Creative Shop Talk with Wendy Batten

Jul 25, 2022

I just recently returned from a beautiful two week road trip. When I travel, I make it a point to shop small and visit as many shop owners as I can. Today, I want to share with you my experience and five important lessons that will help you be better found and look at occasional visitors in a new, lucrative way.


  1. Get Found - Are you on Google My Business, Google Maps, are you in local business directories, etc? There is such value in being found by new people.
  2. Get Reviews - Include them on your website, Google My Business, and social media platforms. They matter.
  3. Shop Front & Signage - Is it visibly appealing, inviting and clear?
  4. Do local businesses know you? - It’s all in the power of conversation. When other local businesses talk up your shop, it only brings more people in.
  5. A reminder - take the vacation! - Refocus. Reset. Take care of your mental health and wellbeing. Make this a priority. It will help your business in the long run!


Put yourself in a position where you are easily found by as many awesome new humans as possible.
