About the event: 

Now that we are all online more than ever before, an online presence is a vital part of your marketing strategy, and could be a key method of engaging with your members and supporters - but how can you make the most of the various platforms available to you?

In this discussion-focused session, you’ll have the opportunity to hear how other groups are maintaining their presence online, discuss in breakout rooms your issues and top tips, and ask questions of the Making Music team.

We'll talk about:

  • Getting the most out of social media
  • Building and maintaining your website
  • Creating online performances
  • Anything else that comes up on the topic!

There will be a short break during the event.
