It’s been a while since I have posted on Vintage Flowers Girls. I wanted to thank you to all of my followers and new followers who are supporting me on my blog. There are a number of reason why I decided to not post on this blog. It has taken me sometime to rediscover my mission and passion. There were a couple of events in my life that challenged me to really listen to my own voice. Keeping up with a blog is difficult for me not because of lack of content, but because the financial responsibility of it. I support myself with everything I do. My blog is about following my passion and listening to myself. I lost my own voice for a while because there were certain people in my life that made me feel like I was not valuable. I also have found it challenging to promote my brand on my blog and social media. The disappointment in not selling products under my brand and not feeling like I was being authentic about who I am. I decided to start my own domain and another blog called Sparkle Diaries and Vintage Flowers Fashions. I believe that these brands could be a success, but I need to focus on giving my followers my authentic self. I am not saying that all of my brands where a complete failure because I learned so much about being creative
My blog is as authentic. This is a something I decided to do because I wanted to promote my brand and show my passion for my brand. I will be focusing on Chloe and Isabel and vintage fashions for now. The support I am getting from my Chloe and Isabel store has really been great. Support is want I need to continue to feeling motivate to continue to promote really great products over time. People have been really great feedback on my brand on Instagram and Pinterest. More people are request more information about my brand and products. I am asking other bloggers and entrepreneurs for support and help with promoting my great product to the world. If you know any great people who help with building brands and promoting products that would be great.
I am bringing brand new content twice a week. Hopefully, this will keep all of my Vintage Flowers Girls happy. Thank you for the continued support. Stayed tuned for more changes to this blog It means the world to me!

I am going to start posting some business advice posts on my blog for my Vintage Flowers Girls would are interested in starting their own boutique or want their boutique to become successful. I was very intimidated by starting up my own business online because there are so many great products out there. Before starting my blog, I decided to start my own blog and social media pages. Make sure you get your name out there before you start your own business. This will make it easier to build your clients instead of starting from scratch. Building a customer base can take years. You will have to be consistent with your marketing in order for your business to thrive. Facebook ads are a great way to get more exposure to your blog or online boutique.
Vintage Flowers Clothing and Fashions is my first boutique that I opened in 2015. I wanted to sell vintage inspired fashion items to girls who wanted to feel pretty on the inside and outside. I struggled to find customers for the first month my business opened online. Marketing was going to be critical to the success of my store. I started marketing my store on my blog and my social media networks. Slowly, customers started rolling in and making purchases on my site. I wanted to get my site more exposure. I tried Facebook Ads for the first time last month and I am also running an ad this month. Facebook ads have help me generate almost $1,000 in sales within 2 weeks. I have already made $500 this week in online sales from my current ad that is running this week and next week. Here are some tips to help you generate money from your Facebook ads.
- Make sure you have multiple pages on your ads. If you sell multiple products, then display the products on the ad. This allows customers to know the diverse products that are available on your sites.
- Offer a discount to your new customers. This will allow your customers to come back to your site and use the coupon code to make a purchase.
- Your images should be clear and colorful. Use images that attract people to your site.
- Say what makes your online site unique. Separate your site from other sites.
- Know your audience. Make sure you are targeting the right demographic for your products. This will allow people to want to purchase your product to be able to see your ad.
You have to pay for Facebook ads, but they are well worth the money. Follow these tips and you will see the money roll in. Stay tuned for how to build your own online boutique.
