New Year, New work.

I am slowing trying to engage my brain back into the working world! The Christmas break was good but like any holiday it takes a while to get back to work! In the New year I will start to paint more pictures for my Nursery Art category, Baby Keepsake category and Kids Wall Art category category. I have also recently added a new category to my site - Name Art category.

I really like these prints as I use my illustrated alphabet to create the child's name. I also add Mum's name, Dad's name and brother/sister's name and date of birth. Each print is associated with an animal, for example there is a super hero cat whizzing through the sky, the name title of the print is Super Hero - John, Born- 24.2.2010 etc.

These prints take quite a bit of work and are sent off site to be printed, because of this it can take a few days before dispatching but they are worth it!

You can purchase my Name Art on both of my kids wall art site CarlaDaly.com and CarlaDaly.co.uk

Happy Crimbo 09

I am starting to wind down my work this week. Sales are still coming in but by the end of this week they should be all finished. I have had a great year, still learning about seo and online marketing, I think I will never stop learning in that area! My Google Adwords campaign was a success so I hope to continue it into the New Year.

I want to thank all my customers for shopping on my children's wall art sites CarlaDaly.com and CarlaDaly.co.uk. It means so much to me to receive all the postitive feedback and that my customers spend their time spreading the word about my children's wall art. Also knowing that so many children are enjoying my art, now that makes for a good Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Paper Ads Vs Online Ads

Unicorn Theatre Advertisement

I have been incredibly busy recently, so much so that I haven't had time to blog or twitter. I am always looking for advertising opportunities and have been working on a google adword campaign which has taken up a lot of my time. I am going to write a dedicated post about my google adwords campaign as it has taken me a long time to understand how to use adwords.

I have also decided to do a nice little ad with the
Unicorn Children's Theatre in London. It will be on the back of all the programmes for the Cinderella pantomine, running from 6th Dec to 24th January. I don't really do any paper advertisements as I think my advertisment budget is best served online. The reason I went for the Unicorn Theatre was I felt it was my target audience and a nice way to spread the word about my online shop in the UK - CarlaDaly.co.uk

I would love to hear from anyone who runs a adwords campaign, I would great to hear how others have cracked the google empire!
