Do you need a website for your business?

⁣I have a presence on social media, is it still necessary to have a website? ? ⠀

If you’re a business owner on the fence about getting a website, I’ll save you some time — you need one but not a self-hosted one when you get started.⠀

Since social media channels like Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn give you a way to connect with customers and sell products at the same time; you might wonder why you would need anything but a social media presence to succeed in the modern world.⠀

While there’s nothing wrong with using social media to your advantage, it’s important to remember that there is more to marketing than having a social presence. ⠀

A website gives your fashion business a homebase, your clients can visit when they want to learn more about you and shop from you. You can show your authority as a growing brand on your website, gives you unlimited ways to nurture your leads into sales, gives you access to analytics and insights to build your buyer personas and so much more.

A website opens you up to a wider market searching for what you offer through search engines like Google & Bing. The best part is, you have complete control over a self-hosted site, so your website doesn’t just disappear for some unknown violation unlike social media pages.⠀

Finally, although your social media profile will help you to connect with people who are interested in your product or service, it is very limited. You need a website and you can start with a free Blogger or free WordPress site till you are financially ready to build a self-hosted website. I would advise you to buy a domain name though which is pretty cheap and link it with your free sites.

Do you think a website is necessary or your fashion business? Let’s discuss…⠀

The Dangers of Procrastination

The Dangers of Procrastination

It’s easy to find reasons to delay action, wait or postpone working on your dreams. Lots of amazing ideas never see the light of day because people keep procrastinating and refuse to take action. I know I am guilty of this but thankfully this year has been different.

Procrastination is not just a thief of time, but also an enemy and a limitation to success. Stop procrastinating and waiting for the perfect time. Take action this week. You can start by turning your fashion design dreams into a reality with our online and physical fashion courses. It’s time to start that clothing line or rid yourself of the headaches you have been facing with your fashion business.

Visit our website at www.martwayne.com for lots of fashion entrepreneurship articles that will help you start or grow your fashion business or choose that fashion course, such as the Online Fashion Entrepreneurship Course that will help you transform your fashion business. ⠀⠀

Keep learning and increasing your knowledge

Keep learning and increasing your knowledge

You may be very passionate about your business, but this creative energy isn’t enough. Successful businesses require more than just passion, they require innovation.⠀

You need to keep learning new ways to make each aspect of your business better from production to marketing, and all the other aspects. ⠀

Take the time to improve your craft and look for likeminded individuals who you can learn from. You can get trained, take courses, attend seminars and explore lots of other ways to make up for your deficiencies.By doing that you will be laying the foundation for continuous growth.⠀

Of course naturally I woud tell you to come to Martwayne. We offer various Physical and Online Courses in Sewing and Patternmaking, Fashion Entrepreneurship, Sewing Techniques for Perfect Finishing, Creative and Fashion Illustration and Creative Patternmaking and Origami Courses. And best of all, you can register for our online courses anywhere in the world! Our reviews are excellent (you can check them out on Google) and our fees are very affordable for the quality of training you get. ⠀

How Can I Help You Solve Your Problem?

How Can I Help You Solve Your Problem?

How can I help you solve your problem?  It's a question I find myself asking over and over again.  Well a cross between this and "How can I assist?"  Since I actively started blogging again, I have been inundated with calls and messages from people who are either frustrated about the growth of their fashion business or are clueless on how to begin. It is quite difficult keeping up with the different issues so I decided to find a better way to do this.


What I actually found surprising was the fact that some who reached out to me were not even in the fashion industry. I guess some of the things we blog about, such as How to Use Storytelling to Market Your Brand cuts across all industries.

 

This short form seeks to identify the issues you are currently facing. Hope it helps you articulate your problems so we can find solutions to it.

I Paid my first Affiliate Fee :-) – You can also make money online

I Paid my first Affiliate Fee :-) – You can also make money online

So I paid my very first affiliate fee last week to someone I did not know who had referred a student to us and she paid in full. I'm sure she was shocked!  Nothing beats getting a call from a stranger thanking you for referring someone much less getting a credit alert, especially one you were not expecting especially, in a month like January that has 50 days! 

affiliate testimonial

Over time we have come to realise that many people come to Martwayne based on referrals. And we just discovered the perfect way to say thank you. We don't take your referral or your trust for granted and we will deliver.  And NO you are not dropping any money neither is it a scam. This lady probably didn't even know about our Affiliate Programme which we launched last year. My conscience told me I had to keep my word even if the person was not aware of it so I made sure I got her number, thanked her profusely and asked for her bank details.  Was it hard??? YES! Lol! It was tough I tell you. I could have done a lot with that N14,250 but I felt so much better after doing the transfer.  

So anyway... All you need to do is tell someone who wants to study fashion design either offline or online about us anywhere you are in the world! This applies only to those who pays their fees in full and to courses over N65,000.  We have Online and Physical classes they can register for. 


How do I benefit from this?


It's simple!  Fill the form below and we will add you to our Affiliate list.   You will get a referral fee for anyone who signs up through you. 

At the moment, we can only do bank transfers (within Nigeria) and Paypal transfers.  Yes! You can be anywhere in the world and still benefit from this because we have online courses as well.


How do I Earn from this?


There are 3 ways:


Option 1:

If you know someone who wants to go to a Fashion School online or offline, you can send them our website to choose the Course of their choice.


Option 2:


If you know the specific page you want to send them to (you can find it in the search box at the top of the page), eg Advanced Course in Fashion Design, once you get to the page, copy the website link and send it to them.  


Option 3:


We can send you details of a new Course or service or even a blog post which you can share with the prospect in an email so please watch out for our emails. The link to the website is in the email.  All you need to do is send it in a broadcast to your contacts or announce it on social media. 


Once the person signs up through any of these means and pays the fees in full, you get paid for it!  It's that simple.  

How will you track registrations to me?


The Course application form states they should include the name and phone number of the person who referred them.  We simply call you up and get your details.  That was exactly what we did with this lady.  We simply asked the student for the referral's details and called them up.

 

You can also follow up on them to be sure they register and when they do, just contact us at [email protected] so we can crosscheck against our list of registrations.  Once we confirm the person is registered and has paid the full fee, we will give you your referral fee. The referral fees applies to both our online and offline courses above N65,000 only.  

We are also extending this referral fee to our Online and Offline Strategy Consulting Sessions to Fashion Professionals who need to grow their businesses.  The referral fee is a bit less but it still costs you nothing to refer us to them. More details on this in another post.


Can I apply my Affiliate Fees as a discount towards my own Fashion Course? 


No sadly you cannot. You can only claim affiliate fees for referring someone else. But think of it this way... you can save the money you make from referring others and when the money is complete, use it to apply for a Course of your choice at Martwayne. 🙂

 

You can also tell them about our Martwayne-Carbon collaboration which gives them the ability to pay in instalments.  More about that here:  https://www.martwayne.com/carbon/

 

If you have questions, you can always contact me on Instagram or on WhatsApp on 08143402567 or send an email to [email protected] .

 

As I said earlier, we do have online and offline courses coming up next month so please click the home button to see the dates they begin.

Cheers!
