other SNAP! posts
I got to meet so many fantastic people while I was at SNAP!,
and I also got to attend a bunch of really great classes.
there were a lot of choices (I had a hard time choosing!),
a lot of amazing speakers, TONS of information.
some of my favorite classes:
Basic Blogging Tips for Online Success
even though I've been blogging for a while, I really enjoyed this class;
it was a great refresher, plus some new perspectives to think about.
oh, and they put the notes from their class online,
so I don't have to share all of my crazy notes! ;)
How To Do It All
I really struggle with time management
& getting everything done, so this class was for me!
> stick with your goals & be specific with your time
> make wise choices before taking on too much..
> set time limits for yourself!
> be realistic - budget your time.
be consistent, but don't overdo it.
> don't put your blog before your family.
> be flexible!
Running a Handmade Business
you can read about Amy's talk here.
> sometimes you have to learn
what works for you/your customers
by trial & error.
> stay on top of trends;
they change frequently.
> try to find a good photographer
to work with.
> set yourself hours to work.
> be open to constructive criticism.
> find the things that inspire you & do them.
> don't be afraid to up your prices; it has
to be worth it. don't sell yourself short!
> sometimes you have to take a chance
& invest in your business.
> be willing to give a LOT.
everything comes back to you
> learn as you go & be patient
with yourself. be open to new ideas,
but stay focused on what works.
that's just a taste of things I learned;
I have pages & pages of notes!
do any of these tips stand out to you?
what are you most interested in learning about
