Workshop: Social Media for Creatives w/Jessica Riedy

Online

Social media is redefining how the art world does business. Social media offers “artist creatives” an unprecedented opportunity to share their work with audiences, to connect with potential buyers, and to gain credibility without the complexities and politics of galleries. In this workshop, Jessica Riedy of Social Siren Marketing will help you to understand social media basics and best practices, and to create an effective social media strategy. The workshop focuses on producing content for social media using text, video, audio, and visuals. You will learn how to develop a "brand voice” and choose the best social channels to reach your target audiences. This is an online workshop. Jessica will be using Crowdcast, making a recording for participants to listen to again.

Participants must prepay a registration fee to reserve a spot in the workshop: $10.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members.  Class size is 20 and the last day to sign up is September 1.

Be sure to email Arlene B at [email protected], so she can give you the link for the workshop.
