I’d like to introduce you to Janet at Beautilicious40. We met on twitter when I responded to a tweet from Janet asking for a website designer. She explained her vision of an online “magazine” for the 40 plus bride. Due to be one herself she had done her research and come up short on finding a website that catered to this market, so she had decided to create one herself. With my style background this was obviously a project that really appealed to me and whilst I am not planning to get re-married (unless my husband isn’t telling me something) I do fall into the 40 plus group, so could understand Janet’s frustration.
The site build was quick and extremely painless – all communication carried out via email and twitter, as Janet is “Up North” and I am “Down South”. Since the site went live at the beginning of April, Janet has continued to keep it updated and fresh – key to ensuring search engine optimisation. We are working on building traffic to ensure the site gets found by those people that need the valuable information she provides, including beautiful real weddings to inspire those starting out in their wedding planning journey. Whilst I will be working on SEO for Janet what I love about working with her is that she doesn’t sit back and expect it to just happen. She is actively making it happen by being extremely savvy with her use of social media – Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, where she has gathered over 900 followers, and has today heard she is in the top 100 wedding tweeters. If you want a lesson in how to get attention for your business I suggest you check out these profiles and follow Janet!
It’s so rewarding to be involved with a wonderful success story – especially in such a short timescale, and Janet deserves all the success that her hard work is bringing. It proves the point that building a business around something you have a passion for works.
