From Creativity to Profitability | ESSENTIALS

Course description

Have a look at these symptoms of freelance designers that are ready to grow to the next level.

  • You have a problem getting the right clients.
  • You have ongoing downwards discussions on price.
  • You deliver your designs and then you move on to the next client.
  • You have no idea what you will earn in the next months or year.
  • Your business model is the same as any other competitor.
  • You don't know how to develop a business model.

If one or more of these symptoms apply to you, this free course and e-book is for you.

As a freelancer you need to be a designer, a CEO for the longterm strategy, a CFO for the cash-flow and accountability, a project manager to get things done in time, a marketeer and a sales person.

A lot to do on your own, right?
We will tackle the symptoms and cover the expertise you need. From CEO to sales person, in a highly effective roadmap.

Learn the roadmap to take your creative business to the next level. Don't be stuck anymore in ongoing downwards discussions on price, fierce competition and feeling uncomfortable when you have to sell.

Throughout this course you will learn:

  • The major trends and reasons for failure.
  • Why you should share your knowledge (online) and why now is the best time to begin.
  • How to determine what your key value is.
  • How to craft a creative business model that attracts your ideal customers.
  • How to create a value strategy that builds trust and authority in your creative industry.
  • How to build a viable business model so you are ready to scale.
  • How to build a value-driven business that makes a positive impact and a profit.

Build a creative business on your passion.

A brilliant way for freelancers designers to kick-start their business and shift their mindset so they can focus on the part of the job they enjoy. The content is clearly broken down and guides you through the step by step process of creating your own roadmap. I really enjoyed this course because it helped me get to the heart of why I do what I do and identify my passion!

Helps getting the creative juices flowing... in order to build profitable ideas. 3.5/5 because the first part can already be done with the book. However, I wrote more specific ideas the second time, with the online questions. I was more focused I guess. The survey is useful: it helps formalizing the plan further.

I really liked the way this course is created. It is very organized, clear and easy to follow. It really helps put your ideas in the right place and ground your creativity without losing your essence (something that can be an issue for most of designers) For a person with a kind of flying mind like me, this course will be really helpful!

DBA gave me insight into a whole new way of doing business as a creative; things I never thought of before. It's insightful, refreshing and motivational! Wim Kiezenberg really knows how to guide you in the right direction in a clear and concise manner. Very happy with this!

I enjoyed the online class, but I could not find any added benefit to the related book you sent me and I already read :). I guess I had a misled expectation about it :D.

Wim Kiezenberg

Strategist

Wim Kiezenberg is the author of “From Creativity to Profitability”. He’s also the creator of DBA. His strategies transform the businesses of freelancers into abundance .



Along the way he’s become one of coaches that inspires for change, innovation and personal growth. But it didn’t start out that way,

He decided decided to do things differently, developing his strengths in a brand new business model. A new way of working and living, in order to help other people. Wim is a helper. He just loves to help.

During his professional life Wim worked for 15 years in a multinational environment at IBM. In his jobs as brand manager and business development manager he learned more than he could ever imagine. It was truly a university in business innovation. In the last decade Wim has been a strategist and CEO of advertisement and design companies. Wim realised that the constant truths he learned in all his 30 years of experience, needed to be moulded into simple, easy to use methods that help you.

Small business owners like freelance designers are the engine of any economy. Their high level of knowledge of making their product and developing their skills, comes at a high price: the lack of a professional strategy. The ‘must have’ to become successful, that’s where Wim Kiezenberg steps in. He would love to be your strategist on demand. When and where you need it.

More than ever before, we all need highly effective roadmaps to guide our businesses in our rapidly changing and evolving world. That’s Wim wrote his book. To help designers to become more successful in their strategy.
