ANNOUNCEMENT 🎉 I wasn't going to do this, but here we are, & for good reason - I didn't plan on opening up enrollment into content club, the only content + marketing membership for product-based businesses, anymore this year, but the above statement is too true. It’s tough to hear & it’s unfortunately true. Some businesses will survive & thrive these wacky & wild times, & some won't. And I want to help make sure your business is thriving in three months, six months, a year from now. Last week, during one of our workshops within the club, as we were learning all about PR from @brittneyllynn, it all kept coming back to your content & marketing strategy, your messaging, & your visuals. I realized then that I would be doing these small biz's, YOU, a disservice by not offering you a spot in content club, where we literally take care of your photography, copywriting, & more every. single. month. Those with great content across their website, emails & socials will sell more. They'll still be here at this time next year. Those with crappy content that doesn't connect + convert? Well, time will tell. Plain & simple truth. 🎉 So, that brings me to right now… doors are open to Bespoke Content Club for the next week. 🎉 BCC will transform the way you approach your daily, weekly, & monthly marketing to-do's, & will equip you to grow your business with ease & so. much. less. stress. & overwhelm. When you join BCC, you get: 1. Weekly Instagram marketing prompts (that truly don't suck) delivered right to your inbox 2. Access to 10 styled photos a month + 10 CUSTOM BRAND PHOTOS if you join as a VIP member 3. A live workshop with yours truly where we uncover your own Heart of Why, so you can know exactly how to market with more purpose & empathy. This workshop is said to be “business changing.” Their words, not mine, & currently only taught within the inside of BCC. And so much freaking more. DM me with any questions, the link to apply for a limited VIP spot or to join as a base member (only $49/month), or peep the link in my bio for allll the details. If now’s the right time for you, I’ll see you on the inside!
@slightlystationery with what’s on my mind today.✌🏼please freaking vote.✌🏼 aaaaand I wasn’t planning on doing this again this year, but something exciting is happening tomorrow! Any guesses what it could beeeee?! 🧐
It’s the space beyond the horizon that always interests me the most. The space where anything could be, where my imagination can run wild, no constraints, no ceilings, no doubts. I love that space and spend half my days both chasing it and reveling in that magical little feeling of what lies beyond... anything. ✨ 📷 for @belleandunionco, who always gets my heart and brain and soul
Several weeks ago I had just wrapped a few interviews when I got home and plopped down in my big white chair. Something was off. The interviews went fine, I was impressed, the right things were said, blahblahblah. But something was off. As I was sitting there reflecting and ruminating, I started to pray that if this gut feeling was truth, I would pay attention to it. That if the right person for the role I was looking to hire for was out there, God would make it so freaking apparent that I couldn’t even attempt my typical back and forth of “welll... eeee... I’m not suuuurreeee.” Within minutes of that fervent prayer, these two showed up within an hour of the other. Both in my DM’s, and this sounds weird and cheesy, but both instantly in and on my heart, too. Both unexpected. Both planting quick and deep seeds. I knew immediately. Meet Brooke on the left and Amanda on the right, the two newest ladies to join the Verb House team. 🎉 Literal answered prayers. They’re each amazing in their own right, and after just a couple of official weeks together I’ve already been amazed and beyond thankful. They’re brilliant and kind and brilliant and FUN (a key value of business & life over here) and I’m just so dang thankful. There’s a lot of goodness on the horizon for this little team and our clientfriends. 🌞 I don’t keep my gut out of business. I don’t keep my heart out of it. As my dad says, “I’m not corporate.” Listen to that certain feeling of yours, peeps. You always know. ✨
My girl @brittneyllynn and I were recording a podcast episode yesterday when we went off on a few different tangents together... At one point Brittney asked me what can product based businesses be doing right now to ensure success (or something like that, idk, you’ll have to listen to the episode when it comes out... all I can really remember is my tangent that ensued 😂) and instantly it was like the gate flew open and I wanted to scream from the rooftops: FREAKING IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOS AND VISUALS. Look, I’m not “mean yelling” at you product peeps here. I’m “really freaking lovingly yelling” at you. I’m gonna save my in depth tangent on this topic for another day, but after our conversation yesterday & shooting Bespoke Content Club content all day long today, that fire in my belly about all the crappy photos and content out there is LIT. As an e-commerce based business, you have almost nothing besides your product photos and visuals to represent your items and company well. And if they suck, if they’re not communicating the immense value in your work and products, if your customer can’t instantly envision those items in her life... welp. How’s that Shopify dashboard lookin lately? 🤨 Your photos and your brand visuals matter. I will say this forever. And in a wacky as heck year when you’ve realized you’ve got nothin but your own online shop and website to fully rely on, well, they matter even more. Alright, I can feel my blood pressure rising and it’s way past this grandmas bedtime, so peace and blessings, my friends. See you on the next tangent! 📷 for Bespoke Content Club member, @whisperingwillow
Lordy loo, it’s been a month. Between surgery and recovery that took (/ is taking) longer than I expected, food poisoning or a tough ole bug, the state of America (wtf), this freakin pandemic... August was a gosh dang month. @haveanicedayy_ pretty much sums it up - creativity and innovation (my favorite) has felt a bit (or a lot) absent lately. I’ve been doin this whole thing long enough now to know that the inspiration will come again, the creative juices will flow freely soon, and the joys that come from coffee hangs and photo producing will return soon (well, maybe not the coffee hangs...) I’m welcoming this new month with a fervor and choosing to believe the wackiness of August is officially behind us. So hello September, please be kind to all of us. And may the ideas flow wildly. ✌🏼
