If the emails you receive in your inbox don't excite you, you should search the web, and subscribe to newsletters that you can't wait to open and read.
I wanted to share some of the email subscriptions that excite me, that I pay attention to on a daily and weekly basis.
I'll begin with the newsletter I receive every Sunday.
I know, without fail, when I open my inbox on Sunday, I'm going to see an email that says,
"Good Morning Kathy" from S. Anthony Iannarino from the http://thesalesblog.com/.
I look forward to them.
Anthony always has some really good information to share about the ways and means of sales.
This morning he touched base about "the order of things".
If you don't keep things in their proper order, it can cause confusion with your company and your customers.
It's like that old saying you might have heard when you were growing up about not putting the "cart before the horse". That just doesn't work out real well, does it?
Here's a little taste of this morning's newsletter from the sales blog.
"The order in which you put things matters. Lots of things are important, but by changing the order you get very different outcomes."

What in the world does this have to do with the design business, you ask?
We can't sell our designs until we create them, what I mean is, we have to create unique designs that our idea marketplace will purchase.
With all the magnificent designs that are in the marketplace already, it's going to take some real ingenuity to come up with a design that someone can't live without.
We've been stocking our spoonflower shop with designs that are nice, but there's not been one of them that's caught anybody's eye enough for them to purchase it.
So I had to backtrack and put things in the correct order.
Learn first, then design.
Sometimes it works out where you don't have to go through a process, but most times, like Anthony stated, "order matters".
I'll write about other emails and newsletters that excite me in future post.
