Monday, June 25, 2012: Webinar – Success for Classical Performers
Thursday, June 28 at 6:30 pm Prague time, you can watch an online discussion (“webinar”) about basic social media for musicians, singers, dancers, and anyone involved in the performing arts. It’s a strictly educational broadcast, and absolutely free of charge.
It’s called “Finding Your Audience and Filling Your Online Auditorium” (Najdi svoje diváky a zaplň svoje hlediště). The topic is blogging — the difference between a blog and a website, how to get started blogging, and more. The informal discussion is hosted by Opus Osm in Prague, and two other hosts in the US.
Learning how to have a simple but effective blog can help you invite more people to your performances … introduce them to you and your special art … and show people why what you do is so interesting and important.
Starting and keeping your own blog is a lot simpler than you might think. And it can even be free! You can find out more about it just by watching the free webinar.
To get started, here’s a short introduction video (click on play, then on the small red “cc” in the lower right corner to see Czech subtitles):
You can watch the whole webinar at once, live; or you can watch it in parts, divided up into several, shorter segments. Here’s how:
