On my list of things to get done is:
Get all the way through doing my business plan workbook, even if I don't finish every item in the workbook. That is why I buy sticky notes.
I need to set up my light box do some product photography. Then I need to add my photos to my products to enhance my listings.
I need to make sure that I have products listed in all of my storefronts.
I found Etsy first, so it has the most products but they charge me to list each product and take a percentage of the sales. ArtFire and Artistwebsites do not charge me to list, but they take a higher percentage of the sales.
I need to work on Search Engine Optimization on all my listings.
I need to add a sales button to this blog. I need to learn how to add code to a website to do that. So probably need a book.
I need to research free advertising for my sites. I am my only employer, and I don't have even a shoestring budget for advertising.
I need to update my will. If I am squashed by a beaver cutting down a tree on me tomorrow, my family needs to be able to access all my accounts and shut them down in an orderly fashion. That means I need more organization than the wallpapering of sticky notes on my computer hutch with cryptic scribbles that might be passwords or might be usernames, or heck, might be a grocery list.
I need to continue to sort my 45,000 photos to add to my portfolio. I need to tag the photos and make any edits that are needed so they are ready to use when I need them, not after messing with them for half an hour when I really wanted to upload them and go.
