    A Full Day Workshop in Vancouver
    Social Media & Music Marketing Bootcamp


    Powered by Music BC When: Saturday, October 20, 2012
    Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm
    Cost: $99.00

    Morning Session: The Essentials (3 hours)
    There's more to social media than posting the odd photo to Facebook and Tweeting from a concert. There's a psychology behind it. Learn fan engagement, how to build your brand, and how to reach your target market.

    Afternoon Session: Advanced (3 hours)
    All of the social media connections in the world don't move your career forward if you don't know how to monetize. Putting more advanced, yet accessible, practices to use will help distinguish you from other artists trying to reach the same audience.

    Ooops!


    Unfortunately due to me forgetting to place a certain audio recording into my Dropbox folder (where I can access it from the road while I'm in a different city), there won't be a new episode of The Music Biz Weekly Podcast today.

    Yeah, I know... I f'd up. Don't hate.

    But! ...you'll still get to hear this very cool new episode with myself, cohost Michael Brandvold and special guest, author, speaker and marketing strategist David Meerman Scott when I return to my desktop next week.

    Today's episode will now be published next Tuesday morning, October 2nd.

    Until then... then's tons of old episodes to catch up on
