What if you created that paycheck for yourself? --Kris Loya 

Our guest co-hosts this week are the creative power couple, Kris and Steve Loya! Kris creates "paintbrush meditations" in watercolors and Steve is known for his multi-media, fantastical Splotch Monsters who live on Splotch Monster Island. 

Kris recently quit an abusive job and is going ALL IN on her creative business. She is dedicating much of her time to helping Steve further the Splotch Monster brand while also pursuing licensing opportunities for her art. 

This is a conversation relevant to all creators working hard to create their own income streams. We can't wait for you to hear the excitement from Kris and Steve. Every day is Saturday when you do what you love, JellyVisionaries! 

Don't you dare wait until retirement to pursue your dreams! The time is now because we can't do yesterday. 

As always, we believe in you!

Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary, or artistic production of which he is the author. --Article 27 of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights 

Get excited, JellyVisionaries because you are big-time property owners! As creators, you have intellectual property that if properly claimed and protected, gives you excusive rights that can lead to additional revenue potential through licensing opportunities. 

We breakdown several kinds of intellectual property (IPs) that are relevant to creatives, including copyrights, industrial design rights, trademarks, and trade dress. 

Protecting your intellectual property is just one of the many steps to success through licensing. This is all about combining your artistic vision with something that sells. Be a smARTist!

Licensing Expo May 23-25, 2017 

 

We will have another Jellysode all about licensing in the near future--stay tuned! Are you ready to start protecting your original creations? We hope so! 

If this episode got you psyched, motivated, energized, entertained, etc--we'd love an iTunes or Stitcher review or an email!

Get Customers Addicted To Your Business: Ep. 236

There are no traffic jams along the extra mile. ~ Roger Staubach

 

A recent experience with the Starbucks and Peet's Coffee apps have us off and running about the importance of the customer experience. Jelly loves Peet's coffee, but Starbucks won her business by delighting her with their mobile app.

Lesson learned! You don't have to have the best product to succeed, but you do need to provide an unforgettable experience that leaves every customer feeling a positive emotion and/or identifying with a posiive quality. 

 

How can you get your customers under your influence and addicted to your business? 

 

  • Use snail mail to give your customer a surprising experience. Isn't it nice to get something other than a bill in the mail? 
  • Keep improving your product instead of pushing existing customers into a bigger sale. 
  • Do something your competition isn't doing. 
  • Create a sticky experience. Modcloth is a great online example! 
  • Do 20% more than what is expected. Always. 
  • Be a generous resource for your clients. 
  • Eliminate any friction between the customer want and the sale. Make it very, very easy to buy from you. 
  • Get personal (this is where small can really compete with BIG)
  • Hang out online with your customers. Complaints online equals priceless intel. Reward your brand evangelists—the ones who are singing your praises on social media.
  • Reward your loyal customers.
