    74. The Easiest Way To Kill Your Businesses Growth - Trigger Warning

    74. The Easiest Way To Kill Your Businesses Growth - Trigger Warning

    Might ruffle a few feathers on this one.

    The easiest way to lose your business is by choosing your contract over your reputation (aka: your client experience).

    Ever waited in line for something for HOURS, only to get to the front & they’ve told you they’re closed and will not make an exception because it’s in their ‘policy?’ Yeah, we’ve all experienced the policy-police before before and you know it doesn’t feel good.

    Don’t make people feel the same way about you.

    Do we think you should let people walk all over you? Nope. But do we think there’s a lot of things creatives hold onto in their contract that are ruining their client experience? Absolutely. (I.E: Do we think refusing to give out RAW images is probably the dumbest fad in the creative industry? Yes - before you think we are crazy, listen in: we will explain in this podcast).

    We believe as service providers (which you are if someone is hiring you to do a job), your main concern should be your client’s experience. Not your art. Not your money. Not your IG followers.

    If you get this backwards (which we see so often and we ourselves have been tempted to do), you’ll end up resenting your clients & either leaving or losing your business.

    But if you get it right? You’ll have a thriving business of people who genuinely believe you want what is best for them OVER what is best for your business growth (which, in turn, causes business growth). And we think that’s something to be proud of.

    Creatives: start being an actual service provider, not just an artist.

    So buckle up, it’s about to get spicy.

    73: A Sales Secret That Separates Experts From Beginners

    73: A Sales Secret That Separates Experts From Beginners

    Do your sales conversations sometimes feel… awkward? Like you can’t wait to get off the phone? Or you feel good about it but you can’t seem to book at the rate you want to?

    It might come down to this ONE THING:

    When people feel insecure, they usually word vomit advice to make themselves look knowledgeable or to feel in control of the conversation. HOWEVER, when someone is confident in their area, they are free to ask questions to seek understanding what the true problem is, so they can customize a solution that’ll work for their client. 

    In this podcast we will be going over the 3 mindset changes that’ll help turn your sales conversations from awkward to genuine relationship – giving you more leverage not only in your business, but with your clients too.

    71. 3 Simple Steps To Take The Mystery Out of Your Money

    71. 3 Simple Steps To Take The Mystery Out of Your Money

    When you take the mystery out of money, you take the fear out of money.

    Too often creative entrepreneurs hide from their financial situation. Feeling overwhelmed, they shove it in a closet and rarely peek inside - hoping everything is “doing fine.” But we believe it doesn’t have to be that way, and becoming financially capable isn’t as daunting as it may seem.

    This episode was sparked from the conversation of “what are the 3 habits financially strong people do?” You might be surprised how simple they’ll be to implement - - which is why we love these 3 simple tips.

    If you are a creative and LOVE learning about business - we’ve got a huge announcement for you.

    70. Getting Ghosted - What To Do & How To Handle It

    We all get ghosted at one point or another.

     

    No – not the spooky kind, but definitely can be equally as scary! Ghosting is what happens when you’re talking with a client, you look like you’re moving towards and sale and then… crickets. They never respond. Maybe days or even weeks go by and you wonder what happened.

     

    Ghosting is not a matter of if, but when.

     

    But don’t fret! Figuring out how to respond to ghosting is incredibly important. You can turn around a ghosting situation easily and simply by taking 4 simple steps we give in this podcast that has worked for us and many others! It’ll get you on the road to winning back your client.

     

    If you loved this episode – and you’re getting stoked on how to pitch new clients, we’ve got something for you.

    We are here to give you exactly what to say to land your next deal. This works for any creative industry and has led to landing huge multi five figure deals. And it’s also customizable to your industry and brand, so it’ll work for everyone. And bonus: we actually think it’s quite simple.

    So if you’re ready to start filling up that inbox with sales: get the Outreach Templates: email/DM templates to land the deal. You can start pitching those brands you’ve been dreaming of today by getting your templates at www.creativrise.com/outreachtemplates.

    We not only give you templates, but explain the psychological 7 Pillars of the Outreach Framework. Our aim is that you find understanding in the psychology of each pillar so you can clearly build each email or DM with ease, landing you deals.

Not a “good” podcast - the perfect podcast.

This podcast isn’t good or great - it is absolute perfection. I have listened to countless podcasts for business owners, especially creative business owners, and I am always fatigued at the lack of resources or helpful information they share along with the advice being to “hustle harder”. I am truly at the point with this podcast where I don’t listen while I’m walking, driving, or distracted because I know every single episode is going to be a wealth of incredible information. As a wedding photographer entering the branding space, this podcast could not be a better fit for me. They absolutely have my trust as business owners, and I’ve never ran as quickly to purchase one of their guides because I knew if the podcast was this amazing, the paid resource would be even better. I am so thankful this podcast exists, and I cannot recommend it enough!

Tactical & Inspiring!

LOVE the Creativ Rise podcast. These two tackle the nitty gritty of creative entrepreneurship - everything from financial advice to how to book your dream clients! They’re authentic and inspiring to entrepreneurs of all kinds. You’ll walk away a better business owner with each episode. THANK YOU Joey & Christy!

hannahhhhhhh;) ,

This podcast will kick your BUTT into gear.

Let me start by saying I listen to a lot of business + photography podcasts. Some better than others and I can say this is hands down the best one. Christy & Joey consistently put out accurate & helpful content that genuinely educates people on all aspects of owning and operating a business. Not only do I love listening to them, but I TRUST the information that they put out there. I listen to Creativ Rise when I need someone to light a fire under me if I’m finding myself becoming complacent with where I am in my biz!

From one photographer to another (or any business owner) you will NOT regret giving this a listen. You’ll just have to forgive me when you suddenly decide you need to start 4 more projects because you’re feeling extra inspired.
