Being able to create and share free printables on WordPress is the perfect way to build trust with your audience. You’re giving away something and providing knowledge. Technically, I went backwards so to speak. The only free content that I had was on here and the blog. There were no digital products for people to preview if my quality of work was worth the amount I charged. That wasn’t my approach. I’m more of a “show you that I am an expert with my knowledge” and that would in turn will make the sales for me.
So recently our Pinterest got a little makeover…ok, so a major makeover. Our Pinterest Pinboard cover got a bright new makeover, and I’ll be sharing that with you today because several of our followers were commenting on our page and photos asking how we did it. First, I want to point out that the inspiration came from Bauble Bar’s Pinterest board. One of our fellow Pinners shared Stripes & Sequins link with notes on how to do revamp. Grace is the social media manager for Bauble Bar, and our graphic designer Mary followed Grace’s footsteps to create the final product.
Infographics have become all the rage in the last year. They break down a variety of topics from social media, sports and more. I love this female entrepreneur infographic. Female owned businesses are on the rise all across the globe. Everyday, I see more of my fellow peers starting their own businesses. I’m proud that my state of Texas has a high percentage of budding female business owners. What are your thoughts on the growing number of female business owners?
Entrepreneur Magazine put out a map of the best states for small businesses and entrepreneurs to reside. I have heard numerous times that Oklahoma City is thriving for small businesses. However, they didn’t included what they used to measure their rating. Every city and state is what you make of it. It does help to live in a city with low cost of living and great networking possibilities.
I have thought of moving to San Francisco numerous times over the past two years. California received a “D,”but I can understand for so many reasons why the state got such a low lettering: cost of living, taxes, and much more. San Fran is a great place for the tech community with big companies like Twitter, Square and Instagram starting there. I currently reside in Texas, and it works well for my business. When building a company you have to remember, there are several variables to apply to your living situation.
What did your state rate in best cities for small business? Are you planning on moving if the new state rates well?
