Make Content Your Audience Can Find with #DigitalLadders
We’re still gearing up for our April 30 #DigitalLadders Salon, Digital Tools to Help You Create (free in person and online in partnership with the VPL!), but we’ve also got one more Salon to whet your digital appetite.
The digital world offers many ways for potential end users to discover cultural organizations, product and experiences. In Digital Discoverability: Making the Work of the Creative Industries Easier to Find, digital strategist Annelise Larson will explain what discoverablity means, the basic best practices to ensure your content is optimized for search online, as well as other mechanisms for getting found and connecting with your target audience. Whether you want yourself, your work, organization, company or event to be more easily found online, you will walk away with a solid foundation on which to build an effective digital discoverability plan.
Digital Discoverability: Making the Work of the Creative Industries Easier to Find takes place May 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the BC Alliance’s downtown Vancouver headquarters (100-938 Howe Street). BC Alliance members attend for $10, non-members for $15, and anyone can livestream for $10. As always, ASL interpretation is available upon request. For more information, and to register today, visit our Salons page.
This May, Plan for the Future of Your Organization
On May 21 and 22, the BC Alliance is partnering with Realize Strategies to offer a pair of workshops on succession planning for arts, culture and heritage organizations.
Executive Director & Board Succession Planning, on May 21, offers best practices around passing the torch to a new ED or reinforcing your board (register here), while the May 22 workshop, Staff Retention and Succession Planning, helps you preserve your all-star staff while still laying plans for future departures (register here). You do not need to attend one session to attend the other, so register according to your needs.
As always, BC Alliance members access all of our workshops at a special discounted rate, and anybody can attend remotely via livestream. ASL interpretation is available upon request. For more information, including rates and registration, visit our Workshops page.
