Building your small business using Facebook and other social media platforms can be tricky. This presentation addresses ways to overcome those obstacles, create engagement with your audience, and some simple tricks to increase the value of your social media time. Topics that will be covered include when to post, what to post, why to post, defeating Facebook's feed throttling, using Tumblr tags for outreach, how to effectively use hotlinks, when to invite your friends, and getting the most out of a small advertising budget. The class is geared toward visual artists, but writers, manufacturers and musicians have enjoyed it and found it useful.
