The Creative Business Accelerator
Wed 10 May 2017, 17:30 – 20:30 BST
Do you run a small creative business? Have you reached a ceiling where you are finding it difficult to grow beyond your current client base? Do you often struggle to differentiate yourself from the competition?
If so this event if for you!
I'm guessing you started your business because you wanted to do work you enjoy and create something meaningful? I'm also willing to guess that, while you have created some projects you are proud of, it's not as easy as you first imagined? There is a vast amount of information available around business and marketing, which can be overwhelming, to say the least. It's not uncommon to spend countless hours and waste thousands of pounds on marketing efforts that rarely seems to generate results.
If this is something you can relate to, then don't worry you are not alone. In fact, this is true for the majority of small businesses, especially in the creative industries. It can feel like you are in a constant battle to survive. The problem is that as creatives, we want to do fun creative things that we enjoy, but running a business often involves the opposite of that! It's so easy to get caught up in the admin and the boring tasks and suddenly you find yourself working in your business rather than on it. Doing things that you're not even that good at and don't really enjoy!
So what's the solution?
With more than half a decade of experience working with businesses in the creative industries, it's not the first time I have heard this story. I've spent the past few years creating systems and methods that have helped businesses go from undervalued and underpaid to oversubscribed and profitable. I now want to share this formula with as many creative business owners as possible.
What will the workshop cover exactly?
In the workshop, I will be sharing my tried and tested methods that have helped businesses just like yours to go from struggling to thriving in less than six months. Methods that I use with my current clients and that have a proven track record.
The workshop will include:
- The creative entrepreneur's struggle; why most creative businesses fail
- How to stand out in an oversaturated market by being more creative and less competitive
- How to become oversubscribed with clients you actually want to work with
- Doing work you love for the long term
What this workshop is not!
This is NOT a sales pitch!
It is not an upsell, nor is it an advert for my latest book or podcast.
I have been to a fair few workshops and seminars in my time and have often left feeling as though that few hours could have been better spent elsewhere. This is why I am going to make a fairly bold offer:
If you attend this event and feel you haven't received any value and that it was a waste of your time, I will give you a full refund, PLUS £50 in cash. I don't make offers like this lightly.
Don't just take my word for it!
