Appalachian Creative Marketing Meetup: Client Matchmaking by David Nelson

April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

A meetup for ambitious creative marketers who aren’t satisfied with mediocrity

Saying yes to every project that comes your way may seem like the best way to build your portfolio and establish yourself as a go-to professional. However, this approach can cause more harm than good to both your client and business, leading to burnout and preventing you from growing into an industry leader.

Learn how to spot the red flags before it’s too late and avoid burning bridges, as well as how to identify key factors that determine whether a client is a good fit for your business. We’ll also discuss how to build and retain strong relationships with the right clients, so that they keep coming back for more. And for those clients who just aren’t a good fit, David will teach you how to let go and leave them thanking you.

So, say goodbye to the stress and frustration of dealing with the wrong clients, and join us for an evening of insight, knowledge, and drama (okay, maybe not that much drama, but you get the idea). See you there!


Our goal is to establish a bridge between students, freelancers, and agencies in order to strengthen the skillsets of marketing professionals throughout our region. We will discuss standards, processes, and allow space for people to get feedback and assistance on current work. We are people first and want to provide a place for networking with other marketing professionals to gain support in their creative marketing career and inspire future collaboration.

We’re just getting started and we’d love for you to be involved in the grassroots beginning of this exciting new venture!

Come grow with us!
