a peek into my photo shoot with one of my very favorite wedding suite designs
i forgot how much fun (work, effort, craziness, and mania) goes into re-building a brand. (remember when i used to post all about running an online shop?!) these days i'm working hard on rebuilding my own! finally! #yay. last year i collected all my favorite designs and wedding invitations into an oversized leather portfolio, yet still hardly anyone has actually paged through it. my best clients seem to be found online (hooray! i love you, customers!) thus it's obvious i'm long overdue for a new website, better photos, a new logo, and a shop of ready-made designs for clients to hurry up and pick a party invitation without too much hassle. not everyone is gung-ho on waiting around for custom designs, so i am hoping to solve that dilemma. i'm gearing up. slow and steady, i'll get there. it's a big process, especially for a one woman show. thankfully my excitement is giving me adrenaline!
here is what i've managed thus far.
+ full fledged affair with instagram @martawrites
+ just put the finishing touches on a new mini mart shop logo
+ photographing my own designs (catching the sunlight is the trickiest!)
+ cropped, tweaked, photoshopped said product photos
+ uploaded photos into online shop
here is what i still have to do. (the short list)
+ update all that product verbiage in the shop
+ figure out prices, shipping postage, nitty gritty details
+ update main website / design another new logo
+ print new business cards, packaging, etc.
+ create even more products for shop (ideas are rolling in)
+ market, promote, create buzz, spread the word!
