For as long as I have had an online "presence" running a web based business (almost 6 years), one would think that I would understand far more and have long ago jumped all over the social media opportunities. Well, it's intimidated me! I have been my own little island running my bow business to those who happened to find me. I've been happy that way. But things are slow and I could really use an increase in business. I have adoption fees to raise!!

I had a reunion this weekend with five of my college sorority sisters and they encouraged me to start a Facebook fan page. My dear girlfriends who work day in and day out in corporate jobs in business, law and marketing are not only my cheerleaders, but a built in resource of knowledge I need to tap into! I dipped my toe into the water tonight and created a page. I had to have 25 fans to even register a url. I was giggling as I watched the ticker go up. I had it in about 25 minutes! My website url was taken, and so were the next five names I tried. I ended up with

Now I need to figure the marketing aspect out and add pictures and get some conversation going. Care to join me?

  1. Yeah!! Welcome to FB... I'm glad to hear you have added Girly Girl Bowtique...I will certainly become a fan and suggest others, too! Sometimes it helps to get more people to stop in if you do a give-away. My step-sister recently did one to get new fans on her FB page and I know some of my friends from high school even went over to check her out. I think you'll have fun with it! On my way over now...I'll see you there! :)
