SXSW 2018 Panel Voting Open

Voting for SXSW 2018 panels have just opened and our founder Mike Zimmerlich is on two of them.  Check them out below! How to Land and Enhance Brand Partnerships Voting Link: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/75681 Description: The endorsement relationship between the artist and a company has been changing. Brands are more selective who they work with and asking for free product is no longer going to cut it. Time to think outside of the box on getting their attention and how to create ‘win-win’ situations such as Snapchat takeovers and cross-collaborative live streaming videos. This panel addresses how to successfully pitch to brands and the symbiotic role that these partnerships play in an artist’s career.
