Free & Affordable Marketing + Sustainable Business Pro Tips
Many of you know that Live Creative recently launched our Lunch & Learns—A DIY marketing and sustainability pro tip monthly series. We had a packed house for our first one—”Branding on Purpose” — and then Covid-19 hit. Now we’re taking our own advise and pivoting our business and classes to a digital platform.
Our creative team has stepped up and designed new digital learning and inspirational tools to share Live Creative Studio’s best pro-tips with start-ups, entrepreneurs and DIYers, small business, and small marketing departments. Now more than ever, with strapped budgets and less support, many businesses are doing their marketing themselves. The Live Creative team is here to help advance your creative capacity and increase revenue.
Truth be told, we’re also here to inspire good design, authentic marketing, and new purpose-driven business models that are profitable and beneficial to people and the planet. Our hope is that if there is a silver lining to this crisis, it’s this: a deeper understanding that a sustainable business model is not just a “nice idea”, but an imperative. What we do to the planet, we do to ourselves.
So listen up, we’re giving away lots of tips and resources for free to help your business in these difficult times; in return you can help us by sharing and liking this blog, our social, and purchasing our more in depth affordable marketing and sustainability digital products. We thank you for the love.
Our New Projects: Free & Affordable Digital Downloads
Free Tech Backgrounds:
As a creative collective, we collaborate online—a lot. We are huge fans of beautifully designed desktop & phone wallpaper. We believe that “a cluttered desk means a cluttered mind”, and in the case of your desktop, a clean and organized background can make all the difference between a productive day and an unproductive one.
We are designing a unique collection of free downloadable tech backgrounds for you each month, with sustainability, nature, purpose, and motivational themes. Your Live Creative tech backgrounds will include designs created with beautiful colors, clean lines, and inspiring quotes. Say goodbye to that over produced stock photo that’s been on your laptop since you bought it, and welcome new inspiring designs every time you open your lap top or phone! Here’s a sneak peek at one of the April graphics that will be available for download next week:
Free Monthly Printable Calendar:
You’ll also be able to organize both your business & personal lives in style with our monthly printable calendar. Just like our tech backgrounds, our monthly calendar will have a new theme each month and will always be designed with aesthetics and functionality in mind.
