Find out the five top issues that all creative businesses face (a hint: set up, time management, money, marketing, and more!) and learn how to navigate your way around those challenges in one fun and interactive learning experience.
I Hate Networking! – Most people hate networking – and most people don’t know how to make the most of this amazing marketing opportunity. I Hate Networking! is a surprisingly fun event that combines the learning opportunity of a workshop with real-world practical application of a networking event.
Social Media for Creatives – This complex and challenging marketing tool is a must for creatives, but finding the balance between narcissism and neglect can be tricky. Social Media for Creatives covers the basics, including getting started, which platform to choose, posting the best content, and tricks to staying up to date.
What’s It Worth? – Working out what to charge for your creative work can be a nightmare. Where to start? What’s It Worth? covers the basics of finding out your price point, including working out your budgets, and then moves on to the psychology of pricing, understanding the marketplace, creating loss leaders and more.
