Below is a quick and random timeline:
I jumped on and realized that I could create my own Twitter background. So I did. That led to a friend who asked if I could create one for them. This led to another friend asking if I can create a background for their Non-Profit organization. He said to leave your Image Designs logo on there.
Out of the blue… David Damore (@Admore) DM’d me and asked, “How much are your backgrounds?”
I said, “What? How much? People would buy these?” — that began a 5 month journey.
In August of 2008 we launched TweetPages.com — first providing Twitter backgrounds. We now offer matching YouTube, Facebook Sidebars and Facebook FanPages.
During a time when the economy was sinking… we were launching a new business.
Sometimes when you realize the boat is sinking and your bucket has a hole in it… you figure out a way to empty the water.
