Marketing for Creatives: The eBook

 

Being a creative often means you need to wear many different hats on different days, from being the creator of your work, to its sole salesman, PR agent, resident branding expert, social media guru, delivery person, even a bookkeeper.

The internet has made huge changes to the way people absorb and buy creative work. Everything from the way we listen to music to the way we watch movies has changed dramatically in the last few years. Gaining an online profile these days is paramount if you want to get noticed.

Never before have you had such great potential to showcase your work to millions of people, but never before has the competition been so daunting

Over the last 15 years we’ve worked with creatives in all manner of different fields from visual artists, musicians, graphic designers, art & music festivals, architects, interior designers, landscape gardeners even museum educators so we’ve heard the issues first hand.

That’s why we’ve written the Internet Marketing Guide for Creatives. It’s a common sense approach with tips & tricks to grow your audience without having to invest a cent (apart from your own time).

 

Visual art

There’s a huge online audience with an insatiable appetite for visual art, but there’s also a massive online community of artists and companies competing for their attention.

If you want to know why you should create an online profile, how to launch successful email marketing campaigns and where to find the best resources on the net, this handy guide has plenty of tips to get you started.

You’ll find out how to create an online profile, build a loyal following and access resources to help grow your presence online.

It’s packed with tips and tricks to help you build the online presence your music deserves.

About Rob Jennings

When he found himself embroiled in a conversation with someone talking about their ‘customer-centric core competencies’ he realised it was time to create a Web Design Agency that was less about self promoting buzz-words and more about people and giving them the tools to understand the web.

The idea behind We Push Buttons was to create an environment where business owners can learn about building their organisation, whether it be with an outstanding website, SEO or any other marketing ideas. Coming from the art industry and online retail background he knows first hand the needs of growing a business in a tough environment.
