SBDC Webinar Series Focuses on Assisting Wyoming Artists

June 29, 2017

Wyoming artists may enjoy losing themselves in their creations, but it is important for them also to learn how to market and sell their work.

To assist them, a six-part Creative Content Camp webinar series, titled “Wyoming Artists, Crafters, Musicians: Promote Your Work Effectively Online,” and sponsored by the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC), runs each Wednesday, July 12-Aug. 16, from 2-3 p.m.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

“This course is aimed not only at ‘artists,’ but also will assist individual craftspeople, artisans, musicians, etc.,” says Cindy Unger, Wyoming SBDC business adviser.

Alyson Stanfield, owner of Art Biz Coach, will teach the program. She collects, educates about and curates art. In addition to her Art Biz Coach business, which was started in 2002, Stanfield has taught workshops and been a speaker at artist events in 27 states. She received her M.A. in art history. To learn more about Stanfield, visit www.artbizcoach.com/about/

Attendees will learn how to create compelling and consistent content using the tools -- from social media to newsletters and blogs -- they already have in place. Before the class begins, attendees will be expected to learn how to use each platform -- Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. -- they choose. Participants will come away with fully formed ideas for creating blogs, newsletter articles and social media posts.

The program is co-sponsored by the Wyoming SBDC, Wyoming Women’s Business Center and the U.S. SBA. Attendance is limited to the first 50 individuals. To register, go to www.wyomingsbdc.org.

Once registered, an optional orientation is available from Thursday, June 29, until the first class begins. The regular price for all six modules is $347 but, due to special funding from the U.S. SBA, the fee for these programs is only $47 for Wyoming business owners.

All classes will be delivered live via webinar, and also will be recorded for playback at a later time. Written transcripts will be provided for all lessons. Participants will have weekly challenges, and the ArtBizCoach.com team will send twice-weekly messages to keep enrollees focused.  

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least two weeks in advance. For more information, call Peggy Baker at (307) 382-0947. 

The Wyoming SBDC Network is a business advising group of the Wyoming SBDC, Procurement Technical Assistance Center, Market Research Center and SBIR/STTR Initiative. The network’s mission is to help Wyoming entrepreneurs succeed. Advising and most market research activities are free of charge to Wyoming residents.

The SBDC is funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. SBA. Additional support is provided by the Wyoming Business Council and UW.
