5 Inspirational Stories for Self-Producers
Here are the Top 5 Inspirational Stories for Self-Producers,
inspired by conversation at last week's workshop:
1. Audience Development Blog: Loving Your Donors - Although specifically about Donors, truly good advice for all who show interest in or attend your event. Also see Kickstarter Tips - again, specifically for fund-raising but great ideas on making your audience feel loved.
2. Seth Godin's Blog - He somehow always reads your mind and delivers the right message. One of the only blogs I get sent directly to my inbox every morning.
3. Facebook Post Tracking Spreadsheet - An easy way to track times of day & types of posts that work the best. Originally created by The Marketing Spot. This one's more practical than inspirational, unless you're like me and are inspired by analytics!
4. Talkbacks & Tamales "By Being Welcomed, Instantly I Belonged" - An audience member reacts to her first time at the theater where I work, geared specifically towards making people feel invited & welcome.
5. Who Won't Be at Comic-Con and Why That's a Problem - an article by Corey Blake on how Comic-Con has nearly shut out any possibility of new attendees.
