Mentor Aisling Nelson

Expertise: Blogging, online communications, design

Personal Summary:

“The goal isn’t to have the loudest voice on the internet. It’s to have a voice: your voice.”

As a creative person, I am fascinated by how we tell the story of what we do. Many artists and designers consider the word marketing to be a dirty word! I want to bust that belief.
Marketing now is about building relationships and trust. At Three Thought Bubbles, I train businesses how to be more human on the web. I show you how to choose words, messages, images and conversations that tell the story of your business, both on and off the web. But most of all, I inspire you to talk confidently about what it is that you love to do!

My design background:
Prior to Three Thought Bubbles, I owned Rangoli jewellery for fifteen years. I designed bridal jewellery to order. Before I discovered how to blog, I found it difficult and costly to promote my business. My jewellery blog had a huge impact on my business and won several awards. I set up Three Thought Bubbles so I could share these skills with other creative owners.

Mentoring Experience:
I mentor businesses on a range of topics, from business visioning to blogging. I help people to strip back the fluff to get to the core of what they do and who they help. My experience of running a craft business means that I understand the day to day challenges involved. I use visual and written storytelling techniques to help businesses in the following areas:
  ●  How to know and live your brand 

  ●  How to humanise your brand on the web 

  ●  How to communicate your business story 

  ●  How to own and develop your online reputation
