August 29, 2011 at 12:57 PM (PT)
CRS (COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR) 2012 will be held from FEBRUARY 22nd-24th in NASHVILLE, and this year social media and market research will play a big role. “SOCIAL MEDIA 101” is an entry-level panel covering the basics of sites like FACEBOOK and TWITTER, while “SOCIAL MEDIA 201” is a more advanced session, exploring revenue opportunities, analytics and how to grow your radio audience through social media.
Making its debut at CRS 2012, is the CRS DIGITAL UNIVERSITY, a series of eight roundtable discussions covering topics such as social media sites, website development, search engine optimization, smartphone applications, interactive radio, online marketing and digital revenue.
Additionally, LAURA FITTON, co-author of “TWITTER FOR DUMMIES” and CEO of the site ONEFORTY.com, will share her expertise in the “SOCIAL MEDIA 101” panel and in the DIGITAL UNIVERSITY discussions.
For 2012, CRS has scheduled multiple Country radio research studies as part of its agenda. These national studies will focus on the habits and opinions of the Country radio listener and consumer.
CRS Executive Director BILL MAYNE said, “We are really upping the ante at CRS 2012 when it comes to our focus on technology, social media and research. Our current $399 EARLY BIRD RATE is a steal, and with several events selling out last year, I would strongly encourage everyone to register now. Get to CRS in FEBRUARY so you don’t get your butt kicked in the SPRING BOOK.”
