Workshop – How to Get Yourself Out There

As a creator, it can seem impossible to break through the noise and get your content noticed by viewers. How do you make meaningful connections with other creators? How do you find people to collaborate with? How do you build an audience? In this workshop, we will give you practical tips and will also help you avoid critical mistakes you could make when trying to get yourself out there.

Dealing With Criticism

Negative comments sting — there’s no two ways about it. Learning how to disregard the trolls is a skill, and if you can get beyond that, some comments can be genuinely helpful constructive criticism. Learn how to keep a cool head amongst the hate, when to respond, and how to use critique as an opportunity to grow.

Expanding Beyond Your Vertical

Channels often become known for an identity, and it can be scary to risk audiences by trying new things. These top creators have moved past their original channels, and have developed content and grown audiences across verticals. They’ll tell you how they got their communities to follow them across projects and content styles, and cultivated new audiences for their new ventures.

In addition new agencies now straddle the line between an MCN and a talent agency. This session will focus on which verticals are hot, emerging business models, and the white space where opportunity still exists.
