Every creative freelancer knows about LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and a host of other social media networks—but do you know how to REALLY use them to attract business?
How can you create a consistent social media presence? How do you leverage your online reputation to build a referral base and expand business?
At our next meeting of the Freelance Forum, we’ll hear from a local digital marketing expert—someone who really understands social media and has mentored over 400 businesses and startups. This guy teaches digital marketers how to do digital marketing.
Eric Sharpe, CEO of Digital Envy
Eric launched his first digital business while attending the Savannah College of Art and Design. He was personally and professionally recognized in the 2015 “Generation NEXT” of Savannah, GA. At the end of 2015, his company was acquired by an Atlanta-based IT company.
As a marketing mentor at ATDC (Georgia Tech’s renown Advanced Technology Development Center), Eric has worked with companies of all size, from business startups to multi-million-dollar ventures.
At our October event, he’ll talk about using Social Media to grow your referral base—an ideal marketing solution for creative freelancers on a budget.
