Creative Business Workshop: Diversify Your Creative Income

Take a deep dive into creating a Minimum Viable Offering, conducting a skills audit, passive income ideas, adding on products and services, and figuring how to conduct testing and check on how ‘good’ your income ideas might be.

Creatives are good at lots of different things, and with a little brainstorming and guidance, those talents can be turned into revenue. Becoming less reliant on government funding can also open abundant creative and commercial opportunities for savvy creatives that think outside of the ‘grant box’.

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

The workshop examines in detail:

  • Identifying Core and Complementary Skills;
  • Understanding and crafting a Minimum Viable Offering;
  • Using a Skills Audit to inspire ideas;
  • The ‘Cheat Sheet’ of ideas that previous creatives have used to generate revenue;
  • The testing process and how to identify a 'good' idea.
