Over the past year, I've shared multiple posts every week on marketing and business - virtually anything I hear about or have learned over the years that will help you even out the rough spots in your business. It's been a tough year, but the finish line is only eleven days away, and there's a clean slate for 2022.
But coming down to the wire - don't miss opportunities to set yourself up for a strong start into the new year.
People will forget what you said. They will forget what you did.
But they will never forget how you made them feel.
The key is when a customer walks away, thinking, 'Wow, I love doing business with them,
and I want to tell others about the experience."
Last but not least - this week is always a little insane wrapping up last-minute orders and client needs. But once everything is done - take the time between the holidays to simply kick back and chill. Sure, you still need to think about the business and your future, but you also need to recharge your battery!
That means you need to focus just on yourself a little. I'm not suggesting you ignore your family or friends - take the time to appreciate the road ahead!
You can't create images that tug at people's hearts if you're own heart isn't in it!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
