July Checklist

I know it can be hard to keep up. Believe me, I know. But I can tell you from experience, that being organized and having a checklist is one way to start tackling the hard stuff.

What I like about a list, is that when I get a brain freeze and don't know what I should do that day, I can get some ideas from my task list and see what I can wrap my thoughts around and actually get something done, rather than sit there wondering……. yes sometimes sitting there …

Pitching for Holiday Gift Guides

I know, I know, it's only the end of June, but Holiday Gift Guide submissions are starting now…….so get on it sister, as it will end in July. 

This can be a great way to get into magazines that might be more challenging for you in the "everyday" editorial world.  Gift guides often put in items that appeal to their audience, but might not have a good place in the monthly magazines.  Magazines try to appeal to a broad audience with the gift guides, so I would suggest being bold …

Are you in love with your blog? 

That might sound like a funny question, but if you aren't, you may find figuring out what to blog about a big bore.

Finding more buyers

Building your buyer black book (AKA your bible of potential customers) can be a tedious task if you don't know where to look.

Be sure you know who your target market is, and where they live. ONLY spend time looking for stores in those specific areas. Anywhere else is a waste of time.

Only you can know the story behind who you sell to and where they live……Give it some thought.  If you sell a high end product in the $250+ range, then one thing to consider is where people live who …
