I’m very excited to have been invited to host a Creative Masterclass in honour
of Creative Connections’ birthday next week on 16th August. Creative Connections is a brilliant social network for crafters and business people and it produces the famous online magazine Creative Crafting.
The subject of the chat masterclass is “Turning your hobby into a business”
and “Brand promotion techniques” – two of my favourite subjects to talk about, and my two main areas of expertise! I knew studying a masters brand promotion for all those years would pay off eventually!
I love to give other people new ideas and help out whenever I can, (I spend
most of my time helping other people with their businesses rather than working on my own!) so if I can put a few business and marketing ideas out there for others to pick up and use for their own creative businesses, all the better!
Although knowing me, I’ll probably just say “give me your URL, sit back with a cuppa and I’LL do it!” I find it hard not to get too involved – and I know that people simply want advice and to talk things through, not for me to take over completely! (something I am certainly guilty of with my little sisters’ jewellery business http://www.beccy-boo.co.uk and my big sisters website http://www.vw-vintage.co.uk – I can’t stop helping! arghh!)
The chat is on 16th August 2011 on Creative Connections in the chatroom between 1pm and 2pm – ooh the lunchtime slot, fingers crossed everyone will have made a cuppa, settled down with a snack and will be happily munching away while I try to help out with any of your creative business and marketing
If you’d like to join in with the chat on Tuesday 16th, please register on the website before then so that you don’t miss out on joining the masterclass! Plus feel free to get in touch before the chat with any specific questions that you’d like me to cover on the day so that I can make sure it’s discussed within the hour! Comment on this post or email me firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions/topics.
See you next Tuesday! Cassie x
