Ep 14: Maximize Exposure After a Design Show or Festival
When you invest in doing a design festival, trade show or other event, being there in person is only part of it. If you're not posting on social media afterwards, you are missing out on a lot of the opportunity and potential exposure from doing it.
In this episode, creative business coach Charlene C Lam shares her top tips for how creative entrepreneurs can leverage their investment in a design show or design fair.
