Right now we are in the heart of wedding season, so finding time to work on the business rather that in the business is tough. Most of our days are spent filling orders, so it really easy to put other aspects of our business on the back-burner. We've had a bare-bones website since we've opened, acting as a place holder until we "had the time" to upgrade. The funny thing is, the longer we've been open, the busier we've been, and there really isn't any down time to work on the tasks at the end of the to-do list. One thing you learn quickly when you run your own business is this - if you want to get something done, you have to schedule it in to your day.
Now that we've made it past our 1 year mark, we finally carved out time in our schedule to work on labelwithlove.com. We knew our website desperately needed a face lift to better showcase our company and our labels, and wanted a site that was beautiful, straight-forward, and easy to navigate. After hearing all the rave reviews from a few savvy lady entrepreneurs, we decided to use the Squarespace platform to create our new site. If you're a novice (like us) when it comes coding, and you've ever spent hours upon hours trying to tinker with your Wordpress template, you will fall in love with how user-friendly Squarespace is. We could go on and on about our love affair with the Squarespace platform, but we will save that for another post!
We're still in the process of putting the final touches on the website, and plan to add an storefront within the next few months, but we love the new look so far. Feel free to have a look around and let us know what you think!
