A free seven-day workshop for entertainers has been organised by the American Internet Business School (AIBS).

The workshop was put together by AIBS to help artistes, musicians, comedians, producers, and entertainment executives navigate through the new normal caused by COVID-19.

Since the outbreak of the virus in Nigeria in March 2020, the federal government has placed strict restrictions on the gathering of more than 20 persons.

This has made it impossible for show promoters to organise events, thereby keeping entertainers out of jobs for nearly three months.

Founder and CEO of AIBS, Dr Ope Banwo, explained that he came up with the workshop as part of a digital business empowerment and awareness initiative for the entertainment industry.

At the unveiling from his base in the United States of America (USA), Mr Banwo said the free seminar is targeted at operators of the entertainment industry.

He said the online training tagged Digital Business Survival Workshop, will hold from Monday, June 29 to Saturday, July 4, 2020.

According to him, the event will avail attendees the opportunity to learn digital business strategies that any creative artiste or executive can tap into to create multiple streams of additional income for their brand, creative works and fan base.

“The American Internet Business School recognises that even before the COVID-19 pandemic came and decimated the finances of many individuals and companies in virtually every industry, many creative artistes have struggled to understand how they can generate extra income from their talents, artistic catalogue and huge fan base without the investment of capital, technical skills or digital business experience.

“While most serious creative artists, entertainers, and executives do have some impressive presence online, most have barely scratched the surface of the amazing potential of the internet to multiply the returns on their creative assets and brand and create sustainable levels of income that will far outlast their active days as creative artistes.

“This first of its kind seven-day Digital Income Survival Workshop, complete with real time case studies of how some of the strategies have been successfully applied in the global marketplace, will provide a simple step by step blueprint that creative artistes, actors, actresses, musicians, producers, and executives can follow in using the internet to create multiple income streams for themselves through their talents, catalogue, brand and fan base,” the serial internet entrepreneur said.

Highlighting the schedule of the workshop, Training Director at AIBS, Ms Nancy Hicks, described the workshop as a special post-COVID-19 economic survival palliative programme to provide the much-needed strategies for digital monetisation to the highly resourceful and talented members of the entertainment industry.

According to her, AIBS invites all members of the entertainment industry to attend the seven-day free breakthrough workshop and get introduced to some very simple streams of digital income that have been specially customized for members of the entertainment industry.

“Every day, for three hours, during the seven days conference, Dr Banwo and a team from the American Internet Business School will be breaking down one digital business income stream peculiar to the entertainment industry and providing attendees with the blueprint on how they too can get started in monetizing their skills, creative assets, and fan base as entertainers or entertainment executives.

“The seven-day workshop is free for all musicians, actors, actresses, producers, comedians, executives and anyone connected with the entertainment industry, but everyone must pre-register to lock down their spot since the digital training room they would be using can provide access to 100 participants only,” she stated.

Training areas during the programme include Affiliate Marketing Income Stream For Creative Industry, Info Marketing Income Stream For Entertainers, Freelancing Income Stream For Creative Artistes, Celebrity Dropshipping Income Stream, Celebrity Membership Sites Income Stream, and Social Media Income Stream For Entertainers.

Affirming the fact that there is indeed a lot to be benefitted from the workshop, Dr Banwo said, “This is the time for all members of the creative industry to take the ability to generate multiple income streams from their talents, creative assets and fan base to the next level. We encourage everyone involved in the industry to come and benefit.”

“The primary objective of AIBS is to provide modular internet-based training in the form of online and live training, recorded training and home study courses for doing business on the internet,” he added.

AIBS is renowned for equipping businesses and individuals on how to maximise their productivity and profitability on the internet.

Over the years, AIBS has also provided training on key areas of internet business such as brand building, communication, marketing and sales.
