Marketing is truly magical. I’m no expert at all but I do appreciate the power of good free marketing.
I don’t currently have any marketing campaigns going for any of my platfoms but when I did I noticed a huge increase with traffic/sales to my sites.
I’m currently obsessed with TikTok (one video went viral!). There I share my crafting world in 15-60 second videos. I then post a full, in-depth tutorial on Instagram (IGTV). What I noticed on TikTok is that people can be super fancy with their clips. I am not that fancy but I strive to be! A quick marketing tactic that I noticed influencers use is “end frames”, a snippet at the end of their videos asking people to follow them. I wasn’t sure how to do this but I thought of all the free creative sites I use and finally figured out how to make one! Here’s how you can make one too:
scroll down for written instructions
Download the Canva mobile app- it’s free!
In the search bar type “TikTok end frame” – by selecting this it’ll be perfectly sized for your TikTok videos
Select ‘blank’ to create your own or select a template and modify to your liking
Once you’re happy with your design, download it and you now have a TikTok end frame you can add to all your videos!
Canva Mobile App Tips:
Take advantage of all the free illustrations, shapes, images, and stickers that Canva offers. I typed in “blob” to get random shapes.
You can also save up to 3 “brand colors” for free so you can easily change shape/font colors to match your brand.
To place images in a specific shape, go to the “shapes” tab and type in “frames”. You’ll then be able to put images in circles, squares, etc.
You’ll find animations (like my moving arrow) in the “stickers” tab.
By having this frame you’ll not only look professional but you’re also indirectly suggesting people to follow you. I hope by adding this to your videos you’re able to boost your following!
With shelter in place put in effect, I’m trying to keep busy (and sane) and decided to make a baby boy onesie for my new arrival coming June 2020.
I had a minor messed up with the peeling process after ironing on the design but since it’s for my own child I don’t mind the mess up. If it were a gift I would’ve made another one.
“Hi I’m Caleb” for our new little boy was made using the following:
1. Silhouette Cameo 3
2. Cricut Iron-on vinyl in black
Carter’s baby onesie in white
Just choose your favorite font and center the design so it’s even.
Flip your design so it’s reverse. This is for the cutting machine. Don’t forget to do this or it won’t iron on properly to the material.
Cut the design and iron on! That’s it! Super easy 5-10 minute craft and a personalized baby onesie for your little one.
Side Note: there was a minor issue with the “A” in Caleb because I tried peeling the clear plastic off of the vinyl when it was too hot. So please make sure to let it cool before trying to peel.
If you love this design but not up to making it yourself, you can head over to Mariesah Mina Design and purchase a onesie for the little one in your life. You can also shop my Instagram @mariesahminadesign
