Getting your work out there
I've worked in Marketing in some form or another since I left college. It is in my DNA - my father was a brush salesman and then a seller on encyclopaedias, my brother was a marketing executive for a global company, as for me I've worked on everything from promoting an arts event, to sporting events (Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race back in the day), to doing £250k worth of sales per year for one of my training company clients and I've been working with them for 10 years.
I had a meltdown a couple of years ago which gave me time to reassess who I am and what I want. I'm loving my life with creatives now. I'm energised, having fun - really loving it. I may go back to corporate life - but I rather doubt that.
So, lets think about promotion and how I can help.
There are various things I can help with from marketing, promotional and social media planning and doing it, right down to scheduling.
For those without any budget (I've been there and I know what it's like) I'll be writing some hints and tips from a course I wrote called 'Marketing on a Shoestring' - check back in a couple of weeks as I plan to add some free resources to this page for you.
But if you do have a bit of dosh (all be it limited) then have a read through the rest of this page.
