Marketing Book for Illustrators

You might have remembered that last year I was planning on launching a course around using social media for illustrators and creatives. I created notes, worksheets and even a few hours worth of video. But then I discovered that while online courses try have the best interests for everyone, the people using them are incredible sly. They purposely give bad reviews to courses and then good reviews to their own, in a bid for the top slots. They employ others to spend their days creating accounts and just ruining it for everyone. So I decided against it. I deleted my videos and worksheets and moved on.

For months I sat, doing other projects, working on other things, when I came across my notes. I looked at them. Over 40 pages of information, already typed up and ready to go.

Social Media & Marketing for Illustrators Character

Social Media

For those of you who receive my newsletter, or follow me on social media, you might know that I am in the process of putting together an online course on Social Media & Marketing for Illustrators. The course won’t be a ‘how to create a profile on Facebook’ but more about how to tailor social media marketing for illustrators, get inspired for campaigns, and ideas on getting noticed.

I’ve finished putting together the first draft on paper but now have to translate that for video. I thought I would incorporate a character throughout the series. I have drawn up a few animals to play around with. Depending on the topic of the module, I thought I would use the character in a quick illustration.

Anyone have a favorite?
