Having a social media presence and being online and in touch w/ various social media platforms is a really important aspect of every freelancers career these days (whether they want to admit it or not). For a lot of us self-employed freelancers this can be a very daunting and difficult part of our business.
It's hard to figure out what social media platforms are best for you. How to best utilize them for your business. Sometimes we become resentful and overwhelmed by the fact that it seems we "must be online" in order to see our careers grow and get new clients. Plus we already have so many other priorities and tasks to do w/ our business it's frustrating to feel like we have to add another thing on to the list...plus it's one that we have to nurture and keep up w/ constantly if we want it to work!
A few wks ago I had the pleasure of doing headshot hair and makeup for a digital marketing expert Wahida Lakhani who has just branched out on her own w/ her start up Digitial In the City! Her main focus is to help freelancers and self-employed business owners learn about digital marketing and develop strategies for success that best fit their business!
After learning a bit about her company while doing her hair and makeup I thought this could definitely be of interest to myself (as I would never claim to be a digital marketing pro) as well as many others that are in a similar field or work lifestyle as myself.
Right now she has a 1 Day to Social Media Pro Class that is definitely worth checking out! I'm sure there will be more classes announced shortly! Also just an FYI any reader of mine who signs up for a class can use the Discount Code - ILOVEDIGITALINTHECITY and get $10 off your class (even the early bird price)...which is an awesome deal! Personally I think the cost of the classes is an amazing deal even without the code!
As anyone who knows me knows I think it's VERY IMPORTANT to constantly keep learning and developing your skills for your business. As a freelance makeup/hair artist that doesn't always mean makeup or hair classes...sometimes it's about marketing or other things that affect a business. So definitely worth checking out if you're looking to master social media platforms and have them work for your business!
