From Our Instructor, Frederick Van Johnson:
“Whether or not you intend to make a business out of your passion for photography, merely existing in today’s “connected” world means there are several mindset shifts you have to be prepared to accept, and in some cases master in order to participate in what I call the “social median”. We are all content creators, and regardless of motive (profit or not) the end goal is to have others see and enjoy the fruits of our work. But with so many options for sharing, marketing and promoting, it’s hard to “see the forest for the trees…”.”
In this presentation, Frederick will share an overview of the world of marketing and social media, from a content creators perspective. You’ll discover some ways to automate, simplify and focus your efforts so that you can spend more time actually creating!
What he’ll cover:
- Marketing versus Bragging
- Automating your social posts… and when not to
- Owning your “friends”, instead of borrowing them from Facebook
- Focusing your message, stay on target
- How often should you be posting? Daily? Weekly?
- WHAT should you be posting?
- Email is dead, long live email!
- Owning your niche
- Making the jump from amateur to pro (should you?)
You’ll leave this session with lots of actionable tools and techniques to help you become a more Creative Solopreneur.
