Use colors, shapes, even timing of your shares to stand out. This works best when you already have a unifying theme around what you share online.

Over the years I’ve crafted a delicious recipe for amplifying your good online

Roasted-Garlic-Macaroni-and-Cheese example for how to sell your art online course recipeIt works like one of those great recipes where you can play with the ingredients for the rest of your life as long as you get the proportions right on what matters most. There are probably a million ways to make mac and cheese, including gooey smoked gouda, and cheddary baked versions. Yet, you can create a new one every week if you want, because the basic recipe, the formula, works: noodles, gooey cheesy stuff to bind them, seasonings, and heat. The trick is in doing it WELL… 🙂
