Co-presented with Music Tomorrow
Today, it’s hard to find a job in music that doesn’t involve working with data. Strategy, analytics, and operational proficiency around music data are quickly becoming integral components of the modern music-industry skill set — especially in the context of cutting through the noise and making sure music gets heard by the right people, at the right time.
At the same time, in the face of stubborn data fragmentation, shortening viral hype cycles, and new consumption channels popping up on a weekly basis, marketing remains one of the most difficult functions of the music business to get right.
Against this backdrop, we ran a music marketing data bootcamp with Music Tomorrow that provided a comprehensive introduction to the state of music data, and the pivotal role it plays in digital music marketing. Over the course of eight sessions, we walked through how to develop a marketing plan, understand your audience behaviors, and benchmark your performance against your peers, using state-of-the-art data tools. We also delved into how emerging technology is reshaping music marketing strategy in real time, across areas like recommendation systems, marketing automation, and frontier tech spaces like Web3, VR/AR, and gaming.
We are now thrilled to offer the course on-demand, at a 50% discount from the live pricing. By the end of this course, you’ll have the deep industry context, case studies, and tactics you need to integrate data into your music marketing in a smarter way, no matter what vertical of the music business you work in.
Who is this class for?
People actively working with music data in their careers, with advanced beginner/intermediate knowledge of the music business.
