Affinity or Photoshop - Which Option is Best For You?
Course Title: Affinity or Photoshop – Which Option is Best for You?
Presented By: Dane Clement (Great Dane Graphics)
Level: Beginner/ Intermediate

For years Photoshop has been the go-to for creating full color, raster images that are perfect for dye-sublimation. However, there are other raster-based programs on the market. One such program is Affinity Photo. While it is a much more cost-effective option at a one-time cost of only $49, is it the better option for you? Both programs have very similar functionality, but there are some differences. In this seminar, Dane will provide side-by-side comparisons of both programs demonstrating some of the more commonly used features that he uses on a daily basis when creating full-color, raster layouts. Get some artwork pointers to start using in your artwork routine, while comparing both programs to see which might be the best solution for you to start creating full-color designs for your dye sublimation needs.

With practically the same functionality as Photoshop, this graphics program will allow you to achieve nearly the same results as Photoshop at a fraction of the cost.

Creating Artwork for Dye-Sublimation Using Photoshop
Course Title: Creating Artwork for Dye-Sublimation Using Photoshop
Presented By: Dane Clement (Great Dane Graphics)
Level: Beginner/ Intermediate

Dye-sublimated products can be seen everywhere - shirts, flags, mugs, you name it.

Full-color artwork, whether it’s a photo or an illustration, is ideal for this type of production process.

With Dane’s help he’ll show you exactly what you need to know to perform the tasks beneficial to creating designs specifically for the garment decoration industry. He’ll demonstrate some of his go to tips that he uses on a day-to-day basis for setting up, creating and optimizing artwork to get the best prints possible. By the end of the class, you’ll have all the essential tools you need to know in your back pocket to help you start creating layouts of your own.

The Facebook Trinity Marketing Approach
Course Title: The Facebook Trinity Marketing Approach
Presented By: Stacey Storino, Esq.
Level: All Levels

This is Stacey's three step approach that any entrepreneur, regardless of their age and tech-savviness, can leverage so that the Facebook algorithm suggests their organic content to others, even without paid ads. This approach alone, for example, scaled a business from barely profitable in 2016 to a seven-figure success approximately two years later and has worked for many of Stacey's students, even those in their fifties, sixties and seventies, all without paid advertisements, boosting posts, or expensive software. Once you take this class and know the trinity marketing approach, you'll understand what it takes to get business conversions organically on Facebook.

Level: All Levels

Entrepreneurs of any age working any business model can leverage Instagram for business conversions, but only if they understand Stacey's "sales funnel trick" that works in a variety of places, covering a variety of content types, anywhere on the platform.

This method will surprise both any entrepreneur and their ideal customer, both of whom are (or should be) on the platform.
