GOLD COAST WORKSHOPS

- SATURDAY 10TH AUGUST, 2019 -

 

workshop: LAUNCH YOUR CREATIVE BUSINESS LIKE A BOSS 

9am to 11am | The Craft Parlour, Miami, Gold Coast

Are you thinking about leaving your day job to pursue your creative business full time? Have you already left your job and need some tips to get more clients and customers? Do you already have a thriving business but are looking for inspiration and motivation to keep working at it? If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

During this workshop I will teach you how to launch your own small creative business over six detailed modules, and share tips and tricks as to how you can keep up the momentum after you launch. For more details on each

Module 1: Branding

First impressions last, so the branding for your new small business has to stand out. Thankfully you don’t need a lot of money to do this. In this first module, we’ll look at branding and how you can design a logo, select your brand colours, create your brand identity depending on your budget. I’ll also reveal unique ways you can share your brand story and stay on track with your brand values as your business grows. 

Module 2: Money

Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to managing the money in your business. It’s time to tackle the money side head on and with confidence. In this module we will take a look at money and how you can ensure you’re budgeting and tracking cash flow with the purpose of growing your business, as well as pricing your products and services properly. 

Module 3: Marketing

Marketing never stops. In this module I discuss all things marketing. It’s about creating simple yet consistent content, and cross promoting that content on your various marketing channels. We’ll dive deep into how to plan content and market your new business, with a strong focus on how social media, newsletters and blog content can generate more customers and clients for your business. 

Module 4: Customer Experience

Your customers can make or break your business, so I am going to share the tools you need to ensure they are having a seamless experience. I’ll also share my tips and advice for ensuring your product and website photography is both strategic and of a high quality. We’ll also look at packaging, the unboxing experience and your website usability. It’s important your customer experience is a true reflection of your brand values, and this is where we show you how to keep, and maintain, loyal customers.

Module 5: Launch Tools

Launching a new business is so exciting! But what many creatives fail to consider is that the pre-launch phase can take months and months of planning. In this module, we move to the pointy end of launching your creative business and show you how you can create a launch timeline, a launch strategy as well as content that see’s you through all the phases of launching - pre-launch, launch and post-launch. 

Module 6: Ongoing

You’ve launched, you’re selling products and services, you are creating consistent marketing content – what next? In this module I will take a look at the most important aspect of launching, the months after following your bug launch. I will show you ways you can keep the momentum going. This includes sharing your social proof, organising collaborations with likeminded brands and influencers, and working with business coaches and mentors, and upskilling. Just because you have launched your business, doesn’t mean you can take a break. The real work comes into play after you launch and it never stops!

workshop: instagram FOR CREATIVE BUSINESSES

11.30am to 1.30pm | The Craft Parlour, Miami, Gold Coast

Instagram has shaped the way businesses communicate. We can now instantly share our photography, products, services and blogs with likeminded people all around the world – without paying a cent. We can now attract a global community who will buy our products and services, and who live and breathe everything we do. But there is no point being on Instagram if you don’t know how to use it properly to grow your small creative business.

As someone who has grown an Instagram community to over 55,000 engaged people, I am excited to show you how in this practical, hands on workshop designed specifically for small creative business owners. During this workshop I will teach small creative business owners how to better use Instagram over 11 detailed modules.

Module 1: Why you need to create a community

Anyone can create an account on Instagram, but the real success lies in creating a community. In this module I’ll explain why you need to create a community of customers. It won’t be what you think! 

Module2: How to create an engaged community

It doesn’t matter what stage you’re at with Instagram. Why? Because it’s never too late to put some strategy behind your posts. In this module we’ll look at your brand story, knowing your purpose, tips and tricks for finding out who your community is, choosing your best approach, creating content pillars, and lots more. 

Module 3: How to take and edit high quality imagery

Today the overall look of your feed is just as important then the individual posts you share. And your photography is one of the most important aspects of growing a business and selling products and services on Instagram. But you don’t need to spend a fortune to take high quality photos. In this module, I share all my tips and tricks for taking beautiful, high quality photos and how customers perceive the quality of your brand through photography on Instagram. We’ll also look at the cameras I use, why you should never stop practising, how to create original imagery, sticking to a colour theme, how to edit your photos using the exact tools I use, and how to analyse your content. 

Module 4: How to write better captions

It’s not enough to create beautiful and unique imagery without great captions. It’s something that a lot of businesses and brands fail to consider; but creating catchy yet relevant captions is a really powerful way to attract an engaged community. Whilst coming up with good captions can be really hard, I’ll show you the methods I use to ensure people read what you have to say. And because a good caption could be one of the keys to have your posts seen by more people, learning to write good captions has never been more important – in this module, I’ll show you how. 

Module 5: A few quick tips about hashtags

Hashtags won’t save your business, but they will help considerably. In this module, I will share nine tips about hashtags that you can put into action straight away. 

Module 6: How to grow your community

This is a subject discussed a lot, yet I like to think about growing your community a little differently than most. In this module, I’ll share some strategies you can put into practice that will help grow your Instagram community, but also take people off Instagram and direct them to your other places in your online ecosystem, including your website, blog and newsletters. I’ll also share tips around working with Influencers, how to engage strategically and how to use Insights to grow your community. 

Module 7: How to create effective Stories and Highlights

You won’t be surprised to learn that more and more people are looking at Stories before they are scrolling down their feed these days. In this module, I’ll share some tips and advice as to how you can make your Stories and Highlights more engaging. I’ll also share why it’s important to use Stories as a strategy to get people to visit your Instagram content, and website.

Module 8: What you need to know about algorithms, insights and engagement

The Instagram algorithm is a constant guessing game. It’s always changing, it’s hard to understand, it’s difficult to keep up with and it’s overall, very annoying. It’s no secret, we all hate it. But the thing is, if you want to get ahead on Instagram, you need to work with it, not against it. And I’ll show you how. All you need to do is understand the factors that influence it. 

Module 9: Optimising your Instagram profile

You may not know it, but your Instagram profile is becoming just as important as the homepage on your website. And when 60% of Instagram users seek out and discover new products on Instagram (that’s 600 million people) you can’t afford to leave your bio as an afterthought. In this module, I’ll show you how to optimise your Instagram profile and share examples as well.  

Module 10: Instagram features coming this year

Instagram likes to keep us on our toes, so it’s important you stay on top of the new features being announced. In this module I’ll share five big changes and features that are being trialled and will come into effect in the next 12 months. So they say…

Module 11: How to create a great workflow

Instagram can waste a lot of time. It can also really affect your mental health; trust me, I’ve been there done that. In this module, I will share my own personal experiences with Instagram. I will show you the very methods I use that will help you streamline your process, create an effective workflow and ensure you don’t get weighed down by the negative impact Instagram can have on your mental health.
