The turn out was great! Creative individuals from many different fields were in attendance to hear Tricia. It was the third workshop I had participated in with Tricia and it was still packed with new and innovated ideas. She is a fantastic speaker.
Session takeaways were: understanding your brand, the importance of a website, strategies to drive customers to your product or service, and marketing tips and tricks. I’ve already implemented a couple of her suggestions: updating my professional photo (coming soon), checking settings on linked in and updating information, as well as giving my social media a new look.
If you are in the creative service industry (or thinking about entering the industry) whether photography, art, food, writing, or designing, and you want people to find you and purchase your products or services, email the Westwood Artists at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added their mailing list. We are already working with Tricia to host a fall workshop with a focus on instagram or facebook.
