DOES SOCIAL MEDIA HURT YOUR BRAIN?

Social media is a complex and challenging marketing tool for a lot of creatives, who find it hard to strike the balance between constantly talking about themselves and ignoring the platforms entirely! This friendly and up-to-date workshop covers the basics of how to kickstart marketing using social media, with a focus on the main tools at your disposal and the strategy behind the socials.

We’ll also cover:
+ Understanding your Brand online
+ Understanding your Tribe
+ Choosing the right platform for your clients
+ Tips and tricks on staying up to date … and much more!

All participants of this workshop also receive:
+ Printed materials to help in class;
