do you have a posse?

Happy Wednesday!

Relationships have always been the most important thing in my life, be it romantic, friendship, or family. Surrounding yourself with loved ones, and making sure they know how important they all are to you, should be top priority! With similar passions and interests, we support and encourage each other in our various endeavors with enough laughter to make anything fun :)

The more support you’ve got in your corner, the more you feel like you can do anything in the world. The same goes for your business. Surrounding yourself with your customers, fans, friends and family members who rave about you will not only bolster your confidence, but also make you more appealing to the outside world, potential retail partners. When they see that you have build a strong community of followers, they will want to “get to know you” to see what the buzz is about. Hopefully, some of your followers will become followers of the store if they decide bring in your product line.

If you are looking to grow your community, there are a few important things to keep in mind:

1. First of all, creating a facebook fan page opens you up to the millions of facebook users. If you don’t have one yet, go create one. It’s easy as 1-2-3. Once you have 25 likes you can even create your own vanity URL (i.e. facebook.com/pinkolive)
2. Secondly, your friends and family count! They can spread the word just as well as anyone else can. Plus they can vouch for your personality and history.
3. And last, but certainly not least, don’t forget to reward them! Giving special gifts and offers to your posse is important, after all they are in a special group!
