The Art of Being a Bitch...

If you are using Social Media as a means to promote your business and you consider yourself an expert on the subject, make sure that on your sites and listing, you are spelling the words, Social, Media, Enthusiast, Expert, and any others associated, correctly. My programs all have this little squiggly line that pops up and tells me I am spelling something wrong. These things are a gift that make it possible for us to not be geniuses and correct errors for us. Put your best, spelled correctly, foot forward...
Now, without going on a ten page rant, those who know me, know I am long winded, I just have one more topic to discuss. I know that people like to be the face of their business, but, if the only photo that you have, or can take, make you look as though you are possibly a serial killer or maybe an ax murderer, you might not want to be the face of your brand. Maybe a nice happy family shot? A flower? Something not so scary?
Sorry, I just had to...
I hope everyone is having a great day, please take this post and all post in the lighthearted manner in which they are intended... Unless of course you are a serial killer, take me seriously, quit trolling the internet..

My Weekend Project...

|I lightly sanded of shine and removed any chipping pieces from table base and then added painters tape.|
|After removing the legs, I removed all paint chips with a scraper , and sanded lightly, just enough to take the shine off.|
|I wiped the legs off well and got them ready to paint first coat.|
I chose a French blue as my first color.
Once the paint was dry, I sanded the shine of this layer of paint and scuffed through some of it to where the chip marks were showing. and in some places, make it where you could see the white.
I did not focus on painting the legs perfectly, because I knew that I was going to just be painting over them, the next two coats were Soft Suede and Leather Brown. I picked those colors, because I had them here in the house.

Proper Business Etiquette

I have seen numerous places telling people and businesses to gain followers on Twitter by following people and then once they follow you back, un follow them. And, I have watched numerous fellow Etsians following this advice.
Let's break this down. This is the computer equivalent to reaching out to shake someone's hand and then pulling your hand back when they reach for it and running it through your greasy hair. There is nothing more unprofessional looking or that could make you look less trustworthy. Why would you damage your reputation with a possible customer just for the sake of followers? I would rather have 5 followers that all want to shop than 500 who are only there because they want more followers. The point of social media is to build a steady, reliable, trusting image of your business, getting your brand name out there in a positive way, and gaining exposure to those people who will potentially purchase the items you sell. No part of that has to do with having the most followers on Twitter.
Purchasing followers. This is another thing that is constantly being recommended and sold, by so called Marketing People. Most of these names are fake and they truly don't do anything for your business because they aren't buying anything from you. Twitter will flag these names for inactivity within a matter of weeks and delete them for being fake accounts. It is just a waste of money.
Spend the time necessary to get your brand name into as many places as you can. It takes time, it takes work. But, anything in life worth having does.. And, it's worth it... When you are done, the people who are following you will be people who respect you and are interested in your items.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend...

- I am Tammie, a Designer | Mother | Partner and a lover of all things Handmade. I own TrampLeeDesigns and have the wonderful joy of creating something beautiful each and every day. This Blog is a collection of things I have learned on the road to getting my designs out there. It hasn't been an easy road and if I can make someone else's journey just a bit easier, I am happy. The truth is, I am quite the smart ass. I have a wicked sense of humor and find the most random things hilarious. Oh, and I think I am funny. I laugh at myself or at life, ALL THE TIME. I believe that life doesn't have to be hard, if we work together to make it better.
