DIGITAL | Diversify Your Creative Income

How many money making ways can you think of? Creative businesses often need help to brainstorm all the possible ways to diversify their income streams and become more financially sustainable.

Diversify Your Creative Income is an interactive online workshop that allows participants to discuss the various general ways that creatives can make money (including services, goods and passive income), and offers practical exercises to help brainstorm those ideas.

The workshops examines:

  • Identifying your Core and Complementary Skills
  • The Minimum Viable Offering
  • Using a Skills Audit to inspire ideas
  • How to identify a 'good' idea
  • Helpful resources and more.
