208: How to Make Meaningful Media Content – FirstStage.org

Host Kariesha Martinez interviews Antonio L. Davis, Jr. Digital Marketing & Content Manager of FirstStage.org. Organic social can feel like the unsung hero of audience engagement. It feels almost random what content works and what doesn’t. This week on the pod, we talk with Antonio Davis about how he is able to listen to his audience and create content that engages his audience and represents them at the same time. Listen as he walks us through his strategy for utilizing user-generated content for his organization while making sure the audience his organization serves is heard and represented. 

Antonio Davis is a content creator, who believes in the power of writing and digital marketing.  As the Digital Marketing & Content Manager at First Stage, one of the nation’s leading theaters for young people and families, he’s leading the organization’s digital growth efforts. Most notably the Google Arts & Culture collaboration, bringing 10 of First Stage’s plays to its global audience through immersive exhibits. He’s also a freelancer — providing multimedia content creation services to individuals, groups, nonprofits and agencies.
