Monetizing the Internet


Join #NERFA365 for an interactive, LIVE panel discussion,
**Free and open to the public, all are welcome.
The world for music professionals has eternally been changing, perhaps never as dramatically as it has in the past year. As we enter into the second year of living in a pandemic we want to focus on the tools and systems that are available as lifelines to build a following and to make money in your vocations. We have three panelists who have been pioneering in different spaces online coming to offer you their perspectives, lessons learned, and advice for building opportunities online. We will be discussing tools for online ticketed events, a review of ways to make Spotify work for you, and a discussion on successfully launching a Patreon system.
