Welcome to the Making It Podcourse!
It’s back! Those of you who are long-time listeners to the show may remember the original Making It Podcourse I ran in July 2018.
Well, I’ve re-organised the lessons, and am bringing this free course to you again in September 2019 – but this time, in weekly chunks.
Each episode will be approximately an hour long, packed full of lessons.
Today is the third week of the course, and in it, I talk about all things marketing.
What exactly IS marketing? Why does it matter? What is your Brand Story and how should you tell it? What is visual marketing? What is SEO and why does it matter? I’ll also discuss how to use social media, a mailing list, and more.
In September I’ll be releasing an episode once per week, via the Create & Thrive Podcast – on the topics of mindset, money, marketing, and business management.
I’ve created this FREE course specifically for makers – those who create handmade goods to sell.
To create this course, I’ve drawn on my 10 years of experience running my own successful handmade business, coupled with over 6 years of teaching other makers about handmade business right here at Create & Thrive.
I wanted to create something that was actionable and practical for all makers, no matter what stage of business you are at: and that would allow you to dig deep into 4 key aspects of the crafty biz journey.
I hope it helps your handmade business to thrive!
If you want to take your learning to the next level, the course conversation is happening daily over in my private membership community for makers – the Thriver Circle.
You can find out more about the oodles of benefits of membership right here. Membership will open again in late October, 2019.
