ENJOY THE PROCESS
All righty that is easier said than done... Let's be real! We all, myself included, have a million and one things on our plate. I love writing books as blog posts but I think I'm going to try out a simpler approach to blogging. I should start with researching other blogs I love or NAH, I'll just dive in not organized in TYPICAL TORI FASHION.... Just going for it. So here is the deal. SIMPLE IT IS!
I HOPE TO WRITE ONE BLOG POST A MONTH AS A RECAP <---- PUTTING THAT OUT THERE SO Y'ALL CAN HOLD ME TO IT ;)
EACH BLOG POST WILL COVER THE GIRL BOSS TIPS I INCORPORATE INTO MY LIVE VIDEOS EVERY MONDAY ON INSTAGRAM, POP UP MARKET TIPS, AND WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING. CHECK MY EVENTS TAB TO WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
RECAP OF EVENTS PAST +POP UP TIPS
PAST SINCE JUNE 15th
- Pop up @ Pet Wants Lexington - love the quaintness of the location and store GREAT TRAFFIC FOR MY PRODUCT. TIP: for finding the best times/day/months of the year to do an event? Honestly it's a process of trial and error and will come with time. Keep in mind where your customer might be on any given day, say on a nice sunny day. For me a lot of dogs went to the dog park that day which made for a little slower day. Don't fret... bring something to work on!
-Pop up @ Southern Barker- A to die for dog store! -All the cute dog accessories and household products. Amazing traffic due to social media help. TIP: MAKE A FACEBOOK EVENT. -Post several times on social media to create awareness. If the location will make an event on their facebook page, as well, even better!
-Pop up @ Ashland Henry Clay Estate for YAPPY HOUR <--- NEXT ONE AUGUST 8th (for INFO CALL THE ESTATE 859-266-8581)
-Beautiful Location -Shaded for pups -Wine for dogs and humans -appetizers for humans and a few of my favs Pet Wants and Piper Pals Pet Care were there with products and treat samples. TIP: As a new business find other new events that are just starting out or start your own event. This will lower the cost of entering and give y'all a chance to make changes and work together and I LOVE LOVE LOVE community opportunities. PS.... bought the wagon from Walmart for 40$ and it was a game changer. ONE TRIP TO THE CAR!!!! (LINK BELOW)
-Pop up @ Lexington Makers Market 2Xs <----- NEXT ONE AUGUST 11th 8:30-1:30 First time and TONS of people. SECOND TIME WAS MY BIGGEST SALES DAY YET! Traffic is usually my main focus however that's not everything. It's about meeting people as well, TALK TO THEM. However this event was great for the teaching side of my business. EXPOSURE EXPOSURE EXPOSURE. TIP:Don't give up because your sales are low. You'll get clients afterwards with online sales. Also word to the wise stick to a white tent black ones are so hot. Also get an eye catching sign to capture attention.
-Girls Night "In" Promotion @ The Studio Lex- Some sneaks of the first Girls Night in! Want to paint at a cute location? All materials provided?

GIRL BOSS TIP RECAP
-Just go for it! Put yourself out there and take the leap!
-Cold calling- pick up the phone introduce yourself as a local to Lexington or your area and talk about your product with passion. This will get the conversation started for whatever you want to call about. Setting up a pop up in a store, creating a collaboration ect...
-Social media organizing- It's a process and keep in mind baby steps count. Use apps that help you organize a months worth of posts. Then take it a day at a time. Schedule 5 hours to make 15 posts. Makes your life simpler. I PROMISE... I should listen to myself more often.
