Instagram as a Sales Channel for Artists
May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
One event on May 26, 2022 at 6:00 pm
Are you curious about selling your work on Instagram?
Stop marketing to other artists/makers and start selling to buyers + consumers! Join artist + small business owner, Nicole Drake (they/them) for a short series of conversations on how you can interact with followers to take custom orders and sell work from your catalog. Nicole organically grows a consumer-based following via Instagram and uses the platform and its tools to display work, communicate with potential customers, and make sales (all without even having a sophisticated website). This class will be taught digitally; join using a laptop or desktop computer.
Thursday, May 19, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
Thursday, May 26, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
→ Each meeting will feature a presentation by Nicole, followed by a live Q&A session.
→ You’ll be able to act on the day’s information before the next meeting and bring any questions you have to Nicole directly.
→ Registration will be limited to allow for individual conversation and focused interactions
This is not a basic “How To Use Instagram” class. You will need SOME familiarity with the app and should have the app already loaded onto your phone. It is strongly recommended that you do so before the first class meeting and spend some time experiencing the app firsthand to familiarize yourself with the basic functions. Additionally, you will find this Zoom class easier to follow if you use a laptop, desktop, or tablet for the experience but keep your phone handy.ill find this Zoom class easier to follow if you use a laptop, desktop, or tablet for the experience but keep your phone handy.
