So today I updated the signs in my front and back windows in The Courtyard Studio about the new shop.
I spoke with some other businesses in the courtyard making sure all are aware of the move.
I checked my square business card which has proved very popular and identified details that needed to change for a new one – not done at the shop as the mobile internet is less reliable when so many people are in town.
My courtyard studio leaflet that features the old original shop sign has already had to be modified a couple of times manually and now a new leaflet / flyer will be needed.
I have continued to receive feedback from friends, family and fellow artists about my posts yesterday on social media about the move and the new accounts have gathered more followers. Where customers mentioning coming back on future trips beyond this month they were told briefly about the new shop.
I sorted some favoured photos to use to start some new art pieces ahead of Purbeck Art Weeks (PAW 21). I have until August 30 to select the work I will have on display at Rollington Barn where I am exhibiting as an artist for the first time. The new shop offers the chance to offer an ‘open studio’ type experience for the duration of the art weeks.
Then this evening at home I have set up a new Linktr.ee account for the new shop and a new QR code. The new business card has been designed and first batch ordered to start giving out from next week. I have started to work on editing my current leaflet and considering a new style flyer for the new venture.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6007-614fcafd18ccc' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6007&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6007-614fcafd18ccc' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6007-614fcafd18ccc' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
