This week’s chances to learn include a podcast, a couple of blog posts, and I am repeating my recommendation to attend Adobe Max!  

Here are this week’s opportunities to learn:

Three quick trips to brand protection  – is the latest podcast by Rachel Brenke. Rachel Brenke is an attorney specializing in intellectual property. She has a series of podcast episodes that will help you with your creative business. Rachel isn’t giving legal advice but does offer best practices. I heard her speak at a conference, and she is funny, smart, and engaging. 

How to Implement a Return Policy That’s a Win for Both You and Your Customers This blog post written by Shopify is a great resource for something none of us like to think about returns. In a perfect world, no one would ever want to return something; in reality, this isn’t true. Having a written return policy lets customers know what to expect from you and your business. It also helps protect you. It is definitely worth a read and seeing if you need to update something on your website.

Bright Ideas: Tips and Techniques for Photographing Jewelry – This post by Jody Doyle gives excellent tips on photographing jewelry. Nikon offers a series of articles on photography on their website. Some of them are geared towards product photography. Although this is specific to jewelry, many of the ideas can be used for other product shoots. And no, you don’t have to have a DSLR for this to be useful information.  

October 20 – 22

Sign up for Adobe Max – Yes, you still have time to register. And yes, you should look into the schedule to see if this is worth your time. I can’t recommend this conference enough, as you can tell since this is the third week I have told you to sign up! Promise, this is the last time, since it takes place this week.

Which of these opportunities to learn something new will you take advantage of?
