Thank you so much for thinking about working with me! I am kind of a weird entrepreneur (or as I am finding out I am a normal entrepreneur and we are all weird!) So I tried the “normal” route of having a marketing company and just being a speaker, but I missed the challenge of selling. So I have opened a number of stores where you can buy all different kinds of things from me!
Marketing Artfully Shop – Shopify
Marketing Artfully Shop – Here is where you will find all my classes, courses and forms all in one place. This is the place where you are most directly connected to my work and which I run and manage myself! You can find help there for writers, realtors, etsy sellers and most everything that I cover on my blog! shop now
Selling On Etsy
Alrighty then, I know that many of you have heard me give interviews on different shows about how I like to sell on Etsy. I actually have two stores that sell very different types of things.
Paperly People on Etsy – This is my flagship store on Etsy where I sell productivity, sales and marketing forms as well as work necklaces. I would think that if you are an entrepreneur like me, this might be a great place for you to check out if you want to get more organized and focused!
Glamorously Vintage on Etsy – This is for my photographers and stylists who need interesting and creative things for styling and staging photos. It also has great decorating and crafting items. All items in this shop are vintage with age and patina (a really nice way of saying rusty and “fun old”. This has been an interest for me for a while and I finally figured out how to make it a “real” business!

Selling On Ebay
Paperly People On Ebay – I am newer to eBay selling, but am super excited about the opportunities to learn new things! I have a store over there that has a huge mix of different items that are maybe just not right for selling on Etsy. Because Ebay allows such different items, it is interesting to be able to branch out a bit!
Marketing Artfully – Marketing For Rebel Entrepreneurs, Realtors, Writers and Ecommerce Sellers
Paperly People – Planners, Time Management, Organization
Glamorously Vintage – Photography Styling, Vintage Office and Craft Supplies

Nice Things They Say
Tara has such passion for what she does! She draws you in with her enthusiasm that you can’t help but leave any training session with a renewed outlook on your business! She spends time speaking one on one with you before and after training sessions which leaves you feeling truly ‘cared for’ in her sessions! If you haven’t been to see her speak, put it on the top of your TO DO list! – Tanya
Your sense of humor grabbed everyone and your use of everyone’s name made a strong connection (even with Phil) and you told it like it is. Very refreshing. Christine Metzger – Upscale Plus Consignment, Wheat Ridge CO
Teach my group
Many small business owners want a more intimate learning environment than they can get during a workshop training session. I am happy to come out to teach to groups of 10 or more at a cost of $100 per attendee in the Tampa Bay are. This is the same great training you get from my regular workshops, just on your timeline! If you would like me to come out and speak, please give me a call!
Realtor© Marketing Speaker
Tara works with brokers and MLS boards to provide quality keynotes for annual meetings as well as shorter, lunch-and-learn type settings.
Speaking fees are affordable and negotiable depending on the topic and group.
If you are looking for a great hands-on Realtor© marketing workshop, we can tailor an event focused on Realtor© marketing, internet marketing, social media or how to service your sellers.
Your training sessions today were so terrific – like I said that is the 1st time I’ve been at a seminar or training session that I didn’t put on my sunglasses even once (to take a quick snooze)!!!!! Also, I’d like to thank you for the personal help you gave me afterwards – that meant so much to me because it would have taken me forever to figure out what you did so quickly & effortlessly!!!!! You’re quite a gal & I feel very fortunate to have met you!! Keep up the GOOD WORK!!!!! Helen L. Maday Realtor©
Courses and Training
Target. Strategize. Implement.
Ready, shoot, aim is not a strategy, it is a tactic and one that can be super efficient in the short term. But often you will wind up with all kinds of loose ends, dropped balls and broken plans lying around when the smoke clears.
The first step in creating your fabulous life is to figure out exactly who you want to work with. Whether this is targeting an entire industry like Realtors or just 20 authors you want to work with, figuring out their Perfect Customer Profile or Avatar is the easiest way to get started in an intelligent, focused manner.
Once you know your audience, you need to set up a campaign to reach them so they know to buy from you. This could be on the internet with social and a website or in real life with direct mail, networking and belly-to-belly field work. The most important thing is that you have a battle plan that you can implement against.
Now to what you are probably great at, but this time your work will have a focus. It is much easier to know where you are going when you have a map…the implementation plan we work out together is that map. While there is a whole lot of leeway here, generally if you know what you need to do every day, week or month to hit your goals, getting there is much easier!
DWY | Strategic Marketing Mentoring
If you are the strong-willed creative type, you probably don’t need someone to hold your hand or help you “check in” daily. In fact, your problem is probably the opposite! People around you telling you to slow down or quit being so driven.
Mostly what I do is help you to make a focused, creative campaign and then provide the bumpers on the edges to make sure you stay on track. If you would like to find out more email me to schedule a 15 minute “get to know you” session where we can see if we would be a good fit to work together. Tara (at) MarketingArtfully.com.

All of the ideas for the mini courses come from YOU! Entrepreneurs, Realtors and Writers who are out working and just need to know how to do something without all the fluff around it. They are all less than a hour to learn (by design) and should only take an afternoon to implement!
