:: Creative business advice ::
Since launching Patchwork Harmony in 2008, Caroline has gained a mix of experience, from blogging, online retail, buying, PR, marketing, social media, event planning and networking. If you have or are wanting to start your own creative business, Caroline is happy to meet with you in an informal environment and share her experiences and answer your questions honestly and impartially, giving you ‘real life’ advice, something you would unlikely get from your local business advice centre. The advice is tailored specifically for creative businesses, and is less about writing the perfect business plan and more about the questions you were too scared to ask… “whats the best way to approach the press about my business?” “How do I gain readers on my newly launched blog?” Whatever your new business concerns, Caroline will try to advise in a friendly and informal way. Meetings are currently only available in the London area although it is also possible to discuss via email. Fully aware of the financial restraints involved with running a small, independent business, she offers affordable rates for this service, so get in touch to discuss your needs.
