Social Media Masterclass
Find out why the music industry is using social media so heavily in this fascinating online video course
So, you’ve built a Facebook page, you’ve promoted it once or twice, but not seen much come from it. You’re not sure why everybody has told you to use one and you’re already looking for other ways to promote your music.
The vast majority of people aren’t aware of the incredible power of social media. For musicians and music industry experts, this can be one of the most important things to get right. Songwriters, artists, managers, producers and gigging musicians all stand to benefit greatly from exploiting the potential of online marketing. Learning how to use these tools properly can turn a flagging profile page into a well-oiled marketing machine.
However, knowing which platforms to use, when to use them, and how to maximise the exposure you get is too important to leave to guesswork or trial and error. That’s why we’ve brought in one of the UK’s most respected authorities to help you navigate your way through this complicated subject.
This incredible online video course is hosted by social media expert Alex Pollock. Alex will show you how to understand, master and run the most effective social media marketing campaigns and platforms to supercharge online presence, branding and fan base.
By the end of the course, you’ll know exactly what you need to do to transform your dusty old social media profiles into serious marketing powerhouses.
