Business Tips and Resources

for Artists and Designers

Back in 2012, I started an art blog…

At the beginning of my journey in business I found that there was no support system in place where people could come together and celebrate their creativity so I decided to create something to help others on this crazy adventure. I began by setting up an art blog, with the aim of supporting creatives and sharing their work.

I built and grew the A Place for Creation creative community and eventually turned the site into a membership community which had around 500 members – My intention here was to make it into a platform where creatives could support each other. I also launched the promo hashtag (#bigartboost) that has been kicking it on Twitter since January 2014. However, I decided to call it a day on APFC after 5 years as I was getting busier with client work, I was exhausted and my heart just wasn’t in it anymore so I decided to create a new concept that would work for me.

My clients were almost always small creative business owners who were predominantly artists or designers running online shops selling their designs but as I have grown, my client base has shifted so this page serves as sort of an archive for all of the business tips and resources for artists and designers created during the APFC era. They have been slightly adapted to align with my business as it is now.

Business Tips and Resources for Artists and Designers

As a small creative business owner myself, I know how hard it is to get started selling your designs so I decided to create a discounted service for Artists & Designers to help them create an online presence for their creativity.

A social media planner that actually works

Need to get your content organised and want to stop feeling like creating content is a massive pain in the behind?

It’s easy to get stuck in a content creation don’t-have-the-time / brain capacity loop when it comes to staying consistent on social media.

So, I created a Social Media Planner to get organised, inspired and on the ball.

  • Create a Content Calendar
  • Brainstorm Post Ideas and Figure out your Content Pillars
  • Plan out Reels/TikToks – Including music
  • Plan out annual content – Such as international days
  • Repurpose old content – Across platforms without the faff
  • Keep track of links
  • Plan out content for launches
  • Stay consistent across platforms
  • Plus, you’ll always know exactly where at (and you’ll actually stay on track)
