"Just get online" is what everyone kept saying to me. So I started with Google My Business. Downloaded the app from the play store and started filling in the blanks which were...mostly the pics of what I trying to show off.
This got me going, requested a code and Tina flower designs was recognised as a google business.
So then it was filling in my address details which I have to be honest got me uncomfortable so I just pinned my location as the region. Heaton Mersey, Stockport.
Then I moved onto to Facebook, Instagram and twitter which really brought everything together giving me ideas to present my work in the best way.
Before I knew it i was up and running generating likes, followers and the best bit, contact from new customers.
The hardest part was coming up with a website so I spent hours just educating on YouTube on what the most effective website would be. I'm serious so whilst I wanted to keep my costs down and build something without paying buckets for a web designer, so going with Wix.com was the best move. The wix ADI is what I used to build the site drawing on the information that I already had and slowly with tweaks and changes, I finally ended up with the site that best reflected my work. YouTubers really make a difference as there are experts that speak directly to you.
There are plenty of free web builders out there all with pros and cons but for me, www.wix.com really suited me and that's the one I recommend. Yes there is subscription but its reasonable and you earn it back with a high quality website.
