So I got this brainwave of a marketing idea. Yesterday I thought it was the cleverest thing ever, but I woke up this morning thinking it might possibly the most stupid. Those two thoughts cannot simultaneously be true!
What I thought of was having temporary tattoos made that say Fine Mess Pottery. You know, get the name out there in a fun way. I even went so far as to design a colorful image that might work...but are the people who would wear a temporary tattoo the same people who are interested in pottery? And how would I find those people, to give them the tats? I could include on as a thank you gift whenever I ship out orders, but that doesn't happen often enough to justify buying a thousand rub-on tattoos. Maybe hand them out at NCECA? If I can afford to go to NCECA.
But I am still tempted. It seems fun and sort of outside-the-box; but sometimes things are outside the box because that's where they should stay. What do you think? Would you wear a Fine Mess Pottery tattoo for a day?
