I'll show you 10 ways you can get more peepers on your art.
More eyeballs = more awareness.
Awareness = purchases.
Purchases = more money for that pizza you've been craving.
What if I told you, that Pinterest is a magical bonding ground? I'm serious! There's something cool about going to your favorite author's Pinterest, and discovering that they have an obsession with dark chocolate, obscure Welsh whiskeys, or colorful ponies... and oh. my. goodness... so do you! Best news, you can create those connections with your audience too, and I can help you.
Psssst. You. With the reheated coffee... yeah you.. c'mere. What if I told you, your husband is wrong. You DEFINITELY need a new coffee mug. I know he's told you that your mug obsession is unhealthy, but that's because he's a muggle. Sorry. It's true. Magical people know that coffee tastes 237% better in a fun mug. It's a scientific fact or something. And luckily, I just so happen to make cute mugs.
Once upon a time, I signed up for a free trial of Skillshare. But clever beasties that they are, the free trial had me hooked. A world of classes at my fingertips for one subscription fee? Sold! But the more classes I took, the more I discovered... I wanted to teach! So one crisp October, while normal people were consuming obscene amounts of candy, I created my first class about hand lettering.
Hiiiiiiii I'm Amanda Sue!
Butcha probably guessed that already. Just in case we haven't been properly introduced, pull up a rocking chair on my virtual porch, and let's chat.
I rebel against niches. I don’t want to be just teach Pinterest, or just do hand lettering. And rumor has it, you feel the same way too! A wee unicorn colt just talked to me about you and here's what else he said...
>> Don't want to be a "starving artist" because hello... pizza?
>> Want to try new things, but you tell yourself that you don't have time.
>> Struggle to share what you're working on, because you're never sure it's "good enough".
>> Like piña coladas.... just kidding. Mojitos. You like mojitos. Or a really terrific ruby red grapefruit Moscow Mule. Not that you're picky or anything, you just have really good taste.
I am not exaggerating when I say that Amanda has changed the way I market my business. Before I met Amanda, I was spending way too much time on Pinterest trying to get traction. She has not only freed up my time to work on creating content, but she then markets that content which generates traffic and sales. On top of her expertise, she is a joy to work with, she is not only a talented Pinterest marketer, she understands exactly what my business needs to grow. - Julie Miller
Since working with Amanda Sue, I've been able to focus on the things I love to do: teaching, writing, photography and creating watercolors. I handed over a bunch of tasks with confidence, because Amanda Sue knows how to work within my brand. Knowing that someone is working behind the scenes, making your business more successful is the BEST feeling. Knowing that you can just hand over tasks to someone who knows what she's doing is even better. That's what you get with Amanda Sue. - April Bowles-Olin
Amanda is a wonderful mentor. She is a creative herself so she understands my work and what I'm trying to achieve, but she's also full of ideas and business know-how so when I come to her with various problems and concerns, she's able to knock aside a lot of the fluff that I'm looking at and show me the bigger picture. If you're running a creative business, I highly recommend Amanda's unique blend of business and creative/unicorn wrangling. - Kristin of We All Knit Here
Working with Amanda Sue for 5 weeks intensely propelled my business forward, into actual existence from mere inklings in my brain. She has a way of seeing straight through all the chatter and conversation to plucking out exactly what you mean, and where you should go from there. - Aimee of Hearth & Caravan
