Small Business School: SEO 101

Small Business School Guide on the Basics of SEO to Help Boost Your Brand Presence

If you own a business or run a website, you're probably already familiar with the term 'SEO'—or Search Engine Optimization. It's almost everyone's dream to end up on the first page of Google's search results. But chances are, even after thorough research and trial and error, you still have a long list of questions about how this heavily debated and complex topic actually works. Welcome to a quick crash course on all the SEO you need to know (including an interactive checklist to help keep you on top of the game)! 

In a general sense, SEO is all about establishing a strategy for your online content that will rank higher in search engine results, relative to your competitors. Search engines (such as Google, Bing & Yahoo) all have algorithms in place that “crawl” every published website on the internet 24/7 to help filter results based on what it thinks is most relevant to a user's search.

There are a number of factors that search engines look at to determine the validity of any given website, so while it may not seem like you have control over your ranking there are actually things you can do to remind the internet bots that you, your business, and your website are in fact a real, viable, and thriving business!

Here are the five main ways to help improve the SEO on your site:

1. Content

Content is still king when it comes to developing an SEO strategy! Google wants to see that your site is actively updated, and a great way to do this (particularly if you have a business where you aren't uploading new items to an online store frequently) is to consider writing a blog. If you are just starting out and committing yourself to a consistent blog schedule sounds daunting, then at least aim to update a portion of your site once a month: add a paragraph to your about page, add to your testimonials, or re-write your services description. 

Fun Fact: Web pages that are 1200+ words rank higher than pages with less content.

2. Backlinking

Another element that proves your validity to Google is when other, active, third-party sites link back to yours—and visa versa. Maybe that means you look into becoming a guest contributor for a larger organization’s blog (which is exactly why I enjoy writing these guest posts for The Paper + Craft Pantry, because it’s good for my SEO).

If that doesn’t make sense for you, then at the very least you should consider viewing your social media strategy from the it’s-building-my-SEO lens. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are all validated, “high authority” sites according to search engines. When a post on one of those platforms links back to your site, that’s great for your SEO! So it’s important to not only share your information on your social media channels, but also make it easy for visitors on your website to also share your content by adding social media sharing buttons to your site. You can think of back-linking like online karma; by actively sharing the work of others, you are generating the possibility that a wider audience will start to see your stuff and want to give back for your generosity.

Other Actionable Steps: Consider creating a Resource Page on your website where you list your favorite brands, companies, or other resources that complement your business, or share a “Links I Love” blog post every now and then.

3. Mobile Responsiveness

With as much time that we all spend on our smartphones these days, it is no longer acceptable for your site not to be mobile-friendly. And search engines will really punish you (in terms of ranking) if your site isn’t mobile responsive. If you’re unsure if your site is mobile-responsive, pull out your phone and check! You shouldn’t have to scroll left and right to read the content on the webpage, nor should you have to zoom-in to read the text. A mobile-responsive site automatically increases the text size so that you can read it easily, and so the page fits perfectly to the screen. 

4. Site Load Time

Large image and video files can slow down how quickly your site loads, and the slower your site loads, the more likely you are that people will leave. In order to limit that possibility of people leaving before they even have a chance to see your amazing content, ensure that your image files are all less than 2 MB. Ideally, your site will load in less than 5 seconds. You can test your site here to see how it ranks in your industry.

5. Meta Data

While a lot of what I've mentioned so far pertains to written content on the front-end of your site, one area that most people overlook in terms of increasing their SEO falls on the back-end—meta data. You can strengthen your meta data by adding keywords to as many places as possible on your site—including, but not limited to the way you name your image files! By renaming your images to a keyword-rich phrase, you have the possibility of ranking higher in the Google Images results. Instead of uploading “IMG_2147.jpg”, you want to rename that image file to something that describes the content of the post that it corresponds to.

For example,  the banner image on this post was renamed to “paper-craft-pantry-blog-small-business-school-guide-to-seo-printable-checklist.jpg”. When someone searches for “seo checklist” or "guide to seo" in a search engine, the hope is that this post will show up on one of the first few pages. Now, since 'SEO for beginners' is a pretty popular topic, it’s not likely that this post will end up in the Top 10 results—but each time you publish quality content with a strong keyword-rich title, associated with images that have the same and similar keywords in the file names or captions, you continue to boost your result rankings.

But be warned... there is such a thing as too many keywords (also known as Keyword Stuffing). To ensure that you aren't targeted for this, you'll want to make sure that your keyword phrases are naturally a part of the content you share. For example, if you are writing a blog post about DIY macrame planters, then an example of keyword stuffing would be if you added something like this to the very end of the post: 

"DIY macrame planters, Do It Yourself macrame, How to make a macrame planter, macrame 101, macrame for beginners, macrame basics"

Pro-Tip: Consider using those various phrases you found and rename your image files with those keyword phrases. As far as content, pick one phrase, and use it 2-3 times within the entire blog post.


While these 5 steps will definitely set you on the right path to help boost your online presence, SEO is constantly evolving, and it requires that you be patient and diligent in order to see results. Your SEO efforts are cumulative, so the more you add content to your site, the more you contribute to other blogs and the more you keep up with the SEO best practices, the better your rankings will become. If you have the capacity to earmark a budget for Google AdWords, that will also help!

Here are a few resources that have helped me with my SEO over the last two years:

Moz has so many great resources for keeping up-to-date on the latest SEO trends! If you’re wanting to learn more, I would start with their Beginner’s Guide to SEO. Moz also has a Keyword Explorer that is really helpful to utilize as you’re thinking about what to title a blog post, or new ideas for keyword phrases for the multiple images you have for your upcoming post.

Another resource that I use often is Google AdWords Keyword Planner. It’s meant to help you determine which keywords to use during an AdWords campaign, but I use it to help me think of new keywords phrases when I’m getting ready to publish a blog post. It shows you on average how many monthly searches a particular phrase received, so you can adjust your blog titles and the keyword phrases you use when naming images to a mix of those that have a high and medium range of monthly searches.

In order to use this feature, you will have to create a Google AdWords account, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend any money on an AdWords Campaign. To navigate to the Keyword Planner, follow these steps:

  1. Head over to this link.

  2. Scroll down and click on “START USING KEYWORD PLANNER”.

  3. Click the first option “Search for new keywords using a phrase, website or category”.

  4. In the first box, type the phrase you would like to search.

  5. Then scroll down and click “Get Ideas”.

  6. From there you’ll see all the possibilities of other keyword phrases that you may use.

D.I.Y.: Rope Jewelry Holder

Pei Sim


Simple DIY Rope Dishes for your collections of rings, keys, tchotchkies and knick-knacks

We're extremely guilty of hoarding cute little tchotchkes, including but not limited to miscellaneous crafting and office supplies, on our desks. Sometimes you just need a spot to gather all these odds and ends in one place! 

This month's D.I.Y. uses three materials you are likely to already have around your home, and we're particularly loving that it adds a little natural-meets-minimalist vibe to our desk decor with the perfect little pop of color! Whip these up in a matter of minutes and have the perfect way to organize all the knick-knacks you have lying around or dumped into drawers.

For Pei's home office organization tips, head over to this behind-the-scenes peek on the blog of her recently renovated studio space. 

Organize your room by learning how to make a DIY ring dish from 5 simple materials

D.I.Y. ROPE RING DISH PROJECT DURATION: 15 MINS

  • MATERIALS
  • 3/8" Cotton Cord
  • Embroidery Floss (in your favorite colors)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Small dish or bowl

1. Flip your dish or bowl upside down and add a little dab of hot glue to the end of the cotton cord and start wrapping the base of the dish. 

2. Apply hot glue on the cord as you coil it around the dish *pro-tip: wait until the entire bowl has finished cooling before you pick off the "strings" of hot glue!* 

3. As you reach the edge of the base of your bowl, continue to work down the sides of the dish and your cord will shape to the dish. 

4. For an added pop of color and to finish off the top of our rope dish, we used embroidery floss to secure + wrap around the end! 

5. Make as many as you like! Use different size dishes or bowls to create a whole set, or group of nesting rope ring dishes :)

Small Business School: The World of Freelance

Pei Sim


5 tips you need to know before quitting your job and transitioning into freelance by Emily Morgan

Freelancing seems to becoming the career trend of the decade! More and more individuals opting out of their secure, 9-5 jobs and into freelance, or contract gigs that offer more flexibility and creative freedom.

It's a scary leap, one I personally felt entirely unprepared for. No matter how many blogs or books I read of other 20-somethings who shared their struggles of building successful businesses from the ground up, nothing seemed to calm the nerves inside my body that shuttered at the thought of potentially falling flat on my face. 

The real reality is that there is no "rule book" to freelancing. Which, I also found out meant, there's no secret sauce to success. What works for one person, isn't necessarily going to work for you. But this is kind of the beauty of working for yourself—trying things until you figure out what works, and having the freedom to decide what doesn't. 

With that said, there are a few key pieces of advice that I wish I had focused more energy on in the very beginning—advice I feel every want-to-be-freelancer should know before turning in that two week notice.

1. Face Your Finances

Believe it or not, things only get more complicated financially when you're rocking that 1099 status. As a freelancer, you will likely take on the responsibilities of bookkeeper, accountant and CFO for at least for a little while until you can allocate funds to hire a professional. 

However, there are a ton of amazing apps out there now that will make this chore a little easier to face in the meantime—because, trust me, you will need to. Being someone who has never liked checking my bank account, I have particularly fallen in love with programs like Qapital, which automatically syphons out a portion of each deposit to apply to quarterly tax payments, and Quick Books, which helps me keep track of invoices, mileage and other deductions, as well as exactly what I should be paying the IRS every quarter. Here are few of my favorite money management tools:

2. Establish a Professional Community

As an introvert, this has probably been the most difficult gap for me to bridge. After a long day of work, the last thing I want to do is muster up the energy for small talk in a crowd full of strangers. I know this isn't an issue for everyone, so I won't go into details on how I overcome this. But rather, stress the importance of putting yourself out there despite any fears you might have. It really is all about who you know! 

If you're struggling to find networking opportunities, check out sites like Meet Up and Facebook to find professional networking events. A few of my favorite places to network in Austin are at the #ATXConnectionMixer, various BossBabe events, and the Paper + Craft Pantry's Small Business School #IRL panels. 

3. Determine a Schedule That is Going to Make You Happy

Not everyone is a morning person, and that's okay! Choose the hours and days you want to work, based on what works well with your current lifestyle. Do you want a traditional weekend? Do you want to work a full 40 hours a week? Will you be scheduling all of your client meetings on a certain day? 

Once you've picked your "work week," I'd recommend advertising them like you would for a retail shop or business (listing them on your website, at the footer of your emails, etc.) . Not only will it help hold you accountable, but it will your help clients know when you're easily reachable. 

4. Get to Know Your Worth

Okay. So, this may not come as a surprise to many, but pricing your services can be one of the trickiest parts of the freelance game. Even professionals who have been in the industry for several years still stress over pricing their services accordingly. It's a constant give and take. 

So, while you may feel like because you're new to the game you should charge less to build a client base, doesn't mean that you actually deserve less. Look at your finance goals (what do you want to be making every year + business overhead + an additional 30% for taxes) and price yourself accordingly. It's okay to cut discounts or offer trade deals for projects you believe will help grow your brand, just keep in mind that it's very hard to raise rates once you set them. 

5. Don't Get Hung Up on Being a Newb

Literally everyone in the industry has been where you are right now. Wondering if chasing this crazy dream is worth it, whether they're worth it, or whether they'll even make it.

What I've found the most reassuring is that, while freelancing can feel like this daunting solo journey, the truth is there are SO many people out there who are willing to support you along the way. Don't be afraid to own your newbie status! 

No one has gotten where they are today by doing it alone. And chances are, if you open up about your struggles and fears, there will be people jumping at the bit to encourage you or share how they overcame a similar situation when they were first starting out. There is a whole community waiting to meet and support your dream! 

Some say that freelancing isn't for the faint of heart...and that may be true in some respects because it is hard work. But (while I know it's sometimes hard to internalize) I truly believe that you are capable of paving the path you dream of walking in life! It may not be an easy journey, but it is so worth it

How-To: Flat Lay 101

Pei Sim


Achieving the Perfect Flat-Lay Photo for Instagram

Who doesn't love a perfect flat lay!?

How many times have you been scrolling through Instagram and can't help but give a good ol' double tap on a really well-styled flat lay picture? These aerial-view photos are visually stunning and can be a really great way to add some consistency to your feed, or even serve as a great styled product picture for your retail website. But let's be honest, even non-business owners can appreciate an Insta-worthy photo when they see one. 

We decided to let y'all in on our secrets behind creating the flat lays you see on our Instagram. And the best part is, you don't even need a fancy camera! 

The Paper+Craft Pantry How-To Perfect Your Instagram Flat Lays
How To Achieve the Perfect Flat Lay Photo for Your Business Instagram
How To take the Perfect Flat Lay Photo for Instagram
  • FLAT LAY TOOL KIT
  • Foam board (one as a background + one to bounce light)
  • Styling accessories
  • iPhone
  • Editing app (we use Color Story)

Steps To Creating A Flat Lay:

1. Get a couple pieces of foam board—it's light, versatile and makes your surface portable! *Pro-Tip: Your background doesn't have to be white, so don't be afraid to get creative! Use a colorful foam board, beautiful sheet of wrapping paper, vinyl, or a sample piece of wallpaper...there are so many options!*

2. Find a space with diffused, natural lighting!

3. Decide if your flat lay is going to be portrait, landscape, or cropped into a square. This will help you lay things out to make sure it fits in your screen/lens.

4. Arrange from the center outwards. It's up to you on how to lay out your visual pieces! You can make a specific product the focal point, create a pattern, go with a color scheme, etc. Don't be afraid to keep things minimal, or even add in extra greenery or flowers to make your flat lay feel more full! 

5. You're going to want to elevate yourself (stand on a chair, or invest in a tripod + extension arm) to take a shot from a bird's eye point of view. *Pro-Tip: Use another piece of white foam board to balance out the light/shadow by having someone/or something hold it above your shot.  

6. Using your editing app, play around with the curves to remove shadows. Bump up your contrast and brightness. There's no exact formula for the best edited photos, so have fun developing your own editing style.

Small Business Chats: On Running a Small Business in Multiple Cities

Small Business School 10 Minutes with Kelly McGraw with Pink Champagne Paper

Kelly Medanich, of Pink Champagne Paper, is an award-winning stationer, recently named "Best in Weddings" by The Knot. Her business has grown dramatically since starting in 2012, with her business expanding from Dallas to Austin this past year. So, we wanted to sit down with her for this edition of "10 Minutes With..." to gain some insight on her small business strategies—particularly how she manages operations out of multiple cities. In this interview, Kelly also reveals how her obsession with Target fueled her inspiration behind one of her favorite invitation designs! 

In case you're interested in learning Kelly's beautiful modern + whimsical calligraphy style, she will be in the studio next week (September 30th) teaching our Intro to Modern Calligraphy workshop. There are a limited number of tickets available, so you'll want to reserve your spot today!

Small Business School Interview with Denise Roberts of Love Ding Home Staging & Interior Styling in Austin, Texas

For those who don’t know, tell us more about what you do at Pink Champagne Paper:

Find out what Denise Roberts of Love Ding has to say about Owning a Small Business, Vintage Home goods and who you should be following on Instagram!

I wear many hats at Pink Champagne Paper, but I guess most business owners do right?! Not only do I design wedding invitations and oversee the creative direction of the brand, but I also manage the majority of the behind-the-scenes tasks such as finances and marketing. We actually just expanded our team to include a client and marketing manager who will be the primary contact for our clients, and take a big role in our marketing duties. This will be a great new way to serve our clients even better, and we are so excited! 

Real talk: Owning a business can be hard, what’s a small business lesson you wish you would have known when you got started or wish you could tell your past self?

Gosh how much time do I have here? Haha. I think the most valuable lesson I wish I would have known from the beginning was to be organized with my finances and bookkeeping straight out of the gate. Since Pink Champagne Paper started and grew so organically from the beginning, I didn't really have a plan for our finances. One day, I realized my excel spreadsheet I slopped together wasn't really working like I planned. I would tell small business owners who are just starting out to get organized with their bookkeeping, and set up some sort of accounting system like QuickBooks or FreshBook. This will really change the way you run your business!

What's your proudest small business moment so far?

This year we won The Knot Best of Weddings for invitations. It came as a complete surprise, so it was humbling to receive an award from a website I have admired for so long. 

Your business started out in Dallas, but you now live in Austin. How are you balancing your operations in two different cities?

I started Pink Champagne Paper while I was living in Dallas. But since my husband and I got married last June, I moved our headquarters to Austin where my husband was living at the time. My original plan was to go back-and-forth from Dallas to Austin a couple times a month—I must have been kidding myself. There was just too much driving, and it was cutting too much into my work time! Since then I hired a designer in Dallas who would be able to meet with clients. And now, our client manager is also responsible for meeting with clients when needed; however, luckily most of our business is conducted over email and phone. Email and phone communication actually seems to be the best and preferred way to communicate these days, since we have clients all over the country—from Colorado to Georgia!

What was the hardest part about finding this balance? Do you have any resources you would share with another small business going through the same thing?  

Finding balance is pretty difficult. I'm still learning how to juggle everything by planned ahead as best I can. Marking down which days I'll be gone helps a lot, since I can know ahead of time if work needs to get done before I leave or if it can wait until after I get back. Also hiring someone local and part-time was a huge help just knowing I had someone there as a plan b (or plan a) if I was not able to make it back in time for something. 

Asking for help and hiring someone to support your business can be difficult, what’s some of your best advice for someone looking to grow their team? 

Choose wisely and start small! Our businesses are such big parts of our lives, and they are essentially an extension of ourselves, which makes hiring someone and giving up a piece of what we do that much harder. Take your time to interview your candidates and then start them with a small list of to-dos. As they grow with you, their responsibilities will also grow. I've found this to be best for both the business owner and the new team member. 

What’s the best way you have found to manage your team, particularly when you’re not physically in the same office as them? 

We have weekly calls every Monday to go over what we're working on and as an opportunity for the team to ask specific questions they may have. Usually I like to save questions or advice for this call, since it's a more efficient way to manage all our time. But of course if anyone needs anything throughout the week we're always texting or can jump on a call if needed. We also just started using Google Docs, which I'm pretty excited about! Now we can all be working on a document together, such as client updates and to-do lists. This has also been another great way for my team to ask questions. 


Join us on September 30th, 2017 with Kelly McGraw, of Pink Champagne Paper, for the Intro to Modern Calligraphy Workshop in Austin, Texas 

Join Kelly in the studio next weekend!

INTRO TO MODERN CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH
1PM - 3:30PM


Pink Champagne Paper is known for beautiful lettering and classic invitations, where do you get your design inspiration?

Usually my graphic design inspiration comes from other design outlets like interior design or fashion design. When I'm not working, I'm usually pinning interior design images or watching HGTV, which is probably why I find a lot of inspiration from interiors. But honestly I also find inspiration in the most random of places... One of my favorite invitation suites I ever designed was inspired from a coaster I saw at Target! 

In a world of social media, what are some of your favorite Instagram accounts you follow? 

I love Lauren Conrad, Ginny Au, Papel & Co, and Nutrition by Kara. They all inspire me in different ways and make me feel good! When I'm scrolling through social media, that's exactly what I want to feel: happy and inspired. 

If you had to guess an upcoming design trend for the stationery/invitation industry, what would it be?

I've done a lot of wax seals lately, as well as vellum overlays and vellum envelopes. I think another upcoming trend is minimalism, and I can't wait to incorporate this style into my new designs!

Paper Craft Pantry House Plant Care Guide + Watering Schedule Printable

Anyone else feel like they are approaching the status of crazy plant lady? There's something about live greenery that just makes every space a bit better, don't you think?

Through quite a bit of trial and error, guidance from our friends who were seemingly born with a green thumb, and a lot of patience... We finally feel like we have a better grasp on keeping the plant babies in the studio alive.

Before we dive into this post, let us be very clear that we are by no means plant experts. You could say our thumbs are only a light shade of green—not up-to par with seasoned gardeners or nursery owners. So if any of you reading this have any additional tips or advice, we'd love to hear from you in the comments below!

INDOOR PLANTS

We have a total of twenty-five (and counting!) potted plants in our studio. Yup, you heard it right, over twenty-five! And we are pretty proud to boast that two of them have been with us since we opened back in 2015! A lot of the success of keeping our studio plants happy was learning to pick ones that were going to thrive inside our studio. Our studio gets incredible natural light through two big skylights; but as for direct sunlight, we only have two smaller windows on one side of our space. 

PLANT ROUND-UP

Our goal was to round up a list of (practically) no-kill plants—in terms of both sunlight and upkeep. Here are 5 of our favorites that have proven very successful at The Paper + Craft Pantry:

Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)

We've got three of these guys in our studio sitting on a ledge overlooking our studio. Our former studio neighbor, who happens to be a florist, helped us pick out these plants earlier during the spring time. And, boy, have these guys sprouted up over the past year. They have grown a ton, and we're constantly having to "train" the vines by weaving them around little nooks and crannies. It's hard to imagine that little ledge without these plants on them because they look like they belonged there from the get-go. They thrive naturally with low light, but love the skylights so their vines tend to grow towards the light source.
Our Watering Schedule: Once every other week.

Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

This guy thrives in low light, so he does really well no matter where we put him in our studio. On occasion we move him to the window in our office to get a smidge more light!
Our Watering Schedule: Whenever we remember (seriously!)

ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)

We have several of these in our studio and they seem to be loving just the right amount of natural light they get from being out in the open area, under the sky lights. We've seen some new growth and baby leaves, so they seem to be pretty happy. We've got a couple of smaller ones but currently have our big ZZ plant near our register in a pretty low-light area.
Our Watering Schedule: Once every other week, or when the soil feels dry.

Pygmy Palm

We brought the tropical vibes into our shop with this fella! Since it is a palm, they prefer more water and humidity so we placed our palm as far away from our AC units as possible! 
Our Watering Schedule: Weekly.

Monstera

We got this Monstera several months ago at the most unlikely place, IKEA! And he's truly thrived in our shop! He's literally doubled in size and has produced so many new leaves we can tell he's a happy camper! We rotate the planter every month or so since the leaves tend to "reach" and lean towards light.
Our Watering Schedule: Weekly. 

CARE + WATERING

One of the biggest learning curves we've had in the studio with keeping our plants happy was to figure out a watering schedule to keep them all hydrated.

We are most guilty of over-watering some of our plants that don't need that much water, and accidentally neglecting the ones that prefer more.

Want a way to keep track and schedule watering times for your plants? We designed this plant care guide so we, as a team, can track which plants need our attention.
