Win a Personalised Marketing Assessment for your Small Business

This giveaway is a really exciting one for anyone running a small handmade business!

Mike Carthew  and Anna Ward, authors of Commercial Creatives and owners of Two Red Trees are offering the following to someone running a creative business:

a personalised assessment of one lucky winner's work, marketing and online strategy.  It will cover customer profiling, copywriting, SEO, photography, etc., and will lead to a marketing strategy for the winner.

I think this prize is incredibly valuable, as well as generous - anyone running a small business is eligible to enter.  Mike and Anna would also like to feature the lucky winner as a case study on their website - if you win you can discuss this further with them, but as far as I can see, it's a super opportunity for some extra publicity!

Mike and Anna's book (win a copy here)

To enter, simply leave a comment telling me a little bit about your business.

The lucky winner will be picked at random on Friday 1st February at 12 noon UK time, and announced soon afterwards on this blog.

Good luck!  If you missed Tuesday's giveaway (vouchers for Abakhan Fabrics) you can enter it here.  If you missed Monday's giveaway (Kindle or PDF copies of Mike and Anna's new book, Commercial Creatives) you can enter here.  And the giveaway for Magix photo-editing software is here.

Pop back tomorrow for yet another giveaway.  Are you exhausted yet? I am!!

Hi Wendy - what a great selection of prizes! I think I have to sit this one out, though, as Teddy Wares is not much more than a collection of thoughts and dreams -and WIPs at the mo! x

Another fabulous prize, I've been selling bespoke handmade jewellery for a while now but I really need to start pushing myself forward and exploring all avenues to start making a profit

Fantastic and generous prize! I fill my spare time by making bags of all sorts of shapes and sizes. I'm not from a background of 'business' so this would be ideal to help me take me to the next level!

What a fantastic prize. Loving your week of competitions!

I'm really trying hard to up my game and improve my little card and gift business. Spending lots of time this month planning and learning how to do things better. This help sounds just what I need.

What a fantastic prize! I started my handmade accessories business in July 2012 and so far have sold online and via wholesale orders. Looking to streamline all my plans in 2013!

You have got some great giveaways this week, not surprised that you are exhausted! As I do not yet have a business I too shall have to sit this one out (if only I had procrastinated less..... :( )

CHRISTMAS PIE CRAFTS said...

A fantastic prize and for someone who has a tendency towards a butterfly approach to their business, this would be a great help. With orders I am focused, but for general stock-making I tend to not focus on specific crafts but 'try' lots of different ones. A well structured marketing plan is an absolute must for me to improve exposure/sales.

I have just quit my day job, so am now completely self employed and hoping that I can generate enough business to make that a worthwhile jump!! I make personalised and quirky personalised gifts. This is an amazing giveaway :-)

Another great giveaway Wendy!

I have lots of plans for my little creative business - more ideas than time to manifest them i find! It would be great to get some guidance on how to move forward :) x

This looks like a wonderful prize! I feel like I've been playing catch up on Planet Penny since I launched as a business and would love some help to clarify what's going on!
I'm juggling yarn, patterns and needlefelting...

Adaliza said...

Oohhhh - this would be absolutely perfect for me. I teach full-time at the moment and run my hobby business Adaliza where I sell homeware, gifts & accessories at local fairs. Textiles are my passion and I have plans - oh yes - I need the hobby/work balance to shift so that Adaliza becomes my main (only?) income. This would be a fantastic start to my plans for the year.

This is a fabulous prize! So far this year my shop, Polka Dot Dreams, is doing relatively well however I really want to make the jump to running as my main source of income but I know I have a lot to learn before I can!
