A Key Ingredient to Accelerating Your Product-Based Business

As of September 5, 2017, there are 1.8 million sellers on Etsy, selling over 45 million products. That's a lot of buying and selling going on JUST on that little, OK, big platform. 

It's a busy marketplace and if you're a seller on that platform, it's probably hard to be heard over the throng of all the other product-makers. 

But, I have great news for you, there is one, sure way to get noticed that will not only set you apart but have customers notice you immediately and potentially buy from you faster.

Practicing Grace

A lot of the creatives in our industry champion grace as a tagline but it's harder to put into practice than you would think. For me anyway.

Do you feel "behind"? Or like you should be further along than you are now... or that your following should be bigger? Or your email list should have more engagement... ?

If you feel any of those things, you're not alone. I think it's natural to want to improve but when you're constantly down on yourself with where you're at, maybe things need to change. And that's where I find myself.

Why You Should Steer Clear of Free Content

When I started my business, I thought I had it all figured out. I had soaked up all the free content that was out there like a sponge. I just knew my business would take off so I could quit my day job and live the dream of working at home in my sweat pants.

The truth is, while I had a lot of "sidelines" skill, I had no actual real "in the field" experience and that is where a lot of people, myself included, can get stuck. 

So today I'm sharing my observations on free content, why it can be detrimental to your budding business and how to deal with the overwhelm of content overload.

Brand Launch for Frolic and Bloom

From the moment I spoke with Jessie on the phone, I knew she would be a joy to work with. And I was right.

Her strong southern accent and always-kind manner made the client experience truly enjoyable. I'm so excited to celebrate the brand launch of her photography business, Folic and Bloom, as well as share a behind the scenes look at the process and all it entails.

So let's jump in!

A Behind the Scenes Look at the Branding for 'Not for Sissies'

I love sharing a behind-the-scenes look at projects I'm working on. Not only does this give you a more broad perspective of the scope of a project but it can also show the real life back-and-forth that happens within a project. And this one is no exception.

Ciara came to me wanting to brand her blog, Not for Sissies. It was a fun project from start to finish and I'm excited to share the honest communication and understanding that got us to a conclusion that we both loved.
