Marketing… A Home for Your Name
Now that you are beginning to get your game plan down, you will need to have a home to house all your information. The best thing to do? Have a website!
- But I’m not published!
- But I don’t have a storefront!
- But I don’t have any clients!
- But I don’t have a lot of merchandise!
It doesn’t matter! You NEED a place to call home. You NEED a place to where everyone and anyone can find you. You NEED a place where YOU control the information that is being put out.
Trust me, people will look you up. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE!, Googles everything this day and age. Do you want them to look you up and see ‘the other you’ that you found in your initial Google search? NO, you want them to find you and all the amazing things you have to offer. So give yourself a placed to call home.
It doesn’t have to be fancy either. A landing page works miracles until you are ready to expand. A simple… Hi! You’ve found my page and this is what I’m up to. With a great profile picture and maybe a few social media links is all you need to get started.
It doesn’t have to be expensive either! WordPress, Weebly, and Wix are a few websites out there that are FREE. Yes, FREE!!! And who doesn’t like freebies? No one, that’s who. They all have a learning curve, but with a bit of time… and maybe some YouTube help… you can get a website up and running.
Don’t forget your name!!! Remember looking around seeing if “you” are available? Try to find something consistent across all platforms and then secure them all. I have done this on everything I knew was out there, whether I use it or not. Then when a new social media comes available, I secure that as well. Do I use them all? No, BUT I do not promote the ones I’m not active on.
Once you have a website secured, you are on your way to building a platform with a solid foundation!
Until next time…
