Upcoming Melbourne workshops in 2019
Marketing and Social Media for Writers
Lost between tweeting and pinning? Hate selfies? No idea about blogs and whether they’re still worth it? Join the growing club of writers who are finding that marketing themselves, and their books, and grappling with social media is more overwhelming every day.
This workshop will cover:
- Looking at various social media and how to use them effectively (or ignore them)
- Setting up a profile to use that you will be happy with
- Investigate your website (or planned website) and what should be on it
- The pros and cons of blogging
- What authenticity and transparency on the net means now
- Security, hacking and trolls
- Setting you firmly but gently on the path to your own marketing and social media plan – you will take a draft plan home with you
- Answering as many questions as we can fit into the time!
