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.

How to Use BandPage Everywhere to Connect More Deeply with Your Fans
Join Brian and Michael Brandvold from The Music Biz Weekly for a 60 minute free webinar, followed by a 30 minute Q&A.
When: Monday, Oct. 08, 2012
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM (Pacific Time)
We are very excited to have Matt Conn, Dr. of Pages from BandPage, be our special guest to help deliver this webinar:
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
