I recently took a look through a brilliant e-book about building an audience for your web series (thanks to Jill Golick for posting about it on her blog).

How to Build an Audience For Your Web Series was written by Julie Giles for the Independent Production Fund.

Firstly, the e-book is free.

It’s PACKED with information about building a website, search engine optimization, press releases, social media marketing, analytics and more.

Even if you’re not creating a web series, you’ll find the book extremely useful for learning about aspects of building and sustaining your online presence.

This guide is a must-read for any storyteller hoping to succeed in today’s digital market.

About the National Screen Institute – Canada:

The National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) is a non-profit organization with headquarters in Winnipeg. We are Canada’s national film, television and digital media training school for writers, directors and producers. Training is anchored in the philosophy that the best way to learn is by doing.

Our market-driven training programs have led to employment and successful careers for graduates by giving them a competitive edge. According to the 2008 NSI alumni survey, 96% of respondents are working in the film and TV industry.

  • Training programs are led by experts in film, television and digital media – they deliver workshops and seminars and mentor participants. 
  • Participants do not pay tuition fees or relocate.
  • Training is intensive. Participants train in one centre for a short period and then return home to work with local mentors on their projects under the leadership of the program manager.

Find out about all the training programs provided by the National Screen Institute.

After more than 24 years of training and with over 620 alumni, NSI continues to develop and deliver training to meet the industry’s needs. We produce works that:

  • appeal to Canadians
  • help advance careers that will grow the Canadian industry and contribute to the regional and national economies stimulating employment for the long term.

NSI leads in the design and delivery of programs that provide training to Canada’s visible minority and Aboriginal screen professionals.

NSI also commits to showcasing Canadian short films and providing professional development resources online.
