A couple of weeks ago I went to a seminar on content marketing, hosted by weteachme, as part of their WeTeachMe Masters Series. Before I get into that I’d like to praise the two women who spoke- Beatrix Cole and Ophelie Lachat. I’ve been to A LOT of events and it’s rare to find speakers so well informed, engaging and non-repetitive. I received an overwhelming amount of information in the two hours, which was a testament to these women and their knowledge. So, hats off to them! And hats off to We Teach Me for sourcing them.
A few nights ago, I went to an event that was all about Social Media and the connections you can, and should, be making there. It was presented by The League of Extraordinary Women – a group that support female-led businesses through hosted events. The guest was Emma Abrahams from Heart of Bone. She’s killing it in her industry with her unique style of what can only be described as badass jewellery.
As promised, I’m going to give you some tips on what to look for when you’re signing up with a designer, specifically focusing on the contract.
Rule number one: HAVE A CONTRACT. I can’t emphasize this enough. It doesn’t matter if they’re friends, families, or weekend lovers, whoever they are, contract it up. And beware of things like “Per my T&C’s which can be found on my website.” It’s DEFINITELY worth the 30 seconds it takes to dig your computer out of your bag and have a look.
