The week I was famous in Face Painter land

http://criminaldefenselawyermd.com/criminal-defense/theft-crimes/shoplifting/ What a strange old week it’s been! The weirdness began when a face painting buddy – Colette of #Funkyfaces in Huddersfield – told me i was on the cover of a Facebook face paint group. Not exactly Vogue but it is a group well known to Face Painters.  I had to have a look!

I am always trying to think of new ideas for my business posts on Facebook. After all, it can get boring looking at the same old stuff on a newsfeed. I had an idea to write a poem. I wasn’t sure if it was a bit twee but with nothing to lose, I gave it a shot. Here is a link to the original post on Facebook.

Well, I was soooooo unprepared for what happened next. It went viral, particularly amongst the Face painting community. My little poem had loads of comments, likes and 61 shares (as I write this).

Neatly 9,000 people saw my poem all over the world. How cool is that? 61 shares was the official share number but I saw it cut n pasted on other people’s pages too. Then a woman called Tammy Rosecrans put this artwork with it too.

I think it must have resonated with fellow face painters. I kept getting people telling me how much they liked it that in the end i made a video to say thank you

I love the fact I was famous for five minutes in Face Painter land!

I love my repeat customers!

About a year ago, Face Ace received this awesome review from a local customer.

It is in my Facebook page, along with other reviews. If  you want to see them, they’re all here.

So, I was thrilled to be asked back yesterday to paint again for the same family.

I value all my customers but repeat customers are really special. If someone chooses you a second time, it means they really liked what you did first time and trust you to deliver.

I know there are lots of face painters around. Many of them offer fancy party packages and add-ons. I would rather keep to the basics and do them well.

I pride myself on attentive customer service, clear communication, being friendly, and flexible and of course great face painting. It’s nice to know my lovely customers value these things too.

Pay per face events

Often I get tagged on Facebook for birthday parties and stuff. Around this time of year though, it tends to be for “pay per face,” events. This are were the event organiser charges you a fee and you are free to make your own money at the event, sometimes with a donation. It sound so good doesn’t it? But in reality, often these events aren’t as busy as the promoter says they will be and the painter winds up out of pocket. I wrote a little post in Facebook about it here and my reasons for not accepting pay per face jobs, if you want to know more.

The weather has been crazy snowy here recently. So much so, I have been pining for Spring. I got to creating this pretty butterfly to tempt the weather gods. What do you think #faceacers?
