We are delighted to share with you a new monthly series of testimonials from local business owners. We asked them just two questions and they happily shared ways the library's resources have had a direct impact on their business! Please enjoy our first testimonial from Jenny, and let us know if you want to share your own experiences as a library customer and small business owner!
1.) What business services have you used here at the library?
I have used the one-on-one appointments available at AHML to develop an online presence for my interior decorating business, Finishing Touch Decor by Jenny. Julie was professional and personable and helped me devise the best action plan for me.
We developed an action plan that included setting up my website, Facebook page, Pinterest and Instagram accounts. Julie took the time to show me how to set them up as well as put them to practical use on my own.
2.) What impact did using the library’s business services have on your business?
The services offered at AHML had a huge positive impact on my business. I now have a solid online presence where clients and potential clients can see my work. The website lets people see my work and learn a little about me. Facebook is a way to reach out and show the latest trends or tips on affordable decorating ideas. Pinterest has become a great resource for me to get ideas for projects and to collaborate with my clients.
Instagram in particular has been a huge springboard for me to connect with other decorators and designers from all over the country! I am now friends with designers whose work has been featured in popular magazines. I follow people who encourage, inspire and support my passion for decorating.
Because of using the business services offered at the library, my decorating business reaches thousands of people that I could have never reached on my own!
It's great business to use the library! Contact Julie if the library's services have had an impact on your business and you would like to participate in this monthly series of testimonials!
