Social Media Marketing – How to Quickly Build an Audience for your Brand


Learn “How I got 75K followers in 3 years without spending a dime.”

Next Class: Tue. July 18, 2017 – 7-9 p.m.

All levels except “total beginner.” A basic understanding of social media is expected. If you can @tag and #hashtag, you're ready!

In addition to working on social media for clients including Disney, I have grown a personal/activist Tumblr blog from 0 to over 75,000 followers (now over 76,000) in three years, all organically with no ad spend whatsoever, and no automated “spambot” software.

About the class: This 2-hour seminar and Q&A session will give you a wealth of tips & tricks for promoting your business, your nonprofit organization, or yourself, on social media – regardless of which channel or channels you use (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat).

In this class I'll share the strategies and techniques that I've used to consistently gain 1,000 – 2,000 new followers per month (following a few months of initial effort to get the page established).



Seminars are held at the Process Works Institute in downtown Portland.
2049 NW Hoyt St. Portland, OR 97209 (Map)
