Small Business Spotlight Of the Week Laura | February 11th, 2010
Every week we send out our crowdSPRING newsletter (subscribe to the right of this post) and at the bottom we give you an option to send us an email if you would like your small business to be featured in our upcoming news letters or blogs. Shortly after our first newsletter with our new website we received an email from Rays. Ray and his two partners are fashion designers from India launching their line and finding their way in the fashion industry. They’ve shown their line at a number of shows, including Chennai International Fashion.
Their label is “Radhika, Revathi, n Rays” and they’re doing everything they can to make their dreams come true. Check out their portfolio!
crowdSPRING is also a small business and we love to help other small business get noticed. We’re excited that our little company has reached people in the fashion industry in India – it’s crazy how many people you can touch simply being on the internet.
I had an opportunity to talk with Rays about a few things and this is what he had to share…
1. How did you get things designed before crowdSPRING?
As we are designers ourselves… we have always preferred to do it ourselves… we do seek advice from experts if there is anything different to be designed..but at the end…it’s our work .
2. Why in the world did you decide to use crowdSPRING?!
CS is a pool of boundless creativity . you ask for one idea and you get thousands…. something you might have never even dreamt of … possibilities are immense here …to design ..to get ideas and also to improve what i already know .
3. What’s the single best small biz resource that you’ve found (magazine, website, blog, etc.)?
I feel magazines are the best as people tend to spend lots of time with magazines.. things might get away unnoticed while accessing websites or blogs as we don’t really spend much time on a particular page .
4. If your best friend told you they were going to start a business, what’s the ONE piece of advice you’d give them?
i shall advise “doesn’t matter how good you are at your work…it s nothing until you know how to sell it and unless others get to know what you’re doing ”
