Singer who’s been gigging your butt off, uploaded your music to Itunes, gone to industry events where you knew nobody, and prayed you’d be discovered. No luck yet.

Fine artist who’s been knocking on gallery doors, sinking every penny into booths at crafts festivals, given Etsy a shot. And it all feels sad and desperate.

Dancer or choreographer who works crazy hours putting on shows and hawking classes that no one shows up for. You’ve posted your best routines on youtube. When are you going to become that go-to, sought-after name who everyone wants to hire or learn from?

…Fashion designer, filmmaker, actor — you name it who’s been told time and again that it’s a tough business (code for “Don’t quit your day job, kid”). You laughed at that. Until you didn’t.

TEN YEARS FROM NOW,

WILL YOU STILL BE SERVING LATTES, CREATING EXCEL SPREADSHEETS OR TEACHING UNINSPIRED TEENAGERS…

AND DREAMING ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE MEANT TO BE?

OR WILL YOU ALREADY BE ICONIC?

I’ll take you back…

I got signed in 2004, at the fairly tender age of 23. A recording contract and manager — the dream.

“This is it, everything I ever dreamed of has come true,” I thought. No more day job. No singing in sad, empty bars. With this big break, I’d get to skip the “starving artist” phase and go right to that row of platinum records on my wall.

I had no creative control. I’d write a song I loved, and my managers would say, “That’ll never sell.” I followed what they told me, thinking if I listened to them, I’d “blow up.”

I did not blow up. I got some radio airplay. Some press. That should have been exciting. But the music wasn’t mine. I didn’t even like it. It sucked my soul, and I walked away.

It was up to me to make myself known, to make a living from my music. Either that, or find a crappy 9-5. A “proper job,” as certain friends kept urging me to get.  A Plan B that would pay the rent and stick me with the label “Could’ve Been” for life.

I took control of my career as an artist. I discovered that I needed to treat it like a full-on business, and run it myself.

I went and got my Masters in the business of creative arts. I set up my own record label and released an EP, which the BBC named Single of the Week. I created industry connections associated with Beverly Knight and Prince, and teamed up with them on an album. And, I developed Emergeination, my own platform for creatives to sell their work.

Along the way, other artists have been asking me, “How did you do all this?” And, more importantly:

“Could I ever do what you did?”

(Without going through a Masters program, that is.)

The answer to that is YES. Because there’s never been a better time for you, as an artist, to become iconic on your own terms.

Maybe you’ve already tried to go it on your own — using youtube, itunes, instagram, everywhere you’ve heard you need to be — and it hasn’t worked.

Or you’ve been told you’re too old, you don’t have “it,” your industry is so competitive that you have a better chance of winning the lottery than making it as an artist.

Or maybe you’ve got that “I can’t” voice in your head any time you think about the business end of getting out there. All you want to do is create, and have someone else take care of making you famous.

“I’d been so frustrated with my music career, I didnt know where to look to get more work and to help get my music out there. I came across BE ICONIC, I felt hesitant about joining but I was done messing about with my music. I wanted to get results and honestly, I’m so glad I did this.   In just 6 weeks I’ve become more focused, I know where I want to take my music career and how to get there. I love the fact that all my frustration has just gone, I have complete control over my career. This course gave me to skills I needed to become the artist I had always longed to be.”

Dan
Professional Musician

“I’ve worked with hundreds of artists over the years and I know the frustrations and difficulties they have to face. What I love about this program is that it gives control back into the creator’s hands, instead of them waiting to be discovered. Be Iconic gives all creatives the tools and solutions to create the career they long for.

Marcellous Lindsay

“I have just finished Uni where I was studying Art. I saw Susanna speak at one of my lectures, and it really inspired me to learn how to make my art my full time career. As soon as BE ICONIC was live I enrolled and I’m so glad I did. Learning how to sell my art online and even get a platform to do this on has helped me get started straight away. I love that I am now making money from my art. Thank you so much :)”

Tash
Fine artist

“This course was amazing. Before starting Be Iconic, I just felt like giving up. I had been working part-time jobs while I went to auditions and created my designs, but I wanted to do this full time. I have now learned how to turn my creative passions into a career that I love. I set up my store on Emergeination and am already selling my stuff online. What’s even more amazing, I’ve made amazing industry connections from working with Susanna & the Team.”

Michelle
Dancer & Fashion designer

And here are words from artists like you, who’ve used the Emergeination platform (included for you when you enroll in Be Iconic)…

“I’ve been using Emergeination for the past year. I’ve had more opportunities to perform my music and have released my new single “Illuminate” on Emergeination. The platform is really easy to use and I’ve instantly started to earn money from doing what I love. With their help, I’ve had great exposure, been contacted by newspapers and radio stations to do interviews which is really exciting! Thanks emergeination”

Abby
Singer, Songwriter

”First Time learning about the developing a creative business, the getting to use Emergeination has took so much of the stress away from selling my work.”

module-1

To kick-start everything, you need your master key. In Module 1 we will help you unlock your biggest dreams and give you a clear roadmap of where to go, showing you the steps you need to take to get there.
  • How to set specific, do-able goals and outcomes for you and your creative career
  • How to take action on your goals so that you’re “moving the needle” in your career every single day
  • How to design a 90-day plan that gets massive results
  • How to design creative products that fly off the virtual shelves
  • The three key habits you MUST adopt if you want a lasting career in your industry

module-2

In Module Two, I’ll show you how knowing your business can be the lifeline to your career and how, if done correctly, you can gain access to major investment and funding that could transform everything you do.
  • A proven formula for wooing big power players who can make your career. This’ll save you months or years of knocking on doors
  • My “fill in the blank” template for a creative career outline that brings in major funding — so you can focus on your art without having to worry about paying the bills
  • How to use your business plan as catnip to attract agents, record labels, managers, or producers.
  • A mental shift that turns you from desperate artist to commanding, impressive CEO — and will have industry A-listers in the palm of your hand

module-3

There’s nothing worse than creating an amazing product only to find yourself at the creaking door of an empty room where your amazing sales should be. Module 3 will teach you how to earn money from doing what you love, 24/7.
  • How to sell creative products online, mapping your hands-free, automated promotion system that makes you income 24/7.
  • How to “Gaga-fy” your brand: Create a core message that hits home with your ideal audience
  • How to design a “set it and forget it” freebie and opt-in page. (This is essential for growing your fan base)
  • Your Facebook targeting plan: pinpointing the exact groups of people who are born to be your fans
  • How to create irresistible Facebook ads that feel genuine, not salesy — and cost pennies per conversion
  • Inbox Magic: set up an email sequence that sells your creative products like crazy
  • Your first sales page: how to easily craft one that doesn’t feel sleazy or pushy (without this step, you’re leaving a fortune in itunes, etsy, or other sales on the table)

module-4

The BE ICONIC key card gives you instant access to tools that help you make crucial industry connections. Attracting the right audience plays a huge part in your creative success.

  • Your secret edge: Find out exactly how you’ll blow your competition out of the water.
  • How to get in front of the right industry contacts who’ll get you seen by the right people. (Hint: Chasing the wrong industry contacts is one big reason most artists never get anywhere)

  • Your lasting, magnetic brand: How to make sure your brand is consistent and recognizable in everything you do. Bexause mixed, “schizo” messaging is the kiss of death for your career.

module-5

Simply hiring your friends or unqualified people -- a trap many artists fall into -- will not just cost you money, but slow you down and hold you back. To rise quickly and stay at the top, you need a team of skilled, supportive people. But how do you pick the right ones?

This module will teach you:

  • How to understand your talents and creative flow, so you can identify the partners who fill in the gaps
  • How to hire indispensible helpers and experts who are shockingly affordable
  • How to be a master delegator, so you’re working from your strengths and doing the work that only you can do — while someone else takes the rest off your plate

  • A “who you need” checklist so your business grows, runs smoothly, and nothing falls through the cracks

module-6

We see it again and again. The people who make it big all have a certain swagger and confidence. You’ll never be iconic if you don’t believe in yourself. So how do you silence that niggling inner voice that says, ‘I’m just not good enough’? Time to silence it for good!

In this module you’ll learn:

  • How to see and smash through the limitations that are blocking your success (Includes bonuses: EFT, Law of attraction, meditations and visualisations.)
  • How to build a bullet-proof, professional mind set (Featuring industry professional Brett Mabbery, psychology coach and “secret weapon” of top athletes and artists)
  • The weird, simple thought exercise that makes you a superhero version of yourself — the world’s most famous creatives and performers use this trick
  • My personal arsenal of mindset tools that’ve gotten me through the lowest lows of my career and kept me on an upward track. Plus, real-life proof that this can all work for you, too.
