How to stay in control of your creative business by Curly Carrot

Stay in control of your creative business – outsource marketing

Did you set up your business because you love to create? The reality is that there is so much more to running a business than crafting your jewellery, creating your ceramics or taking your photographs. There’s a lot of boring stuff that you end up putting off because it’s not what you want to do or where your skills lie. Bookkeeping, tax returns, website building, sales, social media, email management, marketing campaigns… It’s overwhelming and exhausting to be a creative business owner and keep a hundred different balls juggling at the same time.  The day-to-day can bog you down. The danger is you then lose focus on your purpose. Don’t fall into the trap of believing it’s too hard and too complicated to be a successful creative business owner. If you’re caught in the eye of the storm then step back from the firefighting. Gain some perspective on achieving your business goals and enlist others to help.


Outsourcing tasks – the key to creative business success!

The biggest investment you can make in your business is your time. You can’t be good at every aspect of your business. Even if you are you won’t have time to it do it all and have any kind of meaningful work/life balance. Something always has to give. Prioritise and focus on the parts of your business you are good at and enjoy. Outsourcing tasks could be the answer to business success. Of course there is the question of money. By spending money wisely on outsourcing marketing means you will make money. You will have more time to devote to actually creating your product or service.  That is why you set up your business in the first place!
