Welcome to The Halo Effect! I’m so delighted to get to know you.
Here’s a little of what this blog is all about. It belongs to the etsy shop of the same name and was created as a response to all of the skills I learned while developing my vintage and handmade shops, ConstantlyAlice and Connie and Allie.
Since I started out with a *VERY* tight budget, I taught myself graphic design and created my own headers, logos and marketing materials. Because I was limited to what I could learn on my own, I used easily accessible (and often free) tools.
Eventually, I decided to branch out my Etsy shop and develop my own website as a central location for my 3 shops. Again, I turned to the excellent free and inexpensive resources available on the net to teach myself how to build a customized website of my very own.
Now I’m ready to share what I’ve learned with you! I want to help new etsy sellers and small businesses develop a great brand at a minimal expense. This blog will provide free assessments of etsy shops, and will offer courses at low (or no!) cost to help you learn to build your marketing and design skills.
Feel free to contact me at any time with questions or feedback. If I don’t have an answer, I’ll help you find someone who does!
