Social Media Workshops with Artistic Hub


Our new company, Artistic Hub, is now putting on Social Media Workshops and we may be coming to a city near you! (YES, that’s our big hub family jumping above. Look at our company grow! 🙂 )
We are proud to announce our second social media workshop is in SAN DIEGO. NBC: San Diego knows what’s up. – read their article about our workshops. OH – and The Daily Aztec Article. (If this was an audio blog, I would be playing “Get Around” by the Beach Boys RIGHT NOW)

The event will be April 11th at San Diego State and has been organized in conjunction with the SDSU Entrepreneur Society. We want to thank them for their involvement and 5% of all registrations go to support their event.


Here is more about the event, what we believe, and who should attend.

We believe 2 things:

1. There are a lot of tools out there, but only a few necessary ones to get the biggest results
2. Success with social media is directly related to the idea of Social Capital

Our workshop is going to focus on these two things and give you tools you need to be successful. You will leave today with a new or improved blog, an impressive LinkedIn account, an understanding of Facebook ads, your own social community on Ning, an e-commerce store on Zazzle, and the knowledge to harness Twitter effectively.

Who should attend:
Small business owners who want to leverage social media to attract more customers
Students looking to use social media in business or to start a business
Professionals who want to use social media to monitor their competitors, attract more customers, or increase their social capital
