I was a panelist for one of these forums a few years ago. Really good events. Check out the session I was in (MP3) here.
Monday October 4, 2010 – Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington Blvd. (check board for room location)
6:00 – 7:30 pm
For the start of the 2010-2011 season, we are combining Musicians at Work Forums with Forums programmed for other artistic disciplines to create a series called “At Work Forums.”
This will be a three part series focusing on web presence.
The first session will be as follows:
Presenter: Tim Frick: Author, Return on Engagement: Content, Strategy, and Design Techniques for Digital Marketing and Owner/Creative Director of Mightybytes, Inc.
Tim is an author and speaker, offering workshops and seminars around the country focusing on design, process, technology, digital and social media and creative software since 1998. Tim is also Owner and Creative Director of Mightybytes, Inc., an award-winning design-driven media firm in Chicago. His most recent book, is Return on Engagement: Content, Strategy, and Design Techniques for Digital Marketing.
Artists in all media rely on the web in many ways: to market their work; promote shows; sell music, tickets, and artwork; connect with opportunities, and cultivate fans, collectors, and audiences.
What are the most effective strategies for what you want to do online?
Learn your options to make your web presence—websites, email, social networks—work for you. What can you afford to make, what strategies can you use, and how do you maintain this presence?
This is part one of our AWF series about how artists of all disciplines can make best use of the web. Part two and three will be:
11/15 Website Design: Custom-made or Off the Rack
12/6 Marketing and Maintaining your web presence
Another important note
We are starting to collect music for the next round of local music for the airports. The rules are these:

Instrumental music is preferred. Music should be soothing to airport patrons.
