Hard work pays off
I've been working really hard to grow my fledgling business on social media. I think it's working. I just need to keep going and be patient.
I'll be honest...I thought I'd sell a few pieces in the first week, but I haven't sold anything yet. I'm gonna turn that disappointment into motivation 🙂
I reached out to some of my favorite instagrammers and struck up a partnership. I think it's going to be a win win for all involved and I'm pretty excited.
Here's the premise...
I make two original stained glass pieces inspired by work these artists have already made and posted.
I send one piece to the artist for them to keep.
The artist holds a giveaway on their page for the other piece.
I send the winner their piece and ask them to post about me
But here's the real gem....the artist promotes my page by asking their followers to share my picture for a chance to enter the contest
So now I'm making new friends, getting eyeballs on my page, and driving traffic to my online store. I love networking with other people who are just like me.
This promotion costs a good bit of money, but it seems much better to spend money like this vs paying instagram to promote my page.
I just gotta get that first sale and then I'm on to meeting my next goal!
Btw, here's my latest latest listing
