Making Waves with your Webseries Part 4 – Marketing

Film Insight is back with a 4 part Web Series Panel. The audio is recorded from an event that took place in August as a partnership between the Bay Area Women in Film and Media and Producer Foundry. In the fourth and Final installment, the panel shares some excellent insights on how to target and define a niche audience, who to send a press release to, how to get press and gain a following within your niche, and measure engagement to see if your marketing is working.  In the words of PAmela Day “It’s pretty easy to measure things that just don’t matter.”  Take a listen and get a better idea of what does matter so you can spread your project far and wide.   Subscribe on iTunes to get all four parts!

Panelists include Ryan Lynch Creator, Director and Executive Producer of SanFranLand,

Florencia Manovil Co-creator, Head Writer, Director & Producer of Dyke Central.

Rosie Ferdin Cruz Co-creator and actor in Hush

Pamela Day Social Media Guru

FEATURED MODERATOR Maya Zuckerman Co-Founder of TransmediaSF

Amazing!
