When marketing online, popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram have evolved into full communities, serving as low-cost platforms to communicate, engage and listen to your fans. How do you know which social network is the best way to enhance your public profile and engage with your audiences? How do you know what types of content to post? How do you nurture an online community? Marc’s talk will focus on using digital marketing, social media and new media to grow awareness, audiences and engagement. In this professional development presentation, artists will learn a practical approach to building a web presence in as little as fifteen minutes a day.
