It’s really important to me that Create & Thrive is about something larger than just me and what I can teach you… what I can share with you.
I want this place to be for, and about, YOU.
I want C&T to be a community of people with a common goal – to take the path less travelled and live a life that allows us to make a living doing work we love.
I want to help you and your business grow.
I want to put you centre stage.
I want to help you get your name out there!
So… I’ve come up with a bit of a fun way to do just that 🙂
I want to feature you + your work on the C&T Facebook Page Cover!
Here’s how we’re gonna do it.
Choose a photo to share with us. It needs to feature your product, your workspace, and/or you. Any of the 3 is fine, though obviously if it’s a photo of you, it’s good if you’ve got your product in there too! (Please don’t submit any photos with kids in them unless they’re models in product shots and and you have EXPRESS PERMISSION to share their photo, or they’re your own kids. Ideally, I want photos of the maker – that’s YOU!)
Edit it to the correct facebook cover size – 851px wide by 315px high. You can do this easily online using PicMonkey.
Email the photo to me (jessica AT epherielldesigns.com is the best email to use). In your email, include your name, the name of your business, a link to your website/shop, and a short blurb about what you do (no more than one paragraph). This info will go up with your photo.
Keep an eye out on the C&T Facebook Page for your image to be featured! The timeframe of image rotations will depend on how many submissions I get.
Please make sure you pick an AWESOME photo. If you send me a photo that I don’t think is up to scratch, I’ll email you back and let you know.
Here’s an example of one of my photos that I’ve got up there at the moment.
Now, this is from a professional photo shoot, so I don’t expect yours to be quite as awesomely lit (I know I couldn’t get a photo that good on my own!) but it needs to be bright, beautiful, crisp, and have good contrast.
I plan on making this an ongoing thing if you guys are keen!
Also, please don’t hesitate to send in a few different images – I’ll either choose my favourite, or hold on to them and feature them spread out over time.
If you like this idea, please let me know in the comments below, and share it with your peeps – I’d love to feature as many people as possible!
