Forget everything you know about Social Media. This seminar goes deeper, equipping you with the tools and the knowledge you need to use any social media platform to reach your specific goals. No more random, blind posting.

Are you stressed and confused about keeping up with Social Media? Are you feeling like it’s something you have to do, but the mechanics and the lack of direction are just too overwhelming? Where do you fit in a world overloaded with visual information?

This workshop is not about tips and tricks for how to better use hashtags, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. It’s about helping you to develop a personal foundation and strategy that works for you.

This 2-hour seminar (with time for questions and discussion) will help you

— Understand the foundations of efficient communication and how that can help you stand out from the crowd;

— Leverage several social media platforms to maximize your content’s reach and what to do with the attention once you get it;

— Prepare for a launch (a book, website, or anything that requires massive attention);

— Maximize  time and energy while keeping your feeds alive

This seminar is an abbreviated version of Ânia’s in-depth and personalized Social Media workshop at the Illustration Department, where she helps illustrators and artists find their Social Media niche. 

“Ânia is a brilliant teacher, with ideas and concepts I would have never even considered. Truly a great marketer and instructor.”  G.C.

“By the end of the course, I felt much more confident about my options of “advertising”  on social media and how I need to go about it.” – C.K.

“I have a whole new perspective on how to approach social media marketing, and a much clearer direction! It‘s not just helping me focus on how to approach social media and marketing, but also helping me to focus on what‘s really important in life!! Loving your class!!!” – J.B.




Artist and storyteller at heart, Ânia Marcos believes empathy and stories are what drives humanity forward. After joining the online art community in 2012, she’s been building a career out of helping creatives, art schools and other creative companies stand out by finding their own voice. She also hosts a podcast that allows her to go on art rants with other artists. Find out more at her website.
