SELL MORE ONLINE – 6 week online course + accountability group

SELL MORE ONLINE – 6 week online course + accountability group – Fridays 30 April, 14 + 28 May and 11 June 10am – 1pm (UK time)

This online course is aimed at creatives who have got a website or Etsy shop and want to improve their website, get more visitors and ultimately more online sales, orders, commissions or bookings.

Session one focuses on making your website better and your branding more ‘you’, followed by getting more visitors to your website and driving traffic with key words, email marketing and social media plus more traditional marketing techniques. The 3rd workshop will focus on how to turn your visitors into actual buyers. The final session is a group website review and 5 participants can share their websites for an expert review with Anne-Marie Shepherd – The Design Trust’s Business Club & Social Media Manager.

This is an action-orientated course so be prepared to put in around 4 hours each week to improve your website and to get more online traffic, interest and sales.

This is a really practical course, especially for creatives who know that they need to improve their website, who are unsure about how to promote themselves, and who rely mostly on their website for sales and commissions. Especially now with less live craft fairs or trade shows around, and less orders from galleries and shops!

You can also upgrade to get private feedback and coaching on your website from Anne-Marie Shepherd, The Design Trust’s Business Club & Social Media Manager.

It’s likely that we will run this course again in September but if you want to get ready for Christmas with a bit of extra time then this Spring/Summer course might be better timing for you.

You can find all the details about this Sell More Online course here: https://www.tdtonlinebusinessschool.co.uk/courses/58/about

This 6-week course costs normally £149 but CGS members get £50 off and pay only £99 (incl. VAT) for this course or £189,- for the course + private coaching session with the promo code from admin@cgs.org.uk

There are only 20 discounted spaces for paid up CGS members so please book early and do not share this discount code. The group size is 55 creatives and there will be a total of 10 places for the coaching.

 

DESIGN TRUST – START TO SELL ONLINE – 6 week online course

We are really pleased be continuing our partnership with The Design Trust, the online business school for creative professionals.

START TO SELL ONLINE – 6 week online course + accountability group – Tuesdays 25 May, 8, 15 + 22 June, and 6 July 2021 10am – 1pm (UK time)

This online course has been especially created for creatives at any stage of their career who want to launch their first website or online shop within 6 – 8 weeks. It’s very much an action-taking programme with 3 core workshops that will help you step-by-step to plan your website and brand in detail and then to launch your website by early July.

This is a really hands-on 6 week course with accountability group, so you are expected to spend around 8 hours each week on your own website planning, writing, photographing and launching, with loads of practical homework suggestions to help you. You will also get access to our private online website where you will be able to access all the course materials, network with the other participants, and ask any questions that you might have about starting to sell online.

If you have tried to launch your own website for the last few years but have struggled, this action-orientated course will help you to make the right decisions about your first website and to take the right steps towards launching it before the summer.

This course is hosted by Patricia van den Akker, the Director of The Design Trust and an award-winning creative business adviser who has worked with 1,000s of creatives over the last 25 years.

It will be unlikely that we will be running this course again this year, so if you want to launch your website this year then do join us.

You can find all the details about Start to Sell Online course here: https://www.tdtonlinebusinessschool.co.uk/courses/59/about

This 6-week course costs normally £195,- but CGS members get £70 off and only pay £125 (incl. VAT) with the promo code from admin@cgs.org.uk to get this Start to Sell Online course at the special CGS rate.
