Social Media Smackdown for Artists and Entrepreneurs is a cheeky, no-nonsense boot-camp for creative people who are struggling with being heard over the deafening roar of the internet. Jamie Benson, Social Media Manager for the CUNY Dance Initiative, leads a quick-and-dirty training on all things social for participants with a beginning to intermediate level of experience. Twenty three fun, instructional videos, averaging 5 minutes in length, will…

  • "Smackdown" common self-promotional hurdles
  • Provide psychological insight on becoming an “influencer”
  • Fix the top 6 cringe-worthy mistakes most people make
  • Zero in on where to start with social analytics and advertising
  • Empower via Facebook/Linked-In Groups and Twitter Lists
  • and more, much more

The course is designed to be easily digested in under a month (one video challenge per day) but can be achieved in an ambitious weekend if the student makes time and is motivated. A challenging, tough-love approach is mitigated by a relentless sense of humor with the goal of abolishing bad social habits and inspiring a new “big-picture” outlook on fledgling creative ventures.

Jamie Benson, an artist and entrepreneur himself, has 10 years experience working in public relations, as well as successfully promoting his own art. He understands what this creative demographic requires in order to revolutionize their digital empires. Those taking this course will be dared to better stand out in their respective fields and given the tools to more fully express the immense value they contribute to society.
