Webinars and Peer Group Session

In our ongoing efforts to serve the Midwest folk community, we are working on developing a variety of webinars in the coming weeks. Our goal is to create content that will keep us engaged in between conferences by offering everything from peer group discussions to educational panels that will provide helpful tips, tools and resources from experts in our community.

They are FREE to attend

Show Me The Money

April 29, 2020, 7p est

We are joined by Natalia Zuckerman and Ellis Delaney to talk about monetizing your online presence in two unique ways. Natalia Zuckerman is a singer/songwriter and masterful musician and the brainchild behind “Shut in and Sing” the largest online streaming festival for singer/songwriters hosted on Ellis Delaney is also a singer/songwriter and a master of community building around her music, especially through Patreon. These two people have a lot to say about these two platforms and how the monetization of streaming live and content creation is helping them, and other artists they work with, make some money and community through this Pandemic.
