Artist and marketing specialist, Suzanne Frazier, will present her talk, “Marketing Your Artwork without Being There,” at The Collective on Thursday, November 9 at 6 PM - 7 PM. The concept of promoting what one does and telling people in three words or less on one's business card is the first step towards marketing. These simple marketing concepts can be applied to any business and expanded in social media. Participants will receive materials and participate in an exercise to help them decide on their three special words to explain what they love to do. Suzanne Frazier combines her experience as a teaching artist since 1989 with her work experience in Promotions and Marketing since 1972, to craft a message and coach other artists towards success. The workshop is free and open to the public.
