TEN TOP MISTAKES WEB DESIGNERS MAKE
ANITA's COTTAGE INDUSTRY Web-related RECOMMENDATIONS:
1.) GET CLIENTS by SURFING THE NET. Read the great writers, bloggers, EMAIL them, make pals. Send them samples of your stuff. Be their student. Great websites are those that belong to great teachers. FOLLOW YOUR PASSION. Google POODLES or TUSCANY. Find what you love.
2.) Subscribe to lists that reflect your personal interests. I started with goat care, soap making, frugal housekeeping and political leftist rant. Those four. You make pals quickly. I escalated to ALIENS and MYSTIC LISTS.
3.) VISIT OTHERS! Start dropping in at blogs, writing to your new pals who quickly realize what you do or sell & become your clients.
4.) FIND YOUR TRADE BEADS, what you can give. For me it was FREE SEMINARS, on every subject,MARRYING WELL,GARDENING, gifting garden seeds and the DAILY POWER HOURS, STARPower Map of the Month, (an E-file that arrives in your mailbox once a week. Sunday nite.) Other ideas: sharing used books.
5.) Stay in touch. For that you need a good EMAIL CLIENT, one that holds your chums' names in alphabetical order, allows you entry to sketch in bio-details on them, (sister is in prison, hubby a plumber) stuff you might otherwise forget.
6.) Build your own send-out LISTS. The GARDENER list the POLITICAL LEFTIES list. I even have a UFO list! Collect articles and send them! THAT's stayin' in touch!
7.) Compose colorful ADS and send those out to your lists occasionally.
8.) POST files that are half articles of wit and wisdom and half an advertisement for your services out in CYBER SPACE at your own WEBSITE. Then, reach out to CRAIGS LIST's immense readership. Post a BAITED HOOK to get them to visit your site, complete with live links. You will attract potential readers/ clients to your WORK.
9) Read up on the nuances of CRAIGS LIST. and USING CRAIGS ADROITLY.
Reason why I DID IT all MYSELF: PRESSURE! CLOCK was TICKING! The day I found out I was going to be on JUDGE JUDY, (a client sued me for web-publishing her tale of love gone sour -- I never mentioned her real name,) only mentioned her cyber monniker, FLAME! a made up name,)-- and I foresaw myself in front of ten million folks, I knew I needed a website. I was going to be on nat'l TV! I'd name drop my NEW WEBSITE's URL. So my daughter, Paloma, always a big spender, a gal who'd pay 5$ for a salad (!) bought me a domaine name, & I threw together the LUCK IN LOVE website! I just stated what was in my heart as a preamble and put a LINK to an old INDEX PAGE I had index 3. And BA BA BOOM! I was off to the races. Of course my verbal, on camera URL DROPPING was caught by Judge Judy's film editor and the LOVE GURU pitch and hustle was left on the cutting room floor. Paloma inspired me designing her own site, BIG APPLE BABIES, (she's a kiddie photog) and if SHE COULD do it, I knew I COULD!
