MARKETING FUN

All of these cards and marketing materials are packed and ready to go in my suitcase. They are flying south for the winter tomorrow. Wink wink! ;) I blurred out and photo shopped out some of the text - like my phone # and such - for those of you blog stalkers who would like to call and prank me. Ha ha! :) The lab I use for my photography prints totally ROCKS and I couldn't be more happy with the end result that I got when I used that same lab to print all of my marketing materials. I also couldn't be more happy with the work that Crystal did in helping me to design and pull together my materials. I now have stacks and stacks of promo materials that will be hand delivered into Southwest Florida beginning tomorrow. I hope to saturate the market there in the coming months. My family and I fly out early tomorrow morning and will be spending Fall break at our home away from home in the sunshine next to the sea. I'm sitting here staring at a suitcase that has yet to be stuffed with our clothes for the next several days. Can anyone say "wwaayyyy behind!!!???" On another note though...I'm sporting the "coolest Mom in the world" award this week. Why you ask? Well, because my son now has his very own custom calling cards...

While ordering all of my promo materials, we opted to order Brennen some of his very own "business cards" so to speak for all of his little buddies. (and the adorable & ever so trendy little girl down the street whom he commonly refers to as his 'girlfriend.') The killa' thing about that is that when all of his little buddies have taken the cards home to show their Mom and Dad in hopes of getting their own custom calling cards, each card has my photography website address on the back of it. So...guess who is getting sessions booked off of the wonderful work of a bunch of little 5th graders? Yeap, muah...all because they showed the card to their parents and the parents saw on the cards who did the photography and ultimately went to my website. Suddenly these families now have a need for portraits. Uh huh...not only am I the coolest and most "awesome-est" Mom in the world for producing the calling cards but I'm also killing two birds with one stone - holding the coolest Mom title and marketing my name incognito via some fun 5th graders. They are H-I-R-E-D!!! Totally hired!!! Ha ha! Don't hate! :)

For now though, I'm off to go finish start packing the suitcases. Our 7am flight to the beach calls and I don't dare miss it. Like always, any prayers you can send up for our safe travels, smooth flights, and calm 6 year old daughters during "said smooth flights" would be GREAT! I'll blog from the beach as usual and hope to have some nice images to share from our quick jaunt. Oh and for those of you who've been one of the many who emailed me about the cookie diet...I haven't started it yet. I decided I wanted to stuff my big, fat, face with Florida surf and turf first before I tortured myself with a diet - even if it does consist of only cookies. Winking uncontrollably... ;-)

Much love, Angie

Angie, what a brillant idea and who better to be on most of the post cards but Brennen. He is a natural. I know it took him awhile to come around to "enjoying" the photo shoots but the wait was worth it. I want one of those post cards or a print please. If you have any left over that you would like distributed here for Marketing let me know. Give Brennen and Kenidi big hugs and kisses from Aunt Sharla. LYFA

I saw some of your materials at Patrick's in Boone Village. I said -- "Hey! I know her!"

You are really are the coolest mom EVER. I love those cards. I just took pictures with my two little cousins this past weekend and I am sure they would love something like that too.

Thanks for sharing your great ideas. I wish you the best with your business. You are so very talented!

Warmly,

Bernie
