Webinar | Digital Marketing Without Social Media

Do you find that social media takes up too much of your time?
Do you want to become less reliant on social media in general?

The internet is making it easier for artists to network and reach new audiences both on and off line. Artists are promoting themselves, consciously or not, as a brand. People are engaging with and buying from makers, artists, and designers online. It’s easy to present you and your work to these audiences through effective communications.


This webinar will focus on ways to communicate with your audiences and customers without using social media. Many artists find that they are not able to devote time to growing a social media profile, many others have other reasons for avoiding social media. This webinar will highlight some of the other effective channels for communicating your work.

This is a one hour webinar where communications specialist, Emma Dwyer talks about how you as a creative can communicate about your work and market your practice. In the webinar you will be introduced to the basic tools for communication and digital marketing.

  • Identifying your brand
  • Reaching your audience
