  1. Just finished my first quote/proposal for a potential client. Amusingly, similar to my old company, it's for a pair of news websites and a print service. Sending it out tomorrow after a few more eyes proofread it.
  2. I created the Testimonials page for my website and then put together a Facebook post for it (an likely other media). Facebook Post: Switched to a screenshot, instead of a direct link to the ad. Advertising on Facebook has yielded the most results so far business-wise. I scored the recommendations by messaging my LinkedIn list of clients. LinkedIn literally has a "Ask for a Recommendation" button. So I did. On related news ... You'll get another "Thrym's Office" thread in the near future. I'll be rearranging my "dining room" for my office and moving my wife's "crafting" and "writing" station to my current office. It will require some cabling and perhaps some electrical outlet work. Naturally, there will be some office layout and hanging of shelving for finished miniatures, etc. Stay tuned.
  3. Someone asked me on Facebook for the recipe for her skin tones. I finalized what I used: Liner: Reaper Midnight Black Shadow: Reaper Dragon Blue Midtone: Reaper Ashen Blue Highlight: Reaper Sample Color, "Horizon Blue" [link to my Pearltrees catalog entry for it] Enjoy.
  4. "The new phone book is here! The new phone book is here!" Alright, they aren't phone books and yes, they still exist and no I would never bother with an ad in one or listing myself in one. BUT The new BUSINESS CARDS are here! The new BUSINESS CARDS are here!
  5. Highly Recommended! Sweet! For those who are interested Alignable.com is a Local Business-to-Business similar to LinkedIn. Foothold Digital on Alignable
  6. Business cards ordered. Finally. Should be here by next Wednesday.
  7. So, in addition to the job status change it's been fun week or two for incidental issues. A little over a week ago I backed into a pole with my car effectively sidelining the vehicle until I scrape together the deductible. My phone bricked today. So I had to spend nearly $100 to upgrade my phone. Luckily, today I collected my first big deposit. Sadly, it's a check, so it wasn't immediately available for use. The world continues to rotate at least ... for now. When I finish the job I got the deposit for today that's another $1,800. Just have to hustle.
  8. Thanks. Yeah, I never intended to put it in there. And that error for the privacy thing is a recent issue that's cropped up. I would expect that people will be getting it from secure links all over for a bit until the AV/Internet Security software companies get that whole thing settled. Thank you as well. Yeah, the insurance has been mentioned before, and I've actually seen it first hand with the company I just left. /**** REDACTED ****/ No point rehashing that.
  9. Caught the error on the missing t after the fact. Naturally. Sadly, nothing I can do once it's in their inbox. The privacy error is actually a browser error with anti-virus/security programs. Firefox suffers from it the most with a few of the various AV's that do Internet security like Avast. Annoyingly, not much I can do about that either except not use https in my marketing and it will switch automatically when they get to the site. That first link was a copy/paste and the rest were typed out and that's how typos occur. Thank you for looking and testing. Always appreciated. Future email campaigns will be more sales/expertise related.
  10. Ran an e-mail campaign for my old contact list. https://mailchi.mp/179d3388215e/thom-prati-has-formed-foothold-digital-a-new-web-agency-to-assure-your-digital-ascent Have a look.
  11. Thanks to a gofundme donation and the "winnings" from this year's dart league, I have setup the first hosting server for Foothold Digital. I am in the process of migrating some websites that I own first. To get them off my old company's server. These include Thrym's Table (my painting blog), Markshire (NWN game site), Markshire Studios (WoldStand basing sales site) and Miniature Gaming Guide (miniature hobby industry news site) as well as my wife's Wreaths by Jenn website. I'll also be transferring @ub3r_n3rd's website when that comes due. And perhaps at least one more friend site before the week is out.
  12. Created a Facebook page for Foothold Digital (@FootholdDigital) https://www.facebook.com/FootholdDigital/
  13. Kickstarter Acquisition Received my CAV 2 Paint Order I only ordered the paints but I also received two Mechs that look like a beefy Marauder/Warhammer mix from Battletech Edit: After checking the Kickstarter and the Catalog on Reaper, I don't see the version of the mech they sent me. Edit: I found it on their news page at Talon Games which is apparently called, Enforcer ...
  14. Additional Acquisitions Report I won "Honu." A resin miniature from Kaha Miniatures, in Paris, France. The reminds me of Spike from TMNT in the more recent cartoon. This is Kaha's assembled shot from the giveaway. The package came unscathed and they included their promotional card:
