The first time someone said to include a “call to action” in my social media posts, I really didn’t get it.

Then someone else said “do you ever tell people how to work with you?!” And a penny dropped.
Because…. erm…. I didn’t.

I realised I was being a bit like a princess locked in a tower – you pretty much had to fight through a bramble thicket, and conquer a dragon to become my client….

The first time I did a social media post and told people some of the options for how to commission me, I got a sale!  It sounds really obvious, doesn’t it?  But I’m pretty sure I’m not the only creative person who has been acting like Rapunzel and then wondering why they’re not getting any work!

Soooo, in my Facebook Group I’ve been doing come cheerleading to help other people not make the same mistakes I have, and I’ve made a sheet to work through with lots of ideas 🙂 And here it is!

If you have a go, do let me know how you get on.
