THE Big News

posted in: Ambitions, Little Love Media, Social Media 159 comments

 

Last week, I teased you with the fact that I had news. Three things in fact.

Today, I can finally share one of the three things.

The biggest thing.

Friends, I am no longer a stay-at-home mother.

I am now a work-at-home mother.

Meet my third baby, Little Love Media.

People? I am beyond excited. Little Love Media is designed to offer social media consulting services to small businesses. If you’re a freelance photographer, an Etsy store owner, a newly published author, or even a blogger who wants to take her blog further – I’m your gal. Do go read more about my little company here, and check out my carefully (and painstakingly) crafted list of services and price packages here.

For November, I’m offering a 20% discount on all services booked in that month (except Monthly Maintenance Packages)!

So here’s where I’m going to ask a favor of you.

If you have been thinking about elevating your social media presence but don’t have time, can you think of me?

If you have a friend who is a small-business owner who wants to venture into social media to boost her business, can you point her my way?

If you’re awesome at social media already, can you help me pimp Little Love Media out?

I’m so excited. And scared. Mostly excited. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. To finally jump in headfirst is exhilarating and crazy and just right.

Thank you all for your constant and unwavering support of my writing, of my endeavors, of me.

I’d like to give shout outs to my friends Vanita, for giving me some sound business advice, and Kimberly for being so patient and awesome with me as we worked on the website. 

Over the next week or so, I’ll be revealing the other two big things for November. Stay tuned!

    This is SO perfect for you. The website looks great. Love the colors and the logo. I also thinks it’s very clever how the Twitter and other accounts (even the blog tab) connect back here to YOU, the person behind the company. NO need to duplicate efforts or ask people to follow you as two entities. I love this concept. Wishing you the best of luck. Though you won’t need luck as you’re clearly a hard worker with talent and gumption.

    Congrats, Alison!
