How very clever.

Smart, smart.

Unlike MY marketing plan, which is virtually non-existent. 

My plan consists of "re-listing" an item or two on Etsy  - in hopes that a future buyer will see the item as it is relisted and before it is quickly pushed to the bottom of Etsy by other listings.  Pretty futile marketing attempt, now that I think about it. 

I also have this clickable ad out there where I get a few hits.  (Thanks Kat and Kristin)

My personal goals for the week:  (1) work on marketing plan (2) paint more art.

That is after I vaccuum up the dog hair (daily!  Does anyone else have a lab that is shedding right now?!) and watch a few tennis matches (all three kids are playing tennis this season).

Enjoy your day!

Pin It!

You are right, those new listings are like rapid fire on Etsy. Good luck with your marketing plan. I don't really have on either.

I'm still trying to figure out a business! Good luck with your plan. We have a chocolate Lab so I know your {vacuuming} pain.

A good friend owns a bakery, and she's always said the fun part is the baking & decorating, the hard part is the business end of things. Good luck with your marketing plan.

It's nice to have kids who all play the same sports. My boys both play lacrosse, but the younger one is considering playing both baseball & lacrosse this season. We'll see.

I used to do marketing and it can sometimes be tough to set yourself apart! I love the bike shop's idea, very clever! Hmm, wonder how your neighbors will feel when they see that you've decorated the outside of your house with all of your beautiful paintings?! ;-) Good luck with your plan,I wish you much success!

And what? Your dog only sheds at certain times of the year?! Not fair, ours shed constantly!
