I can't believe its been over 3 weeks since I have blogged the time slips by so quickly. Not that I am not doing anything this definitely is not the case.
I constantly read from you how important it is to spread the word about your wares to sell. There are so many avenues today to accomplish this without knowing which is the best. We have Twitter, Facebook, Web sites, LinkedIn, Blogging and the old favorite of mine Word of Mouth. In order to accomplish this I have found that it must be done everyday. I wonder where I am going to fit in the creating part since I am a Customer Service Rep during the day hours too. Not to worry I tell myself the house can be a bit less perfect and the garden can wait until Sundays. So I have made a schedule for myself morning hours are working on projects for either the local store here in California that I sell to, the web site and any special orders received from family and friends. The early night hours are for promoting on the media I mentioned above and those late night hours when nobody else is awake is to sit and think of new ideas. These late hours are around 1-2am I am found thumbing through magazines, scouring the internet, looking at old photos of items I created years ago and a bit of dreaming. I do my best idea planning this late so peaceful and in the summer months you could find me out on our deck under the stars sitting on a rocker just thinking of what I could create or have Steve cut for me in wood the next day. He is so funny because I barely jump out of bed some mornings with all these ideas that he gives me an odd stare as to say"who are you". I really do overwhelm him sometimes with my ideas. But the good guy he is we discuss if the idea is possible and off he goes to make it a reality. No Steve wastes no time once we decide.
Well I am hoping that out of all my words today you to will come to a conclusion of what schedule works best for you. I know it is harder for you that are Moms with small children to tend to but when your creative juices are flowing and your passion for your ideas are flying out of your head you will find the time.
Make sure to promote even if it is quick note on one of your media choices we all love to show what we have made and better yet we love to see other creations.
Added a few pictures of my latest items you can find on the web site.
