Our friends at Music BC are launching a Career Development Series for bands and music industry folks! The first one is:
TURNING FRIENDS INTO FANS:
USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO MARKET YOUR BAND
A couple days ago I re-introduced you to Dave Olson who will be speaking, today I'd like to re-introduce you to another one of the speakers, Rebecca Bolwitt, who should need no introduction.
Otherwise known as @Miss604, she’s been on Twitter since early 2007 and I would be VERY surprised if you’re not familiar with her because not only does she have almost twice as many Twitter followers as the mayor but she’s also been running her fantastic Miss604.com blog since 2004. She also runs a WordPress development/new media consulting firm called sixty4media, was recently listed as one of the most influential women in social media in all of Canada and she also recently co-authored the book Blogging to Drive Business. In short: she has a lot to teach you this weekend, so you should go to this!
