Promote Music With Social Media: Rodriguez, Sklar, Wetterg
In this program, Grace Rodriguez, Madalyn Sklar, and Matthew Wettergreen share their tips and strategies to maximize investment of your time and get greater response for your client, music or project.
A digital strategy can mean the difference between “Who are you?” and “Wow, look at how many albums you’ve sold!”
Good news: you’ll find more places than ever to interact with other professionals and reach new audiences.
Bad news: where do you find the time? Between tweets and tags, groups and clouds, friends and feeds, pings and pages, diggs and blogs, you could spend ALL your time on social media and never make a sale.
Once you’ve narrowed it down – which is what this session will help you do – what are the best ways to effectively and efficiently increase your Internet presence on social media platforms?
The Internet is hailed as the great equalizer for those seeking music marketing and distribution opportunities. But mere presence on the Internet does not stimulate demand… or sales. For that, you need a plan.
And that’s what you’ll get with this in-depth program. For the busy music biz entrepreneur, this is a step-by-step blueprint for success.

Dr. Matthew Wettergreen, Co-Founder, Caroline Collective
The original concept of the engineer, the “ingeniator”, is an artisan who delivers solutions by approaching problems with creativity and ingenuity. Matthew Adams Wettergreen applies this concept in both engineering and art as a researcher, educator, and community strategist. In 2008, Matthew Wettergreen and Ned Dodington founded Caroline Collective, a co-working space in Houston, TX, that fosters community, collaboration, and creativity across artistic and technological disciplines. Caroline Collective’s programming motivates and enhances the creative professional community by exploring sustainable models, such as user-generated conferences, social media networking, and peer-to-peer education. Dr. Wettergreen’s experience as a community strategist includes working in the art and music communities in Houston and Chicago to improve collaboration, communication and share resources. Since 2001 Wettergreen has been a DJ at KTRU 91.7fm, co-hosts a live events show called “The Revelry Report,” and produces national events combining music, art and film. Since 2002 he has mentored individual artists on business and career development and in 2008 expanded this to a community-based educational model called Bandcamp. Having recently completed his PhD in Bioengineering at Rice University with a specialization in Biomechanics and Computer Aided Tissue Engineering, his scientific research experience includes work in computational and experimental biomechanics, cellular solids, rapid prototyping and imaging modalities. His teaching experience covers areas of specialization such as biomechanics, engineering design and Computer Aided Design. In addition to his formal responsibilities, Wettergreen operates in many unofficial roles to the creative and professional community. He serves on the board of several Houston arts organizations, including Fresh Arts Coalition and Bootown and contributes to Chicago Public Radio’s Sound Opinions. He serves as a grant and journal reviewer for scientific and art groups, including NASA, Houston Arts Alliance and CAD Journal. Dr. Wettergreen is also an active participant in the global coworking movement, working to introduce collaborative workspaces built upon the pillars of collaboration, openness, community and sustainability.
