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:
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkYou’re overwhelmed by all of the places you’re expected to be online
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkYou’re confused about which social media channel would work best for you
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkYou can’t imagine why anyone would read what you write
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkYou’re afraid of becoming a nuisance to people who are following you
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkYou find it difficult to set boundaries around your time – promoting on email and social media can be a time-suck

I can help!
I’ve cooked up something for the summer that will help you
expand your reputation, gain confidence,
and have fun with your marketing.

 

Creative Content Camp | Art Biz Coach
June 29 – August 26
Creative Content Camp is a program to help you get
serious with your online marketing while having fun with the process.

 

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 instructions for using a platform. You need to know how to use each platform that you choose (be it Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) before class begins.

 

In Content Camp, you will:
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkHave dedicated time to do the work.
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmark Breathe a sigh of relief because, by the end of class, you will have at least 100 fully-formed ideas for your blog, newsletter, and social media updates.
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkBe confident that you add value to your collectors, supporters, and followers.
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkFeel less alone as you connect with other artists who have the same struggles with content.
ABLO-SP_5-YellowCheckmarkIncrease your visibility and remain top-of-mind to your followers.

I suggest having 3 items in place before registering:

A blog OR newsletter
Facebook account
1 of the following accounts: Twitter OR Instagram OR Pinterest OR YouTube

 How Content Camp Works

 

1

6 In-Depth Live Content Webinars + Recordings

I personally coach you on each module in a live webinar, also available as a recording on-demand and ready for you at a time that works with your schedule. I teach you what I have learned in my fifteen years of helping artists build their careers. You’ll complete assignments and simple worksheets that will be used as building blocks to help you succeed. Plenty of Q&A time included!

See the complete schedule – including times of live calls.

2

Written Transcripts of All Lessons

We learn differently when we read than when we listen. I want to make sure you know this stuff inside and out, so I’m providing the lessons in written form as well as audio and video.

3

Activity Book

You’ll have weekly activities and challenges, which include System Worksheets. You’ll be creating content as we go along, not just gathering information. This means you’ll get live feedback from your fellow campers whenever you want it.

4

Twice-Weekly Inspiration

Wouldn’t it be awful to go off to camp and not get any mail from home? We won’t let that happen to you! My team and I send you messages with inspiration or motivation twice a week to keep you focused on the activities you invested in.

5

Interaction with Fellow Campers

Connect with your fellow campers in a private Facebook group. Share insights, questions, ask for feedback, and give feedback. Make new friends!

6

Quick-Start Treasure Map

Your first lesson will be delivered on July 12 because of Independence Day holiday. In the meantime, we have things to keep you busy. Our class map will point you in the right direction.

7

Lifetime Access

You have access to the lessons for as long as they are online and you’ll receive a few nudges before they are removed – if ever. By then, you will have long graduated and your career will be outta this world.

 

Bonus Button

I selected 3 of my juiciest audio programs – usually available only to the Art Biz Inner Circle – to support and reinforce the content of the lessons. Content Campers receive these bonus interviews with experts:

  • How to Promote Your Art Through Video with Daniel Foster
  • How to Use Pinterest to Expand Your Art Business with Beth Hayden
