    You were very helpful, no worries! Honestly, had this not been a dear, sentimental thing for my mother – I may have not attempted this either. I did some minor photo restoration work when I first started taking Graphic Design courses some years ago, but that was the extent of my photo abilities. I am not a photographer myself (I’m a graphic…[Read more]

    Thanks so much James! I really appreciate all your insight and compliments. I did give it my best. I figured for being a novice, it didn’t come out half bad, lol.

    I’m not zoomed in on the photo at the moment, but it’s entirely possible those points you made about the nose are valid. I had to paint/fill in most of the nose, since the original…[Read more]

    • I hope i was helpful. I am no expert at photography. I am a painter myself. I scanned 3000+ family photos for the family to have copies. I would have never attempted to fix a photo as damaged as this one. I know you did a huge amount of work and the results are awesome! I was just trying to give a little feedback. I am blown away at your results.…[Read more]

    I did! Photoshop CC, the latest version. 🙂 Thank you for the compliment as well!

    Thank you Lacy! 🙂

    It took me about 5.5 hours to do, scanning included.

    An illustration that I was commissioned to do for a former co-worker!

    The backstory behind it is this – one of her closest friends is about to have a baby, and she wanted to present this illustration to her as part of her baby shower gift. For reasons I am not aware of, it became a joke between the two friends that when the baby was born, my…[Read more]

    Definitely understandable – one of the things I read while doing my research is how a brand’s ( or company’s) social media presence should have a consistent ‘voice’ regardless of who’s managing the platforms. Which makes total sense. Regarding Penzey’s – do you mean Penzey’s Spices? I haven’t, but I’m going to look into them now! I really…[Read more]

    Hi Andrea – so sorry for my late reply to this! Absolutely agree though, personality and humor and humanness is key to connecting with people. I’m starting to learn though that not every brand has the same type of humor and personality. It’s also finding that balance between personal while still professional, which is one of the biggest challenges…[Read more]

    • Growing EC, I’m striking a balance as well and finding my brand voice. EC is me so it should “sound” like me, which I think it does. (I don’t want that to change as it grows and communication moves into other’s hands) Have you seen Penzy’s on FB? My G-d, they combine volatile political issues with their spices and it works for them. It’s the…[Read more]

    Thank you for your insights everyone! Unfortunately, it seems in light of recent events with Facebook and a lot of my findings from extensive research, the conclusion appears to be that it may not be the best platform for our business to invest all our time and energy into. Or at the very least, it shouldn’t be the only platform. I’ve looked up…[Read more]

    I work M-F from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm I’m afraid, so chances are I won’t be able to attend 🙁 I work out in Troy, but live Downriver. I’m sorry!

    I was kind of worried that maybe Facebook wasn’t the ideal choice anymore, especially with the new algorithm changes. I know selling products isn’t the only goal, but I do believe it is the ultimate one. Can I ask how recently it was you worked at this association? Would you personally consider it a better investment to increase better visibility…[Read more]

    • I left the association about almost 2 years ago, but my job after that also dealt with vendors providing products for the team I was on to review. I think that email and google adwords are always a good option because the people who will most likely use what your company sells will be searching for those items specifically. Most companies that are…[Read more]

    Hi everyone!

    I was hoping to get some insight regarding social media marketing/management.

    I create graphics for and help run the Facebook page for my work. I am currently also trying to put together a proposal on how to improve our marketing and increase customer engagement, sales, and reviews with the help of Facebook.

    • @julietibus? Is this something you can advise on?

    • To be honest most Facebook pages have been suffering from this same issue. People are leaving Facebook or limiting their time on that platform. So if you are looking to sell more products try utilizing LinkedIn or Instagram. On LinkedIn, some good articles/white papers go a long way. I worked at an association where I handled all the promotional…[Read more]

      • Same here – typically I post and “crickets”… Plus, I’m having a REALLY hard time now that we know Facebook has been under-handed and unethical with our data.

        Interesting that on the Balkan Music scene suddenly the so-called “Reggaeton” beat, which is usually in Hispanic culture and music.
