New styles ready

Today I received these photos from my cousin Shilpi in India. She took the photos today while at the supplier, checking everything one last time.  I can't wait to get them because I know they will be even more awesome in person. 

I am so excited the two new styles are finished and will be on the way to San Antonio tomorrow.  

They will be here just in time for spring shopping and warm weather!

The two new styles are from a new supplier who has increased the level of quality and comfort by 200 percent.  I received samples from them eight weeks ago and have been wearing them and showing them off.  People stop by constantly to ask when the new ones will arrive.

Results from twitter

When I started using Twitter just a few months ago, I never imagined that it would be such a positive experience.  At first I did it just because everyone else was, but then I started connecting with women all over the country who were doing exactly what I was—trying to market their businesses.  Through Twitter, I found a wonderful site:  I'm not even sure exactly how I stumbled upon it.  Following women-owned businesses on Twitter opened up a new avenue for marketing Lizzie Lou Shoes.

Womentorz™ is a marketplace of the latest inventions made by women where each inventor has their own storefront.

I immediately connected with Melinda Night and Jennifer Cannon.  These two women had a vision for an online market place for women just like me.

When people now ask me why I use Twitter, I just laugh because I used to ask people the same question.  Twitter gives me a chance to talk to women all over the country and learn marketing tips & strategies, and hopefully make new customers.
