I’ve been designing Showit website templates for eight long years. My first few didn’t sell….at all. I think I went three years with just one sale….and I made the mistake of telling the customer she could pay half upfront and then paypal me the remaining balance a month later. Do you think she ever paid […]
As a creative, I know firsthand how crippling it can be. I felt it this morning, showing my work to friends (it’s weird that I feel it less when showing work to strangers than people close to me – but I’m sure that’s an entirely different set of issues!)
I did a big thing last fall. I bought a house. It’s still to this day one of the most rewarding (and also the most stressful) things I’ve ever done. I knew I was fully DONE AND OVER apartment living, and knew that buying a house was the right step forward. I’ll admit, I watch […]
Make sure the product(s) are 100% finished before you start planning the launch I know this sounds like no-brainer, but in the past I’ve chosen a launch date before the templates were actually finished and it didn’t go that well. I thought that giving myself a deadline would help keep me accountable, but in reality […]
Passive income is tricky. When you’re making steady, consistent revenue it can be life changing (read more about that here). I started selling Showit website templates about 4 years ago and it took a while to really get into the groove of things. I built a shop page on my website (sales were done via […]
As a creative business owner I know firsthand how easy it is to get overwhelmed with client work. It’s a downward spiral that can be very difficult to pull yourself out of. Over the past few years in business I have developed systems to help keep every project on track. A very large part of […]
Looking back at 2020…whew. What can I even say. To say that the year was fully of ups and downs, struggles, and just in every way was unpredictable sounds like SUCH an understatement and quite frankly an insult to those who have truly had one of the worst years of their lives. I do not […]
Hire a brand photographer This is hands down my biggest tip! Leave it up to the professionals. They have the proper equipment, experience, and best of all just plain know what they’re doing. Professional photos convey authenticity, confidence, professionalism, and show potential clients that you believe so much in what you do that you’ll happily […]
Whether you’re just starting out, or you’ve been in the biz for a few years, there are things worth it to invest in. They’ll help build longevity, scaleability and legitimacy. Take it from me, I waited a few years to invest in a few of these things, and hands down I wish I had done […]
2020. Where to begin? Until this year, my business has been 80% custom branding/website design, and 20% has come from template sales. When Covid hit, my world was turned upsidedown. I was FLOODED with inquiries from current, past, and prospective clients, all looking to update their site or get something up and running to maintain […]
