I learned a lot from reading this blog

I really like this blog, and it’s so true what you write

“It’s not enough to be good. It’s not enough to be doing the same things as your competitors. You have to do something different”, says Megan Visser on www.handmadeology.com/its-not-enough-to-be-good – and it’s so true.  There are so many great artists and craft makers out there, each showing their wares locally, nationally or worldwide.  You have got to somehow make your products or brand stand out otherwise they can very easily get lost.

Customer service is great, but first you need customers before getting to this stage! You have to think about your target market and what they would want.  Offer them diversity but still keep your design asthetic.  Keep an underlying style that sets your work apart, you signature as it were.  This is what will keep customers coming back and telling others about you.

Last day of Social Media Course and change in blog name


I have been writing this blog for a MBA Course in Social Media, and I have learned so much about blogging and on the subjects that I blogged about.

I am hoping to make my career in social media, and actually, am looking for companies to intern in.

To me, working for a company in their social media department, blogging is about opening the door to the audience, and about knowing your audience.
