I mean honestly, who’s not going to love a blog with a name like that, right? Marketing Creativity is yet another amazing blog about creative business and how to rock it. It’s for people like you and me, but it’s also for anyone who wants to start their own business in the creative field. And let’s be honest, no matter what kind of business you’re talking about, there’s going to be a whole lot of creativity. You’re building something brand new, after all.
Now, if you read Check This Out every week, I’m sure you’ve noticed a trend. I follow a lot of creative business people. There’s a reason, I’m a business woman. Not one that makes any money, but hey, baby steps. But you might be asking yourself, what’s the difference? Why do I read so many different blogs about the exact same topic? Well, each one is a little different. Marketing Creativity, well, it’s right there in the title. This site helps me learn about marketing in a not sleazy way.
You know what I mean. There are helpful marketing strategies, and then there are evil, annoying marketing strategies. Now, my basic business model is give a lot of advice and tips for nothing at all + eventually make some tools for a little bit of money if I think it’s something that will help you and I would buy myself + write fiction e-books that I sell myself and pray like hell people like. Ethical business practices are kind of a must with that sort of model, when the focus is on helping you. So when I do marketing, it needs to be not sleazy.
It also needs to not be annoying. Like I mentioned, I’m on a lot of blogs. They all, all, have ads. I have ads, look at the links on the right hand side. But there are some sites that I’m just not going to anymore, because they’ve got pop ups that I have to click away before I can read, or ads in between the paragraphs of the post. Marketing Creativity has helped me lean there is a world of difference between the two.

And if you don’t think you’ve got to think about marketing, consider this; even if you get your book traditionally published, chances are your publisher won’t do a lot of marketing on your behalf. It might still fall to you, the writer, to market your book on social media and your author website. So check out Marketing Creativity, and be ready to sell your work when the time comes.
