SOCIAL MEDIA FOR PRODUCERS (WORKSHOP)
Using Social Media to produce comedy/theatre doesn't mean blasting out a poster to your friends and family, in hopes of getting 'likes' and maybe' attendees. Digital marketing can be intimidating, but the tools to reach a targeted audience demographic are right at your fingertips. This 3 hour seminar helps you to identify which social platform works best for you, shows you how to set promotional goals, and to create content that will be prioritized in the Facebook and Instagram Newsfeed. As a producer you'll also learn the beginning steps of creating a social media strategy. It's time to identify why your show is excellent, to decide who you want watching it and to go online and find them.
Cost: $20 + HST
