A little self-promotion and a 50% off coupon code

As a marketing professional, I’ve promoted a lot of products and services for other people and companies over the past 15 years. And I’m quite good at it, mostly because I’ve had a lot of practice. Promoting myself has been a different story. I first had to promote my freelance business as a marketing communications & PR consultant when I started it two years ago. I didn’t like doing it then and I still don’t like doing it today. I’m lucky enough (or maybe I’ve built the right website, with keywords highlighting my expertise) to have most of my new clients contact me first, rather than the other way around.

But then I worked on getting my photography business off the ground. First I launched my nature photography website and announced it here. Your positive responses and support blew my mind away and encouraged me to continue.

So today I have a few more things to announce. Yes, I’m promoting myself once again and I have no shame in doing so. After all, it’s my job and I’m not going to pay someone else to do it for me!

Like Milka Pejovic Photography on Facebook1) I’ve launched my new Facebook business fan page for my photography and I’d love for you to “like” the page. I’ll post new photos, as well as new products I’ve created and coupon codes for my online store, so don’t miss out! If you have a business page you want me to like in return, please let me know.

2) My 2013 12-month photo calendar is now available for sale on my Zazzle online store. Carrie at The Write Transition was my first guinea pig most appreciated customer to purchase a few of them and they arrived in her mailbox just a few days later.

Today only, Veteran’s Day, use code: 50VETDAYSALE at checkout and get my calendar for 50% off! You can also get 40% off my ornaments and 15% off on most other products. Visit my Zazzle store now.

If you’re looking to make a nice and unique gift to someone for the holidays, you’ll want to take a closer look. I also sell a number of other products, including posters, mousepads, phone and Kindle cases, and coasters, so go over to check it out. This is the link for anyone located in the USA and wanted to ship any of my products within the US.

    Beautiful calendar. It won’t have Canadian hols on though will it. I’ll think about it. You have a lot of businesses :)

    • Thank you! Good point about the holidays but I think when you log into your country’s site, you should get calendars with your specific holidays. Unfortunately I just realized my products don’t display right on the Canadian website, so I’m looking into it. Zazzle has coupon deals all the time, so let me see if I can fix it all before the next one, and maybe you can take another look for Canada.

  2. I can attest–the calendars are lovely! As is my mouse pad, and I should have some coasters soon. These type of things make great teacher gifts, and for that I am grateful to you, because I’m always at a loss as to what to get them. Congratulations on your accomplishments! I’m so impressed with what you’ve put together. (And thanks for the mention!)

    Now I’m off to tweet this post. :)

  3. Best of luck with your sales, Milka. Your photos are always top notch!

    • Thanks, Nancy! If you’re looking for a 2013 calendar for yourself or friends and family, you know where to look! I just ordered several of them today as Christmas gifts. It will be nice to see all my work put together in one final product.

  4. What awesome work you do, Milka! I especially love the lemon. :) It looks like I could reach out my hand and pluck it off!

  5. Just “liked” it. And I really did like it!

  6. Good for you! You are a very talented photographer. If I can ever get my act together, I may even buy a calendar.
