Branding and Social Media Law 101 for Artists

The digital era has disrupted the music industry, and brought some great and not so great benefits with it. Artists are able to directly connect with fans, market, promote and sell music, without needing a large label record deal, thanks to social media. Social media has also helped successfully break artists into the music industry, a great example is Justin Bieber. There are, however, pitfalls to avoid.

In this workshop, attendees will learn:

  • The importance of social media as a marketing tool.

  • The basics of social media, & the best platform for artists.

  • Branding on social media

  • How to stay out of trouble, legally speaking, when using social media.
