Learn 5 Steps to Starting Your Online Creative Business


Akshaya Borkar is a Melbourne artist who is keen to share her experience of running a successful art practice incorporating online practices.

This workshop will discuss the five basic things a creative person needs to understand before launching their online store. If you have already launched online store / website and are still learning about the online world, then this information will be helpful for you to fine tune your business further.

Topics to be discussed are

1: Types of Online Platforms to showcase your work

2: Presentation of your creations online

3: Basic SEO understanding

4: Creating Gifts for your customers

5: Building your Creative Brand.

The 2 hour seminar on June 20th, in Gallery 7 at 69 Smith St Gallery, will inform artists and craft makers about the 5 steps that need to be planned before starting their online shop / website. This information can be applied to any online platforms from online marketplaces, website stores, or any apps.

As Akshaya Borkar says, “Being an artist myself, I understand the problems faced by creative businesses or artists in making their business thrive in this competitive world. Online marketplaces are crowded, and personal websites are daunting to start, and traditional commercial galleries charge too much commission.”

“So, understanding the existing services and doing a planned business launch can get you off to a good start. I have written a blog explaining the 5 steps to selling handmade products online which I will explain and
discuss in depth.”

Akshaya is offering the session to members of 69 Smith St Gallery for $25 – i.e. half the normal price.
