SPI101: Social Media for Artists

Building your small business using Facebook and other social media platforms can be tricky. This class addresses ways to overcome obstacles, create engagement with your audience and some simple tricks to increase the value of your social media time.

Topics covered include when to post, what to post and 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 towards visual artists, but writers, manufacturers and musicians have enjoyed it and found it useful.

About the Instructor: James Gyre is a TechShop member and the founder of Naked Geometry - Art, Design, Geometry, Laser Cutting, and Woodworking, based in Pittsburgh, PA. He has built a Facebook page with 19,000+ likes in less than two years to promote his studio practice.
