It’s, “Crazy, Fun, & Exciting” to think about how I set out to become my own client. I turned a brand & marketing website into an art gallery. It was not easy, but this place is starting to look like a real designer art gallery.
It was less than four months ago this website spent the past ten years as my business branding and development site.
You can find years of blogging on the thoughts and ideas on branding, marketing, social media and all things to do with business. Now an online art gallery? Really? You are here. You are reading. It really happened.
I am still working on a referral basis with my work in helping build and grow business, products and people in the efforts of marketing. The truth is very few of my clients found me through my business website. I never really took my website serious unless I had a story to tell. I enjoyed playing on it, writing but my work was away from my own website.
When you are referred by a client they do the talking for you which lead to new business. I am grateful and thankful for that. But now TA-DA an online art gallery which requires me to be in this website daily working myself silly.
When I starting thinking of my art business I jumped in, rewrote, revamped and rebuilt this website to actually gain a following, customers and sales. After all that is what I have been doing for years for other people. I told myself, “Elizabeth your are my 80k client. Give her your best.”
It has been a long few months of being both the artist and the marketing team. Here I am and truly it’s, “Crazy, Fun & Exciting” to begin to see the fruits of my labors. I am self-funding this business venture. Thus I am carrying all the workings in and around the creative design, artful ideas and business savvy.
I wish I could hand hold every artist that has reached out to me asking for help, asking all the questions on how to market and brand their business. Oh boy. If only they had the time I have been blessed to have. Hours a day.
Very few people see the hours behind the scenes. Some days 12 hours. I get this and understand this having worked in marketing. Yes it does come easier when you know the steps, the time, and have ideaphoria off the charts.
Yes, “Crazy, Fun & Exciting”
