Reposting as I sent only to panelists - For the photographer you could something specific for people’s photos on line or designing Zoom looks because this might be a new area of demand - and share the tricks of making a flattering photo
We are going to use this time to plan, organise systems etc and do the behind the scenes things we haven't had time to do and hopefully ride this out and will come out better at the other end. Wanting to put time into marketing so at the other end hopefully people will know more about us.

Hello Everyone, I'm Joyce Piper from The Face Yoga Coach here in Adelaide.
thank you that was very helpful
I agree mate. Now is not the time for the hard sell… soft sell is where its at :)
I have noticed in the last 3 weeks on facebook I have had 8 more people liking and following me
I am overwhelmed by the amount of emails and FB hustles I'm seeing and find it very off putting personally.
I have been on FB as a counsellor they are the post and lives I have been doing
very good advice!
iron sharpens iron
A quiet, calm mind will come up with ideas, write everything down, don't be in judgment of ideas that come to you.
I love this Joyce
I have a handmade card business, at a standstill at the moment and I would like to start an online shop. am thinking of making kits so people can make their own. ‘Papercraft with Heart’
clare what about an oline course including video for family to go with kits
yes Joanne good idea. thanks
HotJar? - shows customer viewing areas on website, live records where customers are on web page - thanks James
James, thanks for all the information you are giving us, very helpful.
I did this last week and it was amazing how many people shared our page and increased our followers definately
If you have a shop, change your A-Frames so you can be visible without being noisy. The insertable AFrames are the best for changing regularly and quickly
we always have a minimum of 1!
Thanks James for HotJar
More about A frames

I used to be a hairdresser and back in the day it ‘word of mouth advertising’
How do I find you Sonya?
Hi Joyce, yes we have handymen/women in our network...Adelaide Home Services

What about when clients are one off clients?
atm people want need a personal connection
Brilliant to say thank you for past business and care about their situation
Relationship marketing is used as a commission based agreement with direct customers to act as your sales reps. Proper Marketing includes business and marketing strategies, branding, product management, PR, CSR...etc etc. What was just explained is the main reason why businesss are SUFFERING. They are unable to provide Value for Money.
Thank you Sonya.
Justin in regards to FB should we combine personal page with business page or keep separate ?
Also what you are saying is businesses should ask their customers to go through the trouble of promoting them (that's marketing, except that it is very limited audience and who know if they are the right type of customers).. versus proper advertising that gets your message to a large number of target people and forces you to go through the entire value chain and every detail of your business to be done well.
agree with keeping it real, raw and relational - people will relate and engage more
You're welcome Joyce
That keeps you small. SA business owners want to work less and make more money and then say they are competent with what they have so no need to work more then as soon as anything happens they start asking for people to support them. What I am proposing is to think differently and think a little bigger.
i see so many opportunities for those who can see new pathways - this is an amazing revolution that is happening faster than we anticipated
this has been great, thanks so much to both of you!
