For a while now, I’ve been debating what to do with my website. My goal has always been to have a website that incorporates an online shop with a blog, press info, wholesale info, and all that other good stuff all in one place.
I was lucky enough to be chosen to be the subject of the first business workshop over at Ace Department yesterday. First of all, if you’re a business owner, get over there and sign up – it’s in beta so it’s free right now, and those ladies know their stuff! The point of the workshop was to discuss where I want to go with my business in regards to my online presence. I can’t tell you how helpful everyone’s advice was, and now I really feel like I have a concrete plan.
As soon as I can get it together (hopefully in the next two weeks), I’ll be re-launching bobalookids.com with a little bit of an overhaul. I’m planning on making the website a landing spot for customers where they can read the blog, shop, or learn more about my brand all in one place. Want a sneak preview? Here ya go:
So what does this mean for this blog? I’ll still be writing a blog, but it’s going to be more geared toward my customers instead of other handmade business owners. I haven’t decided for sure what to do with my existing blog content. Either I’ll move it over to the new website, but post more customer-related content from now on, or I’ll move it to it’s own blog.
This is one decision I haven’t completely made, so I’d love your input. I’d be happy to maintain a second blog about the business side of things if there’s enough demand, but my posting schedule would probably be a little lighter (once or twice a week). What do you guys think? I learned how useful other people’s points of view can be when making big decisions, so advise away!
