This Thursday, 26 March, Music Ally is holding a free webinar called ‘Bringing Live Online’ to offer advice on how to make the most of live streams in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The webinar wil be around an hour long, presented by Patrick Ross, senior vice president of digital strategy at Music Ally, and will cover a range of platforms, case studies and lessons for artists.
In addition to Facebook Live and YouTube, this online session will be an opportunity to better understand more-niche platforms such YouNow and to find out how artists have been using them to generate income.
The webinar, supported by MQA, will be hosted on Zoom and there will be a maximum audience capacity of 500 people.
It will be taking place at 5pm CET / 4pm GMT / 12pm EDT / 9am PDT. It’s free, but pre-registration is required and you can find the link here.
