Oculto Miami Manor Opening at Soho Studios on Thursday, April 23, 2015.  This was one of the best promotional parties I have been to in awhile.  You walked into the main room, have a beer, take some pictures and pick one of three doors to venture into.  Once you enter the door you have three different experiences in three different rooms, all with period and story decor and interactive actors and activities. So much fun.  As you exit into the main room, you join everyone else with great music, drinks and food.  What a great night!!!!

There are tools, many of them free or low cost, that help a user understand the impact of their social media promotion. Come and learn how to identify your best channels and what sort of posts create the most impact.

How do you know if the platforms you use are where your potential new buyers are? How do you know if the kind of posts you make are appealing to potentially new buyers and fans? This seminar will help you save time and sell more art. As you focus your social media promotional efforts to those that really bring in new buyers and fans, you will see a greater return on your investment. Yes, we will be talking real numbers, how you can find those numbers, and how to understand them.
