3 Domestika Courses You Need to Watch & Learn from

As you all know, I’m very passionate about Domestika courses. As a Domestika teacher with two courses on the platform, I can attest to their relevance, professionalism, and the fact that they’re taught by experts who practice what they preach.

On days when I’m not feeling my best or in the evenings when I want to watch something engaging (and it’s not another pop-icon documentary), I enjoy watching lessons on marketing or business. There’s always something new to learn, and I find that each business and brand owner offers unique insights and perspectives on managing a business.

Here are my three recent favorites that I highly recommend you watch, take notes on, and apply.

Creative Freelance Fundamentals: Building Your Business

Have you ever taken a course on starting your business and then felt overwhelmed by not knowing what to do or where to start? I certainly have! Even now, some aspects of running a business still feel stressful to me, and there’s always room for improvement.

One specific area where I’ve struggled is defining the purpose, mission, and vision of my brand. I never knew how to articulate these aspects. Even when I had a coach, the guidance was often too vague and uninspiring, or conversely, too ambitious and overwhelming.

Arabela and Elle from The Weekend Creative explain these concepts, along with budgeting and client outreach, in the most approachable, friendly, and actionable way. If you’ve struggled with this too, you must watch their course and put their advice into practice.

How to Show Yourself and Your Work to the World

Coming out of the COVID lockdowns and becoming a mom to twin boys, I felt like I lost my voice. I didn’t know what to say on social media, whether I was still relatable, and most importantly, if I still wanted to attract the same audience.

Then I discovered Lauren Currie’s course on “How to Show Yourself and Your Work to the World.” In her course, she debunks myths about self-promotion, addresses common perfectionist issues, and helps you share yourself and your work with the world despite any challenges.

Lauren’s course has been a lifesaver for me. We need more women like her who are inspiring, knowledgeable, and outspoken.

Client Relations: Techniques for Creatives

Since having my boys, my business hours have been limited, and the number of clients I can take on isn’t what it used to be. However, I’ve decided to focus on quality rather than quantity and improve the client experience.

A crucial part of the client experience is client relations. Let’s be honest: if your relations are mediocre and your communication isn’t sharp, you’ve probably lost the client right when you said hello.

Lane Cope from The Heavy Studio demonstrates how to go from approaching the client to writing a brief and presenting the proposed project. With tips on avoiding common (and less common) communication mistakes and managing payments, this course is essential for every small business and brand owner.
