What to Have on a Kick Ass Website and How to Market Yourself: LDC Professional Development Workshop:
October 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
When I’m promoting my work, one of the fundamental questions I always ask myself is:
‘Can they find me?’ ‘Who are “they?’ And ‘What do I want them to find? ‘ In this workshop, I’m going to give you the fundamentals of promoting yourself online. A quick, simple win is your website – this is your shop window, which will frame you as a professional artist and help get you found by your adoring fans.
I’ll be going through the basics of Search Engine Optimization, data capture and user experience (oh my!). Once it’s all set up, you’ll be reaping the cumulative benefits for years to come!
