Marketing Confidence

For Creatives 

Attract clients you love and work that inspires you with confidence and ease. 

Are you confident with your creativity but struggling with your marketing?

If you are a photographer, videographer, designer, copywriter, or other service based creative freelancer or solopreneur and….

 

  •  you have tried the ‘spray and pray’ marketing method and feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and disappointed 
  •  you stumble over your words or don’t know what to post, blog about, or write
  •  you want to feel confident when talking about your value and your prices
  •  you need new marketing strategies to navigate this new economy
  •  you’ve taken the free webinars and know you need real training and personalized support 

Then you have come to the right place.

Marketing Confidence for Creatives is NOT for you if you…

  • are still trying to figure out and focus your ideas and passions
  • need immediate cash flow instead of long-term, sustainable results
  • expect to get things right the first time instead of through consistent practice and revisions
  • are too busy to work ON your business for 3 to 6 hours a week
  • already have all the tools and systems you need to help your business thrive

We can still help, it’s worth talking with us.

“I turned a really challenging situation into a win/learning experience by taking things less personally so that I’m able to make objective marketing decisions.”

At Business of Creativity we do online programs a little differently:

Our programs are:

  •  Always live so we can really connect and serve you while you learn
  •  Recorded so you can go review as much and whenever you want to
  •  Multi-layered with group AND one on one support while you apply the strategies and lessons in your business
  •  Specifically designed to help creatives like you focus on what matters most so you can master the business of creativity
  •  Comprehensive with resources, workbooks, and access to the Slack community for additional support and connection

And there are things we Don’t or Won’t do.

  • Pre-recorded, same old same old ‘online courses’ that talk at you without really helping (all of our training is done LIVE and is interactive)
  • Quick fixes or magic formulas (success takes time and effort – if it was easy you would already be doing it)
  • Done for you solutions while you sit back and coast (this is YOUR business, YOUR life, you are the key to creating want you want)
  • One and done training that abandons you before you implement (taking action takes something, usually it takes structure and support)

We’ve helped many creatives just like you, take one small action…
and another and another…to design, build, and grow their businesses with confidence.

Apply for Pre-enrollment Call

Marketing Confidence For Creatives is only accessible by filling out some information and speaking to an advisor first.

We are committed to meeting you where you are in your creative journey.

And unlike other platforms that care more about your credit card than your success, we won’t let you pay for something that isn’t what you need.

The pre-enrollment process helps us know that you are ready for this level of work. And to better match you with the training, resources, and support you actually need right now.

It also helps us curate the group. So that you can trust that everyone else is at a similar level and you are with the right people to go on this journey with.

Why Business of Creativity?

We’ve helped many creatives, just like you, take one small action and another and another to design, build, and grow their businesses with confidence.

Once you have a framework to focus your time, energy, assets, and passions, you need to do the work to attract the clients you love and create the lifestyle you want.

The Marketing Confidence live online program is led by Aura McKay, our founder, the creator of The D.A.M.N. Plan, and international award winning photographer. Aura has almost 2 decades of experience as a successful creative entrepreneur and as a business and creative skills instructor at various institutes.

While she does have a background and education in financial management and marketing communications, it is her years of personal development and studying of transformational modalities that help make this so much more than sitting in a chair listening to someone talk.

Aura brings mindset to the conversation of business to truly support freelancers and solopreneurs with one of the biggest and most important blocks to success – themselves.
