Marvelous Monday 7/23/12

My goodness, what a weekend it was!!  I spent some amazing time with my family!  Yesterday we actually went to the movies to see Ice Age 3 – it was great!!  Another great movie I would highly recommend for the ENTIRE family to see!
I also was able to start a couple of new projects that I have been setting aside for a while… I’ll show you soon!
Another part of the weekend was spent on ‘re-working’ my business and marketing plan.  I have had to make some really BIG changes lately in the way I do business.  I currently run Krafty Max Originals (my hand beaded design studio) and also Krafty Max DESTASH (a studio to destash all my ‘extra’ items).  I have a Fan Page, Google+ Page, Twitter Page, and identities on about 5 other social media sites.  Ironically I find that most of my leads come from twitter or more specifically from the tweets that are re-posted via Triberr (please let me know if you would like to learn more about Triberr…. I am ALWAYS interested in gaining new tribe-mates).  The posts that are tweeted and re-tweeted are primarily posts from this blog!  It is odd to me that with that ‘big’ of a footprint on the social media sites I still get the majority of my leads – ultimately – from my blog – the words that I write!
So, as part of this ‘re-working’ I will be focusing more on my blog, and more on the actual WORDS I write for a while to see if that really does make a difference.  I also think that getting back to the Marketing Plan I had a year ago will help too – that is a topic for another day.
What about you?  Do you see a high number of views, sales, hits or such from one site over another?
Over the weekend I was able to start a new beadwoven bracelet… here are the colors!!
Any guesses what it will be??  Watch my Facebook Fan Page or my Google+ Page throughout the day of row updates and watch this bracelet grow ‘right before your eyes’!
And to kick off the Re-Launch of Krafty Max Originals I have decided to give-a-way this amazing necklace that I created.  Want to win??? Click on the photo and you’ll go to the entry post….
So, for today, that is enough… I think?!?!  So, I’ll leave you with this thought….
Sow good services; sweet remembrances will grow them.

    I’m glad you were able to spend some quality time with your family and get out to see a movie! The newest Ice Age looks pretty good.

    I use a lot of platforms to advertise my business and jewelry, but I can’t say I’ve seen many sales from what I post-Although I definitely need to be better with all that o.O

    Congratulations on your re-invention!

      Yes, it is hard to find the balance of all the TIME I spend marketing my creations and the actual impact, but when tracking my views it is simple to see the views pick up!

      Just keep it going, it will work!!
