicize 2016 Selects IZEA's Ted Murphy to Deliver Keynote

CEO to Highlight the Value of Sponsored Social and Content Marketing in the Hispanic Community

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - March 11, 2016) -  Ted Murphy, founder, chairman and CEO of IZEA, Inc., will deliver a keynote address at the inaugural DiMe Summit, the official kick-off for the 7th annual Hispanicize Event. Ted will speak to the impact of content creation and social sponsorship in the Hispanic digital community. The industry-leading event will be hosted at the InterContinental Miami from April 4-8, 2016.

Hispanicize is the largest annual event for Hispanic trendsetters and newsmakers in digital content creation, journalism, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship. The DiMe Summit is an intimate, all-day VIP experience alongside the conference for Latino content creators to develop skills through sessions and hands-on workshops. Ted will offer his unique perspective on the personal, economic, and technical development skills that content creators need to be successful in today's integrated marketing environment.

A serial entrepreneur, Ted has been called the "father of paid blogging" and is largely credited for creating the social sponsorship industry upon founding IZEA in 2006. Ted's vision for democratizing content and influencer compensation is now a reality in global marketing strategies, from top brands and agencies to small businesses.

"I'm honoured to speak at the inaugural DiMe Summit and look forward to connecting with the influential and talented content creators that are leading from the front in the Hispanic social community," said Murphy. "Our goal at IZEA is provide leading technologies that enable sponsorships to reach the diverse Creator-base that our marketplace contains. Celebrating and supporting the Hispanic community is vital to that goal."

Hispanicize is a launch pad for creative endeavours, new products, technologies, marketing campaigns, films, books and more targeting Latinos in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The event will feature social media A-listers and rising stars from YouTube, Facebook, Vine, Periscope, YouNow, Snapchat, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and bloggers.
