Some of my art – My photography
How are you doing? Its been a few days now since you have heard from me, but please don't feel neglected. You are still very much in my thoughts. At the moment I am focused on developing a social media marketing system that will be well suited for the average Caribbean business. I strongly believe that if we act soon we can use the internet and particularly the social media networks as a platform to grow our businesses by attracting customers from around the world. Lots more to come on that!
In a meantime though, for those of you in Barbados you can attend the NCF's annual symposium ‘Taking Your Art to Market’.
