Digital Marketing Fair Street Music Vila-seca

This Friday May 7, 2010 I have the pleasure of giving the conference "The 10 most common mistakes in Internet communication in the field of music"Within the framework of the Fair and the 11th Street Music Vila-seca.

Este certamen se viene celebrando desde el año 2000 y tiene por objetivo descubrir nuevos valores musicales, para su posterior incorporación profesional a la programación de festivales, conciertos y otros eventos relacionados con la música. De ahí que sea especialmente importante para estos grupos saber cómo enfocar su comunicación en internet y concretamente, qué errores no cometer. Este es el motivo por el que se han incluido en estas jornadas sesiones como la mía, orientadas a la formación en Marketing Digital para estos grupos.

Among those attending the fair are also programmers shows (private and public) seeking new groups to display in their auditoriums, theaters and festivals. The programming of the fair to bring together these groups (new groups on the one hand, and programmers, on the other) is really interesting. It is available here: http://www.firacarrer.cat

It will be a pleasure, but also an honor to lend a hand in improving communication groups begin their professional activities. For this I am preparing slides with good and bad practices carried out on web pages (and other forms of online communication) of the attendees themselves. I'll post the presentation in this post, after the conference ended.

10 shares of Digital Marketing for Municipal Theatres

On Tuesday 23 February, I had the pleasure of participating in the conference "The challenge of filling a Theater"Organized by the Barcelona Provincial Council 16 and 23, with the aim of helping local theaters to market more effectively their spaces.

My participation was in the form of practical paper that I listed and explained some Digital Marketing actions that can be performed easily and cheaply by the theaters themselves.

Prepare this paper was not easy. Most theaters do not have their own website and use the website of their respective municipalities to publicize their programs. On the other hand, promotion budgets are scarce and human resources devoted to the management of these theaters are also scarce, although these professionals make up with dedication and commitment to improve day after day the results obtained by their establishments.

So although SEO is one of the most effective techniques of Digital Marketing in this case was dismissed for lack of website on which direct control you have. This caused had to seek actions were feasible but were based on the use of other techniques used to attract visitors to a website.

The end result was 18 concrete actions (although the title enunciated 10 shares), that theaters can apply from tomorrow, and in many cases, without extra funding, although with working hours on the network.

This is the presentation I used for the presentation.

The day began with a presentation by Jordi Sellas interesting entitled "New Generation Cultural Marketing"Among other things, he explained how the Cultural Marketing is a Marketing Experiences and how this is a competitive advantage and, therefore, should focus communication transmission is a" positive and direct experience " , something that is increasingly rare in this world of virtual experiences.

After leaving the bar very high in both the quality of the paper and the rapporteur, it was my turn to me. My presentation was titled "The 10 most common mistakes in online communication companies in the world of performing arts". To make this presentation, previously analyzed the websites of twenty assistants and in my presentation I was enumerating communication errors being committed (although I tried to use the pages more like best practice, that as examples of malpractice). Some of these errors are, for example, not of who is the target audience of the site, using technology not suitable for web pages, not taking into account the potential of web 2.0 in their communications, etc.

Deputy under these lines the power point I used to illustrate the presentation.

After my presentation, we made a break for lunch and afternoon rebuked the day with a session given by Daniel Olivares, in which we explained the basis of conversion of visits to users.

The day ended with Georgina Cisquella, an excellent communicator, with extensive experience in cultural communication, which gave us a very interesting presentation entitled "Theater, Internet and Media"In which he showed us the latest trends in communication. For me, it was really an inspiration.

From these lines I can only thank the CIATRE provided as to be invited to participate in this conference and congratulate them for organizing the event so much.
