April 29, 2010Finding Your Online Voice 2:00pm-3:30pm Eastern Presenter: Maryann Devine Registration: $25
When we’re talking about social media, it's easy to get caught up in the technical nuts and bolts. In this webinar, you'll hear about the softer side of connecting with your audience online.
Think about how you use social media in your personal life. What would your best friends think if you posted updates on Facebook like “What’s your favorite thing about my New Year’s Eve party? Post in the comments!!! Invites still available!”
That’s how many arts organizations use social media – as desperate micro-advertising. And that's why people ignore it.
In this 90 minute webinar, you will learn:
- How your unique voice helps your audience listen up
- The keys to extending that voice online
- How to avoid common pitfalls
- How other arts organizations get it right
