Various methods can be used to maximize engagement within a fanbase while also expanding the reach to new fans. Discover how innovative ideas, cross marketing among platforms, working with startups, and building strong communities can help you set up a successful fan-to-fan marketing strategy.

Rynda gives a shout-out to MIDEM!

Midem is by far one of my favorite conferences. Those that know me well can understand that considering my love for French culture. Of course that is not the only reason – it truly is a top-notch music conference – so when they asked me to do a little video for them I said MAIS OUI!
