Event description

Description

Presented by Arts Northern Rivers and Screenworks

Proudly supported by Creative Plus Business and Business Connect

Marketing is one of the most despised and least understood aspects of running a creative business and being an arts entrepreneur. This fun and practical workshop explores the mystery behind the marketing magic: devising strategy, making measurements and meeting goals. We’ll also examine some of the key elements necessary for a successful marketing campaign, including the use of websites, social media and word of mouth.

During this presentation you’ll learn:

  • Seven foolproof steps to marketing success for creatives
  • The importance of understanding your clients and customers;
  • How to love and learn from your competitors;
  • Understanding the truth about "luck" and "word of mouth" marketing;
  • Social strategy and the single most important thing about your website.

These Marketing Strategy tips are tailored specifically to creative people who are (or want to be) self-employed, and the tips are relevant no matter what your profession – filmmakers, writers, designers, visual artists, performers – all can benefit from a quick introduction or refresher to the basics of creative business.

What do I get?

All participants of this workshop also receive:

  • Printed materials to help in class;
  • Lifetime access to a dedicated Marketing Strategy dropbox folder full of additional resources and help;
  • Access to a webpage full of links and resources to help them get ahead in their creative business.

The workshop is relaxed and informal, you can ask all the questions you’ve never been able to ask before, and participants will also be given ample opportunity to network and get to know each other.

You also get free advice!

All NSW participants are entitled to 4 x 1 hour CHAT sessions, with a creative industries business advisor, 100% subsidised by Business Connect and therefore at no cost to you (no, there’s no catch!).

Who should enrol?

This workshop is ideal for recent graduates, freelancers and anyone struggling with the business aspects of their creativity. It's also relevant no matter what your profession – filmmakers, writers, designers, visual artists, musicians, composers, dancers, performers – everyone can benefit from a quick introduction or refresher to the basics of business.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

This event is open to all ages – but be warned, Monica is a fan of ‘colourful’ language!

Do you offer concessions?

No. Our prices are set due to our relationship with NSW Department of Industry and Business Connect - remember, for that price you also get 4 hours of additional business advice! However, feel free to get in touch if you’re very strapped for cash and we’ll see what we can do.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

You can give your ticket to someone else to use, but there will be no refunds if you can't attend. Let us know in advance if you can’t attend and we’ll try and pop you in another workshop. There is a refund policy up to 1 day before the workshop commences.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
