Bear with me as I ramble this thought out of my head.
I read an article yesterday in the Va. Pilot, from my hometown of Norfolk, VA., about a couple who only do show.
They have no website, no face book, no online anything and allow no one to shoot pictures of their work.
Their thought is if you take pictures you will not buy their work.
They make tiles.
They think if you take pictures you are doing so to either copy their work or to show your friends their work without buying it.
This has given me great pause as someone who has a website, blog and face book.
I am always looking at how best to get the word out about our work, who we are and what we do.
In fact yesterday I enjoyed the company of a couple who had done the following.
Researched the area on line.
Looked at and narrowed down what they liked and wanted to buy.
They walked in talked a bit and picked out 3 pieces.
Set them aside from the mass and decided on one.
They were pleased and I was pleased.
They had done their homework.
He asked me do others folks do this as well.
And I said yes.
I have had others come in who have done the same.
With that said I think I will keep my website, Face book and blog.
You can't get rid of me that easy.
And, although I enjoy what I do, I also enjoying sharing.
So I guess I will go back to the pictures.
You don't mind do you?
