About this Podcast
Social and networking sites are going to continue to strengthen their chokehold on our content and increase their control on how we consume our online media based what they feel is relevant. What’s worst is we don’t own the platforms that we are documenting our experience on, and they can do whatever they want with our content.
On this podcast, local Bay Area underground Artist Marcus Orelias talks about how he works to maintain ownership in his content and sell out performances without the use of mainstream social media. Orelias talks about:
- Social media science
- Building a social community
- Hand to Hand Networking
- Making access
- Developing a Sphere of Influence
- Count on the people who know you
- There’s no money in music
- Designing your content
- Taking ownership of your content
- Social media is not going away
- I'm relevant to the people that support me
- Giving away product
- People don’t change
