Marketing Strategies for Artists, Performers, and Creatives


NYFA is pleased to present this free online workshop in partnership with the Office of the Arts, City of Alexandria. Whether you’re an artist, performer, musician, or creative, marketing is an essential part of your work. Yet the process is often difficult: what is the best use of your limited time and resources, and can you make sure that you’re using your channels effectively? To help you answer these questions, marketing expert Molaundo Jones, Senior Director of Communications and Partnerships at Art21, will advise how to effectively utilize marketing tools in accordance with your career goals. The session will cover a host of strategies and techniques, focusing on digital marketing and social media. Time for Q&A will be provided.

This session will cover:

  • Social media tips, whether you want to gain followers; increase sales; or build a network
  • Strategies for cultivating an audience online and in person
  • The characteristics of a strong website
  • The importance of a mailing list 
  • Ways to facilitate opportunities online (that translate to real life!)
