The Arts & Cultural Alliance in collaboration with The Preservation Society of Newport County, will present “Social Networking for the Busy Artist,” an informational seminar, Wednesday, January 30, 2013 from noon to 1 pm at The Preservation Society of Newport County, 424 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, RI. The workshop is free and open to practicing artists & craftspeople in Newport County. Space is limited, and advance registration is required.
Artists today know that Social Media is an important part of an effective marketing plan, but think that they don’t have the time to invest in learning about Social Media much less actively engaging as a regular marketing practice. Join us on Wednesday, Jan. 30 to learn how it’s possible to use Social Media sites as efficient and effective marketing tools without using up your life to do it. Our speaker, Katie Dyer, will help arm you with the keys needed to reach out successfully as a managed part of your marketing time.
Katie Dyer is owner of CADEAUX du MONDE, an award winning online eclectic, green, fair trade international folk art gallery formerly located at 26 Mary Street, Newport, RI and established in 1987.
