Course Description
This participant-centered course will help you figure out what is working or not working when it comes to your online presence and how to get all your ducks in a row, so you’ll have more time to spend in your studio doing what you love most.We’ll cover:
  • the do’s and don’ts of having and maintaining an artist’s website,
  • the most essential social media channels (and how to most effectively use them in a way that makes YOUR life easier),
  • and how to start up and/or use/grow a mailing list to best connect with your audience and build meaningful relationships to nurture and support your art business for years to come.
You’ll learn how to maximize and enhance what you already have set up, know where you might need to expand or rebuild, how to set up and automate some of the more time-consuming tasks like posting to social media channels, and how to do most digital tasks yourself so you are not forced to hire someone to do them for you. (*And if you DO decide to hire someone, you’ll have a better idea of what you want, what needs to be done, and if they are doing the job properly.)
