Social Media & Making Art a Business workshops by Reina Cottier

Make art your business

This is predominantly for artists /creatives.

With almost 30 years of self employment (in 5 businesses) under my belt, I’ll share with you how I made my art my business using Social Media, (and other online sites) & how I increased art sales online with a relatively small following, and then built that following up with genuine, authentic input. How I built a global following (from New Zealand) and that translated into regular art sales across the world.
Also, how to make the most of the followers you do have,
rather than constantly trying to gain more.

3 hour or full day (bring your own device) workshops.

Can be one on one, or groups.

TESTIMONIALS:

“Ive attended two of Reinas workshops now on social media and promoting business and found both to be very valuable.  Reina clearly understands how to use social media and gets her point across simply and effectively with practical examples which are relevant to someone running a business and not someone who has a fascination with the inner workings of Facebook or Instagram for the sake of it.
As a working artist who relies heavily on social media I would definitely  recommend her sessions”
-Ian Preece-Trustee (Chairperson) Mercury Bay Art Escape
….
I spent a half day with Reina in her studio learning all her tricks, we used an array of mediums, stencils, acrylic, inks, spray paint and much more. It was honestly the best 3 hours Ive had with regard to my art and feeling brave enough to try different things. I learned so much! Over the following months Im going to apply these techniques to my own art and I havent felt this excited about art in ages! Thank you Reina!
-Marion Burton
….
“MY ART WILL BE DISCOVERED.” If I keep working in my studio someone will discover me. No they  wont!!!. Exposure equals success. Reina will be able to walk you thru the ins and outs of online marketing, & building your presense in an ever increasing online art world. Reina has inspired  me to learn more about  what I need to do to make this all happen, and with her support  I have  been successful with online selling and advertising.”  
-Wendy Walls- Artist
…….

“The best thing I ever did was invest in a full day workshop with Reina. She knew how to connect with everyone and was very attentive and patient with all our individual needs. I learned so many new techniques that has helped my art to progress to the next level which, as a beginner, was what I was hoping for. Love her attitude & sense of humour too! Cant wait for the next one!”
-Cheryl Lovegrove- Artist
…..
“Reina’s social media workshop is so practicaland informative. She uses live examples of her own successful social media strategies which is so helpful for all aritsts sellling their work through social media. channels! Totally ecommend Reina.”
-Kathryn Tsui – former Curator & Administrator of the Mercury Bay Art Escape.

…..
“We were very pleased to have Reina as our workshop tutor last year.  She was generous in sharing her techniques using  stencils, rollers, overlaying, blending and fine work with free flowing inks & paint.  Reina did a group demonstration and also gave us all individual  attention.  We all came away inspired and some of us have continued with inks and others are using the techniques learned .  I would highly recommend Reina as a tutor .”
-Rachael Churton
Morrinsville Lyceum Club

….
“I have been an artist for twenty years and approx four years ago I recognised the need to build a social media platform to grow my sales and my brand. Knowing little in this area I met with Reina Cottier and spent an outstanding day with her in Tairua to build my understanding of this outlet. Reina’s knowledge and expertise was simply amazing and she set me on a path to significantly improve my sales results and to enjoy more success without the reliance on galleries who take a substantial amount of my sale price as commission. I am so grateful to Reina for sharing her expertise and ongoing support. I strongly recommend her to you if you are wishing to grow your art business.
-Gaylene Lonergan- Artist
