JUHLI SELBY: Social Media for Artists


Evening Workshop: How to Promote Yourself & Your Art Using Social Media Marketing

Canadians spend between 1-2 hours each day on social media channels (2015). More than 65% of the online population in Canada use Facebook, 35% use Instagram & LinkedIn, & approximately 20% use Twitter – including influencers such as journalists & bloggers. Many people are constantly within arms reach of their smart phone – our attention is there! Having a presence on social media can be a great way to stay in touch and top of mind with those who already know you, as well as helping new people discover you and your art.

If you’re new to social media and you’re ready to learn more about to how promote yourself, then this workshop is for you!

In this session we’ll cover best practices & advice including:

  • Which social media channels are best to promote my art?
  • The personal vs. professional struggle – Do I have to ‘friend’ clients?
  • Do I have to share about myself & my personal life? Can I keep my personal & business life separate on social media?
  • Do I need a Facebook business page, or can I just use my personal Facebook profile to promote myself?
  • How to set up your online profiles to make a great impression
  • How to build your audience online & stay top of mind
  • How self-promotional should I be? How much can I promote my art without having people tune me out?
  • Copyright issues – how can I protect my art online? Do Facebook, Instagram & other social channels have the right to use my visuals?
