So a couple of months ago I started my own business (hence the blog name and URL change). Two Little Birds Design came to life after I started being asked by friends to make banners and other paper party things for birthday parties for their little one’s birthday parties. Since then, I’ve been slowing finding ways to market the business without spending much money.
The obvious way has been through friends who’ve bought something from me.
Another has been teaming up with photographers around the country (because, well, you can send banners everywhere!) for them to use in their photoshoots (and to make my listings look better).
And the most recent way has been through a sponsored ad on a blog. My ad’s been running on In the moment with since the beginning of February (I have followed her since I started blogging. I’ve watched her develop into a photographer and her boys grow- it’s been really fun to watch!). So when I decided to make a go at this, I reached out to her to see if she’d be interested in some banners. We worked out the details, and I sent them to her. She used them in both a maternity session and a first birthday cake smash shoot – so so cute!
To celebrate my shop opening (albeit a couple months later), I sponsored a giveaway on her blog! So be sure to head over there and enter to win a banner!!
More to come on this new endeavor in the near future!
