5 Things to do today for your business
1. Leverage your community
You don’t have to think big when it comes to your marketing efforts. Think locally. What’s going on in your community?
Sponsor something or give back. Get to know your ideal customer and think about how and where they spend their time. Then search for opportunities to get in front of your customer with your message.
I’m a huge fan of networking. I don’t think there is any better way to build a business.
Networking requires a time commitment and it doesn’t provide instant gratification, but a strong network is one of the greatest assets any business person can have.
3. Ask for referrals
Don’t be shy about asking for customer referrals. The majority of people say they are willing to provide a referral if asked, but very few take the initiative to do it on their own.
If you aren’t asking for them, you are missing opportunities.
4. Build relationships
It is a lot less expensive to keep a customer than it is to get a new one. That’s why establishing strong relationships with your customer base is crucial. One of the ways you can do that is by keeping in touch with people through email marketing. Ask customers for their email address when they visit your store or website. Then, make your communications informative, helpful and professional.
5. Give it away
If someone has the opportunity to experience your product or service, chances are they will want to purchase more.Don’t be afraid to give someone a free trial or a sample. In today’s economy, people are more comfortable purchasing something they have been able to experience first. These ten, inexpensive marketing strategies will help you engage customers, build relationships, and ultimately keep your brand top-of-mind.
Business owners, if that stat doesn't open your eyes to how important an active Social Media plan is then you need to read it again! 71%! That's huge. If you're not taking your S.M serious then it's time to start! Give me a call and I can explain how I can help! ⠀

Welcome to the week of Black Friday sales!
I don’t know about you, but this is always the week that I do most of my Christmas shopping!!! .
This holiday season, stop and think about who you are giving your money to. I always try to support local when I can and support small businesses. Do you know every time I see another order put through on my Etsy shop and every time I see a comment that someone wants to buy something I created, I get excited and happy to be able to share something I worked hard on with you. That doesn’t happen when you shop at Walmart, Winners, or Wayfair. So whether it be from my shop or another local maker, please think about shopping small this holiday season.
Every day of this week, I will be having a day-long sale.
So, here’s Black Monday’s sale:
Two Christmas cards and two Christmas tags for $10!!! .
*Limited quantities - first FIVE people to message me will get this deal. *Shipping within in Canada is $3.
Hope you all have a great week. Check back tomorrow for Black Tuesday’s sale!

Who holds it all together?
Just like the humble paperclip, and oh yes they are brilliant but sometimes, they need to enlist more help when there are too many bits of paper to hold together.
Who are you in your business? HR, IT, Accounts, Projects, Marketing, Development... more?
What about at home? A mother? A father? A daughter? A child? A friend? A sister? A brother? A gym-buff? A dog lover? A yogi?
We all play so many roles in our everyday lives and we are usually super at balancing all of them. We are getting better at asking for help when we need it with family, the house and even our health.
Asking for help in your business takes trust and you have to be ready to let go... but if you in reality, you can't do everything yourself.
If you want to find out about how I can help you lighten your load to ensure you can stay balanced, get in touch today. I would love to support you. .

Hi everyone. Today is the start of @justacard Indie week in support of independent makers and shops. Hello to all my new followers, here is a little intro.
I'm Katie, the maker/illustrator behind Katie Clement Design.
I started my little business when I graduated from uni in 2010 as an additional income for self employment at a textiles design studio I was working at.
I still work full time as a fashion print designer, you can find my work mainly in Dorothy Perkins and Wallis these days, although designs do keep popping up around the world.
I've been living in London for 7 years but originally from Haslemere, Surrey. As you can probably tell from my grid and my product range, I have a bit of an addiction to creating stupidly detailed illustrations of buildings. A fineliner is my tool of choice but love adding a pop of colour to black and white illustrations.
If I'm not working you'll generally find me drinking gin, finding new restaurants in London or off on my travels around the world which is a constant source of inspo.
This photo was taken at the Atelier des Lumieres in Paris, where there is currently an amazing Gustav Klimt exhibition. Go check it out if you can-it closes early Jan!
