Avid readers of The Candy Tree blog will know that I’ve been humming and hawing about changing my shop name so as to create a more unique brand [http://thecandytree125.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/whats-in-a-name/]
I just couldn’t decide whether or not it was a good idea, and the longer I left it, the more difficult it was becoming to take the plunge! So…I’ve come up with an idea, which in hindsight I should’ve really thought of before!
I’ve opened up a shop on Folksy with my new name…(drum roll please) Emma Dickie Design!
So my task for this week is to fill up my new shop with goodies and work on promoting my new brand. If it takes off then I will eventually change the name on Etsy and social media.
I had started to create new Twitter and Facebook accounts for my new name, however I’m going to instead update my existing account names when I’m ready. I’m not sure what I was thinking…there’s no sense in starting from scratch when I can easily just update the names and explain to existing followers about the change!
Wish me luck!
