A digital strategy can mean the difference between “Who are you?” and “Wow, look at how many albums you’ve sold!”

Good news: you’ll find more places than ever to interact with other professionals and reach new audiences.

Bad news: where do you find the time? Between tweets and tags, groups and clouds, friends and feeds, pings and pages, diggs and blogs, you could spend ALL your time on social media and never make a sale.

Once you’ve narrowed it down – which is what this session will help you do – what are the best ways to effectively and efficiently increase your Internet presence on social media platforms?

Get tips, tricks and strategies from industry leaders Michael Brandvold (KISS, Ozzy Osbourne, Madonna, UR) and Hisham Dahud (DJ Shadow, Pretty Lights, The Green) to maximize investment of your time and get greater response for your client, music or project.
