Marketing //

  • You’re On: Marketing Into the Live Video Stream: We’re all broadcasters, now! After years of pushing on demand time-shifting, digital media mavens are pushing live video across all social platforms as the must-do channel. The allure is great.
  • Is Anyone Paying Attention to Your Content?: Digital advertising is becoming confusing. We produce and promote more content than ever, but are unsure of our ability to grab audience attention. Advertisers produce a variety of content, distribute it everywhere and use programmatic technology to target/re-target content. With content, media, and technology armament at their disposal, are advertisers getting their audiences’ attention? How do you define/measure attention?
  • Facebook and Instagram: A Tale of Two Feeds: Let us help. Facebook IQ will demystify the relationship between Facebook and Instagram by explaining how Millennials, parents and other people use the feeds and the needs each fulfills.

Record Label Management //

  • Hard Lessons from DIY Indie Record Label Owners: On this panel, indie label owners talk about the struggles and triumphs in an era when record sales are tanking, in a talk sure to enlighten artists, new label owners, and veteran music entrepreneurs.

Intermediate or Advanced Marketing //

  • 15,000-Year-Old Marketing Strategy: Why It Works: The advent of mass media silenced a 15,000-year-old marketing strategy when technology became the driving factor of marketing. It survived near extinction through literature, oral histories, and entertainment.
  • Staying Creative in an Ever Changing Landscape: Working as Creative Director of Resignation Media (theCHIVE, The Chivery, Buy Me Brunch, The Berry, CHIVE TV etc) has given me the insight in working in the space where community is king. Creating content is a major focus, but theCHIVE community is something that sets us apart.

Workshop //

  • Time Management for Musicians: You can keep time when you’re playing, but can you do it offstage? Just as time is the foundation of music, time management is the basis of organization — and every independent musician has got to be organized.

The Future of Music //

  • Spotify and The New Music Economy: Spotify’s chief strategy and content officer Stefan Blom will answer the toughest questions about how streaming is impacting artists. Spotify brings new fans to musicians, but many criticize its royalty structure.
