UK Creative Industries Network

Welcome to the UK Creative Industries Network Facebook Group (po...wered by We Are 3C). Take a look at our main website that connects UK Creative Professionals with key-decision makers and buyers.

This group is a place to share, engage and help creative businesses of all kinds - from artists, writers and graphic designers - to florists, web-designers and marketing specialists ...basically, anyone who loves to create!

Please note this is a group for UK businesses only. Businesses in this group are from across the UK not one specific locality. If you are requesting a service then please state your locality within the request. Please note that admin are in no way responsible for any business transactions between members.

Some guidelines for the group...

We actively encourage blatant advertising, but ONLY AT WEEKENDS. 3C has themed days throughout the week which give you opportunities to subtly promote your business and they are as follows

WEBSITE WEDNESDAY

TERRIFIC THURSDAY
Post ON THE WALL a recent achievement in your business

THAT FRIDAY FEELING

WE ARE 3C - THE WALL:
The wall should be used as a discussion stream, extended conversations are going to be useful to anyone running a creative business. Trade adverts, affiliate marketing and service based advertising may not be beneficial to the group. Positioning yourself as an experienced business owner by answering questions and engaging with the group is far better than self promotion that is more likely to get ignored or removed from the wall.

THE EVENTS TAB:
The Events Tab should be used for event based business promotion. Events should be beneficial to the creative business community, members will still get notification of events as and when they are posted and it is not necessary to post these events on the wall - these will be removed.

The Files Tab.
This is the one place where it is ideal to advertise your business. Create a document introducing yourself to the group. For ease of reference head it up with your personal name, company name, business area and area you operate in.
