Thank you so much Elle-May for your recommendations with the workshop, it was so insightful! I've been struggling with time management and consistency for a while (and marketing takes up sooooo much time!). The workshop got me re-thinking how I can manage my marketing efficiently that suits my current lifestyle. I am super pumped to implement changes I've learnt, AND be consistent with it!
Thank you for all of our coaching sessions. You inspired & enabled me to finally get organised, begin taking some decent images & create a website that is a digital portfolio of my work. I couldn't have done it without you!

I have really appreciated all the knowledge I've gained from Elle's teaching and mentoring. I have attended planning and marketing workshops with other Cubers that were great value. She has also coached me in developing both my own NancyDeeSculptures website and the website for Creativity Cluster, a group of nine artists that I facilitate. Elle explains processes clearly, and tries to ensure that I can do a range of simple website maintenance and updating tasks myself. However, it's great to know she's always there as a backup!

The optimising Instagram workshop was a great way to break into the sometimes hard to understand insta world. Elle is great at creating a tailor made experienced that focused time on the areas we needed most, would recommend to anyone wanting to start building an Instagram following

Elle is the much needed bridge between creatives and business. She understands artists and how to impart her knowledge in a way which is engaging, understandable and exciting to implement. Couple that with the wonderful supportive environment offered by other creatives in the same position and you have the perfect foundation from which to build a sustainable creative business.

At in.cube8r Prahran every week for the past 8 weeks, my fledgling business has been nurtured in the safe hands of Elle and 3 fellow creatives. Our 4 businesses are at different stages, going in very different directions, and the Kickstart Your Business sessions have been fantastic. We chat away and then the aha moment hits. Elle has been getting our brains to where they need to be. Money, branding, marketing, online stuff, staying sane, we have thought and talked about them all and come up with a useable plan that fits our own business. I have learnt so much from being with this group; we share and laugh and get lots of thinking done. There is even homework, which has a point, and is fun. As we reach the end of the course, I have a completely different mindset for my business, a practical direction and I feel much more hopeful for it's future. And I am going to miss my friends from this group. So, #love what you do: Elle gets creatives and creativity.

Doing this course has helped me to get really clear on the direction I want to take my business and helped build my confidence to actually do it. It's been filled with practical advice, generated a ton of ideas and been a source of great support and inspiration for me. Lots of laughter too.

I highly recommend Elle-May to "hold your hand" while you build a fabulous new Website from scratch to really showcase your products!
My handmade children's clothing business had outgrown the very basic website I had set up through Big Cartel. I didn't know how to make a better one without paying thousands of dollars! Then, in walked the tech-savy Elle-May, full of knowledge and wisdom, with the ability and passion to share it with others.
The step-by-step process, and hand holding over the 10 mentoring/zoom sessions, with "homework" and tasks set at the end of each session made me feel capable and motivated without being overwhelmed.
Elle did all the really technical bits, setting up the back end of the website that really don't need to be touched again (and was so fast doing it all, I just sat back watching in awe). I was then given the freedom of making the website my own, from the colours, layout, content and style that are true to my brand!
Through her mentoring, I now have the skills to make changes, add products, blogs, photos plus more as needed on my website.
I'm so excited by the end result and really feel very proud of what we achieved together.
Creating my website with Elle-May was an experience I was nervous about as I am not that tech savvy when it comes to coding etc. I had no reason to be nervous because Elle-May made the experience seamless and an enjoyable time! There is homework to do but that is also part of the continuous support and maintenance ongoing. This part is also an important part as you decide what you want and Elle-May guides you through what goes well etc! My website went live for Christmas and it went off without a hitch!
Thank you Elle-May for helping a not so tech savvy earring maker create a colourful and bright website!
Elle’s website consulting services were invaluable to me and my business. She helped me to develop a new website for my jewellery business from scratch, taking my initial creative ideas from concept through the technical build stage, to final completion and ‘go live’ over a period of about six weeks.
As I am not at all technically minded, Elle’s support and input were invaluable in getting the site set up and functioning correctly and securely. Elle’s initial work included helping me make decisions on the best software platform to meet my needs and budget, choosing the right template to ensure an aesthetic fit for my brand, setting up the hosting and all the necessary security features, and selecting and installing the most effective plug-ins to ensure the site had all the functionality I required to run the business.
Elle is all about coaching her cubers and clients so that she not only achieves a great result by doing a lot of the technical development work on clients’ behalf, but teaches how to do things along the way so her clients can upskill and feel more confident in managing their website in the future. That being said, Elle is always on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot, if required!
I’m so grateful that she is able to continue supporting me with technical difficulties, software upgrades, hosting queries, and coaching on new functionality as I need it. Elle is a godsend with her wide skill base and willingness to help. I achieved a fantastic-looking site that is on-brand and well presented at a fraction of the cost of other web developers. I can’t recommend her professionalism and technical abilities enough.
