Checklist For Your Business

 

Here’s what you’ll need to do if you haven’t already:

  • Create your business name – Purchase the domain name and use it for your Ecommerce Website, Etsy, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Keep it Simple and consistent. Even if you’re only doing an Etsy shop, still purchase the domain.  I see a lot Etsy shop owners that have not secured the domain name for their business. It’s so important to have the same domain even if you’re not going to utilize it right away.
  • Set up your website or Etsy shop or refresh it with the product descriptions included
  • You’ll need to purchase and download Photoshop & DropBox
  • Create your Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter if this is something that you’re interested in.
  • Download the Adobe Creative Suites link
  • Take all of my training courses and read training material
  • Start Designing!
