Forget Radio. Let Your Fans Market Your Music
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 3:30pm - 4:30pm @ Omni Downtown (Lone Star) (700 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701)
    Radio no longer drives music sales - social does. In fact, if you get your strategy right, you can drive sales almost entirely through your existing fans.This panel session will be led by Crowd Factory CEO Sanjay Dholakia along with 4 other Music Industry Leaders who specialize in Social Media in order to look at new social marketing techniques that mobilize a fan base to rapidly build awareness and buzz around new music and artists. The discussion will focus around fan-fueled social marketing strategies being used by top artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Robin Thicke as well as emerging artists such as Cady Groves. The panel will examine group deals in the music industry and as well as how radio has shifted to social. In addition panel members will provide tips for social marketing that work for both established and emerging artists including insights into the group deal that helped land Britney Spears' "Femme Fatale" at #1 on the Billboard charts.
