Why is Marketing Important - Do What You Love in 2020 - Lesson 5

🗣 Marketing is a skill that many creatives are pretty bad at. We love making things, but we’re rubbish at telling people they exist. We don’t want to beg or brag so we say “I’ll let the work speak for me”.  👣 Unfortunately, in most cases, if you build it they will NOT come. You have to tell them about it and carry them there. This is where good marketing comes in.

Watch this space to see how we're going to be tackling this issue.

The way he plays with light and colour, invites viewers into an alternate universe where they can create their own stories about the characters that he presents. This magic formula has earned him a massive audience of over 3million people. We’re proud that this is the first podcast interview he’s given, we loved this chat and think you will too.

We wanted to focus more on Pauls process in this episode than lingering too much on the stats of depression and suicide and ended up with what I think was a very positive and uplifting episode.

Win by 1% with Alex Manzi

Alex Manzi is a podcaster, a positivity and mindset coach, a speaker and a content creator. Alex believes that most people are struggling with boundaries that they've put in their own way, through repetitive thoughts and actions. Having overcome our own self imposed boundaries we tend to agree.   In the show Alex talks about going from factory work to landing a job at BBC 1Xtra as their head of social media. This would be an incredible story on its own, but Alex pictured more for himself and quit the role to go full time into producing his own content. Alex's podcast 'The Dreamers Disease' has reached the top three on the iTunes self-help chart but as we discuss in the episode; his impressive numbers aren't really a driver for him, it's the messages of gratitude that he gets from the people he helps that keep him going.

Finding Your Passion with Sarah Malcolm

Sarah Malcolm is a yoga teacher, recipe developer, content creator and blogger. We had to get Sarah on the show because she supports herself through her hobbies and interests, which is what we're all about! Building her profile has presented her with lots of opportunities, collaborating with various brands in the food, wellness, yoga and travel spaces.   Sarah spent time working at 'Deliciously Ella', and whilst her role was not something she wanted to do forever, she used the opportunity to learn as much as she could about the industry and creating recipes. It was at this point she began to understand food as a business.   Despite being told "No one cares about your breakfast" on Instagram when she was just starting out, Sarah kept posting. Turns out a lot of people *do* care and she has built a 10k following on the platform.   We loved chatting with Sarah on this episode. She's done so much already and she's just getting started.

Creating Your Own Future with Shannie Mears

Together they launched the Elephant room, an alternative advertising agency, which champions creativity and diversity. Shannie describes her journey, growing up in Birmingham and her decision to move to London. She is a testament to what’s possible as soon as you start getting out there and ‘creating’. She says that she has a creative mind even though she is not artistic and we believe that it’s this attitude that has helped her achieve so much. Shannie gives without expectation, continually connecting people and encouraging collaboration. Her role at GUAP magazine is more than a side hustle but somehow she manages to work on this as well as other projects, creating exposure for new artists and collaborating with brands. We loved this chat, it went a little longer than most of our interviews, but we didn’t think we should cut it down because there was so much gold!!

Making Money From Your Passion with Dave Koor

Dave Koor is a musician, producer and all around legend. Dave's story is proof that the music industry has evolved and artists are no longer beholden to the whims of big record labels. He has managed to carve out a creative career; playing live gigs, releasing music on vinyl and online and promoting artists through his label; Albert's Favourites.   We talk about putting in the leg work by driving boxes of vinyl records round to record stores and getting heard by creating a network of fellow musicians and supporters. Dave is a member of the band 'The Expansions' whose Spotify plays exceed 32000 every month. We discuss getting to that stage by setting up dominoes all over the place! This is a great episode and even if you don't have a musical bone in your body you're sure to find some value in it.

Quitting the 9-5 with Manon Lagreve

This week’s guest is Manon Lagreve, fresh out of the Great British Bake Off pressure cooker! Using the show to springboard her career, this is a really interesting time for Manon. After this conversation, it feels like she’s always been preparing for this moment. Years ago her only option would have been to open a bakery; in 2019 her options are almost limitless. It’ll definitely be exciting to see what she does next. In this episode, Manon describes growing up on a French farm, what it was like being on TV and her future plans. The timing for this episode was perfect as we caught the chef the day after she quit her 9-5!

Exchanging Money for Happiness with Alexandra Dudley

Alexandra built an incredibly successful company. She took the decision to close down the business because it wasn’t making her happy. We loved talking to Alexandra about her journey from owning her own company to now, becoming an influencer, writing a book and pursuing what makes her happy. By consistently posting online and by networking, she has built a tribe of supporters that allow her to pursue her dreams. Instagram; @alexandradudley

How to Build an Audience with Adrienne Ldn

It was super cool to sit down and chat with Adrienne London. Adrienne is a blogger, speaker, personal trainer and Adidas brand ambassador. With all that going on you wouldn’t think she’d have time for much else, but she’s also a mum and hosts ‘The Power Hour’ podcast. Her podcast hit the Itunes global top 5 within 12 hours of launch and this is a testament to the network of supporters she has built around her. Adrienne is so happy and overwhelmingly positive. At first glance it would seem like opportunities just seem to find her, but after listening to this episode you realise that’s because she is so focused and hard working. I think this episode will give you a real insight on what it takes to build an audience and a network around you. The power of ‘being in the room’ and talking to people can open so many doors. I hope this episode pushes people to start making these moves to help grow their opportunities!

Trailer

In 2010 we started our first business, Graffiti Life. Back then; there were no real community platforms, advice or relevant podcasts. We started our business with a canvas on an easel, handing out business cards on the high street. In the years that followed we have generated a massively successful business. Our team has grown from three to fifteen and we regularly make art for global brands like Nike, L’Oreal and Disney. We’ve also expanded in other ways. We’ve opened a tattoo studio, a company focused on creative out of home advertising, an interior design project and a gardening club, amongst other things! We are often emailed by artists and creatives asking advice. This is why we have decided to make the Creative Rebels podcast; to empower the next generation of creatives.
