Design Shop is on a roll. For a start up company at least.
So far to date, we have submitted our business plan (thank g-d !!). We have two anchor clients, consistent referrals and a several handfuls of exciting jobs on the go, both commercial and residential, and most importantly happy clients !!
Our website is up, sans gallery (for now), but testimonials really help! Facebook is active and is currently in the lead for most "likes" in Winnipeg for Interior Designers - woot woot!! Our twitter account is activated, + strangely has been behaving as a very useful research tool for social media knowledge. Our Google+ page is created, and as of today we have 39 "folllowers" (or whatever those people are called?). We have fancy hot pink and white lawn signs that are scattered throughout the Linden Woods and Tuxedo areas of Winnipeg.
We both have instagram accounts and pretty comprehensive linkedin profiles, located in our personal profiles on our website. Amanda's more of an open book in this case, while Deb is being coy (oxymoron) and kept her instagram private... How exclusive!
We are missing a youtube account, but after today's social media class with Mr. B. Hopper, we will get on it on the ASAP as it is apparently tres importante. Houzz is weak as is Pinterest... but getting organized takes time...
We have found ourselves on the CTV Morning Show, Winnipeg, "Help from Your Home" (read: free advertising !!) pretty much every second Friday... A very unexpected advertising treat for two newbies on the design block. Lucky girls we are indeed !!
Annnndddd, today, we finally received our business cards!! Die cut circles, bright white, pearly linen. One version in gold foil and the other in hot pink. These are one of our favorite branded babies. Let us know what you think !! We are so excited to give them out, so even if you don't give a crap, need a designer or even like Interior designers, ask us for one - it will make our day :)
