  • By ‘support’ – we mean attention (e.g. of agents, bookers, the media), bookings, audiences, a fan base, a GOOD reputation
  • Lots of fancy other words for marketing, of course - including media liaison, PR consultancy, external communications, stakeholder relationships, social network management. And in big organisations, it will be divided up into many more parts: Internal Communications, Advertising, Sales, Brand Management, Corporate Responsibility, Online Engagement (and more). But the important fact to remember is…..
  • We’re all looking for someone to buy what we offer
  • In an idea world – lots of money behind every campaign
  • But sometimes dash is just as effective as dash
  • Not an exclusive list and you’ll all be familiar with it
  • Social networks the new black, of course, and with some good reason
  • 123 billion active users a month on FB; 650 million active Twitter users worldwide
  • But old skool should not be overlooked. Slapstick story
