REVISED Going Insane & Loving Every Minute
I could say gravity made me do it, but that would be incorrect. Writing in a hurried manner can sometimes lead my message to be misinterpreted>
In stating that wedding sites ‘were wayy too expense’, I was referring to listing my small business on a wedding site. My art on glass is a niche’ and an exclusive product.
Not everyone is aware of the craft of tailoring custom toasting glassware just for them. A unique art form not found in the everyday market.
My market is an exclusive one. Thoughts of grandeur was what I caught when going to the on-line wedding industry. Much like catching a cold, one eventually gets over it. That is where my product search began with them.
“Not right now; No Thank You” is what would have been appropriate to write when I shared. But in my hurried state of insanity I wrote it as I thought; and as if everyone would get what I was stating.
I wrote it as if they already understood that being on a premiere wedding site would be awesome! It certainly did not intend to knock the wedding industry. I LOVE these wedding sites. Ideas and advice galore! Should I be preparing for a wedding, the on-line wedding world would be my first place to go. I am especially loyal and am big on shopping local, so that is where I, personally, started my search.
‘Going Insane & Loving Every Minute’ was written as a group ‘post and run’ that already had the first part of the story. I was catching up with them, my team members, on an a previous post and decided to use it as a piece for my Echoes of A Concierge blog.
Seth really says it best when he states “everyone peddles us the story that if we just team up, we’ll get exactly what we expect, that it will all be as we dreamed it to be.”
Research informed me, but more importantly, reminded me that running around with my product looking for customers was not the answer. I already knew that, but in my exhaustion, or was it exhilaration? Perhaps one day you will see my products in the wedding industry, or not. But no matter.
I love what I do. And I live to create for you! xo deborah
Going Insane & Loving Every Minute
It has been so long since I have 'chatted' that I am just gonna throw it out there and hope it brings out a reason for someone else to participate.
Since January, remember when I was invited to participate in the premiere bridal show? Yeah, well I designed and painted 7 products to display for custom order in a manner of days; and in the meantime researched and purchased out of stock items to fit that concept spending hundreds; selling only 3 through that contact.
Season has been slow, but for which I am thankful giving me opportunity to educate myself...........
I researched all the wedding sites; and, NO THANK YOU! The expense is enormous and they charge price per market. I read a bunch, I learned a bunch.
I also learned a bunch about setting up my own e-commerce site too.
I moved my online gallery to a different platform and turned it into an e-commerce. I can't kid you, even with tech support it is one big piece of work to accomplish! I am so dizzy. I don't know whether it is from exhilaration or exhaustion lol
I am writing this as fast as I can to save time as I should be making time to write in my blog! HA
Surely those of you that set up your own site can relate with me .........
There have been moments of lost faith; and then a wake up where I am filled with hope. And I move forward......finding that we are now in the month of August !
I discovered many a great sites. One of them Fiverr.com. HIGHLY recommend you check out their services:)
I wrote up a few lines filled with my SEO and now have a sackettdoodles RAP song>
Added my photo product stills; I thought I was ready to hand it over for TV ad campaign only to find out it has to be converted to be able to use it for a TV broadcast (broadcast being the keyword). Then, I can add it to my empty YouTube account. So,conversion here we come.
OMG, I sound insane.....?
Come back and let me know what services you decided to get with fiverr.com if any.
okay, I am hitting post now, so forgive me if this is long. I must be an introvert as being social is exhausting me!
Who else has lost their mind?
