Artful Business Conference 3rd & 4th September

The Artful Business Conference

Today we have a guest post from Elle Roberts and Robyn Kyberd of Studio Exsto talking about their upcoming business summit, the Artful Business Conference. I attended last year and was blown away by the knowledge of the speakers and participants. 

Blogging is without doubt a great way to promote your skills, share your story, and meet ‘your people’ online. But many ask:

  • How can I integrate a blog into my existing web presence?
  • How can I use my blog for effective marketing and connection?
  • How can I monetize my blog?

All great questions which each have different answers depending on your business or industry. What we do know is, that behind any business – whether a bricks and mortar store, e-commerce website, or even blog – that the same creative business principles and requirements apply.

At this year’s 100% virtual Artful Business Conference there will be an array of seminars and master-classes directed to helping you turn your blog or small/creative business into something sustainable and spectacular.

The two-day online event is dedicated to the entrepreneur with business topics tailored specifically for designers, makers, crafters, bloggers and artists or anyone who is in business, or wishes to be in business, doing work that they love. Seminars and master-classes will cover everything from building and nurturing online communities, to online marketing, DIY visual marketing, harnessing the power of video, and managing different types of fear and motivation.

Often working primarily in the online space there is a strong desire to find your people. This interactive virtual event enables you to not only connect with the speakers but also the other attendees and build strong industry connections. Continue reading

I sure do.

It reminds me of the song ‘Sunshine and Lollipops’ sung by Lesley Gore.

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,

Everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together.

Have I got you wanting for a lollipop RIGHT NOW?

Well, that’s how building your subscriber list should be. It should be fun, easy and worth singing about. Continue reading
