Do you find yourself wishing you had more time in the day to complete what you set out to do? Raise your hand if you ever beat yourself up because you feel like you didn’t accomplish enough or didn’t meet your goals? (Raise both hands and feet)
You tell yourself if you could just find one or two more hours, you could finish a few blog posts, find a new writing gig or make a few more sales. What if you I told you it possible to achieve it and you won’t feel guilty stepping away to sit down for dinner with your family, hang out with your friends, or get an extra 30 minutes of sleep.
I am in the service industry using my web design skills. My design studio has one employee – me – I have to handle both the creative and business end. There are times when I wish I had a team to handle the business end so I can just focus on being creative. So I did what anyone would do in my situation. Whether in the future I decided to expand my business, I needed to found a way to help relieve some of the stress by streamlining some of my tasks. It will be better for everyone.
At the end of 2010 I found out about a great site called E-junkie. E-junkie is a site that will allow you to sell your products and services. I currently use it to sell some of my most popular design services (Blog headers & Facebook Page Banners). It’s have been a tremendous help for my business. Whenever I get an inquiry about one of those services, I can now easily direct them to that sell page which they can do one of two things: make a purchase directly from there or contact me if they have additional questions. The great thing is that I will never forget to invoice because my E-Junkie shop is my own personal express checkout line.
It makes me smile when I check my email and I see that I have a sale. It’s a great feeling and with a recent tweak, I know that within hours or the next day new customers will email me with all the information I need to complete their job because they receive an special instructional PDF upon making a purchase. I know now see the importance of eliminated unnecessary steps in my process, freeing up time to focus on designing. I can’t forget to mention how affordable using this service has been. For just $5 a month I am able to sell up to 10 digital products and/or services. E-Junkie has been one those tools I incorporated into my business that has stood the test of time. You should give their FREE 1-week trial try.
