Thinking of a new business? Then be ready to Learn, Learn, Learn....

By gardnerandhill123, Feb 27 2017 02:35PM

So, thinking of starting your own on-line business? Get fired up and do it…learn as you go and, oh boy, will there be learning?! I’ve learned so much since starting G&H but I still feel like I have so, so much more to learn! I’ve got pretty up to scratch with Twitter, Face book & Instagram and run 6 accounts on these but I still haven’t got to grips with Facebook Ads or Facebook Pixel (annoyingly, the site we use to build our website Webeden doesn’t support Facebook Pixel). I’ve delved a little into Pinterest but this needs a whole new look and there just aren’t enough hours in my day to get my head round this one too! Then there’s building the website, who do you use? Where do you sell? Etsy, Shopify, your own website or somewhere else? How do you keep up your SEO (search engine optimization)? Do you need to write a blog? Do email campaigns? Do you use Hootsuite or Mailchimp? Use both! But, you’ll quickly find that all this takes time, but it is a necessity as it gets your name out there and the more you use these tools, the more you’ll speed up with using them. Alongside all of this, you need to keep up to date with stock, getting orders out, maybe doing fairs, designing new products etc. You do really need to be a jack of all trades and prepared to muck in and learn, learn, learn….
