Social Media: More than Marketing

Social media is everywhere, but can we use it more effectively than we do?

While many of us to log onto Facebook, Instragram, Snapchat and Twitter everyday how many use these tools to their full potential to communicate with our audiences and learn new skills as makers? 

In this session we explore how social media can benefit us as individuals and craft practitioners.  This session will explore not just how these tools can be used to market our brands and our business, but how they can be used to share our practice, build communities of learning that teach new, beneficial skills, and develop personal relationships based on engagement.

In addition we'll explore some of the challenges of social media, how rapid social media growth may have a downside.

Join social media experts from within and outside the craft community for this essential seminar to learn more about these ubiquitous tools.
