Starting Your Business

Just starting, like I am? These are great resources for creating a strong foundation.

Creating Your Website

As a small business owner, you need a website to showcase your work. Have no work to show yet? You want to at least reserve your domain name. I bought my website two years before I actually tried to monetize it so I could have my first and last name. Currently, I use Squarespace and free templates, but I look forward to use these classes to build my websites when I am ready!

Writing Great Content

In order to bring potential customers into your funnel, you need to draw them in with great content. Add value to their lives, and show them how you can help them succeed.

Social Media Management

In this day in age, marketing yourself on social media is a must for most audiences. You need to be where your audience hangs out.

Advertising and Marketing

Advertising and marketing are fun but tricky.

Design

Bad design will drive away potential customers, no matter how amazing your content is. If you are not a graphic designer by trade, you can at least teach yourself the fundamentals until you can hire a professional.

Email Marketing

Leads and sales are much easier if you have an email list of potential clients.

Putting Your Best Brand Forward

Your brand is what your audience thinks of you. Shape that perception so you can shape your own brand.
