    I want to welcome Richard Darling of Grey Fox Gallery & Frame with two locations / Bozeman MT / Belgrade Mt as our newest partner in LIFE. Richard is our first framer from Montana.




    PS. I really want to encourage all LIFE partners to submit a picture of a framing project along with a short description to be added to our gallery page. We want to build the relevant content even more on our site.
    I will be making changes to the Find a Framer page as time permits by adding a short description about your shop, we don't want the link page to appear to be a farm. Adding content will apparently help, if you have a website I will take information from there. If you want something else, please email it to me.
    By the way, the Find a Framer page currently has a page rank of 3.


    Now is the time to join LIFE.

    Laura DeRamus Grumbler in Training

    3/50

    This concept is very similar to the 3/50 project this is trying to spread. The concept behind that is that you pick three small businesses that you would miss if they were not around, then make it a point to spend $50 each month with locally owned. They give the stats on how much money that would generate and the figures are amazing.

    I sent out an email to clients on this concept and put it in my last newsletter that I mailed to people. Some responded that we were on their list of businesses they would miss, however I don't see them beating down my door to spend that $50.00! Down the road they will want something and wonder where we went! Clueless sometimes.

    I think this is a great concept as I think that the big box stores offer less and charge more for what people are actually getting. I also think they raise the prices on work quoted so they can look like the good guys when they discount those prices by a whopping 50%. Big box stores also have more buying power. Every one has their niche market but small guys have a hard time competing when it comes to $$$. I think you have to educate and spell out the advantages to what clients will receive from you on a regular basis. It is amazing that most people still do not know what to be sure they are getting from their framing project. How shocked are they when they find out what they didn't ask!

    I heard once at a seminar that there is a three year rule. Every three years the big box stores rework what they offer in their stores. They have a turn-over, if you will, of projects and introduce new services or departments they offer. More than three years ago many introduced framing to their aray of offerings and last year was their third year. So..many should have been phasing out framing and moving toward a new interest. Not sure this happened as I have been too busy trying to hold my own business together. I just know that being in business is hard now than it every has been. I look to the end of the month and if there is enough to pay the rent and bills....I know I can stay another month. Who would have thought it would come to this. Long gone are the days when you just opened your doors and they came with money in hand and wanted to spend. Now they come, look at what you have to offer, say they love it and say they will be back. Compliments do not pay the rent.

    :thumbsup: Thanks for joining Jill,

    Want to join Jill and others in LIFE? Are you wondering what LIFE is all about?


    This really is all about self promotion of your Local Frame Shop. Hopefully as you promote yourself using LIFE we can build a brand that people will recognize when ever they see it. We encourage your creativity as you use LIFE in promoting your business. We will develop marketing ideas together as the program builds. We encourage you to share your ideas with other members.


    You are also encouraged to invite others that you know to join as well. Some independent framers have a problem with the idea of cooperating with other local framers. I encourage you to think of it like this. Many car dealers will co-advertise together to get the reach and bang for the buck. The idea is to cooperate until you can get the customers in the door, and then you have a chance to impress them with your skills and selection. You first have to get them in the door.


    The #1 objective of LIFE is to make consumers think of their LOCAL INDEPENDENT FRAMING EXPERT instead of the Big Box, Always On Sale (Never Really On Sale) framing stores.
