Day 2771 – A Lesson In Marketing From Past Jennilyn’s Mistakes

I’ve been relying on income from freelance sources for some or all of my income for over 12 years now. I’ve learned so much since I started, from how to use my photography gear, to how to use different editing software, to how to code a website, to how to market. You know I regularly check my previous year’s posts on Facebook. I see soooooo many statuses with me saying “like my Facebook page,” “check out my website,” in so many words, my Facebook feed screamed “BUY FROM ME!!!!!!!” I am so embarrassed by past Jennilyn. I’ve learned you don’t get raving fans from shoving your wares down potential clients throats. You get raving fans by sharing great content that is important to them. I sure hope I learn this lesson from past Jennilyn as I jump into new ventures. I hope I am more concerned with getting my messages to people that need to hear it than trying to get everyone to listen.

What about you, have you ever made a really embarrassing marketing mistake in your past?

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
