Being a small business owner, blogger or creative entrepreneur can be tough. You’re alone. A lot. Investing in a creative workshop can not only help you sharpen your skillset faster but introduce you to more people in your network, too, which is why we’re hosting a creative workshop this year! We’ve started hosting workshops and events this year, but we’re definitely most excited for our November & December creative workshops!
Grow your business or blog faster
While there are tons of tools out there, exploring them on your own is time-consuming and inefficient. Plus, you can teach yourself; however, executing is still trial and error. By signing up for a workshop, you can learn the best practices for the topics you need to master. I personally attended The Bloom Workshop, and it was unbelievably helpful in propelling Girl Meets Party forward.
Make new friends
Have you heard the phrase, ‘it’s all who you know’ before? It’s true. Networking is one of the key components to success. Attending a workshop with other like-minded individuals and a teacher you admire is a great way to network. You’ll also build out your go-tos for projects. For example, I made a handful of blogging and photographer friends at The Bloom Workshop. They’re frequently my go-tos for events in the city.
Making new friends also opens the door to potential collaborations. You can increase your following by partnering with new friends and cross-pollinating followers. It’s a great way to drive exposure of your business and awareness of the content you’ve created. Plus, it’s more fun to work together!
Get help where you need it most
A creative workshop can fill the gaps in your current plan. If you’re a creative entrepreneur like us, it constantly feels like there’s a teeny hole in the boat you’re trying to plug. There are only so many hours in the day and only so much you can do (especially if it’s your side hustle!). A creative workshop can sometimes not only highlight that outage (as your planning) but help fill it, too!
When you know you’re ready for a creative workshop
It’s no secret – creative workshops are an investment. When you’re just starting out, it’s tough to know when to invest. It’s something I struggled with personally when I first started Girl Meets Party. Everything is an investment. How do you start a business without going broke? To me, it’s all about the value. Does it save you time or money in the long run? Plus, how quickly do you need to save that time or money?
Starting your own blog or business requires sacrifice. You need to be prepared to sacrifice your time or your money. If you can sacrifice your time, learn things yourself. However, if you’re serious about your goals and you want help getting there, a workshop is for you. Think about the 2-3 things you are currently struggling with. Does the workshop address that? If so, and you can afford it, a creative workshop is for you.
I’m sharing more details below, but I’m personally excited about our workshop because we’re sourcing questions directly from attendees. We’ll take up to 3 questions to answer per attendee so everyone can get what they need.
The Details for the Girl Meets Party Creative Workshop
Our creative workshop is designed for people in all different places on their journey. At only $150 per ticket, it’s a great deal. We’ll spend 3 hours together over the course of a weekday night so it’s perfect if you’re working full-time. All of our dates are available on calendly and seats are first come, first serve. We’ll start with the basics but dig into each topic to give precise strategies on how to grow an develop. Personally, my favorite part is that we’re crowdsourcing 1-3 questions from each participant and we promise to answer those specifically. So, attendees are guaranteed to get what they need to succeed.
Suree & Paola’s favorite part is that we’re giving away so many tangible tools to use! The value of the tools alone is worth more than $150, but ’tis the season to give so we’re doing it! For each section, there’s a tangible giveaway for attendees to use to practice their learnings.
- Our editorial calendar will help people properly plan their content to make them more efficient and thoughtful (valued at $25)
- Our 10+ stock images will be the filler you need when you’re low on new content. They’ll close the gap on your grid (valued at $100)
- Our analytics tracker makes it easy to keep an eye on the numbers and pinpoint where opportunities for growth are (valued at $25)
- Our business start-up guide simplifies the legal and administrative work behind setting up your business (which is the least fun part of work in my opinion!) (valued at $50)
- Our sample brand collaborations email partnered with the media kit will give you exactly what you need to kickstart your collaborations (valued at $75)
That’s $275 in just giveaways – not even the content from the workshop! Still debating if the workshop is for you? Send me an email and let’s chat it through. I’ll be honest and help you decide if now is the right time for you and your business or blog. What’s most important to us is building a strong, happy community. However, we can make that happen, we’re in. I hope you’ll join us.
