A Different Look at Creativity Part III: Choosing The Marketing Ingredients

Welcome to Part 3! This rather short segment takes the separate needs of Creator,Makers and Producers and matches up with the  Social Media channels that will best help them accomplish their goals. In the next and final installment of this series we will take a look at how these tools can best be put to work to supplement and bolster your marketing strategy. Once again please note that for simplicity sake the overlap between each segment of the creative spectrum is not being considered here instead it is assumed that overlaps will occur in varying degrees and intensities.
