Creative Content Camp Independent Study

Artists: Ever feel like you don’t have anything to say on social media?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from artists with this same dilemma. You want to promote your art effectively, but:
 
You're overwhelmed by all of the places you’re expected to be online
You're confused about which social media channel would work best for you
You can't imagine why anyone would read what you write
You're afraid of becoming a nuisance to people who are following you
You find it difficult to set boundaries around your time – promoting on email and social media can be a time-suck

I can help!

Alyson Stanfield photo by Regina Mountjoy I built Art Biz Success by creating content on a blog (2004), social media (since 2007), and a weekly newsletter for more than 16 years.

believe that sharing valuable content is still a viable  (and authentic) way to grow a business. Especially for artists like you who have a visual “product.”

Creative Content Camp is for artists who think they don't have anything to say. You'll be shocked at how much is inside of you just waiting to come out.

The Creative Content Camp independent study will help you
expand your reputation, gain confidence,
and have fun with your marketing.

In this program I will teach you create compelling and consistent content with the tools you already have in place—from social media to newsletters and blogs.

The focus is on YOU creating new content (ideas!) and having the time, space, and support to do that.

I will give you guidance, but will not offer how-to tech instructions for using a platform. You need to know how to use each platform that you choose (be it Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) before you begin the class.

 

In the Creative Content Camp independent study, you will …

I’ve been sharing of my artwork, art life, and art environment much more, which has resulted in more followers, likes, shares, comments, and even more in-person comments. I've begun writing more and I sent out a newsletter (long overdue) with more confidence that I do have something to share and that people are really interested.

I've begun using an editorial calendar, mind map, Evernote, and a lot more hashtags. There are a few more frontiers for me to explore but I have so much more energy and confidence that I am on the right track.

Artist Laura GabelSince taking Creative Content Camp, we have been blogging regularly and sending a newsletter every month. Our numbers continue to grow.

And by being intentional about posting on Facebook regularly – and including it in my editorial calendar – we've seen a HUGE increase in Facebook reach and first time visits to our website. With the editorial calendar in place, I'm not so frantic and just running from one thing to the next. We have a plan in place to promote our art and we're excited for the future
