busConnections…that’s how you grow your business.  So, where do you start?  Here are 4 tips for making connections within your creative community to help grow your business:

Tip #1: Reach out and connect with one new friend this week on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest that share a common business interest as you.  Do this each week!

Tip #2: Write a blog post this week…reach out to a blogger that interests you and pitch a topic to them where you can share your experience. This is a great way to build exposure to your business while sharing your expertise with their community!

Tip #3: Share and promote others just as much as you promote yourself. Working toward building success not only for you, but for your fellow artisans as well will help you in the long run and grow your business faster than doing it alone.

Tip #4: Connect with a fellow small business owner within your community to get together and share ideas and brainstorm to help one another achieve your goals!  Do this activity on a regular basis not only helps your business…it’s fun!

What are some tips you use to connect with your creative community?
