Social Media for Arts Organizations

Last week I had the pleasure of facilitating a workshop focused on how Arts organizations can make strategic use of the social media in efforts to build engaged communities.

During the workshop there was a lot of active discussion and a number of questions that came up that serve as helpful reminders.

Facebook Groups
With the ever increasing slant Facebook is making towards promoted posts and ads as the way to gain visibility facebook groups were a hot topic. By taking the focus off your brand and making it the community there is great opportunity to foster engagement in a very transparent manner that appealed to a lot of participants.
