In today's Episode, Veronica Staudt is taking you with her behind the scenes of her creative business, Vintage Meet Modern. She talks about her secrets on how to talk about your creative product. The not so pretty behind the scenes of selling physical products is getting out on the table, why you should show the whole process that goes into making and selling your creative work and not just the picture-perfect images. Plus we'll touch on how to handle things professionally, gracefully and successfully.
Takeaways from today's show:
- Take a look at how people talked about their creative work in the past. Do your research and find out what you have in common with the great names of the past and then turn the words you find describing their work into something that is true for your creative work too. Don't just take a look at one person, that is defined by one historian, but look around and pull together everything you find matching your work and message.
- Stay true to your creative work, don't feel bad to send people to someone else when your not offering what they want and need.
- Think about how you can add in an easy service that connects well with the creative work your offering. For example, Veronica is helping her customers find the right accessories for an outfit they want to wear to a special occasion. The clients send in a photo of the outfit, and she'll send back a few accessories options that would enhance the outfit. t
- Use your smartphone in a smart way and make it your command central to your creative business. Everything can be tied together their so you have all vital information, communication channels and programs working on the go.
