When being asked how I have managed to promote Golden Days Images into the real world, people are often surprised a whole posse was not involved!
My motivation may make some feel depressed but I am the proud owner of 100 rejection letters, I don’t want to go back to the words “Thank you for your time” and “We wish you well in the future.”
I know on all the marketing material and website stuff I write “We and our” a lot, its not that I have multiple personalities its just I have a vision that Golden Days Images will be bigger than just me in the future.
What I love about starting a small business is you don’t have to go through many meetings to make a simple decision. If you want something done either do it your self or call a professional!
Of course I’ve already made many mistakes but the beauty of it all is I can learn from them!
At the start one of my major mistakes was trademarking the name “Beyond Time Images” not realising I also had to register the business name with Consumer Affairs Victoria.
While Beyond Time Images was not taken it was similar to Beyond Images, which meant I had to change the name!
It was frustrating because I already had business cards and marketing material but I eventually came up with Golden Days Images.
Personally I think the name change worked in my favour as it embodies the old world glamour my business presents.
I really feel in my gut that I am FINALLY on the right path and I am looking forward to what the New Year will bring for Golden Days Images!
