About Melanie Esther
This evening’s expert is Melanie Esther, a branding and social media coach for artists. She coaches artists to help them find and tell their own unique story, and develop a strong branding and social media strategy. She and the artist then take that story as the basis for actions such as release plans, online and off-line ticket promotions, and boosting follower numbers. She calls the method she developed Find and Tell. Melanie works with the likes of singer Blanks and rapper Typhoon, and previously shared her expertise at ESNS, Popronde, ADE Beats and No Man's Land.
