In 2010 It's All About The Data
by Madalyn Sklar
You've probably heard these buzzwords commonly used in the last few years when talking about social networks: analytics, metrics, trends, stats. And many of you are probably saying, "what does it all mean?" Simply put, it's the collection of data. For most, it makes little sense. However, if you spend time getting to know your data you can learn a lot about what is going on as well as what works and what doesn't.Read more
FNO Tip of the Month
What is an EPK? How do I send mine?
An Electronic Press Kit, or "EPK" is a collection of materials used to promote your business, whether you are an artist, musician, craftperson, band, food vendor, other exhibitor, or company. Your FNO profile & site serves as your EPK. Complete your site by adding bio, photos, music, videos, calendar and blog. The more complete your EPK, the more a promoter can conveniently learn all about you from one easy link.
In the Pro search full show details page, next to the promoter's email address you will notice this link, "send my EPK." Click this link to generate an email from you to the event promoter with a link to your FNO site/EPK.
Use this link to quickly contact festivals you are interested in applying for. Before you use this tool, be sure your FNO profile & site is complete. From the My Account area, you can modify your profile page (includes your bio), add photos, songs, videos, blog, and calendar.
Good luck and happy booking!
