Why is this our focus?

The title might sound a little cliche, but after Workshop #1, many attendees took a survey. Based on a generous amount of feedback via email, the survey and in-person conversation, we discovered that you walked away learning more about how to use Twitter / Facebook. At the end of Workshop 1, we finished with a lecture about how to encourage and enable Potential Fans to spend just $2/ year. Silence filled the room when I asked everyone for ways they have convinced a fan to spend just $2. Your feedback reacted to this discussion and you indicated a desire to focus on the potential fans before the passive fans. One attendee wrote:

“how can I cut through the noise to even reach a potential fan before I can ask for two bucks?”

Good question!  You spoke up, we listened. In Workshop 2, we will learn more social network & media tips, but more importantly we will explore how to cut through the noise,  the problems you do or do not encounter along the way (including “I don’t have time”) and  how to optimize your discoverability with methods that integrate online and offline music promotions.

Q: Will there be wifi for everyone?
A: Yes!

NOTE: Workshop 3 is also already in planning phases, and will focus on photographs & video. If you are interested in the photo/ video workshop and already create video content for your band and music, please contact coreydenis+workshop[at]gmail[dot]com to let me know. We’re planning something super!

We are a not-for-profit educational group. Your contributions enable us to keep going. Thank You!
