7 Summary of Week 3

At this stage of the course, you should be starting to feel more familiar with what a freelance business is and the support that might be available to you when setting up on your own. This week you’ve focused on the needs of a creative business, and a creative business owner, and you’ve started to explore some useful organisations and individuals who could help you. You’ve also looked at some of the issues around business partnerships.

You should now be able to:

  • analyse gaps in your own skills and knowledge
  • identify the support available to you
  • build a useful network of contacts and collaborators.

Now that you’ve finished the content for this week, you might find it useful to revisit this week’s introductory video to listen again to the experiences and opinions of our freelance interviewees.

Next week, the emphasis will be on identifying your market, your audience and your competitors.
