If there's one thing I stress 100x a day to my clients looking for social media strategy or a wesbite refresh is CONTENT.
Now, content can mean many things and it can be extremely overwhelming for a business owner who is struggling to step outside of their brand to create a clear message for their audience. It can be imagery, website copy, blog posts or graphics. In this post, I'm going to introduce OR re-introduce you to this amaaazing website called Creative Market and how it can help elevate your business!
If you're familiar with Creative Market, I'll summarize this post for you below and you'll be on your way but if you want a little more help with how to use Creative Market to it's full potential scroll along!
1. Creative Market offers FREE goods every week to members. Get yours now!
(PS. It's a free membership, too.)
2. There are templates for everything from website pages, to contracts, to social media graphics, and even media kits. Here are some examples I'm obsessed with: Blog Media Kit, Avenue Proposal, and this font bundle!
3. Creative Market can be a place to find collaborators, web designers, and more! If you like some of their products, check their full profile to see what else you can purchase to keep everything on brand then follow them to see when they release new products.
Now how can CM help a blogger or entrepreneur like yourself? Read along...
When starting a blog or website like most of my clients are, they struggle with photography and graphics to help make their website stand out. Can you guess my first piece of advice? Yep, Creative Market.
I personally even use a CM photo on my home page (at the time of this post) because I have so many ideas for photos and haven't had the time to hire a photographer to bring my vision to life. The beauty of CM is that there are stock photos and styled photography that will help make your brand cohesive on the web.
In regards to social media, creatives have even made pre-made templates where you can download and edit on your own! I like to use these for quote graphics, or sale promotions if a client doesn't have the budget for custom graphics each month. When building a social presence, this is super important to start early and refine as you grow!
And finally, when it comes to finding a custom font, brush lettering is a hit lately and somewhat overused in my opinion. BUT, CM has an unlimited amount of fonts that can differentiate your brand. Try them on promotional material, social graphics, web graphics and more!
Now if that doesn't give you a few good ideas to get started – I'll have a few more options coming to the blog soon!
