In 2014, Nadia was guest speaker at our first Creative In store workshop. She summed up our creative day with such wise words.
At the start of 2015 I was in need of some oomph, some fresh eyes and ears on my plans for 2015 and a good old chat about what was going well and what wasn’t! I booked a session with Nadia and headed to Durbs! A child free day out of the office… such a treat for me! My music playing in the car instead of the Beatrix potter story CD, no rushing to collect Jonah from school and a handbag free from juice bottles and little boy pants!
Nadia is always poised, professional and so knowledgeable in her field. Every question gets answered with depth, thought and comes with a list of sites to visit that illustrate her points and ideas. I came away with a notebook full of scribbles and have since typed lists and spreadsheets with all my to dos!
I’m not going to share all that we covered, but here are a few things that stuck with me…
1// Use social media with reason. Every post ask yourself ‘What am I trying to achieve by posting this?’ More likes? More clicks? Generate sales? Drive traffic to another form of social media? Some spontaneity is good, but plan and post with purpose.
2// Be an Instagram ace! Instagram is about pictures, it showcases your business and brand in pictures. So take beautiful pictures, use filters cleverly and Instagram only the best piccies.
3// If you are going to send monthly newsletters, make them stunning and concise or they are likely to be deleted! Look at your stats, if a newsletter is not generating interest, use this time on a more effective marketing tool.
If you are a creative business owner looking for some guidance, support and inspiration then you should definitely give Nadia a call!
