Can we just agree, this D.E.Y. thing isn't working?
Welcome Weary Creator of Amazing Things
You’ve finally found the place where you can hurl yourself off of that mad, mad D.E.Y. (Do EVERYTHING Yourself) not-so-merry-go-round

It’s time to end that nightmare struggle between creating the art and running the business. You need time to create, but your creative time seems to be sucked up by a never-ending to do list that probably looks something like this…

  • Order/Purchase materials
  • Apply to shows
  • Pack for shows
  • Make sure your booth looks great
  • Unpack after shows

  • Contact said followers

  • Post to Facebook (on your business page, NOT your personal page)
  • Tidy up your creative space
  • Take pictures
  • Somehow get said pictures online
  • Respond to emails
  • Create (shouldn’t this at least be in the top three?)
There is so much to do, how can you possibly do it all without sacrificing your image?

You can’t. But together, we can.

It’s a bit of a change in mindset, but it won’t take long and you’ll see the payoff. You will appeal to not just more customers, but the right kinds of customers (you know, the ones who actually buy) without selling your soul.

I can’t help you unpack after shows

But I will get you to the place where, as you’re unpacking, people are taking a look at your website, signing up for your email list, finding out where you’re going to be next, and calling you because they can’t stop thinking about that piece they wish they’d bought. It’s a matter of turning your personality, style, outlook, and truth into an image that people will need to own a piece of. I’ll show you how to build a following and keep them interested, without turning you into a contrived marketing machine.

You need help

And I’m not talking about that well-meaning spouse, your high-schooler, your best friend, or your neighbor who has a full-time job but ‘does this on the side’. I’m talking about outside help focused on organization and direction, making sure your image doesn’t suffer by taking shortcuts that embarrass you. Marketing done right is simple and efficient and should pay for itself. It’s what represents you when you’re not there, so it’s kind of a big deal.

We Should Talk

It all starts with a comprehensive consultation. If those words scared the hell out of you and you immediately thought “No Way, Sounds Expensive, I Can’t Afford It!”, skip this form and call me today. That kind of thinking will suck the wind right out of your artistic little sails. We will change that mindset, change your image, and change your business.
