Self-employment: gaining customers, advertising, and the importance of social media

Thursday, February 11, 2016

social media has been instrumental in the success of my business. it's changed quite a bit over the last 5.5 years that i've had my jewelry biz, but it's still just as, if not more, important. i use social media to gain customers, keep existing customers coming back, engage with my audience, and create the "need" for people to buy.

most days i dress pretty darn casual. that's what i'm most comfortable in, and let's be honest, the only things that see me for most of the day are my cats and they don't judge (well, at least not based on my clothing choices). so it's usually jeans, oversized sweaters, or tee shirts and cardigans, rarely with accessories. so when it comes time for the weekends, i like to change things up a bit.

you guys know i love my candles, and this one doesn't disappoint. i received it from a girlfriend for my birthday and have burned it minimally because i don't want it to run out! it fills the whole office with the best smell, and the glass jar is beautiful, too!

Office Tools I Use Daily

i very rarely work in quiet, so i love having this speaker to play my music or podcasts. plus, it's portable, so i can take it from my bedroom, to my office, to the kitchen without being interrupted!

i was pleasantly surprised by the weather Chicago had for us upon returning from Florida! after dressing for spring for a few days, i was dreading having to get back into my winter boots and heavy jacket, but we've been hangin' out in the 40's and it has been wonderful. it's also a good reason to start pulling out some of my Spring accessories. i'm starting to get to that point where i'm actually looking forward to integrating some more color into my wardrobe. i go into serious hibernation in the winter and wear almost exclusively neutrals, but the warmer temps usually make me reach for my softer hues and even a little pattern (!).
