Ten days since my last update? Really??? Ooops! So, what have I achieved – lots of things!
I have got myself a new logo and stationary pack that I am thrilled with for a very good price thanks to Isabella via www.fivesquid.com a great site offering services to help your business for very reasonable prices.
I got to work on the idea of creating posters and documents with a WW1 theme and successfully completed my first example, namely that of David Maguire 1892-1916. I have sent the booklets off to be printed and will do the same with posters soon, (I have others I need to work on to include with this order). I have updated the website to include them and am currently working on other products and how to offer them via the website.
This week’s class was dealing with finance (envisage my eyes looking upwards and my hand waving over my head) clueless! I have had dealings with this side of things, I completed a management course many years ago and dealt with this subject in detail, sadly I remember very little.
The class was very interesting and mainly looked into sources of funding and will look more into book keeping next week. I haven’t managed my time very well this week (surprise surprise) and need to look at the book keeping side of things myself. Nice weekend of nights from tonight so guess what I’ll be doing during breaks 😉
I managed to revamp the website to include new logo and have added a product page to display what is on offer although at this time I have only managed to include the WW1 items. Work in progress. I also played about with the About Me section and included an About Business and About you page. I started work on a product guide page, again work in progress. Attempting to get my head around cost etc.
I had my first 'contact entry' today via my website! Unfortunately, the client was Portuguese and that falls out of my comfort zone, namely Ireland and the UK. I was able to reply with suggestions and advice though which felt good. Who knows, they may find their search brings them over here?
It's good to know that people from all over the world can see my website and take an interest 😊
Onwards and upwards!!!
