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.

“There were many practical and executable marketing applications and methodology being discussed for your business’ growth and capturing sales through relationship building and using technology to your advantage. This course will not only help you in your business but the teachings are motivational and inspiring that you can carry in your daily lives.”

– Yohanes Q.

“I have been in business for about 6 years now and one of the things I have realized after taking this course is that there were a lot of things I didn’t know. Most of them are things that are already in the surface but I just didn’t pay attention to. This course gave me a new perspective on how I view sales and marketing. Whether you are new to sales and marketing or already a veteran, I think you can benefit from this course.”

– Marvin T.
