Soundcloud. Audacity. Garageband. Periscope. Meerkat. The social broadcasting tools available to brands seems to be at an all-time high these days. And most are easier to use than you might think. As a result, more brands are becoming "broadcasters" and starting to use these tools to share richer audio and video content with customers.
Join us for our January monthly MIMA event where we'll feature case studies and examples from early adopter brands, including General Mills, Mosaic and United Healthcare, that are seeing success by using these social broadcasting tools.
There are two parking garages adjacent to the Carlson School: the University 19th Avenue Ramp is across the street to the west and the University 21st Avenue Ramp is across the street to the southeast. Nearby there are also surface lots and a limited numbered of metered street spots.
