After more than a year of selling my handmade and vintage jewelery pieces on Etsy, I have decided to take another track. I love the jewelery but find I love blogging and Internet marketing even more. I have been a writer as long as I can remember. My first story was “the gift of giving” I think I was 10 or 11. Besides the writing (I have published a book and some poetry) I am a true geek. I love computers, technology, Star Trek, Doctor Who, the stars and the paranormal. The changes coming to my Etsy shop will reflect what I love doing. I love to help people and unlock the unknown. Which is what led me to the changes to my Etsy shop. Working in a Computer Science Department at a major university gave me plenty of insight into the mind of the brilliant computer genius, which I can tap into and break down to a common (my) level. So many people my age and older are mystified by Twitter,Facebook and blogging. It is my sincere goal to make it easy to understand. I think the social media world is here to stay and will get bigger and bigger. If you are not “with it” you will be left behind. Which in some ways may not be that bad. But if you want to succeed in the 21st Century in online business and marketing you need to know the basics.
My new shop will offer, very easy step by step tutorials on Twitter, Facebook,Blogger, WordPress, Google Analytics, Skype and how to increase your Internet presence and guide more customers to your business. I know you can read the tutorials on each of the social networking sites but they are not easy for us older folks to understand. Most of us do not speak “geek”. I also offer a Skype live one on one guided instruction. In addition I will offer Skype home calls to help you with minor computer problems: hooking up a printer, clearing a printer jam, changing the ink, de-fragging your computer, clearing the cache. I will offer these services at a very reasonable price.
I hope you will visit my shop once everything is up and running. Many thanks for your support in the past.
