If you had to define what radio is about in one word, that word would probably be "communication." And that is a word being redefined every day -- sometimes it seems like every moment -- as new platforms and tools are invented and catch on (and sometimes just as quickly fade away). Learning how to make the most of these new social media platforms and digital tools is key to radio's future.
Do you know the best places to invest your multi-platform resources -- in time, money, and people? At Radio Ink's Convergence, set for March 4-5 in Santa Clara in California's Silicon Valley, a panel of leading digital and research experts, moderated by social media specialist Stephanie Winans, will explain where you need to be, and where developing trends are leading. And just as important, they'll talk about how to create the compelling content that will bring the audience engagement you need, and that marketers and advertisers crave.
Digital media strategist Stephanie Winans consults with radio stations and personalities, artists, and small businesses on digital media strategy at Stephanie Winans Digital and the Randy Lane Co. From social media strategy and engagement to digital content marketing and graphic design, she is all about making radio look good online. Winans also writes for Radio Ink and speaks on social media at radio and music industry conferences.
