A year ago, I used to bedazzle my shoes, phone cases, clothes, etc. I use to upload pictures on my face book and twitter account. I even put the pictures in its own photo album called “Tootsies Junk”. A lot of females seen my items (goods) and were interested in getting something created just for them. So I started charging to make the customized goods for my face book and twitter friends. I was getting more business than I expected because once I made something for friends they referred me to others. I didn’t have any business cards or a website to advertise my goods to other people. My advertisements are usually by word of mouth and I knew that wasn’t enough. So, I decided to make a face book page specifically for Tootsies Junk. The face book page is a page where I can post photos and information about my business. Face book will also advertise the page to all face book users for a fee every day. I couldn’t afford to pay for the advertisements so I decided to get business cards made and share the link to my face book and twitter friends. It was a very easy strategy and it started to get my business name out in my city. My customers were telling their cousins, friends, etc. about my business and that got me business. Now my business just stands as a small local business because I do not have the time to really put much effort into it due to school and work. Even though I have a busy schedule, I would like to expand my business.
