Day Two

Got a few hits on my new blog last night.  That is exciting.  It is hard to get your products out there into the wide world so that people know you.  Here are a few things that I have been reading about to help with this.

1. Keep all your brand names the same. 
                   Blog Name
                   Etsy Name
                   Email Name
                   Business Card name
This makes it much easier for people when they google you and you are likely to get hits in at least one place

2. Advertise anywhere you can
                    This new blog for example
                    For the old ladies at the local craft fair (make sure they all leave with your website and email.  Most of them will likely never venture there because the internet is too difficult to navigate.  But if they pass your card on to their daughters and nieces that might work!)
                    At local businesses.  I am working on getting a few of my kitty cards in veterinary centers around town.
                    Facebook works too but only if your friends check out the links you give them! ;)
                    Comment on other people's blogs and shops.  This may lead them to check yours out too.
3. Do what you love to do and don't worry about the money.  Hopefully if you love your product enough to put it out there eventually someone else will love it too!
