As we speak with creative freelancers, we hear that marketing is one of the biggest challenges in running your business. You don't have time. You don't have money to spend. You get buried with work and lose track of your marketing efforts.
So we've asked our colleague, Ilise, to create a series of focused DesignCasts to help you manage your marketing. The 3-part Freelancer Marketing Bootcamp Series begins next week.
It's all about helping you market your creative business in ways that are cost-effective, time-efficient and most of all, successful. Find out more about the series here.
Here's what you'll learn:
Thursday, March 11: Marketing-Smart Websites: How to Make Your Site Work Harder for You—learn how to make your site a "go-to" for your target market, get simple strategies for showing your work and find out a few copy tricks to make your site super appealing.
Tuesday, April 20: Beyond the Brochure: How to Create Effective Sales Materials—find out how to create smart, cost-effective marketing materials and learn how to use these tools to hook a prospect once they've said, "Show me more."
Thursday, May 13: E-mail & More: How to Attract Clients with Easy & Effective E-Marketing—there are many online marketing tools you COULD be using; find out which ones you SHOULD be using, and how to use them.
These LIVE DesignCasts are designed to be interactive, so you can pose your toughest marketing questions to Ilise. Register in advance, and you'll receive instructions on how to submit your own website or marketing materials directly to Ilise for possible review and critique during the DesignCasts.
Sessions are $49 each, or $99 for the entire series. Sign up for the series, and you'll get these bonus curriculum materials FREE:
