Three tips for launching yourself.

Trois petites astuces pour se lancer.


The marketing calendar that I talk about is so important. As a super organized, behind-the-scenes part of the art job, it’s one of the least sexy parts of being a professional, but it can help free up your brain for creativity, which is the sexiest of the sexy!


Le calendrier de marketing dont je parle est très important. Cela fait partie du travail d’artiste qui est super-organisée et qui se passe dans les coulisses, donc ça donne l’impression que ce n’est pas très sexy. Ceci dit, un calendrier peut aider à libérer votre cerveau pour la créativité, et il n’y a rien de plus sexy que ça!

This photo is from when I presented my brother with the portrait I had made for him.

Cette photo documente le moment où j’ai donné à mon frère le portrait que j’avais fait de lui.

My sweetie helped me publish this blog post about making pants more colorful by taking a bunch of photos of me.

Mon chéri m’a aidé à publier cet article sur comment faire des pantalons plus colorés en prenant plein de photos de moi.

I record a lot of my process but I need to do more video again smile I’m probably everywhere but most active on facebook and instagram.

I’ve been planning week to week but I’m aiming for yearly, quarterly, and monthly plans for next year. Planning it out might not be that exciting but it makes content creation a lot easier.

As for learning the platforms, I’ve been doing that actively for over 6 years

I often do the #tbt with a photo on instagram

@Sarah: I dragged my feet about it for years, but now I don’t think I could go back!

Thanks Gwenn, this is really interesting and helpful, I often find myself putting off posting as I leave it to the evening, then get tired and can’t be bothered, having a planner would definitely help. I can’t imagine making videos but might try it one day.

@Chrissie: There’s some evidence to say that posting in the evening is actually more effective. I’ve read that 6 to 10 PM New York time is actually the highest traffic time, so you may be onto something by saving it for later. smile For my brain it works better to get at least on bit of promotion out in the morning and then not think of it though. Bon courage!
