Creators now become changemakers. It’s time to launch your creative career by building your website and embracing your abilities.

Why you need a website.

Creating a website for your business is an essential step in the process of launching your creative career.

What’s the first thing you do when you hear about a new business? If you’re like most people, you look them up online!

When people hear about your business and want to learn more, they’ll search for you online too. If you don’t have a professional web presence, you’ll be losing out on a lot of opportunities. A great website can help you convert prospects into paying customers.

What you need to do.

This programme is about your dreams for your future career. What do you want to do? Who do you want to become? How will you tell that story to the world? This module challenges you to create a website for your creative business. To help you put your best foot forward, you will have access to videos and resources from our brand partner as you complete this module. Your website should describe your business, showcase your best work and entice customers to hire you.
