I work from a tiny desk in my living room. My computer has two monitors, two label makers, a wireless keyboard and a mouse attached to it. Other than my special little printer in the basement and shipping supplies that's my entire 'business' operation at BespokePrints.com.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I'm just like YOU!
I have two little kiddos that I love to bits. I need to save for my retirement. I want to do work that I love. I try to exercise and eat healthy. I'm probably just like YOU.
In order for me to be be that person who takes care of her kids, saves for retirement and all that jazz I need to earn money. And to make money, I need to focus on the marketing that helps me find people who like my work and need what I sell. Queue PINTEREST!
Lots of my website traffic comes from Pinterest. Some of my save the date and art print designs have had thousands of not hundreds of thousands of re-pins. I also just LOVE Pinterest and use it for personal things like party planning, recipe finding and interior design ideas. Anyhow, it occurred to me that since I love Pinterest and clearly the people who like to buy my stuff do too that I should make a discount code to say.. THANKS for following me, thanks for pinning my work! I'm looking forward to working with you.
So, I created a little 10% discount coupon to test out my theory. It's for 10% which is basicallywhat I spend on etsy and google ads to get my designs out there. Is it so crazy to think that I can funnel that savings back into YOU, my cool customers, rather than the big giant corporations? I pray it's not wishful thinking.
This discount ONLY applies to invitation design, art map prints and other products in my store. The only thing it DOES NOT apply to is printing and shipping fees.
I spent 30 minutes making a little graphic (look below!) that you can PIN on pinterest. Save it to your board for safe keeping if you're not ready to order yet but maybe in the future. It'll also help me spread the word about my small little business. When you're done that feel free to browse around the site.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.
