I now have a completely different mindset for my business, a practical direction and I feel much more hopeful for it’s future

Every week for the past 8 weeks, my fledgling business has been nurtured in the safe hands of Elle and 3 fellow creatives.  Our 4 businesses are at different stages, going in very different directions, and the Kickstart Your Business sessions have been fantastic. We chat away and then the aha moment hits.  Elle has been getting our brains to where they need to be. Money, branding, marketing, online stuff, staying sane, we have thought and talked about them all and come up with a useable plan that fits our own business.  I have learnt so much from being with this group; we share and laugh and get lots of thinking done. There is even homework, which has a point, and is fun. As we reach the end of the course, I have a completely different mindset for my business, a practical direction and I feel much more hopeful for it’s future.  And I am going to miss my friends from this group. So, #lovewhatyoudo: Elle gets creatives and creativity.

in.cube8r galleries have given me the opportunity to establish my brand in vibrant, dynamic, inspirational MELBOURNE! While each cube tells the story of its artists, together we form a community hub of Australian creative talent. As an interstate cuber being part of this community would not have been possible without the help & support of the in.cube8r team.

I’ve built up some great relationships with other fellow in.cube8r artists

I love selling my works at in.cube8r because it is such a great community, like a little family. Not only are Elle-May and the staff super helpful and supportive but I’ve built up some great relationships with other fellow in.cube8r artists from my time there and I love supporting what they do and really appreciate the support and feedback I receive in return. I’ve been a part of other artist spaces previously and have never had the genuine support that I have received from in.cube8r. We are given lots of opportunities to learn new crafts and also expand our small business skills with regular workshops and classes run at in.cube8r and we also receive a lot of feedback and tips on how to get more out of our cubes.

A perfect stepping stone for any new artist

I think in.cube8r is a perfect stepping stone for any new artists who want to share their ideas or works to the public. I have learnt a lot about the market as the team will let me know the customers’ feedback when they visit and give us a lot of information and news to update what’s happening in the market which is absolutely priceless. I hope that will let more people get to know my pieces through in.cube8r in the near future

I can take care of my website myself & it’s great to know Elle’s always there as a backup!

I have really appreciated all the knowledge I’ve gained from Elle’s teaching and mentoring. I have attended planning and marketing workshops with other Cubers that were great value. She has also coached me in developing websites for both my own art and my collaborative Creativity Cluster, a group of nine artists that I facilitate. Elle explains processes clearly, and tries to ensure that I can do a range of simple website maintenance and updating tasks myself. However, it’s great to know she’s always there as a backup!

The live mentoring is always helpful!

Thank you for another great live mentoring session and well guided. I like the live ones because: They often delve into other areas, so are VERY content rich They give me confidence because I can see that others experience the same problems I learn tips from others They really help me feel connected to the other makers, part of a great group, rather than just a maker being supported by you and your team.

Elle is a godsend with her wide skill base and willingness to help

Elle’s website consulting services were invaluable to me and my business. She helped me to develop a new website for my jewellery business from scratch, taking my initial creative ideas from concept through the technical build stage, to final completion and ‘go live’ over a period of about six weeks. As I am not at all technically minded, Elle’s support and input were invaluable in getting the site set up and functioning correctly and securely. Elle’s initial work included helping me make decisions on the best software platform to meet my needs and budget, choosing the right template to ensure an aesthetic fit for my brand, setting up the hosting and all the necessary security features, and selecting and installing the most effective plug-ins to ensure the site had all the functionality I required to run the business. Elle is all about coaching her cubers and clients so that she not only achieves a great result by doing a lot of the technical development work on clients’ behalf, but teaches how to do things along the way so her clients can upskill and feel more confident in managing their website in the future. That being said, Elle is always on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot, if required! I’m so grateful that she is able to continue supporting me with technical difficulties, software upgrades, hosting queries, and coaching on new functionality as I need it. Elle is a godsend with her wide skill base and willingness to help. I achieved

I have found my own style of art because of Elle-May’s guidance

Working with Elle-May has been absolutely vital at the moment of giving form to my art practice. Before I started working with her, I knew I had some skills but I was rather lost on where to direct them. Through a series of sessions, she helped me to channel my ideas in the right direction by helping me to set a list of goals – both short and long term – and setting some tasks that had to be done in between sessions. Those tasks have helped me greatly and I can now start seeing my goals coming through. So far, I can say I have found my own style of art and that is because of Elle-May’s guidance. In addition, the vast knowledge that Elle-May possesses of the artistic scene in Melbourne is a real help in focusing my art practice in to a creative business one.

Building a website with Elle-May made me feel capable and motivated without being overwhelmed

I highly recommend Elle-May to “hold your hand” while you build a fabulous new website from scratch to really showcase your products! My handmade children’s clothing business had outgrown the very basic website I had set up through Big Cartel. I didn’t know how to make a better one without paying thousands of dollars! Then, in walked the tech-savy Elle-May, full of knowledge and wisdom, with the ability and passion to share it with others. The step-by-step process, and hand holding over the 10 mentoring/zoom sessions, with “homework” and tasks set at the end of each session made me feel capable and motivated without being overwhelmed. Elle did all the really technical bits, setting up the back end of the website that really don’t need to be touched again (and was so fast doing it all, I just sat back watching in awe). I was then given the freedom of making the website my own, from the colours, layout, content and style that are true to my brand! Through her mentoring, I now have the skills to make changes, add products, blogs, photos plus more as needed on my website. I’m so excited by the end result and really feel very proud of what we achieved together.

Easy peasy website!

Creating my website with Elle-May was an experience I was nervous about as I am not that tech savvy when it comes to coding etc. I had no reason to be nervous because Elle-May made the experience seamless and an enjoyable time! There is homework to do but that is also part of the continuous support and maintenance ongoing. This part is also an important part as you decide what you want and Elle-May guides you through what goes well etc! My website went live for Christmas and it went off without a hitch! Thank you Elle-May for helping a not so tech savvy earring maker create a colourful and bright website!

Professional, Patient, highly experienced and fun, Elle is the person you need to help you achieve your marketing goals

I attended a session with Elle as I was looking for assistance setting up one of my projects on Instagram and Twitter. I wasn’t sure how to start. My aims were to make a good impression and engage as many people as I could. Elle taught me how to use Instagram for my marketing purposes, including scheduling, mapping posts, colours, brand and audience. She assisted me to create a social media marketing plan that mapped out my goals, and developed my own style, message and purpose. Elle has developed a range of resources too! These are clear, easy to read and extremely helpful for people at all stages of their marketing journey. I refer to them almost every day. Social media marketing is way more complicated than it looks, and having a marketing professional to guide you through it is an enormous help. I couldn’t have done it without Elle. Although I am only at the beginning, I know with Elles help I will achieve all of my communications objectives. Professional, Patient, highly experienced and fun, Elle is definitely the person you need to help you achieve your marketing goals.
