The word on the street.
Puno is a breath of fresh air in this industry. She's relatable, funny, and a woman 👏about👏 her👏 business! She's taught me how to make so much coin just by using Squarespace, something I never thought was possible. Plus, she referred some of my favorite clients, and that in itself is invaluable.
This is NOT your average online course. It is so much more. First off, as a designer, I now fully understand the magic of Squarespace as a tool. I never knew how much you could create with it and I’m so glad I have it under my belt now. Second, every little detail was thought out–from the amazing 3D world to the little GIFs throughout. Third, PUNO. Not only is she the ultimate fountain of Squarespace knowledge, she’s also hilarious, engaging, and incredibly genuine. She shows true dedication to everyone’s growth via answering questions on Slack, the weekly live calls, and sharing her favorite resources.
BONUS–so many hot tips about freelancing. Worth. Every. Penny. Especially because with that newfound knowledge, it’ll really be no time before you make that amount back anyways 🤷🏻♀️ Personally, I think of it as a short term investment that’s gonna make you serious bank 💎
I JUST FIXED MY NEWSLETTER BLOCK AND I FEEL LIKE A WIZARD!
I have to send a client 2-3 different comps this week which will ironically interfere with going full speed here. Sure, I could use the site comps for level 3, but if I only have this limited window for having feedback from such a killer group I'd much rather use it on a few spec sites I'd love to design / go wild with. You just created too great of a course here! So much to learn.
I checked out PeopleMap on the free trial and upgraded to pay for it within minutes of using it because I saw how valuable it could be. In just 24 hours, we already received a DM from a prospective client wanting more info about our services by email to potentially hire us. I'm totally sold on PeopleMap...and Puno! :)
I only wish I had found this course sooner! Puno not only teaches you how to master Instagram but your brand and your business. It's not about how many followers you have but about building a community, getting that ROI and reaching your goals.
I love that she connects all of the great tips and tricks back to YOUR time because time is money. You are running a business and you only need to spend time on the things that reward your business. And the time you spend on this course will reward your business.
I seriously can't recommend this course enough.
I'm obsessed with ilovecreatives. Everything from the beautiful and thoughtful design, the perfectly curated ads and profiles, and of course, Puno! If you haven't met her yet, you're missing out. But then again, I'm sure you'll meet her. She's everywhere.
I religiously await the weekly emails. I have met so many wonderful people through ilovecreatives and most importantly have found such wonderful clients through ilovecreatives.
ilovecreatives has been key to my career launch this past year. I've gotten some incredible clients through the ads as well as finding great job leads. I really look forward to Wednesdays every week for new opportunities! The creative profile is my favorite part as it serves like a friendly and more personal resume.
When looking for a PR team, I knew I didn't want a cookie-cutter big-box agency, but didn't know where to start my search for something better. Answer: ilovecreatives. I figured that the type of people advertising on ILC would be more creative and cool than your average randos, and I was right -- the first PR team I contacted was through an ILC ad, and it was a great fit. They're amazing and are now on retainer with us.
ilovecreatives has been such a source of discovery for me! It's so fun to be able to connect with different creatives based on industry and location, and several clients of mine have found me through the site. It's the perfect way to attract the kind of people you want to work with.
PeopleMap transformed the way I search for collaborators.
As a musician, there are many creatives I need to connect with: other songwriters, photographers, A&Rs, etc. It gets really hard to keep track of all of my contacts because most of them I know exclusively on Instagram.
PeopleMap not only makes it easy to find these individuals, but it also keeps them super organized, and streamlined. Not to mention, connecting and engaging with these creatives also grows my following, which would be so so hard without the presence and eases of PeopleMap.
I can’t recommend this sh*t enough. I also can’t recommend the Instagram Marketing course enough as well. The mind and grind is a real tactic to not only help you gain more followers, but also great tactic on how to connect with the individuals you want to connect with online. Win Win.
This is perfect, thank you so much for the time and effort you took to create the template comparison post! As a fellow Squarespace designer who is also teaching Squarespace this has become one of my best resources and my students love it! Thank you!
So much to love about I Love Creatives! Such a high calibre of both creatives and creative companies converging in one beautifully designed and easy to navigate online space. As soon as my profile went up, I immediately had new business inquiries hitting my inbox - and I signed my first contract with a new client within a couple of weeks. The emails keep rolling in, and I couldn't be happier with a creative business platform than I am with Puno's amazing feat with ilovecreatives.com
Puno, thank you so much for a wealth of information! As an artist, who has been working on things solo, this is definitely a lot to take in, but so helpful to know that there are so many ways to change and add to my strategy as I grow.
Wow! Wow! Wow! The Squarespace explainer/guide is the best I've seen. Thanks so much for putting this together. This is really helping with my website mini-rebrand.
Inspiration + expertise = Puno. Need I say more? No, but I will! Let me fill you in... I had the pleasure of attending GA's Instagram Marketing Workshop facilitated by Puno and it was worth every penny and every moment of time. In the two months since taking the class I was not only able to double my followers, but I increased engagement at least .20%. I not only gained insight with regard to better engaging the community that I needed to be a part of, I also unlocked the mystery and gained clarity - making the process of instagramming so much more fun! If you didn't know, now you know. Check Puno out. She won't disappoint.
I took Puno's advanced Instagram class and damn, it blew my mind. Not only does it give you insight into creating a successful profile and all the benefits Instagram can provide for your brand, but Puno breaks down every single element that goes into it. I'll admit at times I was slightly overwhelmed, but after six hours I came out of the class 100% more informed, more confident in my social media skills and empowered to gain real, authentic followers. Not to mention I met some fantastic people during the class and it was super relaxed and fun. I highly recommend it for anyone serious about using Instagram as a marketing tool for their brand. If you think you already know everything there is to know about Instagram, you don't. This class will teach you so much!
ilovecreatives could also go by creativesloveilovecreatives. I know, I know… I should stick to design and not copywriting. Honestly though, I truly love this site. I posted my profile in late November 2015 and by early December I had already gotten inquiries for potential jobs. By January 2016 I had met new clients and began working with bigger studios and agencies than my own – all of which found me through this site. The cherry on top: all the jobs I’ve gotten through here align with the kind of work I want to be doing.
I’ve also found creative folks to collaborate and work with. One of them is Ana Ottman. After launching my re-designed website I realized I needed help with getting the copy to be just right. I found Ana on ilovecreatives and have absolutely enjoyed the experience of working with her. So much so that we’ve begun working on other copy related projects.
ilovecreatives.com is the site I send my friends and colleagues anytime they need to find someone to hire or get hired. If you’re in a creative field, get your profile up! You won’t regret it.
I've been a huge fan of ilovecreatives.com for awhile. We've posted several ads on the site - everything from full-time roles in our L.A. office to part-time contributors anywhere in the U.S. Each time, I've been impressed with not only the number of applicants - but, more importantly, the quality of those applicants. It's become the first place I turn to fill creative roles for us.
I love ilovecreatives' Creative Profiles. It’s basically a curated (and vetted) resource for great talent. As a small start-up, I am in constant need to find creative freelancers. Instead of spending hours on Indeed.com going through resumes, LinkedIn, or expensive services like 24/7, I can come to ilovecreatives to find professionals. What’s especially awesome about the profile section is the kind of talent it attracts: people who have a lot of creative integrity and drive to make awesome work they believe in, as opposed to just a source for a quick buck. I’ve found an amazing photographer through this site. Highly recommend!
"I have benefited SO much from ilovecreatives!! I've only been in LA for 2 weeks and I have my first freelancing gig over the next 3 days for a clothing company (who reached out to me because they saw my creative profile!). I actually reached out to Wyatt after I read his, and got a lot of insight on LA. Before I even moved here he told me good places to look for apartments, work, galleries, and now I'm actually interning at one of the galleries he told me was one worth looking into! Being apart of ilovecreatives has landed me new clients, new friends, new opportunities, which literally is priceless. That's my two cents!" - Sara Clarken
I love creatives! After I was featured on the newsletter for my Creative Profile, I received inquiries about working with great people and companies. I had a new interesting client in just a few days! It is so great to have a site that works to bring such like minded talent and opportunities together. Thank you!
After posting an ad looking for new writers I received such a good response from so many interesting and talented people. When I've reached out for collaborators using other ad outlets I never saw much return on my investment, but with ILOVECREATIVES I've had an amazing experience! I'm definitely planning on using their platform for future ways to connect with creative individuals and businesses.
The company I work for is in search of awesome talent for upcoming projects, and I needed to provide a list of top talent in LA to our Creative Director. After my ad was placed I immediately got a dozen or more responses and we're currently choosing our favorite candidate from the group. I Love Creatives was there when I needed it!
I love creatives and I love ILC! After posting an ad, I received emails about my SEO Website Rehab service literally hours later. It was so refreshing to get interest from potential clients so quickly! I also love the ease of creating an ad, incredibly simple! Thanks, Puno & Co. :)
"After posting an ad, I received multiple emails of interest on my upcoming trip to Tulum that same day! New clients signed up as a result and I made a contact to help me with my graphic design. ILC has been great to work with and network through! I highly recommend them."
"I have used ILOVECREATIVES to not only search for job opportunities but connect with my community of creatives. Through ILOVECREATIVES, I have a job and an internship doing what I love with people I love- event producing and sales. Community leads to creativity and ILOVECREATIVES is a great platform connecting people and places!"
