My blogging colleagues at Inside The Arts have been productive as of late and their labor has produced a number of worthwhile posts you don’t want to miss.
Joe Patti explores two great topics over at Butts In The Seats:
- What Do You Know About Your Emails? examines some truths and myths about current email marketing trends.
- Was Your Show Like Sex, Drugs or a Punch In The Nose? delivers what it promises by examining the language used by restaurant patrons when reviewing their dining experience. It makes me want to take a closer look at orchestra Yelp reviews to see if similar trends exist.
Holly Mulcahy wraps up a three part series of “Do Over” articles at Neo Classical (which BTW, today is her blog’s seventh anniversary!):
- Impressions and Appreciations; a gentle reminder for all artists (part 3) shines some light on the darker recesses of artist behavior; most of which is equally applicable to arts managers.
- The first two installments, Graceful, Not Wasteful (Part 2) and Happiness Quantified, Humanist Qualified (Part 1) are just as good with the latter getting a few hundred Facebook shares.
Over Sticks & Drones…
