A DIY GUIDE ON SALES & SELLING WITH EMMA JOHNSTON AND LISA SMYTH
Date: 5/5/21 6:30PM - 8:00PM | Location: Belfast
Do you struggle to know how to get paid for your creative work? Do you struggle to know how to pitch for new opportunities? Do you find it hard to talk about money with clients?
In this workshop, we are covering how to sell our services/products and learn how to get paid for creative work.
Whether you are just starting out, or already in your business journey, it can be hard to know how to sell your work and ask for payment. Women, in particular, can lack confidence in their abilities.
We want this workshop to help women who struggle with talking about money within business, that lack confidence in asking for money or pitching for work.
Talking about money in business is a hard thing to navigate, especially when you are starting out. It can be uncomfortable to know how to approach the subject. How do you approach people that you want to work with or sell to? How should you present yourself and your work? How do you bring up the subject of payment and money and actually close the deal and make sure you get the money you deserve?
It is important as women, that we continue to gain the confidence that we need to succeed in business. We want to empower women to be able to develop their own style of sales and selling their business products or services.
Within this module, we wanted to have a workshop with 2 women from different creative business backgrounds to share their story and offer advice and guidance on how they generate sales within their business followed by a Q&A session at the end.
What we will be covering:
- Getting your business in front of potential customers
- How to present yourself & business
- How to sell your business products/services
- Techniques on building confidence
- Communication as a business
- Navigating money & payment
- Building relationships with clients
