Hi there creatives! Are you having a De Niro moment wondering if we're, in fact, talking to you? It depends. Do you make something with your mind, voice, hands, or body? If the answer is yes, then we're talking to you. Creative is a pretty broad term - you could create apps, concepts, films, compositions, words, websites, songs, dance numbers, or pies (among other things, naturally we didn't include everything here, but you get the idea). Point is, you're trying to get paid for your craft, right? Having trouble thinking of yourself as a "business owner"?
Well then...check out Creatives Meet Business, a FREE event series that helps you transition from artist to creative entrepreneur. How do we do it? By creating an intimate set-up of roundtable discussions for you to get to know Austin's top professionals in the fields supporting the creative industry. Join us Tuesday, February 21st for the Digital Marketing Edition, hosted by Best Practice Media and engage with a diverse group of Digital Marketing professionals and get the skinny on all things Digital Marketing.
You keep hearing about how you should advertise online, but have no clue where to start? Have plenty of email addresses but not sure what you should be sharing? Do you speak about Google Analytics and your metrics with an air of mystery and wonder (but you're really wondering what on earth these things mean)? Well, then join us on February 21st to talk through all things Digital Marketing: from email and content marketing, to online reputation management to better blogging - the sky's the limit!
Featuring roundtable discussions with:
Claire Winslow, Best Practice Media // The Ins and Outs of Online Reputation Management
Chad Jones, Hatcreek Marketing // The Demystification of Insights and Analytics - Which Measurements Really Matter?
Cortney Hickey, lookthinkmake // What You Can and Should Do To “Influence” Search Engines to Work FOR (And Not AGAINST) Your Blog.

Chat with each pro for 15 minutes before they rotate to the next table - speed dating style - all while getting acquainted with your tablemates that span the entire spectrum of the creative industries in Austin. Don't know what we mean by "speed dating style?" No problem! You stay planted, so pick a table of strangers (aka - friends you haven't met yet) and settle in for the ride. Every 15 minutes, one of the amazing folks listed above will drop some knowledge at your table (and please feel free to ask questions, engage and ENJOY). Each one of them will be hosting a UNIQUE discussion, so no two speakers (or conversations) are alike.
Drinks and snacks are provided.
Three (3) attendees will walk away with a 6 month subscription to Lynda.com. Already thinking of all the amazing courses you could take? That's the spirit! Come to the event and see how you could be one of the lucky three.
We can't wait to see you!
