Join Alicia Wakeling, Head of Marketing at Freerange Future to learn how to use social media to your advantage while building your creative business. 

It might not come naturally to everyone but there’s no denying that being on social media as an artist is a must-do. It helps you to be discoverable, make local and international connections and develop audience relationships.

We’ve mostly found ourselves with a little more spare time usual in these strange COVID-19 times, so why not use this time to enhance and plan out your social media presence?

This workshop will help motivate you to do just that. We’ll explore:

  • A snapshot of the latest insights and trends in social
  • Platform-specific techniques for Facebook and Instagram
  • Understanding your audiences
  • Creating an effective content mix
  • Using a social media plan
  • Opportunities in advertising
  • Helpful tools and metrics
