GENERATE MORE LEADS
Market your creative business and generate more design leads.
You asked. We listened. Welcome to Business Bootcamp.
If you are happy with the quantity and quality of your leads, and you are ecstatic when the phone rings and you see your client’s number on the screen, this class isn’t for you. If you’re not ready to work hard, this class isn’t for you. If you’re not ready to specialize, utilize marketing tools, and create content, this class isn’t for you. But if you worry about where your next design job is coming from, if your inbox is empty and your phone isn’t ringing, keep reading.
We all graduate from design school with the mindset that as long as we produce great work, more work will come. Unfortunately, that’s far from the truth. Our goal with this class is to teach marketing for designers specifically. If you’re ready to up your game, start hustling, and produce consistent, quality leads, this multi-part video class is for you.
