Succeeding at Social Media: which platforms suit you best?
Mon 7 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
What sort of person are you? Do you tweet or tumble, do you flickr or pin? There are now so many social media channels that sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start… and attempting to keep a presence across them all can feel overwhelming!
This session will explore different options to help you to decide which ones are best suited to your personality, strengths and interests. We will also look at how you can use these platforms to promote your pre-Christmas sales and events, and discuss how to get the most out of your online presence.
All creatives, makers and designers are welcome.
The session is led by Makerhood's two new directors. It's your chance to find out more about them!

Gabriela attended Camberwell School of Arts in the 90s and has lived in the local area since 2001.
