NEW: San Francisco Social Media Workshop July 31st!

After last week’s Social Media Workshop in Brooklyn sold out, I got some very sweet requests for classes on the West Coast. My goal has always been to turn this into part of a larger online curriculum series (which will happen this fall!), but all of the sudden it dawned on me- I’m going to San Francisco next week for a work trip, so why not teach a class while I’m in town? Thankfully Makeshift has its home quarters in San Francisco, so Rena found a spot for us and I’m going to be taking the course to California! Because this space is a bit smaller the class will be limited again, but we’ll have just as much time and space to cover all the bases we do in Brooklyn. So if you’re in the SF area and want to come learn everything you need to know about social media to build a successful brand online, I hope you’ll join me next Thursday the 31st! See you at Makeshift! xo, grace

Here’s what students are saying about the course so far:

“I dropped everything and booked my ticket to NYC to take this workshop offered by the Design*Sponge team. My 2,000 mile journey was not in vain. I found the content of the workshop relevant to my needs as a blogger and learned so much from Grace’s firsthand experience. Grace provided helpful tips, their research on trends and their own real-world experience on staying relevant in the constantly evolving social media landscape. If you’re looking for finger-on-the-pulse information on how to leverage social media effectively, hop the subway to Brooklyn (or in my case a flight into LGA) and spend an evening with the Design*Sponge team.”-Suzanne Miller of La Porte Bleue

“Grace is refreshingly honest, pulling back the curtain of Oz to reveal the details of how she works, what she’s learned from nearly a decade of running a design site and where she sees content and social media trending in the future. As a brand marketer I’ve attended numerous social media seminars over the years, from the useful to the useless, and Grace’s was definitely worth the investment, helping to spark a slew of new marketing ideas.”-Ruth Gallogly
