Flowers & Plants & Self Promotion




One thing I've heard from people who are successful at selling a product or something they create themselves, is "You have to promote yourself and your product. Then you have to promote some more." I've been told it's an ongoing process. In other words, you don't just one day say, "Hey, I've got these great things for sale." and then see what happens - You've got to keep putting your product out there for people to see. Well, I must admit that I'm not good at this part of 'business'. I have NO problem singing the praises of other people and their creations, because that's how I am. I DO, however, shrink away from the thought of 'bragging' on myself. That's just not me. It makes me feel like I'm self-centered or conceited. However, I've told all of you that I promised myself this year would be my year to strive to make something happen with my photography. So... here I am attempting to promote myself *blush*. I'm not going to sit here and go on and on about myself and how great my photography is though. I'm simply going to show you some pictures, and you can decide for yourself. If you are, in fact, interested in any of the photos, you will find a link to my gallery by holding your mouse over the slide show. Or, you can simply go to www.mistydawns.zenfolio.com.

No, my product won't help herpes simplex, but it will brighten your walls... or your coffee mug... or your mousepad... you get the idea. Yes, I did just mention herpes and my photography in the same sentence. ;-) Oh, and I'll warn you now... I'll be posting more slide shows on an ongoing basis. Maybe I'll get this promotion thing figured out yet. ;-)
