WOLLONGONG WORKSHOP: Marketing Strategy for Creatives

Sun 26 May 2019 12:13 pm to 12:13 pm

  • Free
  • The Lab - Wollongong City Council
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:
- the key elements of a successful marketing campaign
- the strategy behind your website
- how to stay on top of social media
- the myth of word of mouth… and much more!

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 website 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.

Who should enrol?
This workshop is ideal for freelancers, small creative businesses and arts organisations. It’s also relevant no matter what your profession – filmmakers, writers, designers, visual artists, musicians, composers, dancers, performers – everyone can benefit from a guide to marketing strategy.
