Honored to have Aaron from "Ohio Valley Glass" ask us to be a speaker at his Business of Glass Class which will be going on the weekend of September 2nd and the 3rd. It's hard to do business with both of us and not see or know our commitment to customer service, the industry as a whole, and to our local community in general. You probably also know that Joe and Myself (Dustin) donate about 1 to 2 hours of time on average every single day and have since we opened to a local business or glassblower in the industry. Whether that's cutting vinyl for local football team helmets to helping to set up templates for Websites, Social, and Product Photography. To consulting on best SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and business listing practices. We genuinely want to see those around us do well. On many occasions even to our fellow competitors and even at the expense to our own business or mental well being. At the beginning of each day, both of us make the choice to be a beacon of change. To stay humble and remember all the things that people did to help us on our journey the past 4 years with the shop and the past 10 years with our various other ventures. And in honor of that tradition and the opportunity given by Aaron at OVG we would love to extend an invitation to any glass shop, blower, or a customer interested in getting a holistic view on the industry. Tickets are $400 for both days or $200 for one. If you're a local blower, tuition can be made in glass. Classes and Demos will begin at 10 am and continue on through the evening and there will be a party to cap off the night. Dustin will be speaking at 2 pm on Saturday, September 2nd. Depending on time and class interest he will be speaking on the following: Holistic Approach to marketing - Ways to protect yourself in case of Social Account Deletion Basic Website Design and Best Practice Social Media Syndication and time-saving ways to post to multiple networks Basic Search Engine Optimization things. Basic Product Photography Tips to help showcase your artwork Whats and What Not to do when selling work to a shop Even though this class is a little short notice, we tend to try to not half-ass things. So as an extra bonus and to help to ensure your success, some perks you will get if you mention Nhalables when purchasing a ticket from @ohiovalleyglass are the following 1. Dustin will be available to help with setting up your web domain and publishing your website. 2. He will discuss specific best practice situations for Search Engine Optimization with each student upon request. 3. He will provide for free 6 months of Customer Service and Support when it comes to all things discussed within his class. The classes will vary but there is a plethora of information for new glassblowers and shops alike. If you are a brand new shop or an artist this is not the class to miss. All information on other topics and seminars will be posted on Ohio Valley Glass's Social account and questions on my seminar can be asked in the DM. Thank you again to everyone who shows us all the love and support. We are excited to continue to watch your light expand and look forward to seeing you there!
