March 5, 2023 – Upcoming Digital Marketing Workshop – From AI to Zip Code
On March 15, 2023, Artist Dynamix Founder, Fungai Tichawangana, will be conducting a workshop, organized by the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, themed “From AI to Zip Code – Digital Marketing Shortcuts that are Working in 2023”
It is easy for businesses to get overwhelmed with all the tasks that they need to carry out to maintain an online presence, let alone stay ahead of the competition.
This workshop is part of a series being run by the Amherst Area Chamber. The first workshop was on branding and took place last week. It was hosted by Talyn Rahman-Figueroa of Boss Diplomat.
In this edition of the series, we will look at tools and strategies that help entrepreneurs and business owners cut out the noise and focus on the most important parts of a digital marketing campaign.
We will look at:
- The simple things that move the online visibility needle, but which most businesses are not doing.
- How AI tools can help you understand your target market, generate winning content, and monitor what the competition is doing.
- Why businesses need to spend more time focussing on local visibility and how they can win in this game
- New tools like Apple Business Connect and Search Box Optimization
See you there!
Online and in-person at The Homewood Suites by Hilton, Hadley.
This workshop is sponsored by Greenfield Cooperative Bank.

About the Instructor
Hi, my name is Fungai. For close to 20 years now, I have been developing websites and digital media solutions. I have done work with banks, transport companies, membership organizations, and other enterprises.
I have also done extensive work with artists and other creatives in various capacities.
Over and over, I have seen how creatives struggle with the business and visibility side of their hustle. Becoming proficient at your artistic skill alone is a lifetime commitment. When you throw in all the other things you need to learn to create an actual enterprise, it becomes really challenging.
As an entrepreneur, I have seen how startups and small businesses struggle with showing up strong online and harnessing the power of digital media.
I started Artist Dynamix to help solve these challenges; to help creative entrepreneurs and institutions of arts & culture solve the challenges of visibility, branding, connection, and growth, and to find ways, while doing that, to create sparks of magic between business and the arts.

June 29, 2022 – Making a difference with FridayAction.org
Two years ago, I presented a workshop on online marketing. It was one of my first gigs here in Western Massachusetts and I was nervous because no one knew me. Would they hear what I had to say or be wondering who is this dude? Is he legit? Etc.
Fast forward to a few months ago, when someone I had never heard from before sent me an email asking if I could help them with a new website for a group they were involved with. We booked a call and spoke about their needs for the project.
I asked them how they had found out about Artist Dynamix and they said, “Oh, you gave that workshop…”
Today, the website that was borne out of that discussion (and many others that followed), FridayAction.org, went live.
April 12, 2022 – Hello Artist Dynamix v2.0
Just over four weeks ago I brought down the Artist Dynamix website because even though it had just been up for a few months it felt really old. I didn’t think it represented the business well at all or the sort of energy we are trying to share.
I thought it would take one week to get the new site done. It took four.
Today, it went up. The fact that you’re able to read this means that it’s running and we haven’t taken it down again ;-).

March 1, 2022 – A website for Ipikai
We just finished a pro bono project for Zimbabwe Poets Society. It’s a website for new poetry journal called Ipikai. It’s been really inspiring working on this project as we get to give back to a community that has been a key part of the evolution of Artist Dynamix. Check it out.
