Author and speaker Cindy Watson is talking tips and tricks of social media at the next Muskoka Authors Association (MAA) meeting on April 18, discussing how successful writers and artists use social media to build an audience and market their brand and products.
Watson is the founder and president of the MAA as well as a speaker, author, consultant and attorney. Watson will teach about using platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube to gain visibility, grow and engage an audience, and sell your brand and product. She will also explore more creative options in her talk, such as using Alexa and the benefits of options like creating online funnels and CRM systems. The meeting will take place at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Bracebridge with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starting at 7. The event is free for members and costs $20 for non-members.
Watson is the founder of Women On Purpose, a speaking and coaching service to empower women, as well as the founder and managing partner for Watson Labour Lawyers. She is an attorney and graduate of Osgoode Hall with a specialty in social justice.
She is also a trainer and speaker in the corporate world, “helping to build bridges between men and women in order to aid in productivity, communication and heal gender bias,” according to a statement from the MAA. Watson aims to break down barriers, secure pay equity and end discrimination.
Watson has published short stories in addition to two books, Unloved and Endangered Animals and Out of Darkness: The Jeff Healey Story. She is a recipient of the Golden Oak Forest of Reading award and is currently working on her next book, The Art of Feminine Negotiation: How to Get what you Want from the Boardroom to the Bedroom, expected to come out late 2019.
