New Workshop: How To Shout About Your Small Biz – A Social Media & PR Workshop for Creative Business Owners

I’m super-duper excited to announce that I’m going to be running a workshop at the gorgeous Stanley Road Store – an award-winning Artists Open House and now pop up shop, headed up by megababe Maxine Michaelides of Lost & Foundry fame.

The idea for the workshop, which aims to shake the fear, creative business owners and freelancers have about shouting about what they do, was hatched during a 1-2-1 session I held with Maxine over the summer.

After spending a day with Max, plotting her world domination, she asked if I’d like to run a bigger workshop, where biz owners could get together, learn tricks of the trade and leave feeling confident to crack on with their own PR, social media and web content. It was a big YES from me and now here we are, with just over a week to go!

So, what’s it about and what will you learn?

In this whistle-stop workshop, I’ll be teaching you how to:

  • Use social media effectively for your unique business.
  • Develop your tone to connect with potential customers, other creatives and influencers.
  • Authentically tell your story to bloggers and press.
  • Connect with publications who get YOU and your quirky products/ services.
  • Create a content plan for blogs, social media and PR.
  • In a nutshell; feel armed with the knowledge to plan your PR world domination (without feeling cringey!).

How To Shout About Your Small Biz – A Social Media & PR Workshop for Creative Business Owners takes place on Wednesday 1st November, 7pm-9pm at The Stanley Road Store Pop-Up Shop, 132 Preston Drove, Fiveways, Brighton.

Hope to see you there!

 

Personal Branding: One Girl Band Expertise Session – 4th October

I’m so excited to announce that I’m going to be sharing my ‘expert’ social media insights into authentic personal branding, alongside amazing personal branding photographer Becky Rui and Cat from Gatto Web who specialises in branding and web design, at the most dreamiest of venues, One Girl Band on Wednesday 4th October.

The Expertise Session aims to help small creative business owners, freelancers and bloggers to authentically attract new customers/ clients – without feeling like they’re not being true to themselves.

I’ll be chatting about why it’s important to show up and be yourself online (and not be another generic account), how to be true to you when it feels like everyone is churning out the same style posts, how to find YOUR ideal followers and connect with people who get you and, not forgetting, why you should combat that ‘pressure to post’ feeling.

Becky will be talking about the importance of photography and how you can use it to grow your business and share your message in a way that feels exciting to you.

While the fabulous Cat will be sharing her top advice into creating your brand’s look – including how to DIY yourself a professional website and creating a colour palette and branding guide.

There’s a few last minute tickets remaining (priced at just £20) so bag yourself one while you can! Hope to see you there!
