You’ve got your portfolio up and running. That’s a big deal, and congrats. Now you need to promote your talents across the web to get noticed by employers and land your next job.

Promoting yourself can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Effective digital marketing takes diligence and patience. We’ll teach you how to promote yourself - and stay competitive - in our 2-hour online class. 

Topics covered in this class:

  • Integration and business use: We’ll cover the business basics of developing a communication strategy to promote your talent. 
  • Social networking sites: It’s more important than ever to network across social media platforms. We’ll discuss why, and how. 
  • Twitter: It’s not just for tweeting opinions. Find out how to build a following, communicate to an audience and take advantage of this social platform.   
  • Search Engine Optimization: SEO is using the right key words and phrases in your copy so that you show up in search engine results. 
  • Google page rank: This is also about search engine results. You want to get other quality websites to link to your portfolio for a good Google page rank.
  • Search engines: You need to submit your portfolio to the major search engines, who will then crawl your website and index your content so that employers can find you.
  • Add-ons and plug-ins: These software components help you customize your website by adding some pretty cool features. We’ll cover a few. 
  • Free apps: If you search for “free apps” you’ll find roughly 2.4 billion results. Suffice to say, there are a ton of free apps. But we’ll discuss the important ones.
  • Free fonts and brushes: Yes, there are also free fonts (or font brushes) to use to spruce up the visuals of your text.  

Once you understand the business dynamics and the platforms that are at your fingertips to promote yourself, you’ll be better equipped to navigate the landscape of finding employment.
