Asking People For Stuff is the Worst

Lesley Tweedie

File 29420

Introducing the brand new Little Independent! We've got a totally new website and a new concept and we're jumping up and down.  The only problem is we would like to add more designs and that means asking people for something and as you may know, asking people for stuff is the worst.  As a small business person, I get more pitches coming my way than a major league catcher.  I wanna turn off the lights and pretend I'm not home, but here I am pitching for logos.  

I sent an e-mail out this morning.  Here's an excerpt:

Being asked to do stuff is the worst which is why I don't love asking you this.  Can we add your store's logo to our new Local Design collection?  We'll pay you if anyone orders a t-shirt or mug featuring your shop.  All you have to do is reply to this e-mail and attach a png or jpg of your logo.  You don't have to print, stock or ship.

If you're like "What are you even talking about?" please check out our About-Us page.

If you're thinking: "I don't even know who the heck you are" please check out Our Team.

If you're like "Ok fine. Here's my logo.  Go away, I have work to do." I'll be your best friend and now I'll leave you alone.  Have a great day. 

Thanks for your time and please order a t-shirt or mug from our site because I'm asking nice and it will make you look cool. xoxo Lesley
