Create a Marketing Plan for a Small Creative Businesses
In our expert-led workshop, Create a Marketing Plan for a Small Creative Businesses, we'll help you take all the stress away from marketing your indie brand - so that you can spend more time doing the things you love.
Do any of these sound like you?
You open Instagram and think "ah cr*p, I haven't posted in ages"
You're seeing success on social media, but that's not translating into sickenin' dolla
You regularly give yourself a kick up the bum and get organised with your marketing, only to fall into immediately back into bad habits
You're constantly creating content on the fly because you've failed to plan for the next big selling season
You're in a total marketing rut
You never had any idea what you were doing, and now you need a slice of cake and a friendly face to tell you everything will be ok.
Everything will be ok bbz, I got you.
We'll look at the marketing channels you use for your business - your website, social media channels, email marketing, real-life events, shows and selling platforms like Etsy - and help you create a plan to make sure you're saying the right thing, to the right person, on the right platform.
In this 3-hour relaxed session, we'll cover:
An introduction to content marketing
Marketing in campaigns
Developing your core brand messaging
A break to grab some refreshments
Creating a 12-month content plan
What you'll get out of the Studio Cotton workshop
Create a Marketing Plan for a Small Creative Businesses is a practical workshop. As well as discussing why and how to manage marketing for an indie brand, we're also going to work together and create your new content marketing plan - so that you can leave Studio Cotton and immediately start benefitting from a more organised and effective approach to communications.
And the end of the workshop, you should feel more comfortable understanding how to use effective marketing content to benefit your business, have a clear vision for how each channel will help grow your business and have a couple of worksheets plus a simple wall planner to take home.

Studio Cotton is located in the centre of Bristol and served by most public transport routes. Parking on the other hand is a little trickier. There is limited Pay & Display parking available.
The closest multi-story car parks are Queen Charlotte Street, Nelson Street and The Galleries Shopping Centre, at the time of writing The Galleries Shopping Centre offers affordable parking after 5pm Monday to Saturday and all-day on Sundays - but do check this before you make your journey.
