Creative Market is one of my favorite business resources. Creative Market is a community-driven website, similar to Etsy, where shop owners sell digital goods. Creative Market is primarily targeted at creative entrepreneurs and small business owners.
On Creative Market, you can find resources from stock photography, logo templates, fonts to social media templates.
Although, Creative Market, is often targeted at designers and creatives it can be an invaluable resource to small business owners who aren’t ready to make the leap to hiring a professional designer.
In this blog post, I’m going to discuss how you can get the most out Creative Market resources.
