#creativemelville x Soul Traders webinars
Soul Traders Amy Snoekstra and Bo Wong have produced a special three part webinar series for creative business owners discussing the ins and outs, the vagaries, the traps and the triumphs of running a solo freelance business and living a creative life. Over the three sessions, Amy and Bo explored topics creating your online presence: practical tools, tips and tricks; marketing and community building for creatives and creating engaging imagery and content for your social media.
