The panel is called “Give Your Fans a Reason to Buy; Make Direct-to-Fan Work”. It will be held in Room 15 at the Austin Convention Center this Friday, March 16th at 2pm. You can add it to your official SXSW schedule by clicking here.
I was fortunate enough to get a couple of crazy people to agree to answer my questions for an hour in front of a live audience, and I’m incredibly excited about our panel. I was able to pick what I believe to be a great mix of perspectives from some truly bright minds. We have a fantastic artist manager (Emily White), the DIY #1 funded Kickstarter musician (Julia Nunes), a direct-to-fan platform CEO/Musician (Benji Rogers of PledgeMusic), and a full-time Direct-to-Fan strategist (Nicole St Jean of Topspin Media).
I was also interviewed by The Noise Room about the panel, which you can read here.
And lastly, I created a quick website for our panel in order to post resources and more information about our panelists. The site is http://makeDTFwork.com. This was also my first “responsive” website, meaning the website’s layout responds to your screen size, making it readable and optimized on mobile phones, tablets, and computer screens alike.
I hope you join us for the panel on Friday! If you are unable to attend, I will do my best to grab whatever recording we can. Keep an eye here or on makeDTFwork.com
