Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Jaiden Sky. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Hi Jaiden, thanks for joining us today. Do you manage your own social media?
As a small business owner, I wear plenty of hats! One of them being my own social media manager. I personally find enjoyment with managing my socials, through strategy and creativity! These platforms have helped me market myself and network with those who I might not reach otherwise! Social media can be an incredible growth tool for independent creators! I probably spend just as much time focused on growth here as I do actually tattooing!
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
Allow me to introduce myself, I am a tattoo artist located in southern Oregon at a quaint little shop by the name of Sub Rosa. I have been a licensed tattoo artist for the past 4 years, and have spent that time developing my style as an artist. I prefer to take on projects that align well with my style of fine-line black and grey and inspires me with subject matter. My love for botanicals and natural elements influence much of my creativity and artworks. Often, I prefer to freehand most of my artworks. During an appointment, I do my best to focus on client care while providing a safe and inclusive space for all.
Any advice for growing your clientele? What’s been most effective for you?
I ask many of my new clients how they found me, and it’s been unanimous: Instagram! While I’ve made myself available on many social media platforms, majority of my client base comes from Instagram these days! This can be an incredible tool for growth! Personally, I keep my Instagram as if it’s an online portfolio that links to my website that has all the information you’d need to schedule with me! I’ve created a very streamlined and efficient way of finding and contacting me!
But all would be none without the quality artwork to show for it!
How do you keep in touch with clients and foster brand loyalty?
My wants and wishes for my business as a brand is to offer a safe and inclusive environment. While I do my best to keep healthy boundaries around contact and scheduling. I do also put care and intention into my communication with clients; before, during, and after the appointments! I’m always happy to offer advice, peace of mind, or referrals to perspective clients. And I hope by the end of a long session, my clients walk away feeling like they’ve gained a new friend!
Tattooing is such an intimate exchange of energy. Most of all I just hope to foster genuine connection!
