Here’s an update on my business in 2023. What happened at the end of 2022 that made me COMPLETELY GET RID OF WEBSITE IN A DAY and what I am currently offering in order to still make money.
One of the things I’ve loved about Instagram is how honest I can be about my entrepreneurial journey. YouTube doesn’t seem like you can do that, but I am breaking the mold.
When I started 2022 I pivoted my business because I had a 3 month old I stayed home with 24/7. I started offering website in a day as my only service and it worked really well in the beginning! I had systems set up that allowed me to work only during nap time and then I found a babysitter for the day of the website design and I brought it great income! And then it started not working…
I don’t know if clients started expecting more from a 5 page website in a day or if I wasn’t communicating well what the service will be or if clients just didn’t align, but it wasn’t working and I was getting bad anxiety about it.
So I took website in a day off my website all together in the end of October. Which was super scary because that was the main thing making me money and I changed it to website in a week. Since doing that I haven’t received even one consultation call!
I don’t know. If I get the right client fit, then yes. But it is still a really big struggle working with a 1 year old at home (I did find her care once a week PRAISE).
When I started my biz in 2018 I did social media as my main service. I have a few social media clients I have had for a long time who appreciate me and that is what I need right now, so I am focussing on serving them. I am also helping one of my clients with their podcast a little more and doing their editing as well as their social media marketing. (Don’t hire me for your podcast editing, just doing it for them because I love them). So that is what my business is going to look like (currently) in 2023.
This is what I need right now – to feel appreciated. I have also looked into getting a part time job because I am an extrovert working at home alone all day. I will let you know what happens!
I still have my two courses that are Squarespace related and I continue to occasionally promote those which brings in some income and I plan to continue updating and serving the students in those courses.
