Market Smarter: Digital Strategy for Senior Executives
11 am – 12 pm
Over the last 20 years, how your constituents communicate has changed faster and more dramatically than any other time in human history. However, many arts organizations have not evolved their priorities or efforts to fully reflect this change. As a leader, it can be daunting to keep up with all of all of these changes and position your organization for success across an ever-evolving digital world.
While senior executives are not expected to understand the ins and outs of digital communication, supporting and strategically planning a digital strategy for your organization is critical. What questions should leaders be asking? How should you budget to support these efforts? And what skills should you look for when growing your communications team? This session will answer these questions and more. This session features Erik Gensler and Christopher Williams.
Market Smarter: Create Better Content
11 am – 12:15 pm
As arts marketers, we wear a lot of hats. Our to-do lists are a mile long and we rarely have an opportunity to brainstorm creative and inspiring ideas. Yet, the pressure is on. With a constant stream of social content fighting for people’s attention, how well are you reaching your audience online?
This session will give you tools you need to think about and create more compelling content across social and video. You will learn content creation tools, tips and best practices. You will also see why content marketing is such an important channel for arts marketing. This session features Rachel Purcell is a Senior Analyst at Capacity Interactive.
Market Smarter: The Fundamentals of Google Analytics
12:45 – 2 pm
More than 90% of arts marketers say they are not using Google Analytics to its full potential. We can help. This session will empower arts marketers to take their Google Analytics skills to the next level: learn how to look for data “red flags,” discover hidden Google Analytics treasures, and save time and energy with useful reports and tools. This session will help you think big about the potential for web analytics at your organization, as well as provide you with some practical next steps that you can take action on immediately.
