Event description

Description

In our expert-led workshop, Create a Marketing Plan for Small Creative Businesses, we'll help you take all the stress away from marketing your indie brand - so that you can spend more time doing the things you love.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You open Instagram and think "ah cr*p, I haven't posted in ages"

  • You're seeing success on social media, but that's not translating into sickenin' dolla

  • You regularly give yourself a kick up the bum and get organised with your marketing, only to fall into immediately back into bad habits

  • You're constantly creating content on the fly because you've failed to plan for the next big selling season

  • You're in a total marketing rut

  • You never had any idea what you were doing, and now you need a slice of cake and a friendly face to tell you everything will be ok.

Everything will be ok bbz, I got you.

We'll look at the marketing channels you use for your business - your website, social media channels, email marketing, real-life events, shows and selling platforms like Etsy - and help you create a plan to make sure you're saying the right thing, to the right person, on the right platform.

In this 3-hour relaxed session, we'll cover:

  • An introduction to content marketing

  • Marketing in campaigns

  • Developing your core brand messaging

  • A break to grab some refreshments

  • Seasonal themes

  • Creating a 12-month content plan

  • Q&A

This workshop will run from 6:30 - 9:30pm and includes dedicated Q&A time.

What you'll get out of this Studio Cotton workshop

Create a Marketing Plan for a Small Creative Businesses is a practical workshop. As well as discussing why and how to manage marketing for an indie brand, we're also going to work together and create your new content marketing plan - so that you can leave Studio Cotton and immediately start benefiting from a more organised and effective approach to communications.

At the end of the workshop, you should feel more comfortable understanding how to use effective marketing content to benefit your business, have a clear vision for how each channel will help grow your business and have a couple of worksheets plus a simple wall planner to take home.

Who's this workshop for?

This workshop has been developed for any freelance creative, maker, seller or small business owner. From artists and illustrators to jewellers, yoga teachers to florists and shopkeepers to anything outside or in between.

This 3 hour session, including a practical and Q&A, is suitable for business owners and marketing managers with no prior content marketing experience, or those looking for ways to be more effective and efficient with their marketing plans.

Workshop FAQs

Refreshments
You can enjoy a small selection of teas, coffee, cold drinks and cake during the workshop. If you have any dietary requirements, please get in touch before booking to make sure these can be accommodated.

About the venue
Studio Cotton is the home of a dedicated space for creative business workshops. This intimate studio seats up to 20, but we like to keep our workshops to a more intimate 5 - 12 to ensure each participant feels comfortable and able to share, ask and learn.

Our venue is a bit of a Bristol secret. Nestled away in the heart of the Old City, you can find our front door tucked away on Exchange Avenue, nextdoor to St Nicks Market, opposite Eatchu and above Trailfinders Travel Agents.

Accessibility
Studio Cotton is located on the third floor of a listed building, and unfortunately the building’s elevator travels to the second floor. For this reason, there is no step-free access available.

Transport
Studio Cotton is located in the centre of Bristol and served by most public transport routes. Parking on the other hand is a little trickier. There is limited Pay & Display parking available on Corn Street and St Nicholas Street.

The closest multi-story car parks are Queen Charlotte Street, Nelson Street and The Galleries Shopping Centre, at the time of writing The Galleries Shopping Centre offers affordable parking after 5pm Monday to Saturday and all-day on Sundays - but do check this before you make your journey.

Contacting the Host
If you have any questions about the workshop or venue, you can contact Studio Cotton by email using hello@studiocotton.co.uk. We aim to reply to your message within 2 working days.

Other events at Studio Cotton
We run expert-led, curated workshops which are repeated three times a year in a Spring, Summer and Autumn series. These are complemented with Walkthroughs to showcase how to use key apps mentioned in the workshops, such as MailChimp, Later and Eventbrite. There are also more casual meet ups like the Studio Cotton Clinics if you’d like a more relaxed, chit chat vibe.
