FREE “Graphics With Gimp” Webinar! (guest post by Angela Wills)

graphics for my website

One of the most difficult parts of starting a new website is making the online visual match the offline creativity and talent you possess!

You know that people judge a book by it’s cover. It also stands to reason that people judge the quality of a website by it’s graphics. You have literally seconds to make an impression and every pixel on your screen counts towards that.

How do you take your knack for making beautiful things and turn it into a visual, digital medium for everyone to enjoy and react to?

Graphics! And lots of ’em!

So the next question then becomes: How do I get graphics for my website, for cheap (or free).

Well, graphic designers are NOT free. While it is great to hire a professional it’s just not always possible on the small business owners budget.

There is a faster and cheaper way to get graphics for your website: Do It Yourself!

How?

With Gimp

What Is Gimp?

It’s a free software program that rivals Photoshop in function but not in price. You can use gimp to create:

Headers – Use these to draw your readers in to your website and convert them into enthusiastic fans of your business.

Ads – Create graphics that sell your stuff. Getting people to click and convert.

Buttons – Want people to link back to your website? Create a simple button that they can copy and link to you with.

Accents – The same ol’ boring text puts your readers to sleep. Break it up with graphics or images that accent your point perfectly!

Product Covers – Selling a digital or even a physical product? You can use great graphics to help make sales by showing a digital representation of what you have for sale.

Don’t be caught with bad graphics! You can learn a few simple techniques to create high quality graphics that add personality AND profit to your business.

You don’t have to do it alone either. This Thursday you can watch as I show you, step by step, how to create your own 125×125 button to use on your website or anywhere to promote your business. I’ll also be sharing with you how you can grab yourself a seat in the 3-hour intensive GIMP Clinic where you’ll learn how to use graphics to convince and convert potential buyers into customers.

We Had A GREAT Winter Biz Session Last Night!

I think that last night’s Winter Biz Session was GREAT! Our guest was Angela Wills of Marketer’s Mojo. We talked about making money as an affiliate.

If you’re not familiar with that term, here’s an easy explanation: Affiliates earn commission by recommending products and services. For example, if you joined my affiliate program and wrote a blog post about The Winter Biz Sessions on your blog, and one of your readers registered, I would pay you 50% commission ($5).

If you missed that call but want to learn more about how to earn money this way, you can listen to the recording online (or download the audio if you prefer to listen on your Mp3 player). You will also receive the audio from the other Winter Biz Session topics, which include info on how to wholesale your products, how to start a freelance career, what not to do when starting your website, blog touring, getting more out of your business – without putting more time into it, and more!

Easy Marketing Plan – Just Be You (guest post from Angela Wills)

Hi, I’m Angela Wills! Crissy has been so kind to invite me on over to her blog to share a post about building a business that you love. My business and website located at MarketersMojo.com is all about providing business owners with the information and tools they need to build a successful business. A business that gives them not only money but an amazing life. That’s what I want for everyone, including you.

So here is my guest blog post for all you smart and talented Indie Biz Chicks readers:

Easy Marketing Plan – Be Who You Want to Be

Do you ever wish marketing your business wasn’t so hard? Do you wonder why you are even doing what you do to promote your business?

Let’s change it up a little!

What if you just marketed your business in a way that suits YOU. In a way that fits your personality, that makes you feel happy, useful and helpful. Would that make a difference to your business and your life?

I think so.

Marketing Doesn’t Have to Suck

You see, too many people see marketing their business as a nasty task. They hate selling to people. They hate being pushy and trying to shove their business in other people’s faces. If you hate that too then I have a simple solution for you – stop doing it!

You’ve been lied too if you’ve been told that you have to market in a way that goes against who you are and what you stand for. You’ve been lied to if you think marketing has to be an ‘in yer face’ ‘hunter vs. prey’ type of situation where you come out the winner or you don’t get to feed your family.

You absolutely can be the amazing, brilliant, shining YOU and make money!

Ok enough of the fluffy, just how do you do that? How do you make money by being you?

A Practical Plan to Marketing Your Business

The thing is there are hundreds of ways to market your business and they all work. You just need to find out what you like to do.

Me, I love to write about stuff I know. I love to share that with other people. So I blog, I podcast, I do videos, I write articles and I share. While I do that I am marketing my business. Right now I am marketing my business by giving you advice on how to market yours and I LOVE that!

You’ve seen all the lists of how you can market your business on and off the internet. Go to them now with a new mindset. Pick through them based on what you enjoy, what you’re good at and what you can scale up big to make even more money.

Easy Marketing PlanI’ve got more ideas for you too! At this point I’d love to invite you to grab a free copy of my special report called “Market From The Heart“.
