This seminar is about maximizing social media tools and platforms, which give visual artists new ways to market their creations and to connect with buyers all over the world. If someone searches for your business, what do they see? Are they intrigued enough to buy from you or do they move on? Are you consistent in your social media posts? This class is about making sure you have a good online presence and using Internet tools to highlight your art.
