Another Team Intern meeting down!
This week we are focusing a lot on the execution of our open house at our new shop. This includes getting out invitations, planning a menu, and making sure the shop is in tip-top condition. We want to show off our new location and car detailing brand.
I have been working on getting a logo for our auto detailing with another intern, Dallas. So far, I have hired 3 different people from an online site called odesk to create drafts of the logo. These are people from all around the world who have varying degrees of graphic design talent and will work for anywhere starting as low as $0.67 an hour! Through this I learned that often times, price is a good indicator of quality. Dallas is also looking into a local graphic designer that he knows to see what he can come up with. At this point, it is just a waiting game to see who can come up with the best design.
At the Team Intern meeting, our discussion focused on the uses and benefits of social media. Lewis explained that social media is valuable in order to remind potential customers that we are active and knowledgeable about our work. Posting before and after pictures or how to videos is something that First Mate does to show our customers what we have been up to. It also allows us to be more present and easily found on the internet. These are very important things to keep in mind when running a business.
