Before we even launched The Jojotastic School of Social Media, we did a TON of research and brainstorming about how to make each lesson as meat and valuable as possible for small business owners. As a small biz owner myself, I understand how important it is for each dollar invested in the business to multiple and grow it. Because of this, we spent a lot of time considering the needs of makers such as artists, illustrators, ceramicists, woodworkers, jewelry makers, Etsy shop owners and more. The classes are actually designed with my friend Silver + Salt in mind. We have chatted at length about ways she can use social media to increase her sales and expand her customer base… and it’s working! So today, I wanted to share more about our latest offering: 30 Tips & Tricks for Makers on Social Media. Long story short: for $25 you can now get my best social media tips for artists and makers!Continue reading “30 Social Media Tips for Artists & Makers”
In case you haven’t heard yet, we launched something new for The Jojotastic School of Social Media recently! They are checklists of 30 tips and tricks to improve your social media accounts and get out of a rut — and each one is dedicated to a specific industry! Right now, there are 4 to choose from: interior designer, florist, wedding photographer, and maker (i.e. ceramicists, artists, illustrators, and anyone who makes a product!). More to come, too. There’s so much to share about each one, but today I want to focus on the social media tips for interior designers since I know that’s a large part of my blog readers and social media followers! Oh, and before we dive in too far… did I mention that they are each only $25???Continue reading “My Latest Launch: 30 Specialized Tips for Interior Designers on Social Media”
Have you ever wondered what a typical day is like in my life? Today’s the day you’ll find out! I get asked a lot how I manage to run this blog, stay active on all of my social media channels, freelance, consult for brands and small businesses, shoot and edit photos, and a lot more as a team of one. I’m not going to say that it’s easy at all… but I am a very process-oriented person, so there are some tools and systems in place that definitely help me to be more productive. And they just might help you, too!

Ever since launching my first class a few weeks ago (learn more about 101: Developing your Brand’s Aesthetic), I have been literally tied to my laptop getting the second one ready… and today is the day! I am beyond proud and excited to introduce 201: Instagram and Pinterest for Small Business – Create and Grow Your Online Social Media Presence With Confidence today. I’ve created a curriculum that puts the power back in your hands, teaching you how to turn your social media platforms into powerful tools to connect with your audience, gain brand recognition, and increase sales… and it is SO good.
AND if you purchase a class before 12:01 AM Monday 4/27, we will donate $50 of each sale to Feeding America!Continue reading “My NEW Online Class: Instagram and Pinterest for Small Business”
OMG OMG OMG… this is a day that’s about 6 months in the making! I launched in-person classes to teach small businesses how to use social media back in July 2019. After the wedding and my hospitalization and the holidays… I got really behind in publishing the online version of the course. Recently, I decided to stop making excuses and get to it. So today I am beyond excited to announce that the first class in the Jojotastic School of Social Media is officially LIVE and ready for you to register. I wanted to share a bit more info about the classes today, but if you have any additional questions, please leave a comment and I will respond! (I ask that you leave a comment because that helps others see my response to it, as opposed to over DM or email.)Continue reading “It’s HERE: The Jojotastic School of Social Media Online!”
My workspace has been very unsettled ever since last September. I opted to move out of my studio space in order to save money, a decision for which I am so grateful today. After that, I tried to work out of our tiny bungalow, but it proved to be unhealthy in terms of stopping working at the end of the day. We had also just finished making over the living room and just… didn’t want my small space home office to be here! So we moved it 3 blocks north to Sean’s dad’s house. Now that there’s a freaking pandemic, I made the decision again to move my desk back into our 640 sqft home so that both Andy and I can avoid potentially infecting each other. I’ve shared a bit about this on Instagram, but have gotten lots of questions over the past week. So I wanted to share a mini tour of my current home office in case you’re also suddenly working out of your small space!Continue reading “My (Temporary) Small Space Home Office”
