In episode one we explored the ‘why’ behind starting a tarot business. In this episode we look at how to get started.
The main thing that you need to do is just start! We find so many reasons to hold us back but the best thing to do is just start.
I laugh about the fact that my first ever website was really really bad! However, it did the job and got me to where I am today. If I had waited to be perfect I would still be waiting to launch!
Go for it!
The main thing is that you have your tarot reading skills down and hopefully you have started to gather some feedback and even a fan base.
Maybe you have an ‘in-person’ client base but you now want to take your skills to the wider world by going online.
What do you need?
You will absolutely need an online presence. The main thing that I want to to learn from this podcast is that you don’t have to be scared.
You might want to pay somebody to do this for you, however, I think it’s good to learn on your own. It will be a huge learning curve but it will be worth it in the long term.
You will save a heap of money and you will be up-skilling at the same time. It’s a win/win.
Don’t think that you need all the bells and whistles – you can keep your website super simple.
Here are some of the tools references in the episode:
Domain name: – https://au.godaddy.com/
WordPress.org – this is my recommendation
When I first started my WordPress website I found the guys at WP Beginner very helpful. You can buy your hosting through them and they will set up the website for you – https://www.wpbeginner.com/
What’s needed on your website?
The main 2 recommendations I would have are a blog. We talk about the benefits of content and how it can help you get found.
You will also need a shop so people have the ability to buy.
I know that you may be overwhelmed by all of this but I can assure you I was not technical at all when I started.
Try to enjoy the process and see where it takes you. Remember that if it always gets too much you will be able to pay for somebody to help you.
