Workshop: Social Media for Makers

Making the Most of Social Media For Makers

Join Val Curtis of Treehouse Creative Digital Media on Tuesday, March 14th for a 2-hour online workshop for island makers.


As a small business owner or maker organization in today’s competitive digital landscape, making the choice of how to engage in social media marketing can be difficult.


On one hand, it is an excellent tool for increasing customer reach and engagement; on the other, it requires time that might be better spent elsewhere – or so you think. But if used correctly and strategically adapted to your business’ needs and goals, leveraging the power of social media can bring your company closer to success. In this presentation, we will discuss why putting effort into developing an effective presence online can work wonders both for your brand visibility and overall growth prospects.

This 2-4pm workshop will help creative Makers better understand online marketing environments, tools, and opportunities to connect with a wider audience. Whether you want to sell or teach online, or connect with a community that shares your interests, you will find valuable tips during the Zoom-based workshop. Hosted by the San Juan Islands Makers Guild.
