open for business, plus addendum
copious amounts of coffee and tea have kept me going (and the very occasional glass of red wine) as I have been VERY BUSY
not just with the quilting as can be seen in hazy image below, but drrrrummmmmrrrrrroll with setting up my business for real and making a site with the help of our son!
addendum: you can check out the website in Dutch: 'De Kunst van het Opruimen' or in English: 'The Art of Tidying Up'
Most pages are by now both in Dutch and English.
You can also click on the Blue Tangible Memory, with a link to the English version in the side bar on the right and off you go
I translated the Tidying Up Section and you show such good business sense: the initial first meeting, the consultation is free and that is always a draw. I was immediately taken by this sentence in how you will operate:"...a different layout is enough to have a tidy feeling". This is brilliant because there may be those clients who really don't want to get rid of much but feel overwhelmed with what they have. You last column shows that this will not be a dry exchange, you and your client will work together and in so doing, a "Tangible Memory" will be created. By mentioning that you would like to include these in the book you will write, you have placed yourself in a very unique marketing position, one that goes beyond someone who comes in and revamps a home. Instead, you create a shared consultancy by engaging the client beyond the list of chores to tidy up their homes.
I wish you every success, you are on your way!
please let me know if this actually works, or not.....I have put a lot of effort in the translating these last couple of days, as I found googletranslate a tad disappointing...bye for now
((Mo)) thanks, finally got things moving my way, it has been a long journey!
Thank you Marti for your extensive and considered comment; there are still issues with the site, fortunately I have my job-coach helping me sort things out, like 'search keywords' et cetera. Stuff I had no idea until recently.
Thank you Dana, I'm looking forward to meeting new clients and getting to know them.
hi Patty, yes I agree my future clients will have a distinguishing eye;-)
thanks Michelle and you are welcome!
