Great fun, and huge amount of useful information. I've got knowledge of marketing theories and strategies about which I had no idea before. And my favourite Toolbox website section impressed me so much! I would definitely recommend colleagues to take this training.

I'm super glad I joined LSM Academy and I've enjoyed the journey so far! It's easy and rewarding to complete the individual modules one after another and in the order you like. I'm looking forward to taking my marketing efforts further step-by-step with the help of Meg and taking my business where I want it to be!

LSM Academy helped me a lot to get a better understanding of what marketing is actually about and to define precisely what I want to reach with my translation business in the future. Meg does a great job with her very personal and professional approach and she is always available for personalized feedback and tips on how to proceed with the material in order to get the most out of it. I definitely recommend LSM Academy to any fellow language professional!

I like the step-by-step and bundle approach of the LSM academy. The marketing maze can be really overwhelming for solopreneurs, but with the worksheets all becomes much more clear and better structured. Also, it makes me think really hard about me as a business and where exactly I want to go.

I chose LSM Academy because it's the first comprehensive platform with all the info you need to get started and/or get your business to a new level. The best thing about it is that it's constantly updated.

Are you feeling a little overwhelmed with running your business?

It can be really hard to see the big picture when you’re so devoted to your work. Fuelled by your passion for facilitating communications all around the globe, day in and day out, you probably spend hours checking over texts and researching the rarest terms to ensure they are spotless.

Sometimes, our passion for our work overtakes other crucial factors in business - like marketing for example. It’s not always easy to figure out the most efficient way to present your services to potential clients and convince them to work with you. Especially when you already have so much on your plate.

DO YOU EVER...

Feel overwhelmed with the number of things you’re “supposed to” do with your business?
Find it hard to find time to research every bit of new marketing information, write tons of marketing content and hope for the best?
Feel unsure over where to present your services, what works, and what steps to take to attract your ideal clients?

WE've got you.

Running your own business is a challenging and exciting experience. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In fact, it’s supposed to be fun, satisfying and enjoyable, and this is what we’re aiming for!

what others are saying about LSMA

I love Meg's no-fluff approach to marketing and branding. This course is so informative and offers practical advice and tips on all the elements that really matter in business: defining goals, establishing your ideal client, implementing tactics and strategies to make your goals happen and so much more. I've learned a lot of useful information from this course that I'm already implementing!

Lauren Sindel, Freelance Translator & Copywriter
5/5

The Academy is a great source of easy-to-read tips on branding and marketing for translators. It provides solid advice and helps translators find inspiration to find out more about the marketing side of the translation business. I would recommend it to translators wishing to take their business to the next level.

Serli Varjabetyan, Certified Translator
5/5

As someone who combines business and language backgrounds, I found LSM very comprehensive and packed with valuable content. If you're aiming to grow your business and find new clients, go for it!

Marta Stelmaszak Rosa, Business Translator
5/5

LSM Academy is a great tool to dive into the world of marketing and boost your business development as a freelancer and staying in charge of your own future at the same time. The most appealing fact is that all the guidelines and tips have been successfully tested in real life and are very useful for freelancers and small companies who would like to make a step further.

Irina Cernobrovaja, Legal Translator
5/5

The LSM Academy is a rare high-quality resource the translation community highly needs. Taking branding and marketing tips and learning lessons from someone who masters them both is essential, and Meg is the perfect person to do so. And with a plus: on a visually attractive and beautifully written way. I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to leave their comfort zone and aim higher and better.

This academy is for...

  • Established translation or interpreting professionals who want to invest in boosting their business focused on long-term growth.
  • Translation and interpreting students or graduates wanting to go freelance and establish their own business - be your own boss!
  • In-house translators with plenty of experience who are ready to take the first step into freelancing.
  • Professionals who are already working on marketing their business but are willing to try new concepts and need some advice and support.
  • Proactive and enthusiastic business owners who are ready to put in the work to improve their branding and marketing and get results in the long run!

IT is PROBABLY not for you if...

  • You already work with your dream clients and are happy with the way things are - unless you want to try new things and need some community feels!
  • You're looking for a magic formula and the next big thing that will suddenly bring dream clients through your door first thing tomorrow - marketing efforts require a little bit of time to achieve results.
  • You know you absolutely won't have time to work on even one worksheet this month - try next month or plan in advance, so you can make the most of your membership and not feel disappointed.
  • You are looking for one-to-one coaching with regular personalised sessions (one-off sessions are available to book for LSMA members).

who is behind the LSM Academy?

Hey! My name is Meg Dziatkiewicz and I’m the founder of LS Marketing Academy and Websites for Translators, a web design and branding company specialising in boosting translation businesses since 2011. 

Apart from designing websites, I’m teaching a 1-2-1 marketing course, as well as taking part in international industry conferences, including speaking at a CTA conference in Colorado, BP17, Chartered Institute of Linguists (UK), London Metropolitan University, among others. During my 8+ years in the field, I’ve helped over 400 translation businesses boost their branding and marketing.

I’d love it if we could work together too!

Whether I’m holding a koala in Brisbane or Skyping a client in Thailand, I love exploring the world and the wonderful beings in it. Working with translators definitely gives me that opportunity!

Holding a degree in Marketing and Advertising, I’m also a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) to always stay on top of things and up-to-date with trends. I want you to benefit from my experience! 

Meg x

When I decided to rebrand my online presence and professional website a few years ago, I chose Meg and her team and I never looked back. I initially thought, well, once the website is done, the CV, proposal, invoice templates etc are completed, I am sorted. How wrong was I? I then soon realised how addictive benefitting from Meg’s services can be! Believe me, having somebody like Meg supporting you all the way with her amazing marketing ideas and her contagious enthusiastic approach is a real asset for our community. She is the queen of planning. She is able to convert your vague brand ideas into reality in a smooth, efficient and winning way and guide you through the journey.

I have chosen Meg to make my brand appealing to my target audience, what about you?
