If you want to…
- Change the way you market your creative business so it really works
- Start marketing your new, creative business in the right way
- Learn how to market your creative business without burning out
…I can help.
Creative businesses aren’t like other businesses.
People who run creative businesses are different.
You’ve got a business full of great ideas, you understand your customer and you want to stand out. You’re running the whole show (with maybe a little help) and your heart is in your work, not trying to come up with new marketing ideas on miniature budgets.
You might be a boutique owner, craftsperson, fashion designer, stylist, photographer or writer. You’ve chosen this creative path because you love it, and you’re determined to make a career of it.
You love your business, you love your customers, but you don’t love your marketing. You might be smashing Instagram, or designing incredible flyers … but in your heart you know something in your marketing is missing.
If this sounds familiar, take a look at my services.
Marketing doesn’t have to mean selling out.
Marketing can be sustainable. It can mean something different.
You don’t have to take part in quick-fix, reactive marketing tactics. You don’t have to jump on every marketing bandwagon because you think it might work. You don’t have to be on social media 24/7, even if your customers are.
You don’t have to be a slave to your marketing.
When your marketing is sustainable, it’s about selling well – not selling out.
I believe in integrity and longevity.
Integrity in your marketing is a commitment to the cause. It’s marketing which fulfils your business goals without manipulating your customer.
Longevity in your marketing is a commitment to the process. It’s marketing which is enjoyable to create and doesn’t burn you out.
Marketing services just for creative businesses.
To help you market your creative business in a sustainable way I offer two core services:
- Consultancy, to support you in coming up with successful marketing ideas
- Training, to support you in delivering successful marketing ideas
You can also hire me as a copywriter, if you’d like some help writing successful marketing materials.
Three reasons why I’m different from other marketing people.
#1. I really do believe marketing can be sustainable.
Integrity and longevity are guiding principles in my work and in my life. I started my own business because I felt marketing agencies didn’t always work with these principles in mind, and it made employees – and clients – unhappy.
#2. I want you to make me redundant.
My aim is to give you the skills and confidence to market your creative business successfully. My goal is that, eventually, you won’t need me – because you’ll have all the answers yourself.
#3. I am only ever honest.
Sincerity, straight-talk and support – that’s how I work. That’s how you know I won’t deliberately baffle you or convince you to do something that’s bad for you and your business.
