Better Twitter Marketing

 

Six years or so ago, Twitter was used daily by me and my crafting friends. Though I was not a faithful participant, I remember fondly the tweeting events, Twitter bombs and striving not to be sent to Twitter jail. I also had fun using Tweet Deck for awhile.

Over the years, Twitter seems to have fallen into disuse by much of my crafting community. I run by my profile occasionally to update my banner and weed out my following and followers lists. I have even tweeted infrequently but I never liked Twitter very much. The tiny posts images and the abbreviated posts lengths always annoyed and constricted me too much.

Recently, I checked on some of my creative associates and found that many had not tweeted in years! I was not surprised but the discovery left me saddened. It was a reminder that so much online activity has declined among creative groups, social sites and selling venues. It seems to have happened swiftly within the last few years and never recovered.

During my visit, I ran across a link to this post on how to better use Twitter. I was surprised that one of the suggestions is to use only one hashtag in tweets. The article author explains why. If you find yourself still using Twitter or wanting to, read this short help article to better promote your products and services when tweeting.

Happy Saturday & Signature Colors

 

My signature colors are green and pink, lime and purple, fuchsia and chartreuse. You get it. Any combo of the tones of yellow-green and purple-pink sends my spirits soaring. I only like the clear crispness of tones (jewel tones), not shades so much and rarely ever tints (pastels). I'm a winter so that figures.

Identifying and using signature colors can help establish your brand among customers and potential customers. It's important because it can be synonymous with consistent quality and service. It can also identify your products wherever potential customers happen to run across them. Using signature colors and motifs give the impression that attention to detail is important to you.

What are your signature colors? I can trace my love for mine all the way back to childhood, especially the green. In art class, I made a papier mache giraffe and painted it green with yellow spots. I also made a pottery bowl and painted the outside green and the inside yellow. Along the way, I became enraptured with fuchsia, the complimentary color of green.

If you haven't yet done so, try to identify the 2-3 colors that make you the most happy and begin to use them to consolidate and grow your business.

Free Affinity Designer Vectors From LollyJeanne

  

Lollyjeanne Affinity Vectors

If you are seeking holiday vectors to use in your Affinity Designer, Photo and Publisher apps, this is the place. Lori at Lollyjeanne has skillfully and accurately recreated mid-century designs that can be fully edited, in the Affinity programs, to your style and needs.

I downloaded some of her cute free graphics. I really like her coffee cup and am already thinking of how I can use it in card designs. It would also work well in cafe-style wall art.

You can get her freebies here Lollyjeanne Freebies where she also offers a generous license and creative options.

Vector & PNG Resource Freebies by Lollyjeanne

I have been using Affinity products for years and I like Lori's work so much that I purchased 5 files from Lollyjeanne's Etsy Shop

I love the files that I've purchased. They are a very good investment and I would buy from Lori again. While she mainly offers design resources for creative folks working with Affinity graphic programs, she also designs clip art.

She says everything here on Lollyjeanne is created with love in Affinity Designer. I hope these design resources will be a useful addition to your creative library! 

Atomic Christmas Chickadee by Lollyjeanne
 Chickadee: This is the sweetest vector image! Looking forward to using him in my holiday designs.

Atomic Christmas Orament II by Lollyjeanne

Atomic Christmas Ornament II: I love mid-century modern and Lori has created a stunning, accurate replication in her holiday ornaments designs. Can hardly wait to get started creating my holiday designs using her fully-editable work.

Atomic Christmas 4 Snowflakes: Anything snow and I'm in love. Lollyjeanne's Atomic Snowflakes give me chills of excitement! Remember: she designed them to be very easy to edit in the Affinity Suite apps. So excited about my purchase!

Atomic Christmas Pine Branch: This is the best simplistic, stylized design of a pine bough that I've ever seen! Very easy to download too. Happy with my purchase!

Atomic Christmas Ornament 4: Another mid-century ornament design that can be fully edited to your style and needs. Happy with my investment and you will be too!


 Lollyjeanne also offers gorgeous design packs!
