A CONTEST EVERYONE CAN WIN: I want to build my Facebook page up from 204 likes to 500 as my first goal. Will you help me do it? If you do, you can win the kit I’m showing in this post. The minute we reach that goal I will post a link to the kit on my page as a thank you to everyone that helped as well as to be enjoyed by everyone who joined! So if you have friends that enjoy digital art, please invite them so I can give away at least 500 kits!
I took a great class yesterday from Constant Contact (the people I’ve been paying to host my 5,000+ name mailing list for 3 months, but have never sent out an email to yet!!!) Am I lame or what?! I’m not sure what the hold up has been, but I’m determined to get past it. My darling friend, Karla Dornacher has even agreed to hold my hand through the process so I’m going to take the plunge… very soon…
The conference was actually 2 classes, Social Marketing was the morning topic and Email Marketing the second. Does the word “marketing” scare you? It isn’t my favorite word either, but I realized that if you take the word “marketing” out – it’s really about connecting, I hate to “market” but I LOVE to connect. What’s not to love about connecting with people who share your likes and passions. Connecting with people that enjoy what you do and vice-versa. When I started to think of it in those terms it immediately became much less scary to me.
After listening to Kelly Flint – Constant Contact’s LA Regional Development Director give the presentation, I did a lot of thinking about what I have and haven’t done in the past. She is delightfully hilarious by the way, if you get a chance to go to any seminar she’s teaching do it. You can find her Facebook page by clicking on her name, it’s a live link. Kelly is a wealth of ideas and information and I’ll share bits and pieces of her tips via my twitter feed in the next few weeks. If you haven’t connected with me there it’s TWITTER @audreyjeanne.
Kelly shared a lot of real life stories. While listening to them, it dawned on me, I don’t believe I have ever told anyone that reads my blog that I HAVE a Facebook Page, much less invited you to come visit. I did say I’m at the 101 course level. You can find it here: facebook.com/audrey.jeannes.expressions
I enjoy Facebook because it’s so interactive – much more so than a blog. I would love to dialog with you. I would LOVE to hear about your passions. What arts and crafts are you into? What do you want to learn more about? What are you making and selling or just making to give away?
Do you have friends that love to create with digital art? Are they professional crafters that love to find new things to make, new art that they can use for selling at craft shows? Do you have friends that scour the net for the next hot craft and would love to share what they find? I’d love for you to invite them to come connect with us. I’d love to see what people are doing in their creative spaces and try to encourage you to bring more creativity and beauty into your life. AND I’d love to have you come and post those kinds of things on my Facebook page so we can all go check them out.
Now, if I can figure out how to post a “find me on facebook and twitter button”, I’m in business… Oh Cheryl, are you out there?! (she’s my favorite geek helper!)by
