I learned alot about how to use social media from your YouTube Jake and I started gaining traction. After a while I subscribed to SVS and watched this and realized I was doing almost everything you had said and it has been growing at a steady pace! I find that patience is definitely the ultimate key to all of it.

I thought this 3rd Thursday video was a good topic to go into. There are a bunch of other website for artist to sell stuff, to show and to get people to notice what we create. We are competing to get attention in the sea of eyes. I recommend this to everyone, you don't even have to take notes. Just listen to listen to Jake Parker on some fun and creative advice.

Jake Parker really goes in depth on the BEHIND THE SCENES on spreading your art far a wide. It's really not enough to just post and hope people see your art. If you're serious about getting recognition, you have to do way more then that.

Jake runs through his approach to using social media, and it is so incredibly packed with useful information that you'll definitely want to take notes for. Jake starts with the question, "why?" before diving into the how which I know that I've skipped in the past. I can't recommend this enough.

I wouldn't really call this a course or a class, as it was much more an informative session of valuable information about several social media platforms. I learned some new things about platform-specific tactics which I think will be very valuable in getting that 10k followers. But I wish there had been a more in-depth guide about how to actually get there. I know having a plan is important, but how exactly do you plan your content? Is it try-and-learn or are there more specific studied tactics to that? Jake covered some platform-specific tactics with general rules, which seem quite handy. But some assignments or a simple workbook to get you started is something I feel is still missing from this course. Overall I'm happy that I took the time and invested the subscripion money to watch the session. I'm hoping there will be some updates for this course in the future.

This is one of the hardest parts of being a professional artist and this course just made it so much easier to navigate social media. I have actually been a fan of Jake's since the Agent44 stuff and seeing what he has accomplished with what he shared here makes it all that much more approachable - and it was fun to hear the structure behind all of it! One of the most important parts of this was how you figure out how to present yourself. I will definitely be listening to this several times! Thank you for an excellent course!
