Every time we get a question, we ask ourselves if someone else might have the same one. If we think they do, then we mark it down here!
Hopefully you’ll find what you’re looking for, but if not, you can always drop us a line at Creator Collective HQ or use this email form below!
What is the Creator Collective?
The Creator Collective is a free content creation and marketing education course. Our objective is to get a new breed of creators in Singapore excited about storytelling and content marketing. Participants will learn to create content that drives the right messages through different platforms to build an audience and generate ROI.
What do I get out of this course?
Participants will gain clarity, focus, and enthusiasm for storytelling and most of all, leave with achievable, specific next steps for a future in content creation and marketing.
When and where does the course start?
The course will take place from 9am to 2.30pm every Saturday, beginning on 27 January, 2018. There will be a break for Chinese New Year and Easter. All workshops will be held at PIXEL Studios, 10 Central Exchange Green, Singapore 138649.
Is this course certified?
The course is certified by award-winning content marketing agency Brand New Media (BNM) and the Asia Content Marketing Association (ACMA).
What if I can’t attend a class? Will I be penalized or not be certified?
All participants are required to complete 8 out of 10 modules. Please refer to Course Modules in our Learn section.
Who will I learn from?
You will learn from media industry experts and popular content creators, and they won’t just be delivering presentations! Each topic will include hands-on experience, individual group guidance or an extensive Q&A session with the speaker. Please refer to Speakers in our Learn section for more information.
Where can I download course material?
You can download all course material in our Learn section. We will be uploading all our slides after class through the Missed Something? portal. Also, look out for our Tips And Tricks to help you create your content solution!
What are the course pre-requisites?
There are no strict course pre-requisites. We’ll be looking for individuals who are enthusiastic about making great content and learning how to market their solutions. However, it would be a plus if you have already started making content on your own.
How much is the course?
This course is being offered free of charge (and no, there isn’t a catch).
What do I need to bring to the workshops?
At the first workshop, we will provide a workbook and stationery, which we hope you will use throughout the programme. We would encourage you (or at least one person in your team) to bring a laptop.
Who owns the content submitted to the Creator Collective?
The Creator of course!
If you submit content to us to publish as an example of your work, you’ll be granting us a license to publish and distribute it – but the content belongs to you.
Are there any restrictions on content?
There’s a sign at Speaker’s Corner in Singapore that reads:
The speech should not have the potential to cause feelings of enmity, hatred, ill-will or hostility between different racial or religious groups.
We agree with them, so we tend to avoid content that we feel will cause unnecessary conflict or ill will.
That only applies to the content that appears on the site of course, and we will hope you understand.
Please note that as a Singapore publication we are also subject to local laws. You can find a summary of content that is ‘not allowed for ratings’ (NAR) here at the IMDA site. (Located on page 10)
The Interview Process
Why was I rejected for the workshop?
There are a number of reasons:
1) You may have not have completed the application form that was sent to applicants upon registering for the workshop. This means you didn’t get an invitation to our Opening Night to be interviewed by our panel of industry experts
2) You may not have fulfilled all criterias required to qualify as a participant during your interview with our panel.
What is needed to be selected as a participant?
The selected candidates had to have a certain amount of knowledge or experience in content creation or marketing, although it was not mandatory to be experienced in either. Selected candidates must also have been able to show full commitment to the 8 compulsory modules out of 10 to be a participant.
Can I re-submit my interview questions to qualify for the course?
As the selection process was very strict, all decisions have been made and are final. You will not be able to re-submit your answers to the interview questions.
Will the course happen again next year?
If the outcome of the workshop proves to be positive, there might be a similar course next year. Please like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram for updates.
Please feel free to come back to the webpage as all presentations will be published after each module is completed at: https://creatorcollective.asia/missing-something/
Will there be a replacement to include me if someone else who was selected cannot attend the course?
Yes, we may find a substitute for someone who cannot attend the course. You will receive an email if a slot becomes available to you.
What If I am accepted, but I am not able to complete the 8/10 courses?
Please contact Lynn at email@example.com to tell us why you cannot attend the course, and we will assess you from there.
