This practical workshop is aimed at new as well as more established creatives (incl. visual artists, crafts people) who want to learn more about marketing and social media, and find out, which activities are best to get more sales.

Do you want to get more clients but don’t like selling yourself or don’t really know what to do?

Do you want to make your social media work better as you feel you are wasting your time?

But if you want to make a better living from your creative work and talents then you do need to get the word out!

Patricia van den Akker, the Director of The Design Trust, will be hosting a very practical and hands-on session on marketing and social media to help you know which marketing and social media activities work best, to create an action plan to get more clients, and to get you more confident and creative in the process too!
