In recent times we've had customers in-store who are here on their holidays and have wanted to buy our products online when they get home, as well as others who don't live near Belfast and have asked if they can purchase from our website, and to date they can't. However that's all about to change as we decided that it was about time we got into selling online.
It was a little overwhelming at first as both of us are complete novices, apart from selling our unwanted crap on eBay, which isn’t quite the same. But as with most things, self-education is the way to go, and we've spent the last few months swotting up on all things e-commerce. Etsy articles make for great reading, and we came across this one to do with the importance of good photography when selling your wares.
While searching for ‘the one’ we found that most commercial photography was lifeless, clinical, and sort of plain- Jane-esque. The images quality was superb but they lacked personality. Being a creative start-up, we felt lacklustre photos just wouldn’t do. All hope was lost until we came across Fine Art Imaging, which is owned and run by the lovely Margaret O’Hare.
This is Margaret- she's fab!
As it turns out, Margaret initially trained in Fine Art, which is why she is so good at bringing her creative flair to the table. Looking through her portfolio, it was clear that she was a woman of many talents. Each project had its own style and she captured the nature of each business beautifully.
One chilly Wednesday morning, this lovely, friendly woman, cocooned in a zingy, lime-green coat, graced us with her enthusiastic presence and we knew right away that we had made the right choice.
That's all for now guys... Have a great week whatever you're up to! x
