We are over the moon today to share the wise words of Arianne from Aeolidia today! You have doubtless seen her work all over the internet because her small business is responsible for creating amazing websites for other small business owners, creatives, artists, and handmade communities like Oh My Handmade! Arianne talks about hiring your first employee, how word of mouth is the best marketing tool you have, and how to really get to know what your customers want. Happy reading!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.
I began designing websites as Aeolidia in 2005 as a freelancer. My friendly conscientiousness combined with my highly reasonable (read: ridiculously cheap) pricing soon caused me to have so many requests that I was often turning away more work than I accepted. Over the years, I built my skills, added to my team, and today we’re a full-fledged design studio.
