Social Media Masterclass
Head of Production, Social
Social Media Masterclass: #ProSocial – A Promo and Social Love Story
#ProSocial: Pretty sure I just created a word and possibly a new hashtag but as a creative and passionate storyteller, this is a love story that even Taylor Swift would sing about!
In this re-invention of television and content creation, audiences want to consume content when they want, how they want and where they want. In order to feed this demand and break through the everyday onslaught of content clutter to connect with audiences in a meaningful way… we need enormous budgets! OR we could embrace ProSocial. During this 2-hour masterclass, I will share the ups and downs of this love story by sharing examples and real data (no exaggerated numbers here!) on how as a couple, if we communicate and respect each other’s creative hearts we truly are a match made in heaven.
