This is such a wonderful article! Dawn, you are an incredible macrame artist! I adore my bracelet and necklace from you! Super story. Thanks for sharing it with us:)

Hey Dawn! Well, you inspired me to find the article through owning a few of your incredible pieces. I already admire you and your work though chatting with you but seeing (or reading, rather) the process that you went through to get to this point was truly amazing and humbling. Too often "handmades" are dismissed by those who know not what they speak of and your description of your process as an Artist should put to rest any thoughts that just anyone can do these things. You have clearly put time, time, time, talent and heart into all that you do and your jewelry (and words) are a beautiful tribute to those that taught you. I am anxious to see you evolve even further. much love, mama! ellen

I have never been to any of those countries but oh my,what a great idea to go and learn from them!!! I know bracelets myself and I only learned it from books and friends. But being on the beach and learning from real artists must be something unbelievable(kind of holiday I would like to go to!) Good luck with your next trips :) Veronika

I, for one, am truly impressed by the inspired manner in which you went about learning something new. It is in the truest spirit of play and youthful adventure. What an enriching and meaningful trip it must have been. Knotting is a beautiful art form but, it is your vision that is the most exciting! Thanks for sharing :-)

I'm so glad to see more people that love macrame. I got into it on my first mat leave and hooked ever since. I am always looking for new techniques to learn. What a great way to plan a trip.

A Consumer’s Market

With the recent surge of vehicle purchases and influx of used cars re-entering the market, simple economics point to an impending consumer market for the auto retail industry. New vehicle demand will dip, which puts customers in a situation of power. With more and more dealers fighting over smaller pieces of the pie, they cannot rely on traditional sales practices to win over customers.

One of the changing expectations (read as requirements) is a personalized experience. Dealers rarely need to inform customers of the vehicle specifications when they enter the dealership; customers get that info online. What dealers need to focus on is owning the customer experience.

One way to create a more Thomas Sabo Skull With Lily Blackened Bead KFthEisMVR
experience is to identify customers and the platforms they use for research and then market to them with a customized message. With technology, you can virtually read a customer’s mind — or at least make a pretty good guess about your audiences’ interests based on online actions.

A “Good, Better, and Best” Approach to Marketing

The Good: Traditional Marketing

Dealers often personalize marketing based on a bit of research. They gather information from their CRMs, geographic and demographic information, regional market trends, and inventory cycles.

The most basic form of tailored marketing attempts to speak to large, general audiences. Segmenting audiences and marketing to these groups can help increase marketing ROI. However, this is only step one, and it is where most dealers stop.

Customers expect to be, at the very least, shown relevant material. With traditional marketing, blanketing an audience with information will reach the right customers but also the wrong ones, too. And the further and wider the approach, the more expensive marketing becomes. Why spend the dollars if you are wasting the vast majority on people who aren’t interested or in the right situation to purchase your product? Customers today demand an even more tailored experience than simply advertising available inventory and store hours to them. What can your brand do specifically for them?

The Better: Retargeting and Remarketing

The average customer today interacts with 19 digital touch-points when researching a vehicle. What if one of those 19 touch-points was your website? How are you winning over that visitor and placing your dealership top of mind once he or she leaves?
