Growing your presence online and connecting with other passionate creatives has never been more important for a creative. We wanted to show you how you can do this using online workshops and masterclasses.

Below we’ve answered some questions you may have about webinars and if they are something that suits you well!

If you’re an industry expert in your creative field pivoting into online masterclasses, webinars, and workshops for the time of isolation is definitely something that would be important to try out. Firstly think about what could your topics “selling point” be. If you’re a portrait photographer maybe your expert retouching skills would be something that other photographers or starting out creatives would benefit from.

This is probably the most difficult question for any creative or even an event manager. You should definitely try out different approaches and see what works best for your audience. Offering a variety of custom offers is something that works pretty effectively. Always set out the minimum and an average number of attendees and see what would make you feel good about the price. You can test this out by using Instagram Polls or researching what other creatives charge. Having add-ons such as 1-on-1 session or something more personal.

Usually pushing it out on social media works pretty well. Use Eventbrite for tickets as it helps push out the event to other audiences. Link your event to Facebook events for further reach. And always have the link in your bio on social media channels. Wishu is a great place to market your event, reach out to our team and we would love to share the event across all of our platforms.

Use an excel sheet for the most basic management. If you use Eventbrite and Facebook events these platforms provide you with sheets that you can keep and use.

Having another revenue stream and your freelance business activities is great. There has been a paradigm shift in behaviors, especially in emotional acceptance of virtual video conferencing. This has opened a door for our new service. For example, being a creative who spends most time doing photoshoots, opening another service is something that will benefit you in the long run.

If you’re thinking of starting a webinar or would like any help on it please reach out to us and we would love to help you with this.
