Getting on top of your marketing and staying on top of it, just got a whole lot easier.

TOGETHER, WE’RE GOING TO NAIL OUR MARKETING ACTIVITIES.

ONE THING AT A TIME. ONCE A MONTH.

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You’ve got a website (which you might not even like that much) but it’s just sitting there looking pretty and not doing anything for you.

Your ‘marketing plan’ is posting on social media but you’re not very consistent and you don’t have any real strategy.

There are so many marketing activities you know you should be doing that you feel completely overwhelmed, so you end up doing nothing.

Been there. Got the t-shirt *

Actual t-shirt not pictured.

I’m Melissa. Nice to meet you, by the way.

These days I run The Design Space, a successful online design business for creatives. But I definitely got here the hard way.

To be fair, there isn’t an easy way, but you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did. 

I’ve bought courses I’ve never used, hired ‘experts’ who didn’t go into enough detail and I’ve got stuck again and again with either the tech or finding the right strategy for my business, because believe me…one course does not fit all.

WHICH IS WHY I’M EXCITED TO INTRODUCE

THE MARKETING FIX

The monthly membership for creative businesses who are ready to get serious about their marketing and who need expert help, strategy, accountability and feedback. 

Imagine your business one year from now…

Remember that long list of marketing activities you had to tackle?

✔️ All ticked off. You made a plan, chose the marketing fixes that worked best for your audience and implemented them all. Now you’re getting ready to scale…

That feeling of marketing overwhelm?

✔️ Completely gone. You have an on-going marketing plan and you’re not getting tempted by every shiny new app. You know what works and how squeeze every last bit of value out of the things you do choose to do.

Trying to do everything on your own, without wasting your hard-earned cash?

✔️ Never again. You belong to a community of creative business owners who help and support you. Even better, you have access to some of the best marketing experts around.

Photographers,  designers, artists, makers and digital businesses of all kinds…this is for you.

GOODBYE OVERWHELM
HELLO SWEET, SWEET SIMPLICITY

THE MARKETING FIX WILL GIVE YOU THE EXACT STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE, EVERY MONTH, TO ACE YOUR MARKETING.

DO ONLY THOSE MARKETING TASKS THAT GET RESULTS

 Forget trying to everything at once, badly. I’ll help you focus on one task at a time and help you do it brilliantly so that you can see real results. No more #fomo because you’ll be following a plan. More importantly, no more overwhelm.

GET EXPERT ADVICE FROM THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS

Although I’ll be teaching you some awesome marketing techniques myself, I’m not an expert at everything. Instead, I’ve got a team of guest experts, who are THE go-to person in their field. In fact, they are so good, you wouldn’t normally be able to afford them 😉

CORE COURSES AVAILABLE WHENEVER YOU NEED THEM

At the heart of the membership are our courses, covering everything from branding and building your website to SEO and social media. Self-paced bite sized video learning.

MONTHLY LIVE TEACHING EVENTS

Together we’ll be tackling a different marketing activity every month and you’ll have every design resource you’ll need to get started straight away – from Canva templates to swipe files. Watch live with your buddies in the community or watch when it suits and jump on a Q&A call.

A LIVELY, INTERACTIVE COMMUNITY

The Marketing Fix community is a private Facebook group which will form of the hub of the membership. You’ll be working on the same issues at the same time as other business owners who are just like you.

With live sessions streamed into the group, monthly surprises (don’t want to give away too much) and a place to get answers and support, you’ll make real friends at the same stage of their business and who ‘get’ you.

MY WHOLEHEARTED SUPPORT

I love building communities. Indeed if you’re reading this, you may already be in one of my Facebook groups.
I’ve been teaching online for several years and I believe in supporting everyone who places their trust in me by generously giving my time and experience as freely as possible.

I am passionate about helping people to build amazing websites and to successfully market their creative businesses.

INSIDE THE MARKETING FIX

The Monthly Live ‘Fixes’ and Q&A Calls

Once a month, we’ll grab a cup of tea (or something stronger – not going to judge) and we’ll get together for a live online teaching event, designed to tackle one marketing activity each month.

I’ll be joined by a range of experts – from email marketing to Insta-gurus. I’ve invited the best people I’ve worked with and others who are on my dream list, to bring their best actionable tips to share with us.

Even better, we’ll provide you with any resources you need to get the job done, whether that’s a template to use or copy to swipe. Because who’s got time to waste?

Every Fix will be recorded and added to the membership library and if you can’t make it, I’ll be hosting regular watch parties so you can ask questions live. 

Two weeks later, I’ll be live for a Q&A call where we check our progress, ask questions and tackle any roadblocks which might be holding you back.

The Course Library

At the Design Space, we’ve been selling and teaching online courses for 3 years and we’re really excited to be able to include most of those courses in the monthly membership, especially our flagship, Build Your Own WordPress Website course.

QUESTIONS?

Who is The Marketing Fix for?

The Marketing Fix is for any small creative business who wants to implement a solid marketing strategy, without getting overwhelmed. It’s a blend of live and recorded learning sessions, so you can choose your own learning style.

If you value community and accountability, you’ll love being a member.

Does it matter what stage my business is at?

Not at all. No matter what stage you’re at, you’ll have the right resources to plan and execute your marketing. 

If you’re new to running your business, you can complete our ‘foundation fixes’ which will quickly get you and your website marketing ready.

And if you’re more experienced, you’ll be able to tap into the latest thinking from our guest experts and ask them questions relevant to your business goals.

I already have a website or taken your courses. Why should I join?

Although you might not need all of the course resources right now, technology, algorithms and strategies change.

Our courses are always up-to-date so you can dive in as and when you need them. We’ll also be adding new lessons to existing courses and new courses over the coming year. 

But the courses are just one part of the membership. The monthly live teaching and Q&A sessions and the accountability you’ll get through being part of a supportive community will provide massive value. 

Can I get one-to-one help with problems?

Although this isn’t a 1-2-1 coaching course, there are plenty of opportunities to get help. You’ll belong to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions and get help, you can ask questions during the live teaching events and ask for help with specific problems during the monthly live Q&A calls, where we’ll all be together on screen.

You can also book additional help from any of our experts at a discounted rate. 

What happens if I miss a session or fall behind?

Every session and call will be recorded and posted in the group and in the membership website area for you to watch whenever it suits you. I’ll also be hosting a ‘watch party’ replay of the monthly fix sessions. 

Although the fixes come in a logical order, they are self-contained, so you can easily dip into them in any order. 

What if I don't like it or want to cancel?

Absolutely no problem. You can get a refund during the first 30 days, no questions asked. And if you want to cancel, you can do that in just a couple of clicks from your account page. You’ll retain access for the rest of that month until your cancellation takes effect. 

How about a look behind the scenes?
