I took the plunge into the video media world. It was fun to experiment with some of the options in editing. I know there's much more that I'm missing but you got to start somewhere. AVS Video Editor was the program of choice. Just did a little compare and contrasting with other software and read reviews. Free isn't too bad but to produce your file without the AVS watermark, you will have to pay for that. I'm overall pleased with the result. Take a look see and leave a comment. Thanks. http://youtu.be/elmeiTTe8E4
A few of months ago Jennifer Woodall, a producer from local TV "Show Me St. Louis" saw my first efforts at the pet bowl business on Etsy. I had made those listings inactive before Jennifer contacted me about using those as a segment on the show. The format offered by Etsy didn't allow me a way to offer all the options in a cohesive way, so I ventured into the DIY website realm. However, I was "discovered" by Jennifer there. The show is about local businesses and what they offer. There's a little background discussed and the process that goes into their product or service. So it's an awesome way to promote locally. So after I commited to doing the show, Jennifer gave me an assignment of creating a couple more types of bowls for pets to show a variety within the discussion. I did a little homework and added two new models ( with a third coming soon) to my original model. One is for long eared dogs that keeps their ears out of the bowls and the other is for dogs that inhale their food. These can be seen here. I would like to thank Jennifer for the opportunity to promote my business and I'm going to drop a link to her personalized sterling silver jewelry business that she does during her free time here. Thanks Jennifer!
So I didn't realize how much time and effort went into making an online business work. It's challenging enough to produce the work for sales but then there's the whole marketing aspect of it, which I'm not too comfortable with yet. I'm confident in my work but it's my presentation that needs some polish. I recently bought a new camera, so that means I have to go back and shoot all my work over again because the previous shooter is not up to snuff. Yay ! It's necessary though.
