It’s been quite a while!

Life took an interesting turn in December where we were forced to bravely start our own Advertising Design and Marketing Agency. We have been doing design and marketing for my jewelry company and when we worked at other firms, but it was finally time to jump. And yes, jumping is scary! We basically started a business from zero or negative numbers. But what we have is many years of valuable experience and skill to offer to other small businesses that want to have professional branding and online marketing work done to make them look as good as any Fortune 500 company. So, we’re five months into this adventure and so far, so good. I think we’ve gotten past the first hurdle to starting out on your own. Fear! It’s a biggie. I’m not going to say I’m never scared. Quite the opposite. I’m a girl who’s careful with my money and I’m used to growing up with parents who worked for large corporations and had their insurance and retirement needs taken care of. Well, that’s just not the way the world turns now, is it? You have to keep reminding yourself to be brave to fight off the urge to freak out. That’s where we are. We have several great clients, we’ve gotten three websites up so far and have taught them about the values of social marketing via Twitter, blogs and Facebook for business. And it’s working! I spend a lot of time learning from webinars and blogs and when you put this information into practice it’s great to see it actually work for your clients. Because in the end, I don’t want to sell them on hiring me and using newfangled tactics to get clients. I want to increase their bottom line and attract new clients to their businesses! Check back, I’ll discuss the good, the bad, and the scary!
